31 Days to Prepare for Baby, Day 28- Packing the Hospital Bag

I didn't pack a bag beforehand when I had the Big One. I had plenty of time & I really didn't feel like I was missing anything! Although, we stayed in the hospital for EXACTLY 24 hours after he was born. I honestly just wanted to be at home. Everyone says "Get your rest in the hospital!" Seriously? Who can sleep there?!

For me:
-Change of clothes (something stretchy that I won't mind throwing away after)
-Headbands/ponytail holders
-Personal hygiene bag (shampoo, conditioner, body wash, toothbrush, toothpaste, etc)
-Cell phone charger
-Extra bag to shove all the hospital goodies in (diapers, receiving blankets, everything we can grab!)

For the husband:
-Change of clothes (just in case he drives me to the hospital in his jammies!)
-Cash for vending machines

For the Big One:
-Special "Big Brother" Surprise for when he comes to visit. Now, I just need to figure out what it will be! I was thinking a watch? That's pretty cool for a big boy, right?

Also, I will need to pack a bag for the Big One in case he will need to stay overnight with our neighbors.

Any fabulous hospital must haves??


  1. Maybe you could get him one of those little kid cameras. I noticed he loves taking pics!

    1. Great idea! We were going to get him one for Christmas, but I think we'll give it to him as a big brother present. It seems very grown up :)
