6. SLIPPERS | HOSPITALS ARE COLD AND THESE WERE PERFECT TO SLIP ON WHEN WALKING AROUND THE ROOM. A LOT OF PEOPLE RECOMMENDED WE BRING SOCKS WITH GRIPPIES, I BROUGHT THEM BUT NEVER WORE THEM. I PREFERED THE SLIPPERS!
HONESTLY, THE HOSPITAL HAS SO MUCH FOR YOU TO USE ON BABY (DIAPERS, WIPES, HAT, SWADDLE, SNOT SUCKER BULB) I WOULD ONLY BRING SPECIFICS THAT YOU WANT TO USE ON YOUR BABY.
THE FIRST SHOWER YOU TAKE AFTER DELIVERY IS GLORIOUS, BUT YOU WILL WANT TO BRING YOUR FAVORITE PRODUCTS FROM HOME TO MAKE YOU FEEL MORE COMFORTABLE. THIS WAS RECOMMENDED TO US BY SEVERAL NURSES AND OTHER NEW MOMS!
18. PLASTIC ZIPPER POUCHES | A FUNCTIONAL CASE FOR ALL OF YOUR GOODIES. I PLAN TO USE THESE WHEN I TRAVEL WITH GEORGE TOO. I BOUGHT THE SMALL AND MEDIUM SIZES.
19. FACIAL ROUTINE | YOU GUYS KNOW I LOVE INDIE LEE. I BOUGHT THIS LITTLE TRAVEL SIZE KIT AND IT WAS PERFECT TO USE WHILE IN THE HOSPITAL. HONESTLY, YOUR SKIN FEELS SO DRY AFTER LABOR. BRING PRODUCTS THAT WILL GIVE YOU SOME HYDRATION AND MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE AT HOME.
THESE MIGHT SEEM LIKE OBVIOUS ONES, BUT WHEN YOU ARE IN A PANIC OR RUSHING OUT OF THE DOOR, YOU WILL BE GLAD THESE WERE SET ASIDE AND READY TO GO.
PLAYLIST SET UP FOR LABOR | I WAS SO GLAD I HAD A PLAYLIST READY TO GO. I DID NOT HAVE NEAR ENOUGH SONGS THOUGH!
TREATS FOR NURSES AS A THANK YOU | WE ORDERED SEVERAL PIZZAS FOR THE NIGHT SHIFT AND TIFFS TREATS FOR THOSE WORKING THE DAY SHIFT. THEY LOVED THE GOODIES!
