Our Storksak Hospital Bags
Drew and I both got matching Storksak Cabin Wheeled Carry-on Bags that have an amazing hanging organizer inside. You can actually hang up the inside organizer in a closet or whoever, so you don’t have to unpack and unfold everything in your bag. So genius!! These rolling duffels are the perfect bags to take with us to the hospital. They are perfect for general travel to, and they’re really light-weight and so functional. We love them! 🙂 They fit everything we need for us, the baby, and they still have room left in them for last minute items. I got the grey color (which is so cute!) and Drew got the classic black color for his.
Robe: This robe from Cosabella matches my cute little nightshirt and it’s perfect to throw on over my nursing nightgown in case I get chilly. It’s so much cuter and softer than the hospital robe, and I plan on changing into this soon after she’s born. I also love this monogrammed robe, and its also so soft and comfy!
2 Nursing Bras – I love these Never Say Never Mommie Nursing Bras from Cosabella. They’re pretty, soft, comfy, and so functional. They are pricier, but I’ve tried on sooo many nursing bras and they’re either comfy and super hideous or they’re just okay looking at so uncomfortable/itchy. I love the fabric on these, and totally feel like they’re worth the investment. I have the blush (nude), black, and light pink. I sized up to a L in these because I know that I will get bigger as I start to breastfeed.
1 Nursing Nightgown: This Cosabella Never Say Never Mommie Babydoll Nightgown iss the same style as my nursing bras. It’s so soft + comfortable and fits TTS. I have my normal Medium in the graphite and pink colors.
2 Sets of Pajamas: For me, I want something super soft and breathable. I’m typically pretty hot natured, and love super-soft things, especially when I’m not feeling well. This button down nightshirt is amazing for so many reasons. It’s super soft, it buttons all the way down making it easy to breastfeed in, and I know the doctors/nurses will be coming in frequently to check me, so I don’t want to constantly have to think about taking off and putting back on pajama shorts/pants. 🙂
Boyshort Undies: My mom raves about the mesh undies that the hospital gives you, so just in case I don’t love them, I’m packing a few pair of my fave *black* boy shorts. These black boyshorts are also super comfy and will be perfect for after baby too. I love wearing boyshorts to bed just to sleep in. 🙂
Seamless Sleep Bra: I’m super hot-natured so I plan on taking a comfy sports/lounge bra with me in case that’s what I want to wear during L&D!
Slippers: I love these from UGG because they’re SO warm and comfy. They’re the moccasin style, so they stay on your feet!
Fuzzy Socks with Grippers: The hospital socks look so gross (lol), so I am packing a couple pairs of my own just in case!
Blanket: I love all things soft, and sometimes hospitals can be really chilly so packing this blanket from The Little Giraffe was a must! I have the Luxe Snow Leopard Print in the smaller size, and the print is SO gorgeous! Use code ‘MORG20’ to save 20% off everything on The Little Giraffe site. 🙂
Going Home Outfit: I plan on wearing these leggings (my fave maternity leggings!) or these active maternity leggings (my fave active maternity leggings) and an oversized comfy sweater. 🙂 This grey sweater tunic is one of my favorite (SO SOFT!!!) and I love this pink sweater too! 🙂 I will be wearing these Sperry sneakers as they will be so easy to slide on and off! 🙂
Bellefit Girdle: I plan on wearing this as soon as possible after baby. I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this girdles! Y’all can get $20 off any Bellefit girdle with code ‘MORGAN20’ 🙂
Makeup Remover Wipes: These from Philosophy are my FAVE! I love The Philosophy Purity face wash, and these are a convenient take on that. Their perfect for travel in general, and especially the hospital! 🙂 I hate sleeping in makeup, and these will be so handy just to refresh my face during our stay.
Claraderm Spray: For pre delivery prep + post-delivery recovery I’ve heard this is incredible.
Essential Oils + Diffuser: I LOVE the lavender + stress away. I’ll be diffusing them in the L&D room and after she’s here too in the regular room. I’ve been using these two every night since I got them. I’m also planning on applying lavender & frankincense topically throughout labor.
Rose Ointment: For breastfeeding – I’ve heard this is incredible. It smells heavenly & I’ve been using it on my chapped lips and love it!!
Dry Shampoo: The Batiste in the original fragrance is my all-time fave dry shampoo. I’ve tried them all and always come back to this one. I love the XL can from Ulta because it lasts longer!
Hair brush + Comb (for my bun!):
Lip Balm: love this serum!
Coconut Oil: For breastfeeding – I’ve heard it’s amazing! I found this one in a tube on Amazon, which is so convenient. It’s 100% pure, cold-pressed, organic coconut oil (which are 3 *musts* since it will be going directly on my skin + the baby).
Mama Frida: For washing yourself comfortable after baby
Travel Skincare (face wash, moisturizer)
Extra Ponytail holders: these ones are so cute and comfy! My fave!
Flip Flops for Hospital Shower (ew): These are super inexpensive and the light blush color is too cute. 🙂
Protein Bars: These PowerCrunch Bars in the Peanut Butter Fudge flavor are my FAVE! They’re really good cold too.
Pre-made Protein Shakes: These from Orgain are my absolute favorite. I drank these daily when I first found out I was pregnant, because I always felt a little nauseous in the morning. These protein shakes helped me get in my protein and calories early on in my pregnancy, and never make me feel nauseous. I’m sure I’ll be feeling a little nauseous before + after baby, so these are the perfect snack for me to take.
Prenantal Vitamins: Still going to take these after she’s born!
Yeti Cooler: This was actually recommended when we went on our hospital to keep any food + drinks cold for dad (but let’s be honest, I’m going to make him sneak me snacks too haha).
Birthing Ball: I’m just taking my exercise ball with us as I’ve heard it’s super helpful during L&D. It’s so big and bulky, so I’m hoping we don’t accidentally leave this at home haha.
Breast Pump: So the lactation nurses can help me figure it out.
Camera + Camera Charger
Wallet: ID + Insurance Card
Baby Book (still need to pick this out!)
Car Seat: We have the Nuna PIPA Lite in Grey and love how light-weight it is!
