I’m feeling super unorganised second time around. Being my second pregnancy, I’ve realised time just goes so much faster. Running after a toddler consumes most of my time and I have definitely become a lot more relaxed with my approach to everything. The nursery hasn’t even been started which is soooo unlike me ahaha but I figured I’d start prepping my hospital bag so I feel a little more in control.
My check list below is based on a two nights stay (you may need to include more if you are staying longer).
If there’s any other useful tips or suggestions to include please leave a comment below to help other fellow mamas!!!
- Use a small carry zip up case for both you and bub (Easier to find things)
- Pack each of baby’s outfit with a nappy and bind together with an elastic band (or place into sandwich bags). Makes it easier for dad / midwife to get out things you’re wanting
- Pack a separate bag for the birth. That way you have everything you need without searching through lots of things. This will help to create a more calming birth experience without the additional stress
- Don’t over pack. It’s hard because you don’t really know what you will use. But in my experience you live in the same clothes (unless they need washing due to body fluid leakage)
