I am going to show you some outfit ideas that I am packing in my hospital bag and why I am packing them.

pregnancy robe
This white robe is perfect to wear over sleep dresses because they cover and the silk is so comfy for you and the baby.
pregnancy clothes
I love pj’s that are button down because they make it super easy to breastfeed and you can stay warm.
postpartum clothes
Make sure you size up because you will still have a little baby bump postpartum.
gold slippers
These gold slippers are perfect for walking around at the hospital
Pack plenty of maternity bras and underwear. These underwear are perfect if you have a c-section scar.

Shop bras here

Night gowns are my favorite because they are so comfortable and are also easy for breastfeeding.
Look how pretty this robe looks on top of the night gown.
Don’t forget fuzzy socks. These fuzzy socks you can wear at the hospital or during delivery.
maternity top.
This top is for going home. Its so flattering around the belly and it breast feeding accessible.

I love how I can put all my bathroom essentials in the front pockets so they are easy accessible and I don’t have to worry about them spilling on my clothes.
Don’t forget your hairbrush, hair ties, and hand bands. I will more then likely have a braid the entire time.

These are my makeup essentials that I cannot live without. Notice I didn’t pack my contour pallate or 30 brushes. This is the only makeup I will feel like putting on in the hospital if any.
I love how this bag has a spot for your cards and don’t forget to pack your insurance card in here too.

The hospital gives you postpartum pads but they are not too great. I brought a few of my own for the ride home. Make sure you pack tucks pads too.
Don’t forget to pack prenatal vitamins especially if you plan on breast feeding.

Don’t forget a head band to keep your hair out of your face during labor
I use coconut oil as a lotion, lip balm, and most importantly to remove all my makeup. My biggest tip is to remove all your makeup before you go into labor. You will not be taking any pictures while in labor and you will only take them after. I didn’t let anyone take a picture of me until I put my makeup on and I am going to have a clean face this time.
Makeup wipes are also great to have in your hospital bag in case you are too tired to wash your face.

Extras

fuzzy blanket for the hospital
So the last time I was in labor I packed a big fuzzy blanket. I am so glad I did this because it is awesome to have for you and the baby. It’s so soft and comfortable it makes you feel more at home.
