essential chic- mom needs inside your hospital bag

Why we can't tell you everything you may need, here are a few essentials we just can't let you leave off your list when packing the hospital bag - for both you and babe - minus registration papers, insurance card and all that boring stuff.

For the chic-momma we suggest packing at least 2 to 3 dear johnnies hospital gowns (we love the fashion- forward ava print!) to make you feel comfortable, stylish and beautiful – hey, ya gotta look good in those first pics right?! You will feel totally safe and secure in the feel better hospital gown. Throw on a headband (we love this one) and make sure you have a hair tie to complete the chic momma hospital look – at least you will look glam through the drama & pain. During labor make sure you have your EOS Lip Balm for those chapped lips. It will add a little labor & delivery glow and keep your lips feeling healthy, and it’s 100% natural!

Make sure you also pack a bathrobe, slippers and socks for that ick of a hospital floor along with a brush, comb, toothbrush, toothpaste and shampoo, if you’re lucky enough to grab a shower. Also, don’t forget loungewear for the trip home and a nursing bra that is one size large than your normal size.

Moving on to the reason we are at the hospital – the babe. For those expecting a girl, here is the perfect hospital hat! A boy? We love this hat from Etsy!

Make sure to pack the perfect first blankie (celeb fave!) - Little Giraffe Spotted Luxe Blanket, along with Trumpette Socks, and his/her very first lovey from Bundled – and don’t forget the newborn sized “first day home” statement outfit.

Pack it all up in your Timi & Leslie Le Petit Voyage Overnight bag. It has all the great features of a well organized diaper bag with a chic designer hand bag appearance. Both you and babe will look stylish going to and from the hospital. Even better, they are on sale now here.
