As first time or even veteran moms, one of the biggest questions on our minds is: What should I include in my hospital bag? We don't want to overpack, yet we are desperately afraid of forgetting that one essential item! We've compiled a fantastic list of the best essentials for mom and baby to include in your hospital bag. See some our favorites recommendations below:
Fawn Diaper Bag. Every parenting journey begins with choosing the perfect bag to pack your little one's essentials, and we are in love with Fawn Design. Their bags are stylish, functional, and easy to clean, making them our clear winner.
The Ollie World Swaddle. The Ollie Swaddle is known as the smarter swaddle because of its patented, moisture wicking fabric that helps keep baby comfortable and dry while assisting in reducing the risk of overheating. It also opens at the bottom for easy diaper changes and is made to be safely placed below the shoulders to prevent any loose fabric around the face and to decrease strain on baby's shoulder joints.
Dockatot Deluxe. This beautiful, safe nest is a portable space for baby to lounge, play, and rest from day one. It also serves as a terrific spot for tummy time and diaper changes, truly serving as a must-have, multi-functional product for new moms. The Deluxe size is made especially for babies 0-8 months, or around 5-22 pounds.
Belly Bandit Bamboo Belly Wrap. This incredible wrap is soft and comfortable, yet strong! It helps to accelerate the healing process after birth. Not only does the Belly Bandit Bamboo Belly Wrap support your back, legs, and core muscles, but it also aids in the support of breastfeeding, can provide comfort after a c-section, and helps prevent abdominal separation known as diastasis recti.
Dwell + Slumber Caftan Dresses. One question on every new mama's mind is what will she wear home from the hospital, as well as what she can lounge in while she's healing during that critical postpartum period. Dwell + Slumber classic caftan dresses are flowy, nursing and bump friendly, and made with a buttery soft fabric that is truly transitional for all seasons.
Covered Goods Nursing & Carseat Cover. Every new mama deserves a Covered Goods! They are multi-use, functioning as a nursing cover, carseat cover, stylish infinity scarf, and even a grocery cart cover. There are so many fun patterns to choose from, speaking to all styles!
Marley's Monsters Nursing Pads. These adorable and eco-friendly nursing pads are made with four layers of protection including flannel, cotton terry-cloth, and anti-pill fleece. They give the perfect amount of absorbency without creating excess bulk, and they are even machine washable for convenience!
Parasol Diapers & Wipes: Parasol diapers and wipes are our must-have disposable diapers for baby! They are luxuriously soft, eco-conscious, and absorbent. They also come in adorable, modern prints and give superior performance without the bulk.
Wildbird Ring Sling: Babywearing has an array of benefits, such as encouraging healthy emotional and physical development, as well as promoting bonding and forming a strong attachment with your little one.
