Hospital Bag Essentials – For Parents

Last week I wrote a blog post on hospital bag essential for baby and after receiving such great feedback I decided to write a quick post on what I’ll be packing for both my husband and I in our Fawn Design Weekender bag and a few things that won’t necessary fit into a bag but we’ll be taking with us to the hospital 😉 OH and ps. I’ll be including the BEST tip ever at the end of the list that I received from a sweet follower of mine on Instagram. Stay tuned XO

Wallet + Hospital Paperwork
Always Discreet Underwear
Kindred Bravely Nursing Bra + PJ Set [that’s nursing friendly]
Phone + Charger

Toothbrush + Toothpaste
Travel Size Shampoo + Conditioner + Body Wash + Deodorant + Hair Brush

Have your husband pack your hospital bag so that during contractions when you ask him to grab something he will know exactly where everything is and he can avoid saying “Ok sorry I know you’re in mid contraction but I can’t find your lip balm” LOL
