Following my post on What's in my baby's hospital bag i thought it was only right for the next one to be What's in MY hospital bag... It's not as cute and filled with a lot more of those 'less than glamorous' products but i hope it helps you decide what to bring if you too are packing your hospital bag.
I'm a lot more organized second time round and i do think its down to all the helpful blog posts and you tube videos. With my first pregnancy i packed the basics and i mean the basics, I must say i have packed a few bits that some may think are vain or superficial (straightners/makeup) but im packing these with the intent that they will make me feel and look more human! I want to be able to look back at the pictures this time round and not cringe! So, each to their own.. why not do all you can to make yourself feel better, after-all you've just given birth and thats possibly the hardest thing to do!
I've packed 3.. ok 4 nighties/nightshirts to be on the safe side - Maternity Pads - Mini Straighteners (i'm determined to not have an afro this time round) - Hair Brush/Tangle Teezer - Plastic Bags (again, for any dirty clothes) - Hospital Notes - Slippers - Going Home Clothes (Maternity leggings, vest top, shirt & Converse) - Only a hundred pairs of underwear(!) - Socks - Toiletries & Cosmetics (below) - Oh and on top of all of this i somehow need to squish a towel in there... hmmm wish me luck!
Benefit 'its potent' Eye Cream - Real Techniques Mini Brush Trio - Origins Vitazing - ELF blush 'Shy' - Benefit High Beam Highlighter - Le Volume De Chanel Mascara - Benefit Fake-Up Concealer - Nars Oil Makeup Remover - Carmex Original Lip Balm - Benefit BrowZing - Cotton Wool Pads - Hair Bobbles - Hair Grips
Toothbrush - Toothpaste - Wash Cloth - Boots Anitbacterial Wipes - Feminine Products (Femfresh Wash, Wipes and lots of sanitary pads!) - Body Wash - Dove Deodorant - Palmers Cocoa Butter - Garnier Micellar Water (dispensed) - Soap & Glory Hand Food - Soap & Glory Hand Maid - Batiste Dry Shampoo 'Blush' Hope this post was helpful/interesting!
