Baby #5 Hospital Bag

Excited to have crossed “Pack the Hospital Bag” off the list!
With this being our fifth baby, I’ve figured out the items I have ended up
wanting to make sure I have and the ones I don’t really end up needing.
The only thing not mentioned…. is nipple cream and nipple shields.
First time mamas pack those!
Here’s a few things I should link that were mentioned/shown in the video.
1. My tote bag is from my etsy shop – “Yes, They are all mine!”
2. The Maternity leggings are from BLANQI.com
I wear those for a while then change out to the postpartum ones. LOVE love.
3.  The nursing tanks from Target – Gilligan O’Malley

I tried to go into detail about each item in the video.
Just comment if you have any questions!

Not only do I pack my hospital bag…
but I also have a bag of “presents from baby.”
We leave that in the car and Ben goes out to grab it before the big siblings arrive!
I like to have the presents be something with pieces or an activity so that it can be a good
distraction in case anyone is missing mom and dad.
They always are excited to open it in the hospital room!
I also pack a bin with some handy things in it for whoever, ideally my mom, watches
the kids while baby is being born or right after!
I pack outfits for the hospital so that they don’t have to worry about what to put on them.
And I like having cute outfits/photo planned for that first
moment they meet their new baby brother or sister. Neutrals and comfy.
I also throw in that bin some snacks, and a little ziplock bag of presents (blind bags) for each kid.
These are marked open when you want/need.
Just in case someone is missing mama and daddy…
it can lighten the mood and distract them! My kids love blind bags.

I pack the basics but also some extra more special/fun items like the gifts for the nurses!
I want them to know how much we appreciate them and also they
are great for hospital room visitors too. A nice surprise!IMG_3388

I hope this was a helpful post.
Good luck to those of you who are packing your own hospital bags!
