You can scour the internet for hours going through master lists of what you need to take in your hospital bag when you deliver. I feel like this can lead to a lot of anxiety and obsessing over not missing a single thing. The reality of it all? There’s really not many things that you need directly after delivery. A few basics will do and anything else won’t be the end of the world if you need to send hubby home to grab a few things. That’s why instead of offering you an overwhelming list of things, that aren’t completely necessary within the first 12 hours, I’m going to give you the things you’ll want immediately after having baby or that often get overlooked. The things that maybe your friends don’t want to burst your bubble with!
At the end of the day, nothing is irreplaceable so please don’t stress over packing a bag. Of course there are lots of other things I can add to the list but these are my top tips! Stay tuned for a blog post coming on how to create a “daddy diaper bag” with all kinds of fun things for the dad to be to keep him entertained at the hospital and to double as his diaper bag.
