What’s in my hospital bag!?

We are so close to meeting our sweet little bundle of joy! Suitcase is packed and in the car ready for when he’s ready to get here with us.

I packed for all 3 of us in one large suitcase rather then packing a carry bag. Just like when you go to the airport… it’s much easier and more officiant to have a roll on suitcase in my book. All of mommy’s, babies and daddy’s essentials fit and even a few extras!

We are counting down the days we get to meet our sweet boy! So while I have this time (not too long now) I thought I’d share my list of items I’m taking to the hospital and maybe help some future mommies out.

My list of packed items consists of a lot of Pinterest lists that I transformed into one. Including some things my fellow mom friends suggested 👍🏼
