Packing a hospital bag can be a lot of work! You want to be sure to pack the essentials, but you don't want to overpack because you're only there a couple of days + in bed for most of that time. We wanted to share some of our favorite items to pack in your hospital bag. These items are from a few of our favorite shops, too! Of course you are still going to need to pack your birth plan, camera, nursing bras, and a few other must-haves. But these are some other items that you are DEFINITELY going to want!
As a BONUS, we have teamed up with these shops to give away these hospital bag goodies! Head to our Instagram to enter.
