Hospital bag Essentials

Hospital bag Essentials for you and baby. Is just a review of what I have packed so far, I am still awaiting the arrival of our son and I have finally finished packing our hospital bags. All that is left now is waiting…

If You’re a first-time mom like I am, you probably have a bit of an idea or no clue on what to buy and what to pack for baby and yourself when the big day arrives. You want the experience to be as comfortable as it can be since hospitals don’t cater all too much for personal needs. To have a few handy essentials by hand will make you feel at ease. This is what I have packed in our hospitals bags so far… let me know if I am missing anything.
