Hospital Must Haves

I thought I'd share with you what's in my suitcase packed and ready for the hospital.
I know each woman is different on what she prefers to wear in the hospital.
I do love a good hospital gown but I also like to put on somewhat normal comfy clothes.
My rules...everything must be soft and loose.
Because heaven knows the last thing I want on my body is something tight and restrictive.

Here's what I've got for this hospital trip:

-Black Sweatpants/Yoga Pants: The looser and softer the better.
I always stock up on several pairs of these.

-Soft Cardigans: I have a few cardigans packed...nothing fancy. One is a jersey material and the other is a soft knit.  Sometimes hospital rooms can be a bit chilly and I love having something to easily slip on.

-V Neck Tshirts: There's something comforting about a soft v-neck t shirt! Just like the pants...the looser and softer the better.

-Comfy Socks: I always like to buy myself a new pack of socks for the hospital.  Something about putting on a new pair of socks always makes me feel like a new woman!

-Slippers: Whenever I walk around my hospital room I always like to have a pair
of slippers to easily step into. It helps to keep the bottom of
my socks clean on my trips to and from the bathroom.

-Faux Diamond Studs: Just a little bling to make me feel somewhat put together;)

Hospital Pack List

I also like to splurge on a fun new shampoo, conditioner and body wash.
That first shower after you've given birth always feels like heaven.
And new bath products make that little slice of heaven that much better!
 I always bring my own bath towels too.
The little comforts of home can make the hospital not seem so sterile and cold :)

And my last hospital must have is that I bring my own pillow as well as a fresh pillow case for every night.
Nothing better!!! :)
