Since baby Olivia is days away, I thought I would share what I packed in her diaper bag for our stay at the hospital. When it comes to baby products, getting the essentials is key. Plus, as time goes on, there are always options to buy more items. Kids do grow up fast though, so try not to go overboard! I know that during our stay the hospital typically provides most baby basics but I wanted to pack a few extra little things to make my baby feel more comfortable. I also like having a few options in mind. Plus a cute outfit and headband will make the photos we take in the hospital that much cuter! I’m also prepared with some Kids Learning Songs so I can sing some lullaby’s and sweet melodies if I need to soothe her for any reason.
Going Home Outfit -I went with one-piece with eyelet onesie, some adorable newborn shoes and a cute headband.
Swaddling Blankets– I’m planning to use these to wrap her up, take some adorable newborn photos, and as a breastfeeding cover.
Hats -I have soft ones to keep her nice and warm.
Mittens -I likely won’t be able to trim her nails, so we’ll use mittens to hopefully prevent scratches.
Headbands -I packed a handful of these, okay I’m bringing 4; don’t judge me – they’re tiny and take up no space!
Basic onesies/pants or sleepers – I probably won’t use these, but I want the option in case the going-home outfit I have planned doesn’t work out or something.
Pacifiers– I’m not planning to immediately use a pacifier, but if I really end up needing one I got them just in case.
Burp Clothes– My mom used regular cloth diapers for myself & my siblings as burp clothes to burp the baby so I decided to do the same thing, she told me they are much easier to clean and I can bleach them since they tend to spit up on them.
Baby Grooming Kit– I wanted to bring this just in case I need to comb her hair or need any other grooming essentials.
Diaper Bag – I love this diaper bag because its so spacious and the print is so adorable.
