” We are transformed into our children, and feel more keenly for them than for ourselves” – Marie De Sevigne
Hi Everyone! So I finally finished Genesis Diaper Bag for the hospital and wanted to post the contents below for your viewing pleasure. Thank you to all the mamas that helped me narrow some things down. Just an FYI I am delivering at a “baby friendly” hospital and they provide seriously almost everything that I will need for the baby. We are not doing any pacifiers so you wont see those in the bag and my hospital supports breastfeeding first so they have a pump on site that I can use in case I need (we have our own at home that I didn’t want to haul).
Everything laid out!
Coach Diaper bag comes with a changing pad. Thank you all for voting and choosing the bag. I love that it isn’t cloth on the outside which makes for easy wipe downs. It has a lot pockets too which I like. The things I don’t like are: its a bit slender making it hard to pack a lot of things in it and it is white…and you know I can’t get the Coach bag dirty LOL. But I LOVE that its stylish, I would carry this bag as a purse if it was a little smaller so it meets both Genesis and Mommy’s needs.
The Boppy (a gift from Byron’s coworker) to aid with breastfeeding. My labor and delivery teacher said she likes “My breastfriend” better but I have heard the boppy is better in the hospital since it doesn’t wrap all the way around you.
Blanket to cover the carseat (thank you Janeth), 2 swaddle blankets, 1 receiving blanket (that I will most likely use for a burp cloth. The boppy also has a burp cloth attached that I can use), and one sleep swaddler.
Clothing: my mother is buying her take home outfit so I brought just a few things. Adorable baby shirt and pink pants to take her matching picture with dad, 1 NB and 1 0-3 month sleeper, 1 0-3 month outfit. I also packed two pairs of socks, 2 pairs of mittens, and 2 hats (pictured in the next image).
The bear hat and mittens are for hospital pictures (Thank you Heather!), a travel pack of sensitive wipes just in case I don’t like the Babyganic ones, 2 newborn diapers and 2 size 1 diapers (all these articles except the clothing came in samples that I received either while registering or in the mail so it was perfect to not have to open my supplies at home). The diapers are really for the drive home because the hospital provides all this already.
Babyganics wipes (inside the pampers wipe case), Babyganics bathwash (I am hoping the hospital lets us use our own bath wash for her first bath), hand sanitizer (for diaper changes and everyone handling the baby), the two small containers have coconut oil (which I will use for rashes and diapers) and babyganics lotion, lastly the mesh bag has a brush, comb, nail clipper, and nose aspirator (I am pretty sure the hospital will provide these but wanted them packed just in case).
Not pictured: I am almost done crocheting the blanket I want her to take a picture with in the hospital.
Let us know if we are missing anything!
Always with love,
