Hospital Bag MUST Haves

May 30, 2016

C-Section it is!  Super nervous about the surgery, to her arrival and my recovery with this new tiny baby girl.  We are going earlier than expected so here is whats in my hospital bag at only 35 weeks.  I’ve done extended research and asked just about every women I know who’s had a Caesarean what their must haves were.  More suggestions welcomed.

First, and most important is to have your carseat properly installed in your car for baby’s ride home.  I decided to go with the UppaBaby Cruz stroller.  It’s light, very safe and simply colored.  I love the bassinet option for her to take naps in.


I was told the Belly Bandit is a savior.  It holds everything together and for a C relieves some pain while keeping the stomach tight.  I got the organic pink bandit and the black shield for under neither to hold any creams that are applied as well.  The white zip is to hold my  Medela Breast Pump in place while breastfeeding.  The Honest nipple balm.. we’ll see once that happens!


All about having handy products.  Scar cream, Vitamins, wavy hair mist for easy after shower do, Breast pads for leaking, oil for dryness, etc.  Am I missing anything?


Foxy!  I told my husband I bought a sexy nightgown..not really.  All cotton everything.  Target underwear and nursing bras, eye mask, Nap Socks and slippers.

For baby Si!!  (her nickname) I got the boppy pillow cover on Etsy by a shop called KB Cute Designs.  Swaddles are Aden and Anais where I also got my stroller covers and other super soft goodies.

Newborn side snap t-shirts and Mam Pacifiers will hopefully make my life a little easier.  Lastly, a head crown for the princess.
