So in all reality, I know to get Dylan from point A (my inners) to point B (the world), all I really need is my vag… but hey I’m a planner and want to make sure we have as many comforts as possible to make this birthing process a hit. One thing you dont have to bring, but we did, was one of those blank picture mats that you have people sign at weddings, etc. I also purchased the boppy pillow for my first son and ended up buy the brestfriend pillow. Maybe I am paranoid, but I would toss the mittens and use long sleeve onesies with the built in mittens. And depending on your recovery pain tolerance, I promise you, you won’t care that you are wearing granny panties and ice packs! Good idea on the long sleeve onesies with built in mittens – sounds like they would also be easier to stay on!
I did the make ahead pads and used the leftover spray in a little travel spray bottle and I can’t tell you how much faster I think I healed from the last babe downstairs. I am currently 36 weeks pregnant and we have our hospital bags packed too … good call on having a separate one for the labor room, and one for after!
I’ve been told that sugar free items are better to have on hand during labor as the sugary stuff makes you more thirsty. If you’re already in your 3rd trimester… you should have your bag packed already! However, you could be at a routine OB exam when the doctor decides to admit you for bedrest, or she sees danger signs that mean an immediate C-section is necessary. You just never know.
A tip for the thrifty: Ask your hospital what they provide for babies and mothers, and take those items off your list.


If you don’t already have a diaper bag selected, this is a good excuse to buy one you love. Fill the diaper bag with baby’s essentials, and then use an airline carry-on bag for Mom.
And yes, to all those that wanna go to that level… I think I’m probably over preparing physically since I couldn’t be more unprepared mentally. I’m crossing my fingers and toes for a natural delivery and short hospital stay, but I’m packing several nursing gowns just to be prepared. Your uterus will contract faster which means the bleeding (yuck again) shouldnt last too long. I used tucks with 1 & 2, and while I would recommend that, this was way better due to the natural aloe vera and witch hazel. I’m 3 weeks from my due date with my first little one and I love hearing about the experiences of other first time moms.
I had the same thought on not wanting to get my Boppy dirty, but then found these great slipcovers at Babies R Us. I’ve also packed a loose fitting outfit for the trip home and some granny panties to rock with those super sweet thunder pads. Might be good for home too so people know not to ring the door bell or knock if you are getting your baby boy to sleep. As a mommy of 3, and one one the way, I just wanted to tell you about the passionate homemaking blog. My bag went unopened during labor (though I mostly labored at home) and I ended up wearing hospital gowns the whole time after.

We’re going into this parenting thing so very blind, but I have all the confidence in the world that Jer and I are going to be rockstar parents. After you have a natural delivery, they put ice in those heavy duty pads and it is the best feeling ever. I considered bringing a boppy pillow but think I want to leave mine at home so it doesn’t get dirty. I originally purchased a boppy and after a visit to my local breastfeeding center, fell in love with the My Brestfriend.
I’ve heard Tucks pads and dermoplast are great for after delivery soreness and swelling and my birthing class instructor also gave us the idea of putting a little water in a newborn diaper and freezing it so you can use it as an ice pack on your perineum without having to use a big bulky ice pack. I had a scheduled c-section (stubborn, very breech baby) so I didn’t labor, but I think you have everything you need! The one thing that i wish I would have had for all three babies (instead of the last one) is the boppy lounger. As you read about babies sleeping on their back, it helps the babay just have some incline as they sleep.
