When my water broke six weeks before my due date, I had absolutely nothing packed for the hospital, and depending on my mom to gather and deliver the many things I needed for my stay proved to be a little less than satisfying.
Sure, she tried, and I was more worried about my baby than what kind of socks I had on, but it would’ve been nice to have had my bag already packed … which is why I think pre-packed hospital bags are a really great idea. You simply order it, and it’s ready to go whenever you are!
I recently checked out a sample from Babytime Bags, and they do a great job packing you up for one of the most important days of your life. They have three different bag options, and as with everything, the more you pay the more you get. The basic bag includes must-have options like organic lip balm, Lansinoh cream, flip-flops, toothbrush and toothpaste and a laundry bag, and the more expensive bags expand to include items like a hand massager, thank you notes, a luxury gown and more. For a list of what’s included in the different options, click here.
The bags start at $125 and go all the way up to $350, and you can also add other items on to customize your tote. The bags themselves are cute quilted totes or duffels, depending on the version you purchase, and the buyer has a few different print options from basic black to paisley. These bags are a great idea, and they also make a great shower gift (although for the price, you’d have to really like the mom-to-be!).
