My friend, Claire, is 38 weeks pregnant. I was going to have lunch with her and thought, "this would be the perfect time to test out a Hospital Survival Kit." I got the idea and free printables from Jen at My Own Road.
Here's what I decided to put in the bag:
I don't like when little products are floating around in a large bag, so I separated the items in groups and wrapped individually in plastic gift bags. I then put sticker notes on each set of items...
I wasn't allowed to eat in the delivery room. So, after Owen arrived, I was starving!
>>Granola bars and candy | "To satisfy your cravings after baby arrives"
Before I could take a shower, I remember feeling so gross..just wanting to wash my face and pop a breath mint
>>Face cleansing wipes, tissues, lip balm, breath mints, and lotion | "To keep you feeling fresh, clean, and presentable"
While in the hospital, people dropped off gifts. I also wanted nurses names/addresses to send thank you notes for taking such good care of us!
>>Journal | "To record gifts received in hospital, nurses names, etc ."
There was a lot...a LOT of waiting...
>>Magazine | "To help pass the time"
My hair was short, so I had it pinned back. But, if my hair is long, I'd want a way to keep it out of my face/off of my neck
>>Ponytail holders and headbands | "To keep your hair out of your face"
The final product! Cute, huh?
