MY HOSPITAL BAG FOR BABY 2



After feeling like I packed way too much stuff for the birth of my first child, I took a more minimalist approach to my hospital bag this time around. It's important to note that I have no problem using and wearing all the supplies provided by the hospital (gowns - birth is messy, no slip socks, pillows, baby shirts, diapers, blankets, etc.). There's so much to think about as you get closer to your due date - why not take advantage of what the hospital has to offer.
