What I Have Packed in My Hospital Bag

So clearly, as a mom of 2, I’ve done the birth thing a couple of times now. Taking a 4 year break from having babies kind of faded my memory of everything you need to do this birthing thing, so I did some “Pinteresting” and surfed the web. I honestly felt like all those “my hospital bag” lists were so excessive. I…

    Hair Ties!!! So Much Yes! I love the G&O nursing tanks too. I wear them pretty much every day until my babies are weaned. And you’re going to be ridiculously fabulous walking the hospital halls in that gorgeous robe!ReplyCancel

    • Kate LaraineFebruary 23, 2017 - 6:28 pm

      My labor’s are usually CRAZY fast, so I won’t be bringing anything in particular for that, but if they were longer I might suggest snacks for hubby and a gown or robe you want to labor/birth in 🙂ReplyCancel

    A great list and a 100x yes to the peri bottle and hospital undies. One thing I always loved taking home was the giant water jug they give you. Lol After four kids for me you definitely hit all he important stuff. ReplyCancel

I am very passionate about my life as a mother, and I just want to portray the beauty of motherhood through my words and photos here on my blog. So pour yourself a hot cup of coffee or a big glass of wine, snuggle up under a big cozy blanket and stay awhile.

If you are ever interested in a specific topic that you would like to be seen discussed here, I would love to hear about it. Feel free to message me at any time.

I am also now booking commercial photography and local portrait sessions for the year of 2018.
