Hospital Bag Essentials

When I actually wrote this list out, it looks like a lot more than I thought. Having a cesarean your stay is a little longer than a vaginal delivery. By the fourth day it doesn't matter how much I bring with me I am ready to go home with my baby! This blog post is a simple list to help any mommas who might need a little direction. If it's your second time around, maybe some new ideas to make you feel a little more comfy. Since my first pregnancy this list has changed, just like new baby products!

Next to each thing will be a small commentary or if it's in my amazon shop www.amazon.com/shop/hrtsdesire

(under pregnancy must haves)
