Let’s be honest, I wasn’t about to brave the cold this time for Fashion Friday – it’s 14 degrees out and the wind is unbearable. Plus I’m sure I don’t look so hot in my maternity sweatshirt and comfy pants 🙂 So this time I’m sharing a couple things I bought for my upcoming hospital stay! One thing my sister said was important to her when she had her baby was to have a new outfit to change into after having the baby – just to feel a little more pretty about yourself. I LOVE the store Aerie for lounge wear so that’s where I got all of this.
1) Floral Sports Bra In case I want to hop in the tub at some point.
2) Free & Easy Tee in Pink Blush Size large 🙂
3) Free & Easy Tee in Robin Blue
4) Gray Lounge Pants The drawstring is key!
5) Cozy slippers Christmas gift from my sister.
Other things I have packed so far is chapstick, my toiletries, a heating pad, and my camera. I still need to get a cute baby book to put his footprints in and a long comfy robe. Anyone seen any pretty ones lately? I’m having a hard time finding one!
Thanks for posting this! I love reading baby-related posts–they make me feel more prepared. haha. Target has this cute sweater-like robe. It’s not floor-length, but it’s cute. : )
at the hospital where we had owen, they gave us a piece of paper with his foot prints stamped on it so we didn’t have to worry about it – it was wonderful!
i’d add lotion and your favorite DVD (something you don’t have to concentrate on) to the list – hospitals can be so dry, and when i was awake in the middle of the night staring at my new little one, having something on in the background was wonderful for me!
This first time mommy outfit looks like heaven! I went in to the hospital on Halloween night. Thinking back I really should have found a costume to wear. Maybe next time 😉
I would also recommend your favorite hard candies (jolly ranchers etc)and mints. There comes a point in your labor that they dont let you eat anything but you can suck on hard candies and with all that breathing your hubby will appreciate you poppin a mint 🙂 and you will enjoy a little fresh taste.
ooo thanks for the tips girls!!
We weren’t able to do it because we hadn’t even packed a bag yet when everything happened BUT I know some people who packed a pretty pillowcase. I know it sounds weird, but it makes a nice backdrop for all the pictures that you take when the wee one is born! Plus it makes you feel home-y.
I love your outfit. I found I felt so much better about myself, when I actually cared what I looked like in the hospital. I did put makeup on. I realize that it depends on the person, but I felt so much better about myself and I don’t cringe when I look back at pictures. My only suggestion would be black pants…for obvious reasons.
If you plan on nursing you should definitely bring a cotton nursing bra and a nightgown with buttons down the front for easy access 😉
