Cupcake still has some gestating to do, but I was already talking to a sweet friend about what to pack in the bag that goes to the hospital with us when the she finally arrives. She had some great suggestions like honey sticks for a quick energy boost. I've already started collecting some holy cards and images I want to have with me. Another friend recommended an old blanket or quilt to make those hospital beds feel more cozy and it got me thinking to open up this thread to everyone so that you can share anything that you might have found especially comforting or helpful or necessary to bring along with you either for the delivery or after.
And all you amazing homebirth mommas, feel free to chime in with anything you might have made sure to have on hand at home that you found particularly comforting or helpful for before or after. I've already started drinking some raspberry leaf tea which I found very helpful after BigBoy was born.
P.S. Not that I am considering one but isn't that delivery gown in the picture a hoot?
P. P. S. I have a supply of washable ones but does anyone know if they sell disposable nursing pads that are NOT individually wrapped? Thanks!
