For anyone who has followed my Blog throughout my pregnancy, you may recall my monthly bumpdates. Around month 8 of my pregnancy, my biggest To-Do was packing my hospital bags. As a first time mom, I wanted to be fully prepared for my stay on the Maternity Ward! I took advice from a few Bloggers who had some great recommendations on things to pack and I of course printed the all inclusive Hospital Bag Checklist from The Bump! Perhaps one of the best pieces of advice I got before heading in to deliver my baby however came from my Mom. My mom has delivered 7 babies, so I took her advice without question! She warned me that this was by no means going to be a glamorous experience, but she made me promise to take something to the hospital that would make me feel a little less like the mess I was about to be ;) Whether it be a robe, a cute pair of pj's, just a little something special for me!
Now I know it may sound silly to be concerned with what you look like, after all you're going to be giving birth! But let me tell you, when you are in labor and then staying on the Mother Baby floor, you have an audience for EVERYTHING! That's right ladies! If you have not taken this road before, get ready, because your delivery room may be just like mine and include a doctor, a couple of student doctors, a team of about 6 nurses standing by and whoever else happens to walk through the door. Truly, that room just might be packed. And after delivery when all your visitors come in and the pictures start snapping, you will not want to be in that puke stained gown they toss at you upon arrival. Not to mention, hospital gowns aren't that comfy. I cannot tell you how thankful I was to have a little somethin' on hand that made me feel a little more presentable during my stay!
I came across this line of products by Baby Be Mine Maternity and let me tell you, they sell it all! From delivery gowns to matching Mommy & Me newborn attire...their entire line is created to make the mama look and feel the best she possibly can. Not only is their clothing cute, but it is all about the comfort too! Their gowns and lounge wear are easy to wear for breastfeeding moms as well, so you can even plan to wear these outfits after you head home! I purchased the Nicole Print Maternity Nightgown along with the matching Baby Receiving Gown & Hat & I love being able to match my sweet boy!
