Hospital Bag Checklist
Packing your Hospital Bag - one of the most exciting, scary (and lets face it unqualified!!) tasks of your pregnancy! Hopefully by now you are feeling rested, nested and super Zen from all the Hypnobirthing… But what to pack??? Collectively team T+M have had quite a few babies, so we got our heads together and created this downloadable checklist, listing all the essentials and some suggestions for you, Baby and your partner.
Our Phoenix Holdall makes the perfect hospital bag (remember you can also use this as your changing bag once the baby arrives - it can attach onto your pram using our stroller clips) whilst our 5 piece T+M Packing Cube Set is ideal for compartmentalising all yours and your babies gear - i.e. one cube for towels, one for babies clothes, the mesh clutch for baby changing essential etc… !
Lastly - we know your partner wants to rock cool parent vibes from day dot, so make sure they are sorted with a Black Elwood backpack. We LOVE being tagged in the classic ‘Leaving the hospital’ pic of Dad or Mum carrying the baby out in the car seat, wearing their Elwood Backpack - it melts our hearts - please tag us in yours!!! #DADSLOVETIBA #MUMSLOVETIBA #WELOVETIBA🖤
