We celebrated Baby Jack at Natalie’s baby shower a few weeks ago.
I made Natalie a new mom comfort kit to take to the birthing center / hospital.
Snacks (granola bar, fruit strips), notepad and pen, nail polish, iTunes gift card, chapstick, Kleenex, breath mints, anti-stress lotion, mouthwash, face/hand wipes, hair ties. Update: Now that I use and love Young Living Essential oils I would add some lavender or Gentle Babies blend! Tender Tush would be a great addition too! What else would you add?
I looked for a cute clear make-up bag, but I couldn’t find one that I liked and then I remembered this bag from a Johnson’s Baby Gift Set that I had received for both kids It was already empty so I added the new mom kit things instead.
Remember this post? I looked back at my notes about what to pack for the hospital when I made this kit.
I made the label and attached it with a luggage tag.
FREE PRINTABLE- I made 3 options – pink, green and blue booties. Click to download each color in Google Docs. Let me know if you want another color! Feel free to personalize the booties with the baby’s name or initials!
