I also packed my items in clear bags so Carl could easily grab what mini bag I needed and hand it to me. This ended up being a game-changer!
What I bought and then THREW away (yes, germs…)
2. Slippers ($14)
3. Shower Shoes!
I highly recommend you asking the hospital during your tour what they provide for you. I was lucky and our hospital gave us unlimited supplies when it came to ice packs, pads, underwear and more. Below are the items I got at the hospital and ordered more for at home. I bought adult diapers but liked wearing high waisted underwear and pads better. Below is everything I needed at home for my vaginal recovery. But again, if your hospital doesn’t supply these, get them!
I also brought my bed pillow with me, two blankets: one for me and one for Carl and a towel! The ones the hospital provided weren’t soft at all. Also, a loofah when showering!
If you have any questions, feel free to leave them below! I’ll be sharing my birth story and about my recovery soon as well.
