Mothercare Hospital Bag
Advantages: Deceptively large
For some reason or another I didn't worry about having a hospital bag until I was around 8 months pregnant. I think because 9 months seems so far away you don't worry about a lot of things and then suddenly I was 8 months pregnant out of nowhere, sitting in the middle of the living room crying on the phone to my best friend because I had forgotten what was possibly one of the most important pieces of luggage I would ever carry!
Now I would like to say best friends are amazing and mine popped round the following afternoon with a Mothercare bag in her hand and gave it to me beaming. During her lunchbreak at work she had popped into Mothercare and purchased me a hospital bag which was full of things I would need for if I had to stay in hospital. The only difference between mine and the one in the picture is mine was pink. I don't know how much she spent on it but I knew she shouldn't have and she wouldn't let me pay her back either.
I was so pleased with my hospital bag. It was bright pink with little zips everywhere you could need them. It wasn't a massive bag in any terms, it was what Mothercare were calling a "compact bag" and I think it is made to be more compact to stop new mum's taking a million and one things they just won't need when in hospital. The bag was made of a high quality and didn't really look like a maternity bag. It looked like a funky little holdall which was what I wanted.
My best friend told me to open the bag up and inside was a variety of little products for that hospital stay. She said it was just in case I had forgotten anything. In the bag were the following items:
*100ml Mothercare Soothing Nipple Cream
*Mum to Be 30ml Perfect Delivery Perineal Gel
*Mothercare maternity towels
*Mothercare breast pads
*1 travel toothbrush and travel toothpaste
*6 newborn disposable nappies (which were originally Huggies but my best friend had taken them out and replaced them with Pampers because she knew that was what I wanted my daughter to wear)
*Cotton wool balls
*2 bodysuits (size 0-3mths)
*1 sleepsuit (size 0-3mths)
I was totally gobsmacked at how much stuff was in the bag and how much stuff actually fitted in the bag. This bag was truly the Mary Poppins bag of maternity bags!
I don't know how much my best friend paid for this bag but it was definately worth it. And the best thing was that because it didn't look like a maternity bag I could use it again and again which I did.
Highly recommended product!
