Comfort is key and these are cozy, fluffy and not too tight (incase you need to wear sexy medical stocking too!) 1 Pair - Colours vary
You have probably noticed your feel swell during pregnancy so we include an open toe/heel version
Long gone are the days where the hospital give you a stash of these. Natracare Maternity pads have a soft, certified organic cotton cover. They are extra long, wide and comfortably padded to give confident and secure protection
Even if you don't breastfeed, your breasts are likely to leak colostrum after birth. We include a pair of washable bamboo pads.
Its easy to forget as you can't pack it until the last minute so we include a bamboo toothbrush and colgate toothpaste
We can't rate these highly enough, chosen because of their high quality and eco-friendliness, and because we believe you have definitely earned a little bit of luxury for that post birth shower!
HAIRBRUSH AND HAIRBAND
If you don't get bed hair giving birth you are doing much better than us! and if your hair is long enough to tie back you are probably going to want it out of your face. 1 hairband and wooden hairbrush provided
Because your lips will get dry especially if you are using gas and air. Vaseline isn't the most glamorous lip balm but it is very effective!
HAT, MITTENS AND BOOTIES
Baby needs extra layers when they are first born (it is nice and warm in a tummy!) so we provide these essentials. We have been asked to include first outfits too but we feel strongly that the first outfit is special and should be something you choose not us!
100% Cotton, which gets softer with each wash. We think these are essential - they can be used as bibs, burp cloths, swaddles, breast feeding cover, the list of uses is near endless.
There is a lot of choice when it comes to disposable nappies, we've chosen the gorgeously soft, biodegradable Bamaboo Nappies. Free from chlorine, alcohol, PVC, Latex, and Phthalates. We include a sealed trial pack of 6 nappies in our Classic Sets and a full pack of 50 nappies in our Large Sets.
BABY CLOTHES BAG
This started as a humble grip lock bag, when we saw a great tip to use sandwich bags to keep baby clothes together and easily accessible in your bag. Now our Baby's First Outfit Bag is cotton canvas, lined and closes with a cute heart zip. Use it first in your hospital bag to keep all of baby’s tiny clothes together, use it later as a keepsake bag for babies first outfit. It will comfortably contain 2 full baby outfits.
The hospital will probably provide them but we think it is nicer to have your own!
Wipes are our can't live without item. 100% Biodegradable and suitable for newborn skin
