Hello everyone Kai has made his arrival a little earlier than expected. I gave birth at 37 weeks due to a condition called Cholestasis of Pregnancy. You can read more about with the link provided but in short terms I had sever itching all over my body and affected the bile in my body. I had absolutely no idea this was even possible. Thanks to one of the nurses who noticed that I was itching and took me back to my OB to get blood tested and thats how we found out for sure. So the suggestion was to deliver at 37 weeks because it could have affected Kai if I went further on. So March 1, 2018 at 2:16 PM Kai made his arrival. Sam was able to go see him while they checked him and wrapped him up. The brought him to me so I could see him and give him a kiss before he had to be taken to the NICU. I will write an update on the blog when I get a chance. I did make a Facebook page just for Kai’s Journey & you can follow along HERE. You can see my past blog post to read more about Kai and how we started this journey.
This post is all about what I packed in my hospital bag. Since Kai would be going to the NICU I packed minimal things for him. He would not be needing any outfits but we could bring hats, socks, mittens, and receiving blankets. Now that Kai is 6 weeks old they said I can bring in clothing since they have been compressing his Omphalocele. So I’ll just make a list and link everything the best I can. Some products may not be the exact same but I will try my best.
- Nursing Bra/Sports Bra
- Non slip socks
- Comfortable soft pants
- Nursing pads
- Maxi pads
- Phone charger
You can find all these items linked HERE.
- Receiving blankets
- Hand mittens
- Baby bath products
You can find these items linked HERE.
The bath products are linked HERE through my personal website as a consultant with Beautycounter. These are the products we brought to the hospital with us for Kai. We knew he would have an extended stay and be in the NICU. These are products that we use as a family and have chosen to use them for Kai. Beautycounter is a company that strives to bring safer products into the homes of families!
Altogether I packed what I needed and maybe a bit more but just to make sure I didn’t forget anything. This gorgeous bag also helped me tremendously. It is a Be prepared from Ju-Ju-Be. It was more then enough space to carry everything I needed. I hope that this helps you all pack for your hospital stay. Let me know what you took or will take that I didn’t!
