Chances are, you’ve spent the past several months dreaming of the day you finally get to meet the tiny human growing inside you. To prepare for your baby's arrival, you’ve already stocked up on baby clothes, set up the nursery, installed the infant car seat, and maybe even lined up some helpers to make the transition back home with a new baby smoother.

But did you forget one of the most important things on your checklist? That is to decide what to pack in your HOSPITAL BAG. Your due date is getting close, so now will be the best time to gather all the necessities you'll need during labor and after your baby is delivered. You don’t want to forget to pack any essentials, but there’s also no reason to over pack things.

Read on the list for the essentials to pack in your hospital bag:

  1. Bring along a belly band that can be used immediately after delivery.

A stretchable and breathable belly band that can be used for natural birth and C-section delivery can assist in uterus recovery and holds your abdominal muscles together.

  1. Don’t forget to bring a high-rise antibacterial panty that is silky soft and ultra-stretchy.

Mamaway’s panties are designed for pregnancy and post-natal wear (especially after a C-section to protect your wound), and the antibacterial material keeps you clean and odor free.

  1. Of course, and a crossover bra that you can sleep and nurse in.

Easily accessible pull-down design, plus the antibacterial and quick drying material, make Mamaway’s crossover bra the perfect bra for breastfeeding at night.

  1. Throw in some breathable and hypoallergenic breast pad that is gentle on your skin to allow your sore nipples a chance to heal.

Ever heard about the let-down reflex? Your breast milk might leak without warning, anywhere and anytime, even when your baby isn’t near you. A breast pad will be your new best friend to prevent that awkward leak when your friends and family come visit you in the hospital!

  1. Don’t skip on a nursing pajama that allows you to breastfeed whenever and wherever.

Pajama with unique nursing opening will allow you to nurse easily & discreetly. No need to look for a nursing room or put on fiddly nursing covers anymore.

  1.  And remember that a moon pillow will be your perfect snuggle companion during pregnancy and an invaluable aid to breastfeed your newborn after you delivered.

Mamaway’s moon pillow is antibacterial, anti-odor, breathable and quick dry. It can prevent De Quervain syndrome from holding your baby while breastfeeding, and it is safe and gentle for you and your baby’s skin.

  1.  Looking for a tool to bring your baby home? Baby sling keeps your hands-free and distributes the weight evenly on your back.

Do you know that skin-to-skin contact has dramatic positive effects on both mommies and babies? Baby Sling keeps your baby close to you and provides a womb-like effect for your baby.

From diapers to breast pads, to baby wipes and baby sling, pack everything in the bag and you’re good to go! Also, what’s better than a backpack that comes with a mini matching backpack that your little one can use when he grows up?
