Add A Little Luxury To Your Hospital Birth Bag

As you get into the final stages of pregnancy and start to think about all of the essentials you’ll need for your stay in hospital; why not upgrade some of the items on your pregnancy checklist to something a little more luxurious to make sure your stay is as comfortable as possible for both you and your new baby.

We’ve put together a list of 5 luxury items we think would be a welcome addition to any hospital stay bag, and that you can continue to enjoy long after you’re back home with your bundle of joy.

Overnight Bag 

The bag you use to pack all your items for your stay in hospital is just as important as the items you put in it. There are hundreds of stylish, good quality holdalls on the market to choose from but why not go for a bag that also doubles as a baby changing bag and can be used long after your baby is out of nappies.

Tiba & Marl have brought luxury and style together to make a range of changing bags you can be proud of. We really like the Raff Holdall - it's multi-functional and can continue to be used as regular bag long after your baby is out of nappies. 

Luxurious and Practical Sleepwear

A comfy but good quality pair of pyjamas or nightdress to snuggle into before and after childbirth is an easy and practical way of helping you feel ready for visitors. So, choose nightwear with a touch of premium quality; a touch of luxury is just what you'll need.

Mamamoosh stock a variety of maternity sleepwear in both pyjamas and nightdress/nightshirt styles and feature easy breast feeding access and hidden bust support – helping to keep you comfortable and stylish.

The Cutest Baby Sleep Suits

When deciding what to pack for your newborn, maximum comfort is essential, but let’s face it they'll need to be very cute too! All-in-ones are a popular choice to keep baby warm and snug soon after his/her arrival. Magnolia Baby design with luxury in mind, and are made with super soft 100% Pima cotton.

The Softest Blanket

Although hospitals tend to be very warm, newborn babies take quite some time to adjust to the temperature of the outside world and so you may want to pack a couple of blankets to ensure your prince or princess is kept warm.

Burberry have gorgeous blankets available from The Children’s Salon. The blanket will help to provide both warmth and comfort to your newborn throughout their first night in hospital and during their journey home and could become a much loved keepsake too.

Made from super soft Merino wool, this luxurious blanket is a perfect nursery accessory for your little one. Lightweight but super warm, this fine wool design is large enough for a crib or cot, helping to add another touch of luxury to your baby’s first few days.  

All Important Toiletries

Toiletries with an added hint of luxury can be an excellent way of making your stay a little more comfortable. Choosing products with added calming properties, and that also help to replenish and restore the skin and body, is important. Natalia's pampering set ticks all the boxes. With each product containing, natural, organic and nourishing ingredients it’s sure to provide a little zen, where possible, to life as a new mother.
