What’s in the Hospital Bag: Newborn Edition

Tuesday, May 15, 2018

So I cannot make a blog post about what’s in my new Ella Dane diaper backpack, without highlighting the fact that I’m about to be a mother of trés babés! The last time I had to think about a baby bag and newborn essentials was almost four years ago! 

The first time around I had a Coach Baby bag, and it was almost the size of a weekend bag. Since I took very good care of it, I was able to use it 3.5 years later for my son. 

But that bag is long gone, and I wanted something cuter, allowed me to truly be hands free (My old bag always had to be shifted from shoulder to shoulder for comfort and basically got in the way). 

With my style changing over the last 3.5 years, I wanted something that was easy multi-functional, practical and had a minimal and classic vibe. The faux leather, which makes it wipeable is a plus! 

Thanks to the right hash tag, and the final search, I came across Lorenda’s perfect diaper backpack, Ella Dane Designs.  
From one Mama to another, and my love for small business’, I had to support. Literally, I knew I had to have it as soon as I saw it! The reviews, were helpful, the bag looked (and once it made its way home to Mama) is roomy, and it has the leather-like look and style I was looking for! This bag comes with a strap to wear as a shoulder bag and an attachable zippered bottle holder (not pictured). 

Thanks to a couple of Pinterest post, here’s what I packed for baby boy in his diaper backpack. 

-2 hats
-2 mittens 
-3 socks 
-3 onesies 
-2 sleepers 

-1 burp cloth 
-1 going home outfit 
-1 receiving blanket 
-1 blanket 


The hospital has there own supply they encourage you to use, but I have my own preference. So these items and Baby toiletries (as far as shampoo etc is optional as well). 

Items that I packed temporarily for the hospital:
brush and comb 
soap and lotion for his first bath. 

Going home outfit! So cute, I can't stand it!

And then we can’t forget about Mama! 
Since your baby bag is basically meant to hold a few of your essentials as well, here are mine:

-breast pads (I’m sticking more than this in there, but these were samples, and they will be used!) 

I’ll have my own bag for the hospital, but afterwards I plan to place my phone, wallet, and a snack in here. 
I’ll pack an extra shirt in there as well and a shirt and change of underwear for big brother, in the near future. 

Every time I walk into the boys room and see my new diaper bag pack ready for use, the more anxious I get for Baby G3’s arrival. I cant wait to rock this backpack as a mama of 3, confidently and comfortably!

  5. I need to chuckle when I went to tour and utilizing my shaving unit as a satchel. I wasn't going to haul around one of the botanical, texture packs that were accessible with the long handles - like the sea shore sack totes - that was excessively "girly' for my preferences at that point and rucksacks were simply excessively awkward and overwhelming.
