Ideal Hospital Bag Packing List

As you all know by this point, I didn’t actually get to pack a bag for the hospital since Four came 5 weeks early. I was pretty unprepared when it happened and was only able to grab a few things before rushing to the hospital. I grabbed my phone, a charger, my ID, a blanket and some towels since I was leaking water like crazy. But since having Four, I’ve…
