Review and Competition // BabiesRUs Hospital Bag

A few weeks ago BabiesRUs offered to send me a hospital bag to review. I love a good bag (I suspect you do too?) and was thinking that it would be full of the usual stuff for baby and mum, half of which wouldn’t really get used. So when a huge box came addressed to me I was curious to see what the team had put together for me.

I was throughly surprised, so surprised I emailed the PR and thanked her for what seemed like a massive treat for me! Hardly any baba content just a wonderful bag to make mum feel luxurious whilst staying in hospital.

The Bag was a Silver Cross change bag which was really sturdy and quite hardy for a change bag.



 The only item that was for baby was this cute unisex baby blanket.

Then we get onto the stuff for me!!

  A pair of black havianas

Hair bobbles

Vaseline – great for dry lips when on gas and air!

There was a lot of gorgeous things from The White Company

A dressing gown worth £50

A nightie (non breastfeeding style) worth £35

A waffle pair of slippers

A waffle wash bag

A towel

I am so in love with the nightie and dressing gown that I’ve been wearing them a lot. The material is really light so perfect for me whilst pregnant. The rest of the items in the bag are so practical but with a real thought behind them. Definitely not like my throwing a bag together!

Let me know what’s your hospital or home birth bag essential!

The lovely team also gave me £20 to spend at BabiesRUs but as I feel I have received such a generous package from them already I would love for one of our readers to have them!

    I would say one of the main essentials would be snacks! A good chocolate bar can do wonders just when you need one 🙂

    Some cartons of juice or a bottle of squash. The gas and air really left my throat feeling dry, and water on its own didn’t really help x
