Joshlynn's Journey -Hospital Bag

All our bags are packed.. and we are READY to go!

At first I was a bit clueless on what to pack in our bags until I asked numerous mom's and researched checklists upon checklists on "What to pack for your hospital stay". I wanted to only really bring things I would 'need' and things that were to make our short stay as comfortable as possible. So I packed my bag as though I was on a mini vacation. There are some things missing in these pictures as I still use them daily but I will include them in my list for you to see. 

Hopefully this will be helpful to anyone else who is wondering on what to pack in your hospital bag.
