My Hospital Bag: What I Loved Having With Me When I Gave Birth
Considering the amount of travel I do for work, I’m a bit of a packing pro. However, packing a bag to bring to the hospital when you're going to give birth involves an entirely different thought process. Whether you’re having your first baby or your third, selecting the items to have with you on delivery day is a daunting task. You want to bring enough, but not too much. You want to be surrounded by favorite comforts, but nothing so precious that you’d be devastated if it got ruined or left behind. Take a look at the items I had to have in my hospital bag.
Natori Cotton Terry Robe ($150)
This is the most amazing bathrobe. It’s so soft and warm; it’s like wearing a blanket. It’s perhaps not the most glamorous robe, but when you’re sleeping and nursing around the clock, comfort is essential. I loved it so much that #TeamIvanka bought Theodore a baby-sized bathrobe as a welcome-home gift.
Canon PowerShot G7 X Digital Camera ($579)
When I had Joseph, we bought an actual video camera to bring to the hospital, and we’ve hardly used it since. This time, I asked the in-house photographer at IvankaTrump.com, to help me find the best camera to take both still images and video. This one has lived up to his recommendation. It’s so easy to use, and it captures great shots. Now, my next task is to put all of the images into a book. Artifact Uprising, I’ll be heading your way soon!
