Que mettre dans sa valise de maternité ? (Version maman)

What to put in your maternity suitcase? (Mom version)

Packing your maternity suitcase is a bit like getting ready for a great adventure , but with a lot more cuddles in store! Here is a practical and non-exhaustive list so that you and your little one are perfectly equipped for your stay in the maternity ward.

1. Comfortable clothes:

  • Open-front nightgowns or pajamas for breastfeeding,
  • nursing bras,
  • ultra comfortable (or disposable ) panties,
  • and a cozy bathrobe.

The little extra: What if you chose a pretty breastfeeding outfit for your return home?

elegant cotton nursing blouse

2. Your complete toiletry bag:

  • The essentials: toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant...
  • As well as your favorite skincare products to make you feel good (a small sample of your perfume for example)

The little extra: Also think about special postpartum sanitary towels, we particularly recommend the Mamacitas kit

3. “Cocoon” accessories:

  • slippers or flip-flops,
  • warm socks (depending on the season),
  • your breastfeeding pillow,
  • additional pillows for optimal comfort
The little extra: Slip a small night light into your suitcase so you don't have to turn on the white neon in the middle of the night when baby needs your arms.

4. Entertainment and relaxation:

  • Books and magazines...
  • Tablet and headphones...
  • A small speaker to play a playlist composed in advance for when you are in labor, or after

The little extra: An extension so you can access your phone and other accessories from your bed

5. Some administrative documents:

  • your identity card,
  • your social security card and mutual insurance card,
  • your medical file,
  • your birth plan (if you have one),
  • your blood group card.

The little extra: Let's dry things up a bit to slip something fun into this paragraph ;)

There you have it, your checklist for a well-filled maternity suitcase! Enjoy every moment, from the first tears to the first smiles, this adventure is unforgettable.

As this well-known little quote said: Childbirth is the only blind date where you are sure to meet the love of your life!

Good preparation and above all, enjoy these unique moments to come!
