So there you are, around 30 weeks pregnant and counting down the weeks until baby arrives (and you finally get to see your toes again). Up until now you have been focused on baby’s health, having a safe pregnancy and trying to remember where you put your keys as preggie brain is a real thing. Now is the time that nesting sets in and the realisation that baby is coming and you have to be ready. The hospital bag will need to be packed as you may just have an early surprise.
The Kiddie Company Hospital Bag
To make packing even easier, The Kiddie Company have put together a Standard Pre-Packed Hospital Bag with items for mom and baby. From the nappy bag to nipple cream, they have you covered. They have sourced parent’s most loved local and international brands and put together a hospital bag which you can feel confident in using. Add a few extra items, and you are ready for baby’s delivery.

We are focused on convenience as we all live in a world where time is precious and once your journey has begun, time will become an even more important factor in your life.

What’s in the bag?
The standard pre-packed hospital bag includes essential items you will need for hospital. You have a choice between colour, size and scent options where applicable. Not only is buying a pre-packed bag more convenient, it also saves you money.
I did a price comparison between buying the items separately versus buying it pre-packed from The Kiddie Company. Taking an average between different retailers (I do love my sums), I found a R1 000 saving in buying the items pre-packed. That is incredible. So it really is an affordable option, whilst still getting top products from trusted brands.
It does not include an outfit for baby and personal hygiene products. Please have a look at my hospital checklist above, for more suggested items to pack.
