Babytime Bags Saves the Day | Review & Giveaway

Going into labor five weeks early was not on my agenda last month. I still had SO much to do to prepare for baby, including packing a hospital bag. I kept putting it off because I had plenty of time, or so I thought. When we were told that I was being admitted and having a baby, we had nothing with us. There were items that I absolutely needed while laboring: chap stick, headband, hair ties, etc. as well as things I would need once baby arrived. When I was admitted into labor and delivery, I sent DH home with a list of things to grab for me. This would have been a disaster if I hadn’t received a Babytime Bags bbBasic Pre-Packed Hospital Bag a few weeks beforehand. Instead of taking a long time to gather the items I needed and possibly forgetting something, I had him grab my Babytime Bag that contained everything I could need.

Babytime Bags takes all of the guess work out of packing a labor and delivery bag. “What do I pack in my hospital labor bag?!” is no longer something an expectant mama needs to dwell on, thanks to Babytime Bags! Babytime Bags is a pre-packed maternity bag collection by LuxeLife LLC. LuxeLife is a mom-owned-company, committed to creating and providing well thought-out, high quality products that address the needs and “wishes” of multi-tasking, highly motivated, extraordinary moms and moms-to-be {just like them}. Babytime Bags are made by moms, for moms, so you know it’s going to have everything you can think of in it!

Included in each bag are high-end, organic practical products that will help make your hospital stay comfortable and easy to prepare for — cross packing your bag off your list!  The cost of a Babytime Bag is nearly half of what you would pay if you purchased everything that is included in this must-have carryall. Although I got use out of everything in my bag, there were several items that made labor and recovery so much easier. Bonus: everything came inside a gorgeous black tote that I now use as an extra diaper bag.

  • Flip flops/shower shoes: I wore these postpartum while my ankles were so swollen that my regular shoes wouldn’t fit.
  • Fuzzy socks: My hospital room was soo cold so it was nice having a cute pair of fuzzy socks to keep me warm.
  • Slippers: I definitely would not have thought to pack slippers but am glad they were in my bag. It was nice having something to slip on/off for trips back and forth to the NICU and they were SO incredibly comfy. I still where them now ;)
  • Deodorant: It was a long labor. I got sweaty. ‘Nuff said.
  • Pen and Pad: Again, not something I would have thought to pack but it was nice to have on hand. I used it to record times and it came in handy when writing my birth story.
  • Headband and hair tie: I couldn’t stand my hair in my face so these things were lifesavers.
My Babytime Bag was such a LIFESAVER for me. I truly used (and in some cases, still use) every product that came inside my bag. DH kept raving about how useful it was and how it kept him from going on a wild goose chase at home to collect my things.
