Baby Preparation | Maintaining Freezer Meal Organization | Part 4

Baby Preparation | What’s In My Hospital Bag?

The time has come to discuss all things related to the Hospital Bag!

I had a very small emergency bag that I took with me to our quick, unexpected runs, but this was the real deal. The “you can come in, but you aren’t leaving without a baby” bag.
