Celeb mum-of-two Kourtney Kardashian knows a thing or two about giving birth, and has taken to her official website to share her advice.
The 33-year-old reality star is mum to 2-year-old son Mason and gave birth to daughter Penelope Scotland just four days ago. In her video “mommy blog” Kourtney shared her checklist for what to pack in your hospital bag.
"Last time I went to the hospital I packed every single thing in my closet, and I didn’t even open my bag until it was time to leave and get dressed to go home,” Kourtney says. “So this time I’m packing a little bit more wisely,” said Kourtney
“I have my video camera, so I can capture all the special moments,” Kourtney says.
“I’ve brought my own hospital gown this time, and it’s actually a stylish little gown,” Kourtney says. “Who knows if I’ll wear it because at that point you just don’t want to be cute and you just want to wear the big, frump, comfortable hospital gowns.”
“I bought an outfit to come home from the hospital,” she said, revealing that this includes tracksuit bottoms, a sweatshirt, three pairs of cozy, fluffy socks and trainers.
“I’d love my daughter to meet me in a fabulous outfit or see me going home but it’s all about comfort.”
“You need bras with no underwire, Kim actually gave me these ones,” Kourtney says. “Then I have my little toiletry bag, I have lip balm, rubber bands, my toothbrush, some dental floss, deodorant and face wash.”
“What I still need to pack is the baby’s first outfit home from the hospital which needs to be really cute,” Kourtney says. “I saved Masons, and I think it’s something that you’ll want to save. And a cozy blanket for the baby.”
“I’m going to keep [the bag] in my car so I’m good to go no matter where I am.”
Kourtney also included a cord blood kit to bank the baby’s blood along with the other items.
