From the hospital, we received a small pack of diapers and a sitz bath, though at the time I had no idea what that was. When the nurse left I ran around the room stuffing our bag with all of the supplies I could - witch hazel pads, sanitary napkins, disposable underwear, you know, the good stuff! I was pretty proud of the loot I managed to get out of there with.
But do you know what would have been much much cooler? Receiving The Luxury Care (TLC) Swag Bag! I'd never heard of it until the owner of Gugu Guru (an awesome new baby registry that takes your style into account) introduced it to me a week ago, and it's a pretty brilliant idea!! Basically, brands pay sponsorship to have their coupons, samples, and products included in the tote bag, and then TLC Swag Bag partners with hospitals and birth centers to have their bags given to new moms at discharge... FOR FREE!!! All items in the bag are baby friendly and hospital approved.
