I’ve told you before how much I love The Stir on Cafe Mom. The bloggers over there seriously get me laughing and they also offer some really great advice! My latest fave is their post about what items pregnant mamas should pack in their maternity hospital bags. I never would have thought of quit a few of these!
Check ‘em these 5 smart items to pack in your hospital bag, and tell me what you think! What items are in your hospital bag? What must-haves did you bring along?

Cellphone Charger 4 of 6
I doubt any of us would forget our cellphones. But I could totally see myself walking out the door without my charger. And since you might end up in the hospital longer than you plan to (unplanned c-sections obviously happen) not to mention the regular use of your phone you're going to want your charger!
Extra Empty Bag 5 of 6
Another item I never would have thought of! The hospital is going to give you a ton of freebies from diapers, to wipes, and even formula (if you choose to take it). If you don't have any way to carry all the goods home, you'll regret it when you have to purchase those items later.
