A Pre-Packed Hospital Bag: Worth the Cost?

There’s plenty of information out there on what exactly you should pack in your hospital bag.

And surprise, surprise, the advice is sometimes contradictory.

But what about if you could buy a pre-packed hospital bag, fully stocked with everything you’d need in the hospital? And how much would you pay for this convenience?

One company — BFFL Co — is taking the guesswork out of hospital packing with their Mommy/Delivery BFFLBag. Take a look at everything that’s included, and let me know if you think it’s worth the $120 price tag:

The Mommy/Delivery hospital bag has plenty of extra room for clothes and personal essentials, but it also includes:

  • An “axillapilla” pillow for C-Section recovery and breastfeeding support
  • A collapsable water bottle
  • Perineal ice packs
  • Washable nursing pads
  • Wound/incision care pack
  • Disposable underwear
  • Toiletries (like a toothbrush and dry shampoo)
  • Flip flops
  • Skin care essentials
  • An expandable folder for important hospital papers and/or baby keepsakes
  • Snack bars
  • An “amusement pack” (deck of cards, note pads, thank-you cards, etc.)
  • A feeding/changing log

That, and 15% of your purchase is donated to the Harvard School of Public Health Women’s and Health Initiative.

At first I thought that the $120 price tag was too steep, but it truly comes with everything you could possibly need — down to thank-you notes for extra attentive nurses and thoughtful hospital gift-givers.

And even if you wouldn’t spend this much on a hospital bag, it definitely makes a cool baby shower gift idea.

What do you think? Is the Mommy/Delivery BFFLBag worth the cost?
