After my baby was taken into Hospital last week with Bronchiolitis, He and I spent several hours waiting before being admitted to a ward, After it got me thinking that as parents we should have a bag ready to go and packed with a few essential items should we suddenly need to stay away, be it at a Hospital at a relatives or even getting stuck at work when the roads are un safe to drive due to snow ( this has also happened to me )
So in the just in case bag I have now packed
Clothing – Something warm ( big cardigan ) believe it or not the Hospital was freezing as under a air conditioning vent . I’ve also put a pair of leggings and a T-shirt just to freshen up.
Clean Knickers, Socks, Bra,Slippers plus a nightie or pjyama’s- Simple but so necessary
A vanity bag – Mini Shampoo, Conditioner, Showergel, Tooth brush and Toothpaste plus deodorant,sanitary products, face wipes and moisturizer. (Pretty much the bare minimum to feel vaguely clean, I have major OCD and have to shower every morning without fail and wash my hair ) annoyingly I cannot break this habit.
Spare change and a snack ( although a bit tricky because it could go off )
Mobile phone charger or charge pack. I’ve seen these for really reasonable prices recently.
This is just for the main parent/ carer, Then I would tell someone where it is in case you need it. ( To my Husband it is the black bag on top of my wardrobe )
Do you have a bag like this packed? Would love to hear what you pack?
