Jem & Bea


The perfect mom bag. 
If you follow me on social media, you know that I finally received my gift from the stork! Nu was born last Wednesday, November 15, 2017. The day after my birthday (thank god lol)!

Jem & Bea is a brand known for making stylish moms transition easily into motherhood. They make leather products with moms in mind, including features such as: 2 exterior pockets, 8 interior pockets, a padded changing mat, water repellent lining, an insulated bottle carrier, a detachable wristlet, and the list goes on.

I received this bag as a gift from Nu's Godfather at my baby shower. I was so overwhelmed with joy when I opened it, I actually teared up. 
While I was waiting to use it for its intended purpose, I used it as my go-bag. 

The main goal is to bring whatever will make you feel the most at ease during your stay at the hospital. A glorified overnight bag if you will. 

Heres a list of what I brought:
  • 2 nursing bras
  • 3 pairs of granny panties (loose underwear)
  • clothes to wear so you won't be stuck in the hospital gown 
  • a going home outfit
    • one for me
    • one for dad
    • two for Nu (just in case)
  • 2 pairs of warm, fuzzy socks with grip
  • 1 pair of socks for Nu 
  • Hunter slides
  • Sugar-free Jolly Ranchers
  • Simply facial wipes
  • Honest nipple cream 
  • Dove deodorant 
  • a pack of toothbrushes 
  • Toothpaste
  • Carmex chapstick 
  • U by Kotex heavy-duty pads with wings
  • Focal point (something to look at while I push) 
Don't forget:
  • ID 
  • Birthing Plan (if you have one)
  • Phone 
  • Charger(s)
    • Pre-charged portable charger 
Snacks:
  • Kettle-cooked Jalapeño chips
  • Individual bags of Doritos
  • Welches Fruit Snacks
  • Cheez-Its 
  • Pineapples
  • Grapes
  • WATER 
Although these snacks keep me satisfied during my stay, I was fiending for real food. If you're like me and my boyfriend, you won't like the hospital food, so make sure to have a friend or family member secured with the job of bringing real, healthy food and water bottles.


Now that I'm home and getting used to mom life, I've replaced a lot of the stuff in the bag with everyday products such as:
  • Huggies newborn diapers
  • Boudreaux's Butt Paste
  • Huggies wipes
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Pacifier
  • Pacifier wipes 
  • a change of clothes for Nu 
  • U by Kotex pads 
  • day-to-day purse essentials 
    • wallet
    • chapstick
    • etc.
