The Hospital Bag Essential You Haven’t Packed (Yet)
Petite Plume, the brand best known for perfectly preppy and scrumptiously soft family-matching PJs, is reinventing the hospital gown and we are here for it. While you’ll love having it during your hospital stay, we guarantee you’ll keep wearing it long after you and Baby have gone home!
One of the most daunting things to think about when packing your hospital bag is what you’re going to wear during and after labor.
If you’re like us, the following question is probably running through your head:
What can I wear that is comfortable and flattering, but also allows medical staff access for exams and is breastfeeding/c-section friendly?
For a long time, the answer was usually pajamas.
But here’s the thing about pajamas… if it’s a nightgown, it can be difficult to take on and off, isn’t ideal for getting an epidural and, unless it has a button-down front, isn’t all that breastfeeding friendly.
If it’s a PJ set, you’ll need to take your bottoms off for exams and pushing. Also, elasticated waistbands can irritate bellies (especially those with c-section incisions.)
As a brand that listens to its customers, Petite Plume came up with the perfect solution: a new take on the classic hospital gown.
Their simple yet genius design offers mothers:
- The comfort of pajamas, but the functionality of a hospital gown
- Access at the back for easy removal and dressing
- Epidural-friendly design
- Front snap closure on both sides of the chest to allow access for feeding and skin-to-skin
- 100% cotton that’s free of chemicals like pesticides, herbicides, formaldehyde and phthalates
