What To Pack for the Hospital

Hello there!

Unfortunately I had to spend two nights in the hospital and I might need to go back again, but don’t worry – it’s nothing too serious.

So I was thinking – Why not make the best of the situation?

Why not write a blog post?

I couldn’t find a reason not to, so ‘ere we go!

Ps.: So sorry for not having photos with this post, but I just didn’t have the time to take pictures, but I’m going to give you some links instead!

1.

You are going to need multiple pyjamas.

But really, go all out on them. I would recommend to bring at lest 2 pairs of long pyjama pants with long-, and shortsleeved shirts. If you feel comfortable in sleeveless tops, then you can bring them as well, but there’s just something about the thought of my skin and the hospital bedding touching more than necessary…it’s just..ew. The same thing applies to shorts as PJ pants, but you know, we gotta have it all. And most importantly, you can wear these pants in the daytime too!

2.

Cosy. Pants.

Joggers, leggings, yoga pants, or anything you want because believe me, you’re basically going to live in them  – most likely if you’re going for an overhaul or surgery, but not sure if you’re going for a longer therapy –  and if they aren’t poking you with needles or sending you over to other doctors to have a look at you, you are going to lay in bed, or sit on it, whatever suits you, and the best for it are comfortable pants.

If you want to go for something a bit fancier, then you can throw on silk pants too.

3.

Comfortable jumpers and/or hoodies, t-shirts, and longsleeves.

See the reasons above, why these are one of the best things that can happen to you in the hospital.

But of course the best choice is to steal some of your boyfriend’s – or dad’s – oversized shirts.

4.

Toiletries

You know, the usual. Toothpaste, toothbrush, hairbrush, shower gel, cleanser, tissues (!),etc, etc..

5.

“Normal” clothes, for when you’re leaving the hospital.

6.

Underwear, duh.

7.

Shoes – Everyday shoes, slippers…

8.

Things to entertain yourself. Books, magazines, your phone -» earphones/headphones, a notebook, etc…

My current favourites are:

Mood Book – Productive

Pineapple Pattern Notebook

So here is the ultimate list!

  • Pyjamas
  • Comfortable pants and shirts
  • Toiletries
  • Casual everyday wear
  • Underwear
  • Footwear
  • Entertainment
  • Electronics and chargers

+

  • All of your papers

Thank you for reading!

I hope that this post was helpful to you, even if just in the slightest way.
