Maternity bag

Knowing what to put in your maternity bag is not necessarily easy, especially when you are expecting your first baby.

To make your life easier, KIABI is sharing this list so as not to forget anything on D-Day! Start preparing your maternity bag around the 7th or 8th month of pregnancy so all is prepared and you can leave the house calmly. Do not hesitate to print the list to fill in as you go until the departure for the big and happy event :) And do not panic if you forget something, your partner, family or friends will be there to support you.

Bag for yourself

Besides the baby birth kit, what should you plan for your maternity suitcase? 

Even if the future star is your little wonder, don't forget to pamper yourself for D-Day! Think of everything that can be useful to you, do you good, enhance you to be to your advantage ... In short: think (also) of yourself! Here is the list of what you can take for motherhood.

Bag for your baby

Now it's time to select the right clothes so that the first week of your little one's life is welcoming and cozy.

The drawers in his little room are full, baby shopping was right for you for nine months? Baby maternity suitcase user manual!
Baby must be hot! The essential body-socks-beanie combo in addition to pajamas and bra.
Baby has been 9 months warm at 37 °, so it will have to be done at the outside temperature and be well covered. Knowing that a large part of the heat loss passes through the head, do not neglect the little hat. For your information, the little mittens often sold with birth kits are not essential: they especially prevent babies from scratching if their nails are long (you will not be able to cut them right away at birth).
