As someone who has only ever been able to travel during the school holidays, we decided to make the most of my maternity leave and book a reasonably priced holiday!
Once Thomas was born and the holiday was getting closer, I started to panic… we were going to have to pack a lot! I have never been one to pack light, so I knew I needed to find some ways to make packing, and travelling with a 5 month old, easier.
These are some of the packing hacks I found and used for little mans first holiday.
1 in 4 women carry Group B Strep during pregnancy without knowing. Testing can make all the difference (Strepelle, 2018).
Before my friend fell pregnant, I had never heard of Group B Strep. I remember the sheer panic when she got a positive test result back. She was sure her baby was going to die or be incredibly poorly. Like myself, before falling pregnant, she had never heard about Group B Strep and didn’t understand much about it. Luckily she tested, she got her results, antibiotics were given and her baby was absolutely fine! I knew then, that when I fell pregnant, testing would be on my essential baby buys list! When I started to blog, I wanted to raise awareness of the importance of testing.
What have I packed?…
I have been thinking about what to pack in my hospital bags for quite a while and I managed to find time to write yet another list! I decided I would pack my bag and baby’s bags separately.
So I decided to write another list…
Having your first baby is definitely daunting, it’s definitely exciting and your definitely going to end up with way too many things! Especially if you’re like me… I love a list and love going shopping.
