Explore putchi's exquisite range of maternity loungewear, nursing bras, and postpartum essentials to enhance your hospital bag. From labor to post-delivery, putchi's collections are designed to make you feel confident and beautiful during this extraordinary time.



Comfortable and Cozy Robe:

A soft, lightweight robe is a hospital bag MVP. Perfect for the post-delivery recovery period, it provides comfort and easy access for breastfeeding while maintaining a touch of home.


Nursing-friendly Kaftan:

Pack a set of pajamas, kaftan designed for nursing to keep you feeling comfortable and confident. Opt for front-opening tops for easy access during those late-night feeds.


Non-Slip Slippers or Socks:

Hospitals can be chilly, and navigating the halls requires comfortable and slip-resistant footwear. Keep your toes cozy with non-slip slippers or socks for added safety.


Hydrating Snacks:

Labor can be exhausting, and hospital meals might not hit the spot. Pack a variety of hydrating snacks like nuts, dried fruit, and granola bars to keep your energy up during labor and recovery.


Toiletries and Skincare Essentials:

Bring your favorite toiletries and skincare items to freshen up during your hospital stay. A soothing moisturizer, lip balm, and travel-sized toiletries can make you feel more at home.


Entertainment and Relaxation Items:

Pack a book, magazine, or your favorite playlist to help pass the time during early labor or moments of rest. Consider including stress-relief tools like a stress ball or essential oils for relaxation.


Postpartum Care Products:

Don't forget items like maternity pads, comfortable underwear, and any postpartum care products recommended by your healthcare provider. These essentials ensure you're prepared for the physical aspects of post-delivery recovery.


Packing your hospital bag with these must-have essentials ensures you're well-prepared for the exciting and transformative experience of bringing a new life into the world. Remember to personalize your bag with items that bring you comfort and a sense of familiarity.
