Baby on the way? We thought we would put together a list of items that we know moms need to have packed for their trip to the hospital when baby says”it’s time”! No you CAN’T pack everything! It is recommended you pack your bag by the end of your 2nd trimester. Although this seems early, its better safe than sorry and you never know if you’ll go early. So stick to the most important stuff. Here is a list of “must-haves” from the moms of Le Top:


For Labor & Mama:

  • Picture ID or driver’s license, insurance card and hospital paper you need (pre-registration forms) 
  • Your birth plan (if you have one) 
  • Eyeglasses (if you need them) and saline solution 
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste 
  • Chapstick (man those lips get chapped!) 
  • Deodorant 
  • Brush 
  • Makeup (not a must, but nice to have) 
  • Bathrobe/nightgown/slippers or socks – Although hospitals provide gowns and socks for you to use during labor, sometimes your own clothes are nice to have. 
  • “grandma” underwear/a.k.a. “not so pretty” undies (comfier post labor)
  • Body lotion
  • Sanitary pads
  • Non-slip socks (good for pacing the hallways)
  • Spray bottle (awesome for cooling you down during labor)
  • ** something to make you relax

For the proud Papa to Be:

  • Toiletries 
  • Comfy shoes and clothes 
  • Fresh clothes 
  • Snacks 
  • Reading materials 
  • Money for parking or the vending machines 
  • Fav pillow


For Ma and Pa:

  • Gifts for other siblings (some parents bring gifts for the “big” siblings to give to their new brother or sister) 
  • Book on newborn care 
  • Camera (with a charged battery) to capture your “first moments” or video camera 
  • Snacks!! You are likely to be hungry after labor. 
  • Fresh nightgown (for mom) 
  • A list of people to call with their phone numbers or email addresses & cell phone charger 
  • Nursing tank tops which snap down or lift up for easy breast feeding 
  • Nursing bras or breast pads

Don't forget the car seat for the drive home.

For Baby:
  • Installed infant car seat (you can’t drive your baby home without one!)
  • “Take-me-home” outfit from Le Top Baby (get something with feet to keep him/her warm)
  • A receiving blanket for swaddling your baby
  • Breastfeeding pillow
  • An empty bag (you always come out with more than you came in with! It is good for diapers, ointments, gauze and pads!)

27 year actress Leelee Sobieski, nominated for an Emmy for her performance in the mini-series Joan of Arc (1999), and her fashion designer fiancé, Adam Kimmel, are expecting their first baby.  A representative of Leelee’s has confirmed the news and also said that the couple is “thrilled” to welcome their first child in December.

Leelee is experiencing plenty of cravings with this first pregnancy and has a theory – “I think I like eating what little kids eat,” Sobieski told PEOPLE at the season opening of the Metropolitan Opera on Monday in New York City.  Chowing down frequently on macaroni and cheese, Sobieski, 27, says that she is preparing for the baby by doing two things: relaxing and eating lots of ice cream.

Leelee appeared in this summer’s Public Enemies (alongside Johnny Depp), modeled for her fiancés Fall/Winter 2009 look book, and will be starring in the indie drama Mad Cow opposite Arrested Development‘s Jeffrey Tambor.

All of us at le•top wish you congratulations on your upcoming new addition! We love ice cream too!

Jenna Elfman and her actor husband Bodhi Elfman are expecting baby number 2 in March!  Jenna, well known for her role in Dharma & Greg, is starring in this season’s new CBS sitcom Accidentally on Purpose. On the show, Jenna plays a practical single woman that becomes pregnant by a good-natured but irresponsible younger man. They move in together and comedy ensues. Her real-life pregnancy seems to be a perfect fit for her new role!

During her appearance on CBS’ The Early Show the 37 year old actress said “I have a baby in my tummy – but a real one, not just for my TV show.  My character’s pregnant the whole first season, so I said, ‘It’s a good time to have another baby, because we won’t have to hide it’”

The couple is already parents to 2-year-old son Story Elias.  Jenna and her husband are head over heels for their son, and are excited to add to their happy family!
