Review: Labor Kit

labor kit

The Labor Kit is a pretty nifty idea.

It’s a new product for pregnant moms who want to make sure they have everything they need for the big day.

It includes all kinds of goodies that women have traditionally packed for their trip to the hospital to give birth.

The Labor Kit I tested out looks like a handy canvas carrying bag (it can be reused as luggage later on) but inside it’s jam packed with the following:

* Tred Mates Pillow Pals non slip socks
* Kiss My Face organic lip balm
* Peri squeeze bottle (remember how  nice these are in those early weeks?)
* Large Stay Dry ice pack (for perineum care postpartum – ouch!)
* Thank You cards
* 20 Newborn Pampers Swaddlers diapers
* 4 extra large postpartum pads
* Pen and Labor Kit spiral bound notebook
* Box of 36 Gerber premium nursing pads
* Full size Lansinoh medical grade lanolin for nursing moms (this stuff is a lifesaver)
* Hospital checklist
* Stress ball to squeeze during contractions
* 2 pairs mesh underwear (great until you fit into your regular undies and to hold pads)
* Share the Joy contact list
* Birth Plan
* Large blue under pads to protect your mattress

This particular kit was not even the top of the line. There are two more kits that have even more stuff inside.

I think this is a great idea for moms who are birthing in a hospital or birthing center, but I think it would be awesome to see a “Green” kit with NatraCare nursing and postpartum pads, for example. The disposable diapers could be gDiapers, Tushies or Seventh Generation. The rest is pretty cool though.

    Hi. I am the co-founder of LaborKit and just read your review. Thank you. I agree that a “green” LaborKit would be fantastic. I had tried to contact gDiaper last year but didn’t hear back. I will look into NatraCare and Tushies for a more enviromentally friendly kit. The Canvas bag is made by EcoRite, who also donates a portion of their profits to environmental causes. We will work towards being more “green” and are greatful for your comments. If you have any other feedback, feel free to contact me directly.

  2. I think a Green Labor Kit would be awesome too. In addition to the environmentally friendly diapers I would suggest cloth nursing pads too. That’s a great package though!
