WHAT TO PACK FOR A BABYMOON

April 05, 2022 2 min read

The “babymoon” is a recent phenomenon (and one I fully support - moms & dads, #treatyourself) that basically just means a vacation that expecting parents take in the months before their baby arrives. It’s a time to pause the prep on the nursery and take a minute away from doctor’s appointments to celebrate the gifts of life and love. If you’re going to take a babymoon, don’t worry about fitting in your old clothes. Instead, treat yourself to a few new items that make you feel like the goddess that you are. Here is what to pack for a babymoon.

 

SWIMSUIT 

If you want to treat yourself on a tropical beach, then you’ll need a swimsuit to support this intrepid endeavor. Maternity swimsuits that have a smocked waist will offer support to your bump while still looking chic.

 

AN OUTFIT TO EXPLORE

When it comes to what to pack for a babymoon, it’s time to slip into a calm, cool, casual, and colorful top like this bright orange top from Jessica Simpson for Motherhood Maternity. Pair it with a stretchy pair of these jean shorts for a great outfit to explore!

AN AIRPLANE OUTFIT

When it comes to traveling while pregnant, the name of the game is “comfort.” Be sure to pack stretchy and breathable clothing like these stretchy leggings, shirred top, and seamless bra. This should be the first thing you pack for a babymoon!

 

AN INSTA-WORTHY OUTFIT

Let the world (*ahem* Instagram) know that you’re an expecting mama with this adorable “Mama” Shirt from Motherhood Maternity along with these biker shorts that fully support your growing bump.

 

COMFORTABLE AND SEXY SLEEPWEAR

Travel may not look as jam packed as it used to. For what to pack for a babymoon, don’t forget to pack comfortable loungewear for your hotel room or AirBnb. This lace trim sleep nursing and maternity robe from Motherhood Maternity is the perfect robe to relax in on your babymoon.

 

AN OUTFIT THAT HITS THE EASY BUTTON

Sleeveless Rib Knit Maternity Dress
Take the guesswork out of what to pack for a babymoon and throw in this gorgeous and extremely packable rib knit maternity dress from Motherhood Maternity. It hugs the bump beautifully and is easy to dress up with accessories like a glamorous hat.

 

Speaking from experience, the babymoon is everything it’s cracked up to be. If you’re on the fence about taking one, this is your sign to book it. Soon, you’ll be knee deep in diapers wishing you could have had that one extra (virgin) piña colada on the beach.  Lean into this moment. Book the prenatal massage. Encourage your partner to drink for two. The sky is the limit here, folks.
