Alison Jordan: What’s in my Hospital Bag?
Alison Jordan is due any day now, but she’s had her hospital bag packed for weeks.
Jordan, a regular TV host for E! And Extra based in Santa Monica is expecting her first baby with husband Michael Jordan (no, not that one!) and plan to name their new little guy Oliver. Jordan who is anxiously awaiting the big day, said she had several friends who all recommended the same few products to bring along to the hospital.
“I had several girlfriends recommend I bring my Belly Bandit along with me to help with recovery and just hold everything in tight post delivery (if no c-section),” Jordan said. “That and comfy socks!”
Read on for the rest of the essentials she has packed and ready to go in her hospital bag.

The Hospital Bag: JuJuBee BFF Diaper Bag ($180)
Monica + Andy Coming Home Blanket ($38)

Summer Fridays Jet Lag Mask ($48)
“Super easy (and only good ingredients) mask you don’t even have to wash off. Why not bring a little luxury and pampering to the hospital room?!”
