Hospital Hygge

We all know that hospital stays can be stressful and uncomfortable, so creating a warm and inviting atmosphere for the family is key to making their stay more bearable. Hygge is a Danish word that describes a particular quality of coziness and comfort that creates a feeling of contentment or well-being. We will explore how to create a Hygge atmosphere in your hospital room with a few simple items.

One of the easiest ways to create a more cozy atmosphere is to bring in items that bring comfort and warmth to the room. Try the following items to add a little bit of Hygge to your child's hospital room:

  1. Blankets from home, especially those that are extra soft and can be machine washed.

  2. Pillows from home, especially those that are extra fluffy and have a fun pillowcase. Again machine washable will be important in case of spills.

  3. Comfortable and fun socks are a great way to keep feet warm in sometimes cold hospital rooms.

  4. Your favorite hoodie, cardigan, or pajama pants. Your child's team knows this is a medical home for your family temporarily and won't judge comfortable and modest clothing around the hospital.

  5. Warm drinks like hot cocoa, tea, or coffee can create a homey atmosphere while providing much-needed warmth on cold days.

  6. You can add a few decorations or family photos to the room to make it feel more like home.

  7. Battery-operated candles will bring a sense of warmth even when you can't have real candles.

We hope this has given you some ideas for creating a cozy and comfortable atmosphere in your hospital room. Remember, Hygge is all about creating a feeling of contentment and well-being. Feel free to experiment with different items and decorations to create a space that works best for you and your family.
