Preparing for the end of your pregnancy feels like you’re getting ready for a marathon. Around 35 weeks, every pregnant mom-to-be should have a hospital bag packed and ready to go, in case you see any action. Having it ready always gives me peace of mind. Wondering what to pack and what to skip? Use this FREE Pregnancy Printable Hospital Checklist – for both mom & baby. You’ll be ready to go!
I remember with my first born that I had no idea what to bring to the hospital. Technically, just in case you have an emergency situation, they’ll provide all of your basics. However, you’re going to want a few comforts from home along with items for the baby.
Don’t forget too that you’ll want to install your carseat a few weeks prior to your due date as well. Around 35 weeks is when I’ll pack my hospital bag and get the car seat going. It’s always better to be safe than sorry!
FREE Printable Hospital Checklist For Pregnant Moms
One of my best tips for you is to leave extra space, in your bag, for things that you’ll bring home. The hospital will let you keep things. I brought home breast pump parts, diapers, bottle bags and even diapers. Having the extra space will allow you the opportunity to bring home things you’ll need for your recovery.
I absolutely love purchasing a few matching nightgown or pajama sets for myself and the baby. You’ll want something new that you feel pretty in and don’t mind photos. Keep in mind you’ll be seeing your OB in pajamas during recovery. I always feel better with a new set.
