Babies don’t always stick to the rules when deciding when to be born. Sometimes they are early and sometimes they are late, but since you never know when he’ll decide to make his appearence, it’s best to be prepared! Have a bag packed at least a couple weeks before your due date.
Here is a Packing List of important items:
Birth Plan (if you have one)
Toiletries & Cosmetics
Sanitary pads (not tampons)
Dressing gown & slippers
Outfit to wear home (keep it roomy!)
Nursing bra (if you have one) and nursing pads
Magazines, books, CD’s
Calling card/change for pay phones
Outfit and hat for baby to wear home
