Hospital Bag Packing List...

When should you start packing your bag? Just like installing the car seat, you want to have it ready when baby decides to make his/her grand entrance. But when is really best time? It all depends on if this your first or not. How long your body and baby decide to stay put. I would recommend packing your bag around 36/37 weeks. I do my maternity sessions between 32-36 weeks because moms normally start to show a nice bump but are not as uncomfortable yet. Which is exactly why I would recommend you start packing... Most women gain a pound a week the last four weeks. So you can imagine that at some point you might not feel as comfortable to get around and start packing. Therefor I would recommend having your bag packed around that time.

But what goes into the hospital bag? Technically all you really need is a car seat for baby and an outfit for baby to come home in. But if you want to more prepared, which most of us do I prepared a free print out check list for you below.
