Some moms may be super organized and have their hospital bag all packed and ready to go early in their pregnancy. For most moms in their first pregnancy, trying to figure out what to pack and when can be a bit overwhelming. We asked some of our pediatricians, who also happen to be moms, what they recommend and we’ve put their suggestions together in a list to help make it easier for you to get prepared for the big day.
Because babies, especially multiples like twins or triplets, sometimes show up early, a good time to pack your bag is around the last week of your 7th month, or the first week of your 8th month. Here are the things you’ll want to include in your bag to help you through labor and make your stay after delivery more comfortable.
We've also provided a quick checklist for you to download so you can check off the basics as you gather them.
