In the very last stages of the third trimester, it’s time to keep the hospital bag ready, both for yourself and your partner. Since the baby can be here anytime, we are more than sure you would be waiting to see your feet again. Can you imagine, your baby at present is similar to the size of a watermelon?
Well, very soon you will have the little one in your arms. But before that, some preps are essential!
So, without further ado, here’s what you should be knowing and working on now!
If you have an elder kid, make arrangements and back up plans for childcare. Now would be the right time to keep your older child’s grandparents around so that they can take care of his school and food, while you get a little busy with the newborn in the house.
It’s always better to be prepared. During your doctor’s visit, have a detailed discussion about labor. Next, try and understand the logistics of the hospital-it terms of parking, entry for urgent labor, get info on the nurse or assistant doctor’s names.
Things to pack in your hospital bag: Medical reports, dresses, slippers, socks (if the weather is cold), electronics- mobile phones, chargers, music (check with the hospital if you can use the same), massage oil, lotion, lip balm, hair band, napkins, wipes, book to read, extra pillows, cushions. Carry ATM cards, insurance papers, cash and small change, watch, shawl, stole or dupatta, and toiletries.
And now for the baby: Have few sets of clothes that are suited to the season- innerwear, sweaters, socks, a cap, nappies, diaper sets, wet wipes, soft towel, tissues.
The Diaper Bag: Baby and a diaper bag go hand in hand. Once your baby is born you need to carry the bag around for a few years. The below are few pointers that need to be followed while you pack your diaper bag for your baby. Ensure you have a bag with multiple compartments so you can keep your items organized and it becomes easy to find them when you need it.
Grandma’s Tip: You can carry extra clothes for your baby in case there are some spills or spit out and the clothes might get soiled. In case you need to carry medicines or snacks in the same bag, do pack it properly. Enjoy your time in planning and relaxing with your loved ones.
