Packing pointers from the pregnant ladies:

  • I would personally say three months before your due date, due to the possibility of premature labor. Obviously there would be nothing worse than going into premature labor without any of your personal belongings to make your experience much better. Plus, if you do go into labor early, the chances are you won't have the time to go round the house looking for the things you need to take into hospital.

  • A few weeks before your due date, unless you're at risk for premature labor - or a worry-wart by nature.

  • Pack it at least four weeks before. That way, if your water breaks or you go into labor early, you can get to the hospital and not have to concentrate on the stress of having to pack stuff and go around.

  • I agree... I'm 35 weeks' pregnant and I packed my bags yesterday! You never know what could happen. I packed my bags and put them in the trunk, because you never know when contractions could hit, and you don't want to be running back to the house to grab everything. It's also a good idea to install the car seat a few weeks prior to your due date.

  • See... I was just so excited that I had my bags packed at 30 weeks and I kept switching what I was bringing all the time. If I would have known what I was having from Day 1, I might have packed then...

  • I would think around 5-6 months.

  • Any time after 26 weeks.

  • Any time you like; it depends on how long you have left, but why not add a little each week and then by the time you have reached near to the end you'll be all ready to go and not need to rush out and buy anything, but just check you have it all. That way it's less stressful and gives you something to do, as well as help to count down to the big day!!

  • Two months before your due date; that way if it's a premature birth you will still be ready.

  • I packed mine six weeks before my due date, which actually ended up being 8 weeks before the baby was born.

You should have your hospital bag ready to go between the 32 and 35 weeks of pregnancy. You may start packing it at any time in your pregnancy, but it is important to have everything packed by your 35th week in case baby comes early.

And if you want to buy some clothes for your baby. I suggest Kimibear. There have so many pretty styles and the price are great.

Check for an expiration date on the bottom of lid. It should be used before that date.
