I always get excited when it’s time to pack the hospital bag. It’s like packing your suitcase when you’re going on holiday - it means you’re so close to the end and so close to meeting your precious little baby!
I have had two experiences of packing a hospital bag, being a mum of two little humans. I would definitely say the second time around I was more brutal with what I took and what I realised I just didn’t need. I recommend packing your bag between 35-37 weeks – I personally packed at 35 weeks. The first time, because I was so excited, and I wanted to be prepared and the second time because I went into labour and had my first at 37 weeks to the day! So, I was expecting something similar the second time around (I had my second at 38 weeks).
