Mom’s Delivery Bag Checklist

***Recuerda abajo está en Español***

When should you get your bag ready for delivery day?

I strongly recommend having your bag ready to go by week 34. Actually both bags, yours and your baby’s. Check out here the Baby’s Delivery Bag Checklist. It’s a bit early but it’s better to have everything ready by yourself than go into early labor “by surprise” and have another person preparing and bringing your stuff later. In my case, my water broke by week 36, but I know someone that had her baby by week 35. It was completely fine, just earlier than expected. Just in case…pack early. I just gather some pictures (see below) so you have a better idea, but following I explain everything with details.
