What to pack in your baby’s bag for delivery day

As I explained before on Mom’s Delivery Bag Checklist, I strongly recommend having the bags ready by week 34 (one for you and one for your baby). I’m a visual person, so I selected some pictures so you have a better idea on what to pack, but below I explain everything with details.

Mom’s Delivery Bag Checklist

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.

Recently, I published an article about how to prepare a Baby Shower without spending a fortune, check it out here Baby Shower on a Budget. I had that article ready for a while but I didn’t post it because me, and a group of friends, wanted to surprise a pregnant couple that we love. We know each other since 10th grade, and we get really excted every time any of us is expecting a baby. In this case, IT’S A GIRL! Baby Paola is on her way. Paola’s parents (my friends) didn’t want to make a Baby Shower, so we (the group of friends) secretly prepared a “Surprise Baby Shower” for them.

Baby Shower on Budget

Some couples don’t want the Baby Shower (BBSH) because they get embarrassed for inviting people to get presents for them. Others prefer buying the baby stuff themselves instead on spending money on a party. Others make huge BBSH parties, spend bunch of money, more than what they receive in presents. Everybody makes thing different and I respect everyone’s opinions because it all depends on what you really want and on the BUDGET you have planned for it. But if you ask me for advice, I would tell you to

“What to do when your baby gets the cold”

***Recuerda abajo está en Español***

On this post I want to share my experience and tell you what works for me.

The first cold is awful (it is always awful) because you have no experience on taking care of a sick child 24×7 (my case). It all starts with some mucus, then stay awake all night trying to make your baby feel better because of the stuffy nose, then some fever, then you freak out and call the doctor to get an appointment. Check up done. Nothing to worry about, it is “just a cold”. Lots of fluids and Tylenol when fever. Sounds easy huh? Keep on reading to find some advices on what to do when your baby gets the cold.
