When should you pack your Birth / Hospital Bag?

Generally you want to have your bag ready to go by 36 weeks, however it is best to start getting ready from the third trimester (28 weeks) just in case your little babe enters the world a little earlier than expected. Don’t get me wrong you don’t have to have your bag fully packed by 28 weeks, it's just a good idea to start collecting a few things that you may need and just adding to a bag or making wee pile (this is a great starting point) then when you have time you can sit and check off that you have everything that you may need.

I don’t think there is any reason to worry about having your hospital bag to early, it’s good to have bags ready to grab if needed rather than having nothing packed at all 💙
