What to Pack in the Hospital BagBy Nicole van der Hulst
Ok, so you're in your 3rd trimester and Delivery Day is just around the corner. Let's check off the most important To-Dos. Nursery is ready and fully stocked, check. You've got your emergency list of contacts to call for the big day, check. Your hospital bag is ready to go, not checked...
With all of the excitement and preparations taking place, it's easy to overlook the ever so important hospital bag. The biggest, common mistake is when new parents wait until the last minute, or when baby is already on the way, to pack.

Keep in mind, we're not just packing for mommy and baby, daddy will need some essential items too. For a detailed checklist, The Bump has a great list on what to pack that provides exactly what you need from a realistic perspective.
Now stop procrastinating and get packing!
