Birth Bag

I’m in my third trimester. When did you pack your birth bag and what did you put in it?

Our Mommy MD Guide’s reply:  I packed my bag early–around a week or so before I went into labor.  I also packed reading materials, outfits for the baby, and my Boppy to help me breastfeed.  I also took my computer because the hospital has wireless Internet.  I was actually able to use my computer because the baby slept a lot!
