An additional little bub would entail some changes in your home, and you need to do this before your delivery. As early as possible, prepare your home for the coming of your little one. Buy all the baby essentials two months before the delivery and make changes on your nursery room. You should also stock up your pantry and buy lots of toiletries as you might not be able to do some grocery trip after the delivery. Aside from preparing your home, you will also need to prepare your loved one before the stork arrives. If you have older children, you need to prepare them mentally and emotionally.
- Prepare your hospital bags
Hospital bags should be on top of the list when you are preparing for your delivery. A month before your due date, you and your little one’s hospital bag should be prepared and keep in a safe place, ready for grabbing once your water broke. Ask your relatives about the essentials or you can download one on the internet.
