36 Weeks pregnant and time to get things done! Something no mama can escape is packing those hospital bags. A while back I shared my essential checklist for all things Mama will be needing during her hospital stay. Today we focus on baby and what to pack in that little hospital bag for baby… 1st you’ll need a bag. Baby goodies are tiny so you won’t need an entire suitcase. A large overnight or weekend duffle works well. My choice……
