Re: Pre Baby preparation list

We don't need much either. I just started working on my checklist last night. I have all the diapers we need (NB to PTing) and none of our carseats are expiring yet, so we're good in that area. I do want a new stroller, even though, I wear my babies about 98% of the time. Here's what I have so far:

4-6 weeks before:
Set up Pack n Play in master
Take CD inventory
Sort out NB clothing
Register at hospital (I wish we were having a homebirth)
Make and Freeze meals
Finalize the rest of the school-year plans (we homeschool)
Order or Make new PUL diaper pail liner

3 Weeks before:
Laundry (gender neutral clothing, receiving blankets, all diapering items)
Set up carseat
Pack hospital bags (mine, hubby's)
Print out kids' school schedule, weekly school plans, suggested menus, activities, expectations to child-care givers.

2 weeks before:
Print out call list
Email friends and family regarding hospital guidelines (I really wish we were having a homebirth!)
Wash Bowron wool baby rug
Plan out "Sip n See" party
wife to Tim (10/23/99)
Mom to DD (5/04), DS (8/07), DD (2/09)DD (5/13), Blessing #4 in the arms of Jesus 11/2011
