Diapers I will wash probably around 32 weeks. DS2 was a preemie so I need to be ready to go sooner than I was with him since I wasn't at all with!
Yeah that was my thoughts too. Both the boys were early 36 and 37 weeks. here I am over 38 weeks and no sign of this babe coming any time soon. Been 2cm dialated since 35 weeks.


wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.

Exactly! I don't want them sitting around unwashed for weeks. I'm 38 weeks and have prepped diapers but not washed clothes. I'm going to wash a few outfits and have my Mom or DH wash the rest when the baby comes (my Mom is watching the kids while I'm in labor and knowing her, she'll be excited and want to do it then).
In with my DH, crunchy, attached Mama to 4. Homeschooling, long term breastfeeding, CD'ing, babywearing, homebirthing. Could I BE anymore addicted to cloth?!

I had everything ready to go around 35 weeks. I like having everything in order and not having to worry about it at the last minute as you never know when they wanna come! I'm now 39.2 weeks :-)

I think I started washing stuff around 34 weeks saving diapers for last. I'm glad I got it done and over with early. Baby's going to be living in the house, so I wasn't worried about stuff sitting around already washed. I was more concerned with getting the manufacturing chemicals off the clothes.
