When do you wash and prep everything?

Im almost 35 weeks with my 4th pregnancy and wondering...

When do I wash everything? Clothes? Diapers? Bedding? Wraps?

When do you set up the bed (using a cosleeper in my room)?

When do you put in the car seat? (again - we have 3 other kids so not wanting to move things in before necessary)

Thanks! I can't believe I don't remember this!!!!

I start around right where you are right now. Baby could come anytime now.

I just felt the "urge" to start today. Before today, it didn't even occur to me.

So, maybe it is close at hand.....

Somewhere around where you are.

For washing, I'll start for sure around 34ish weeks.

For carseat, I'd do the same since it won't really be inconvenient for me.

I'm almost 35w with #3, and starting to get everything washed up. The carseat base won't be installed until the last minute (like taking us home from the hospital day) so that we don't have to move the other kids around before then.

Re: When do you wash and prep everything?

With DS, I had everything washed and put away and the carseat installed by 35 weeks. Pretty sure I took out some (clean) clothes and re-washed them a few times, though, when the nesting crazies kicked in.

With DD the carseat went in at 38 weeks because it was almost November and I didn't want to chance having to do it in snow. I didn't get serious about getting her clothes and diapers washed and ready until after 40 weeks.

Hehe. I'm 23 weeks and I still need to unpack my carseat to see if it's expired. I'll do it in January or February.

In January we'll move DD to her new room and then I'll start thinking about baby's room.
