Help me make a list of what I need to do!

I will be 35 weeks tomorrow. I feel like time is speeding up now that I'm at the end of my pregnancy. I feel like I need things prepared! Especially since dd came at 36/37 weeks (thank's to a stupid doctor!).

Anyways, I've just started making a list, but help me, am I forgetting anything?

Getting Ready for Jonah List:

1. Sew on new bassinet skirt (switching to boyish colors, instead of a pink skirt! )

2. Wash-
  • clothes
  • cloth diapers
  • swing cover
  • bassinet sheets
  • ......
  • .....

3. Buy a dresser (the poor kid has no where to put his clothes yet!)

4. Pack a hospital bag-
  • One for Jason- 4 days worth of clothes (just in case of emergency c-section, I'll be having a vbac!), travel toothbrush, toothpaste, deoderant, shampoo, soap....
  • One for Joelle-4 days worth of clothes, sposies (YUCK, but I'm having mercy on my family who will be helping us out!), tylanol (for teething), wipes, toys...
  • For baby Jonah- a few outfits (one of which to come home in), do I need anything else?
  • One for me: nursing pj's, clothes to come home in, brush, toothbrush, postpardom pads, nursing pads, nursing bra....???

5. Rearrange the house and our bedroom for new baby stuff (ex.- rocking chair in our room, bassinet, etc.)

6. What else??

did you already wash all the baby's new stuff he may have received? all the clothes and blankets?
if not get them in the wash
bring snacks for you and your dh to take with you, bring a camera, phonecards, extra batteries, camcorder if you have one. slippers for you so your not barefoot. i took my blowdryer for my hair and makeup
also a hairbrush/comb, extra underwear and some comfy maternity clothes to go home in

Since I just did this three weeks ago I'll throw a few things out.

prepare cameras and pack them
If son is circumcised, then you will need gauze and vaseline
you might want to use alcohol on belly button stump, I apply with a Q tip
car seat
night light or dim light for all those midnight feedings and diaper changes
get pacifiers if you use them
lasinol for cracked nipples or nipple shields
stool softeners for home, if you still need them out of hospital
diaper rash ointment, just in case you need it
We are in a massive heat wave, so when we go out I apply with my hands some cornstarch powder under the neck folds, arm pits, and leg folds to keep little one from sweating too much and getting chafe. Cornstarch is wonderful for diaper area too!

I hope this helped, I can't think of anything else.

You're already way ahead of me

I can't think of anything else not mentioned already though.

For the hospital:

list of all the phone numbers of the people you need to call after the baby is born?

if you sleep with a fan or humidifier, you may want it if you end up with a csection and have to stay longer.

I second the slippers or socks and also, maybe flipflops for the shower.

The air is really dry in the hospital, so I always had my own lotion.

Maybe pictures of your other kids
