Hello ladies! I had a really hard time packing for the hospital with my DS. I wanted to bring everything including the kitchen sink! Now with the twins I'm thinking I should pack a bit earlier, but I don't want to pack too early in case I need the stuff I pack still, kwim?
Anyway, I'll bring a few change of clothes, toiletries, etc. But is there anything anyone highly recommends I throw in my bag? This includes things for the babies. Does anyone have a link to a website that provides a good list for packing a labor bag? Is it basically the same when packing for a multiple birth??
Also...for those of you with older kids, what are your plans for when you go into labor? Our DS will be almost 3 when the babies come, and we're not sure what to do with him. Should we get his auntie to come up to the house? Should we pack him and his stuff over to my parents' house? My mom and dad live the closest, and if it's a middle of the night kind of deal, they will be on call. But hubby's mom,dad and sister are closest to the hospital, so it would be nothing for them to zip over to the hospital and grab him. Should I plan to be away for a few days??
Eek, all these things to think about!
