Have you read the Part 1 of our baby birth prep list?
If you haven’t, check it out here:
Needless to say, here is a list of things to do before your baby is born.
6. Prepare Freezer Meals
Preparing freezer meals can be fun because it may take one day or a few days and when you want to keep yourself busy. By doing this, it can distract you for a while and a little exercise. Making freezer meals is nice especially when your family have gone back home and only left you and your husband. It is a good choice considering after you have your baby.
7. Breast Pump
Having a breast pump is nice since you won’t be able to nurse your baby when the baby decided to sleep through the night.
If not, you will wake up in the middle of the night feeling puffed-up and crying in pain.
Your breast will turn to two rock-hard lumps on your chest.
Getting a breast pump would also help you in the long run especially if you are a working mom.
8. Get A Pedicure
It sounds ridiculous, but you will be taking a lot of pictures while holding your baby.
It’s nice to have a little bit of glam once in a while to make you happy!
Plus, once your baby is born, you would not have much time to paint your nails.
This is the time to pamper yourself with something you always did or always wanted to.
9. Buy Some “In-Between” Clothes
You can go buy some “in-between” clothes that you can wear until you fit back into your regular clothes.
As much as you want to be fit again after delivery, it will not happen immediately.
It will help you emotionally.
It takes time!
So, before you have your baby, just get a pair or two loose-fitting pants and tops.
10. Talk To The Healthcare Provider
Talk to the healthcare worker about your plan to breastfeed your baby.
Don’t worry! They have all ears on you.
11. Photographer For Your Baby
The hospital may have contracts with baby photographer and they will come to your rooms while you are there and take pictures.
You can check whether your hospital has something like this and if don’t, you can try to look for a newborn photographer.
It is nice to plan and set everything up.
You would not want to stress about the baby photographer after they are born.
But of course, all these are optional..
We only want the best for you and your baby, here’s wishing you a smooth delivery, mommy!
