Shit to do TWO MONTHS before your due date:

healthy eating, pregnancy and people concept - pregnant woman co

Do the ‘Once a Month Cooking’ Prep

Start cooking Loads of Extra Meals for the Freezer.  Our pick: Grab a copy of ‘Once a Month Cooking’. Because trust me, you won’t feel like cooking in the first six weeks after baby comes home from the hospital.

Start Putting Nursery Furniture Together

Start setting up the cot and change-table in the nursery. Grab a rug and start on the decorating.

Do a Test Run

Do a test run trip to the hospital with your partner.  Start taking notice of busy times, road closures etc.  Have a route planned.

Put Important Phone Numbers on the Fridge

Have the Hospital, Doctor and Gyno’s phone number up on your fridge.

Buy up Useables

Start buying baby shampoo, disposable nappies, breast pads, nipple cream, sanitary pads etc. Stock up.

Or Start Grabbing Some Modern Cloth Nappies

If you are planning on using Modern Cloth Nappies, now is the time to start grabbing a few nappies at a time so you have plenty when baby comes along.  If you are not sure on what type to use, you can always grab samples to try nappies before you invest a lot of money in them.

Get your Other Children a Gift from Baby

Organise a gift for any children you have already to make the birth special for them.

Hold the Baby Practice

If your baby has older siblings, buy a life-sized doll and do some practice at holding the baby.
