This weekend is all about getting ready for the baby.
We’re picking up the components to convert the crib into a cosleeper. This involves bed lifts, high density foam, and bungee cords. Expect a full post later.
We’re washing and sorting through all of the newborn and 0-3 month sized clothes that we have leftover from when the Grasshopper was a baby. We’re determining if we need to purchase any additional small items. I think that aside from a few packs of onesies, we’ve got plenty.
I am trying to convince my husband to please go ahead and install the carseats already in case we run into a situation where they don’t both fit. If that happens, I’m not sure what we’ll do. He doesn’t seem to understand that getting this done is, for me, a biological imperative at this point.
I’m gathering the odds and ends that we’ll be packing into the bin to take to the birth center: the birth kit, clothing for the baby and me, and various other items like depends, dermaplast, aromatherapy kit, etc.
The nursing pillow covers are clean and I’ve put them on their pillows. The drawers in my bedroom that I will be dedicating to the baby have been emptied and are ready to receive clothes, diapers, and blankets. My nightstand has been emptied and is ready to become a temporary changing table.
And I’m feeling very satisfied sitting here listening to the washer wash its load of baby sheets, swaddling blankets, and breast pads, and the dryer dry its load of prefold diaper inserts for me to use as heavy-flow pads for my postpartum bleeding.
Happy Labor Day weekend everyone!
