  • Around 8 months. I Washed everything, set things up, prepared for baby to come, put together diaper bag, hospital stay bags, etc...

  • First one I was about 6 months when we put the crib up and I put everything in it, then I washed it all again at 40 weeks (delivered at 41) because I knew it got dusty from just sitting there! With the second we waited until the night before I was induced (very hard/complicated pregnancy).

  • 6 months with my first, mainly because I was overly excited. 7.5 months with my second because I'm always worried that I'll go into premature labor and nothing will be ready for the baby. I'm pregnant with my 3rd now and will have the bed set up at around 8 months.

  • oh about 39 weeks i'd say. but then we didn't even use it until he was a few months old. he slept in a bassi in our room. also we only used sheets, didn't use bumpers or get a quilt set or anything.

  • Last minute. Didn't use it right away anyway. Didn't have a "nursery".

  • #1- while in labor before going to the hospital.
    #2- before she came home from the hospital (preemie, 2 mos early).
    #3- before she came home from the hospital (preemie, 3 mos and 1 week early)

  • My twins were 3 months old before one crib was set up and they shared it. They were around 5-6 months before the second one was. I'm such a procrastinator.
