Bags for kids

I just picked my hospital bag and was thinking I should also pack bags for my other 2 just in case they need to go somewhere quickly too.  We live 400 miles from our family.  We have them scheduled to come in on April 15th and stay until delivery. I'm due on the 30th. So my kids will stay with friends if he comes earlier..  Did any of you with older kids pack overnight bags for them in advance or just wing it when/if it became necessary?

I did and I already have their bags ready to go and in our truck already along with my bags. My father will be watching the older kids and for the most part they will be staying at my parents house until baby and I get to come home. It's always better to be prepared just in case.

Following! I've wondered if I should pack bags for our kiddos in case I go into labor during the night. If so they would need a change of clothes, but if it happens during then possibly something to keep then entertained until the grandparents arrive to get them..

I had a bag packed for my daughter. I packed enough for a few days, but because she is on spring break my mom offered to take her for the week.

I had my daughter pack her overnight bag with 2 days worth of stuff so she'll have everything she needs when my mom has her. Fortunately we all live close so it's no big deal for them to go back to my house if they forgot something. I definitely feel better knowing she has a bag ready though.

My husband and I were just talking about this last night.  We need to get our daughter's bag packed to stay at my parents. Luckily, they only live a few miles away, so it isn't a huge deal for then to come here to get anything we miss.  I will be having a c-section, so she will need about 4 days of clothes.
