Ready? Go! ENJOY!

What to pack for baby?

Don't forget:

*The essentials: food, diapers (take a few more than you think you'll need…better *safe* than sorry!), changing pad, baby wipes, bib, bottles and/or sippy cup, pacifiers (always have an extra), and an extra outfit.

*The preferences: favorite blanket, soft toy, and a few new *tricks* (this is the new toy or an existing book or toy that hasn't made an appearance in a while).

*The “back-ups”: These are the items you probably won't need, but should have “just in case:” fever reducer/pain reliever and an extra shirt for YOU.

*And, after you have all that, you'll also need to ensure you've packed up your patience, a great sense of humor, flexibility, and your perspective about what this time is really about for you and your family.

Cheers!
