Last night we were watching the Bourne Ultimatum and clearly as I was watching I was thinking through if I am ready for our baby to come. What? Don't you think about this kind of stuff in the Bourne movies?! So, I am wide awake and have found some crazy stuff on the internets (as W. calls it). Here ya go:
What Does a Newborn Need?
Not sure what a newborn baby needs? Here is a checklist of the basic items parents will need once they bring their newborn home.
Nappy bin with secure lid
Newborn size nappies
Nappy rash cream
Blunt ended scissors (what the heck?!)
Baby bath with stand (optional)
Sun cover for pram
Nappy bag to use when out
Set of bottles and teats
I don't think this person shops at Target. And I wish I knew what the heck a nappy was cause we are fresh out of nappies at our house.
Now for the hospital bag recommendations I found comical:
Pillows from home (If you are a pillow snob this is understandable, but seriously...)
Water bottles for ice (are you kidding me?)
Your own wash cloths (and you don't want to use the ones provided for you because???)
Change of clothes for partner, including swim trunks for shower or pool
First off, when's the last time you saw a pool at the hospital? Second of all, who wears a swimsuit in the shower?
