My head can't quite grasp what's to come in the next days/weeks/months/years. To describe it as overwhelming feels like an understatement. But people have been doing this for years, right....so why sweat it?
I got all of Persephone's clothes, burp cloths, socks, blankets...etc washed this weekend. I was also able to wash the cloth parts of the swing and bouncer we were given. I probably could have just wiped them down or hand washed them, but it was much easier to just toss it all in the washing machine and let them get beat around for a few minutes. For her we're all set...we have diapers/wipes/clothes/bath supplies/bassinet/pack n' play all ready to go. The last thing I need are crib sheets, ha ha, thank goodness those are easy to pick up.
I obviously need to pack my hospital bag as well. I've read a list of items you should bring, but thought I would ask my fellow bloggers:
-What were your essential must-have's when you went into the hospital?
-Were there any items no one ever suggested, but you definitely needed? (even embarassing ones)
-Any items you brought that weren't necessary?
-What type of clothing did you bring for yourself for post-delivery?
I'm all ears! Or in this case eyes....
