Tips Tuesday!

Approaching D-Day? Most people know that moms need to pack a "delivery bag" in preparation for the hospital stay but often times the dad's packing list goes forgotten. The dad is often part of the action and needs to be prepared if he is going to be present for D-Day. What's an expectant father to do to help make the day go as smoothly as possible? Here are some tips to get the big guy ready:

*Call the hospital in advance and plot out the shortest route from your home (make sure your hubby has tried this route before because most likely he will be the driver)

*Check the hospital hours for visiting, the cafeteria schedule (not delicious, but he will be hungry), parking availability and other services available for the family.

*Make sure he packs his basic toiletries such as deodorant, toothbrush/paste, shampoo etc. There will be facilities for him to use to stay fresh.

*Have him bring his comfy clothes and pjs because most likely he will be sleeping over

*Snacks galore

* If you are preparing for a c-section, you might have to stay in the hospital for a few days so make sure your hubby packs enough clothing for the duration of the stay or worse comes to worse, he can always run home...

* Camera, video camera or whatever else you want to make sure you capture the moment

* Music for the labor and something to play it on

*Books, puzzles, newspapers, books to keep you occupied...

Hope these tips are helpful! Have a wonderful day:)
