Phew!!! What a relief, John! Amber really took care of the necessities! That's our girl!
Here's just some additional things, that you may find good to keep on-hand:
*A bottle of baby Motrin (for fevers, colds, etc...it comes in drops, usually).
*A baby ear thermometer.
*A baby suction ball (to unstuff stuffy noses)
*Some Desitin diaper rash cream...you just never know when a rash will crop up!
*Some Johnson & Johnson Head-To-Toe body wash (shampoo and baby bath in one...)
*Baby terrycloth washcloths...they're softer than normal washcloths...good for that first baby bath.
*Cotton balls for keeping that healing umbilical cord dry and clean.
*The book, "What to Expect the First Year." Great guide!!!
*A bathtub thing for her to lay in...unless you just hold her and do her in the sink...sometimes that's the easiest!
*A nice musical mobile to hang over her crib or bassinet...very soothing, and stimulating to newborns!
*A mechanical swing...I don't know how people survive without these, quite honestly. Keeps Kaelyn entertained and safe while you are running amuck trying to pick up the house, feed kitties, etc.
These are just some items, off the top of my head. They are now making Preemie diapers, but at 5 lbs. (which for a preemie, is a BIG baby), she probably will fit into smaller regular diapers.
Please let us know if you need help with any of the above items, and we'd be happy to put our heads together, and figure out how to send some stuff your way.
