Packing your hospital bags before baby comes

(HealthDay News) -- When you're packing your bags before the birth of your baby, don't forget to pack essentials for the new arrival.

Consider this advice about what to bring for baby:

  • an undershirt
  • a sweater set, stretch suit or some other outfit
  • something to keep the feet warm, such as a pair of booties or socks
  • a receiving blanket. If the weather is cold, bring a heavy blanket.
  • a package of wipes and diapers
  • an infant car seat that is properly installed in your vehicle.
