Is your home prepared for the time you will spend in the hospital?
Better yet, is everything in place for a comfortable time in the home for a few weeks after leaving the hospital? Having your home stocked for baby and family is a good way to give yourself enough time to transition to being a new mom. This home stock list includes things for you, baby, other children, and pets. There may even be a few things thrown in that dad would love to have.
