Getting ready for baby #2

Let's talk about packing the OTHER hospital bag! My best tip to get ready for baby #2 is by making a special hospital bag for the older sibling!! We packed a little bag for him to bring to the hospital when he came to meet our new baby. It had a set of stacking blocks, a new notebook & markers for coloring, a book, some stickers, and a book (Laugh Out Loud Baby). We also included a little snack for him to nibble on; it doesn't need to be a sweet treat- we did olives and salami, something that would last in his belly. After he was done checking out the baby and moving my hospital bed up & down, he opened up his bag and was able to just hang out while the rest of us ooh-ed and ahh-ed over the baby.
