LOL, i packed 4 outfits with my son… he never wore any… the hosp gave him a out fit every day he was there, and then he went home in there outfit. so he never even wore his “going home” outfit
with this baby, i will take 1 sleeper outfit and a warm blanket as it will be very cold when shes born
They kept me in the hospital for 24 hours after my son was born . They do have clothes and hats there, but I brought 3 outfits and one hat. I only used the take-home outfit. If you’re planning on staying longer then bring 3 and someone can always bring you more if you need them.
All the baby needs is one outfit to go home in. The hospitals in the US provide everything the baby will need until you are ready to go home. If your baby is cold they can put another blanket on your baby.
My hospital let you adjust the temp in your room, but either way they did give us a stack of probably 10 blankets in the closet of the room and we used 2 to swaddle our daughter to keep her warm.
You only need an outfit to take him home in. The hospital provides clothing, diapers, blankets. You can choose to bring your own clothing for him to wear. Figure 1-2 a day. If all goes well he’ll only be there 3 days – bring 5. One hat.
Like I said, you don’t really need to pack anything for him except stuff to bring him home in. The more you pack the more you have to take with you, keep track of, and then bring home. If he messes his clothing the hospital won’t launder it for you – so you’ll have to take home old-dirty clothes. OR the hospital will mistake your outfit for one of theirs and you’ll lose it.
With both of my boys I brought two outfits (1 for pictures and 1 to go home in) the hospital will provide hats, blankets, and shirts while you are there.
I packed one footsie pajama and than also 2 pairs of baby pants and 3 onesies, 1 baby hat, and 1 pair of socks and 1 pair of baby shoes/booties, and also a baby blanket.
I packed a few onesies and pants because they take your babys photos at the hospital for there first photo and u want something cute
I took clothes just for the newborn pictures and going home outfit. I had a friend that brought me a big bag of clothes while I was in the hospital so I had more than enough. They give you little shirts and blankets, but it’s always nice to see them in their cute little outfits!
we packed 5 onsies to wear under the 5 sleepers i packed and 1 pair of socks for the outfit shes comming home in and a blanket sleeper and 1 blanket and booties just in case. the sleepers are for the hospital and i packed her outfit wich is a onsie and pants with the booties and then im wrapping her in the sleeper blanket for home. but we packed a snowsuit to just in case since its been rather cold lately
If you’re in the U.S. the hospital provides all that baby needs. You just need to pack a going-home outfit.
My lil boy is now 5 months old but i brung him 4 onesies and the outfit he had his pictures made in.we kept him wrapped up so he never got cold…i didnt brang any hats.the hospital give me one and one of the nurses bought him a Auburn hat from the gift shop.which i thanked her a billion times cause she didnt have to spend her own money on it.if ur gonna use a paci make sure to brang ur own my lil boy refused to suck the one they gave him.
Edit:forgot to add Baby hand mittens.they came in handy my lil boy loved to play with his face and so did his nails.lol.

If your other child had the virus, then it's very likely that the baby has it too. You can use pedialyte or any electrolyte solution to keep the baby from getting dehydrated. Try putting some in a medicine dropper and giving it every minutes when he's awake. Infant tylenol will help with the fever and any pain he's in. Call your doctor for the correct dosage. Usually if the baby is weaned, you should stay away from milk for a day or two. If he's breastfed, you can usually continue as normal. Dry snacks and bananas can help with diarrhea if that happens. If he still has a fever on Tylenol or it lasts more than a day or two I'd take him to the doctor.Source(s): Mommy to year old. isn't a fever. It doesn't even warrant medication.

Answers Favorite Answer*Dairy can actually 'plug up' a child more. So if she has a lot of yogurt or cheese frequently,I'd cut some of that out of her diet for now. Other than that. Increase the amount of FRUIT you're giving her. There is far more fiber in the flesh and peel of fruits than in juice. Juice in all honesty is flavored sugar water with vitamin c. That is unless you fresh squeeze all of the juice you give her. And that is not the easiest for most of us who are busy! Soft fruits high in Fiber :-Apples-Avocado-Bananas (this one surprises most people)-Berries ; strawberries,raspberries,blueberries etc-Dried fruits ; Figs, Raisins, Apricots, Dates, etc.-Oranges-Pears-Prunes (actually at the bottom of the 'highest fiber fruits' list)yes more liquids, try a small amount of prune juice, please skip suppositories, any un-needed medications are not good for young children / babies, they can cause harm in the long run.
