Almost all dads approach the question of how and in what to take the child from the hospital very responsibly. It is the newly minted fathers who experience tremendous excitement and anxiety about this. After all, they will have a meeting with a new family member. And such a solemn event will leave few people indifferent.
Of course, many women prepare all things in advance for discharge, not hoping for a future dad. But it's true, men are a little absent-minded in this matter and at the most necessary moment can simply forget the necessary hat or socks. But if your spouse is superstitious, and therefore has not acquired anything for the future crumbs, ask her in advance to write you a list of necessary things.
It's good if you have a mom or a sister. With them, you can safely go to the children's goods store and buy everything you need for discharge. By tradition, babies are discharged wrapped in a blanket and tied with a ribbon. In addition, you will need diapers (1-2 pieces), a vest, a bonnet, romper suit, and a warm suit. Of course, you need to be guided by the weather, in the heat you may not need a blanket, but in the cold it will not be superfluous to have a woolen blanket and a warm hat.
The option with a blanket is suitable if you carry the baby home in your arms after discharge. If you are going to travel with a newborn, be sure to take care of the presence of a car seat for babies in the car. Please note that it must be designed to transport children from birth. Never rely on the driver's experience or low speed. One hard braking can cost your baby's life and health.
When you check out, do not forget about flowers for your wife, as well as about gratitude for doctors and nurses in the form of cake, sweets and champagne. Of course, the “ransom” for a crumb will depend on the thickness of the wallet and your desires.
Specialists in photo and video filming can be invited to be discharged from the hospital, then the memory of such a solemn moment will be preserved for many years.
