The birth of a child is one of the most anticipated events in the family, but no less important is the day the young mother is discharged from the hospital. Just think, your child will cross the threshold of your house for the first time. The young dad will have to try a lot to ensure a worthy meeting with the heir and his mother.
The desire of the young father to arrange the meeting of his wife from the hospital as solemnly as possible is understandable, because he had been waiting for this day for so long. But before starting a lavish holiday, ask your wife if she needs solemnity at all. Most young mothers feel unprepared for parades and limousines, and even more so for receiving guests. Yes, and the baby is unlikely to benefit from a big celebration. It is better to celebrate the day of discharge in a quiet and family-like manner, and invite the guests when the new life slowly goes into its own rut.
In any case, the baby should come to the cleanest apartment possible. Just do not rush to extremes and try to make repairs in a hurry, it is enough to arrange a thorough cleaning of all rooms and the nursery in particular. Try not to abuse chemicals when cleaning. Especially avoid strong-smelling detergents, take better warm water with ordinary soap dissolved in it. Dust off surfaces, wipe cabinets and shelves, remove dishes, mop floors, and take out trash.
If your family is not subject to superstition, then you probably managed to prepare all the necessary things and items for the baby. If not, then you have a colossal shopping race with a huge list. Do not hesitate to call your spouse to clarify the details of purchases, it is better to spend 5 minutes on one phone call than to find out later that you bought absolutely the wrong thing. When all the items are purchased, do not forget to visit another store. Namely, a supermarket.
In the first weeks of staying at home with the baby, a young mother will not be up to kitchen worries, but you will need to eat everything. Collect more semi-finished products, based on their taste and usefulness, fill the refrigerator to the maximum with dairy products, fruits, vegetables.
On the day of discharge, take clothes for the baby and mother, a car seat, documents, flowers and an accompanying person with a video camera or camera. You will hardly have the time and opportunity to take good shots. Today you yourself, along with your wife and child, will play the main role. Try to arrive at the hospital a little early, or at least on time. Believe me, there is no sweeter minute than waiting for the moment when the door finally opens and two of your most beloved people on the planet will come out on the doorstep.
