Your hospital bag for baby: Don't forget this item!

Baby will be here soon and you've diligently packed all of the essentials for your hospital stay - clothes for mom & baby, snacks, a camera, toiletries.

But here's one thing you definitely don't want to forget - your Dear Mom Journal!

The perfect first journal entry when baby arrives is his or her little handprint or footprint. Did you know that delivery nurses are pros at this? Many times they'll stamp those little digits on some paper they provide, so ask them to do it in your journal instead. 

Some hospitals will provide the ink-less stamping kits for this, but you may want to bring your own just in case. I recommend these.

You've got this, mama!
