Baby Checklist. Newborn
1. My baby got Maisie’s first vaccination — a dose of Hepatitis B that’s given at birth. Shots are scary, but my newborn getting sick would be even scarier! I also went ahead and scheduled her (name}’s first checkup with our pediatrician.
2. Who knew poop would ever be so interesting? I’m counting my baby’s diapers to make sure Maisie has at least 6 wet ones and 3 dirty ones every 24 hours.
3. I’m even hungrier now than I was when I was pregnant! Breastfeeding takes a lot of out of me — literally. I need 300-500 extra calories if I’m breastfeeding, so I’m eating at least 2,000 calories every day.

4. The big day is finally here — we’re ready to bring baby home! I can’t wait to start using all the adorable baby stuff in our nursery! I washed all the baby clothes and bedding with a hypoallergenic detergent that’s designed not to irritate baby’s sensitive skin.
5. I thought disposable underwear sounded gross, but this hospital underwear is actually pretty practical. I’ve bought some disposable underwear of my own and some extra-long pads to protect me during postpartum bleeding.
6. My belly is pretty flabby still, but I know that’s normal! I bought a postpartum support belt or wrap to support my belly as I’m healing. If I had a C-section, I’ve also bought some scar healing cream with vitamin E.
7. If I plan to bottle feed, then I’ve stocked up on the right equipment: small 4 oz bottles and stage 1 nipples. I’ve also got a bottle brush to keep my bottles clean.

We are always talking about how we hope our birth will go or how our birth went. But do you even know how you were born?
