What types of things do you take when your LO is admitted? For Your child to do and for you to do when they're sleeping?

***********************************

Ava's pulmonologist gave me the best advice. He told me to pack a small bag with a change of clothes, trial size soap, shampoo/cond, toothpaste/brush and a book, etc... Leave it on my car at all times b/c you just never know when they'll get admitted. I recently loaded my ipod with a few movies I like and keep it in my purse too for when she's sleeping at night.

I take his boppy, clothes from home (sometimes he can wear his own clothes), rattles
I take magazines, a deck of cards, my planner

I usually sleep when he does.

I have one in my hall closet at all times.

I take my laptop, magazines for both Kyle and I (he loves the Nick Jr one). Books for him, and we just got him the new Crayola Glow writer or something like that, last time he was in the hospital. And DVDs for him, just in case there's nothing on. I try to make his bed comfortable - and give him options since he can't get out.

But over the years his needs have changed - from boppy and travel swing, to blocks and ring toys, on to where we are now.

I agree with the bag in the car. we always keep a bag in the van a well, its so true, you just never know when a routine visit turns into an admission. It has clothes for him and a clean shirt for me. A couple books for him, and a book for me. We arent far from the childrens here so my bag is just to get us through the couple hours until someone else comes to relieve me or brings me more stuff.

honestly, I bring nothing because usually when we go he's too sick to feel up to doing anything and when he does feel better they keep him entertained and fully loaded with toys. Plus with the new Anaheim Ducks Wingm, there are too many cool things to do on unit...

Nothing. We don't live that far, so DH or I can always run home to pick up a few things. We don't even bother with toys for Milo. He prefers to play with the stethoscopes, tape, tubing, etc.

If we know ahead of time, we just bring a few toiletries, change of clothes for us, and a couple of toys for Milo (which he still doesn't play with, but we would feel weird not having them-fear of judgment, I guess!).
