Tara said this, but make-up! Nothing like having a baby to make you look and feel like crap at a time when it feel like the paparazzi just entered your room.

For FTMs - there are sleepers for babies that have little hand covers that fold over. This is bc the baby is born with sharp little finger nails and they scratch their own faces as they learn to control their hands. Baby socks over the hands also works. So even if you are in a warm climate, bring baby socks!!!!

OH and also, FTMs ask about nail polish. Most hospitals request no finger nail polish on Mom to check you color. Toe nail polish is usually ok. And with all that is going on "down there" during that time, a little nail color can go a long way to make you feel human! lol.
