Going Home From the Hospital in Style!
No need for messy hair and hospital issue striped blankets. Get styling for your first trip home with baby!
Will there be a new bundle of joy in your life soon? Coming home from the hospital is a special moment that family and friends will want to be a part of, and to commemorate in photos and videos. There are a few ways you can make sure your homecoming goes off without a hitch. Check out these tips to make it a day to remember forevermore.
Make Sure Mom is Ready
While no woman feels like a covergirl in the hours or days after giving birth, you can fake it for the cameras that are sure to be waiting for your arrival with baby. And while he or she is the real focus, as Mom, you’re bound to be in most of the pictures too! Get ready by having a few things in your hospital bag, for the trip home:
- A hairbrush and elastic
- Dry shampoo
- Lip gloss
- Tinted moisturizer or BB cream
- A loose fitting, comfortable outfit for you
You don’t have to wear a dress like the Princess of Cambridge but a comfortable, flowing outfit will keep you cool and comfortable while you answer a thousand questions and pose for another picture.
Make Sure the House is Ready
This is where your spouse comes in! If you don’t have a regular cleaning service that comes in, get one just this once or ask your spouse to take care of it. No one expects your home to be spick and span: you were growing a human up until that moment, after all! But you don’t want three day old dishes in the sink and laundry all over the dining room table when Aunt Ida arrives with her famous bundt cake!
Make Sure the Car is Ready
You can’t come home from the hospital without a properly installed rear facing car seat, so make sure that it is in place weeks before your due date! Many hospitals will check to make sure you’re equipped, even if you’re taking a taxi home, so don’t forget this all important piece of baby equipment.
Have your pre-packed diaper bag at the ready too. Depending on how long the ride is from the hospital, you might need some cloths, a blanket, an extra soother and possibly a change of diaper too!
Make sure Baby is Ready
When everything else is done and you’re ready to come home, you can let your new bundle steal the show by showing them off wearing a classic, heirloom quality Feltman Brothers outfit.
From the Take Me Home Gown collection to top picks from the Pima Cotton line, Feltman Brothers offers a wide selection of high quality, elegant baby fashions that will help your little tot look extra adorable in all the family photos.
