RIT DYE:If you use 1/4 cup salt and 1/4 cup white vinegar the first wash, it will set the colors so they won’t fade or bleed during follow up washes. You can do this with red shirts, and new jeans as well. I usually dye several things (usually onsies) the same color and then wash each color on an extra small load by themselves for the first wash
Mommy Hospital Bag--this is the best list I've seen. (as a labor nurseI've seen LOTS of families come in with either WAY TOO much crap, or things they don't have that I feel I would want.) This list seems about perfect!
