Here's a quick visual to help remember that there is a kid in the car. It requires: a small brightly colored doll, wide ribbon or other material, and a clothing sharpie. See more about this topic: http://www.parents.com/baby/safety/car/danger-of-hot-car-for-children/
For baby #2 I packed these things for the hospital: a stiff pillow for propping; sleeping bras; a comfy dress that worked for nursing and pictures (this made me feel much better after the frump of pregnancy and hospital gowns); and a Boppy. All of this in bag #2 - kept in the car until needed. The list is from http://greatexpectationsebook.com. I didn't take the tea with me -- but I had it on hand at home. Best advice I got? Tell the hospital that you want lactation help when you arrive…
I submitted this idea to Parent's magazine for the It Worked For Me column (http://www.parents.com/parenting/it-worked-for-me/quick-sweep). Everyone should have a rake that they keep along side their toys. The box is a sweater box from the Container Store. I love these boxes: they are big, portable, clear, stackable, and can be repurposed in an amazing variety of ways. #organizedhappy
@Who What Wear - Clear plastic boxes with lids that create a tight seal between outside air and the contents within are ideal because they’ll protect your knits and you can see what’s inside. Shop It: The Container Store Sweater Boxes ($6-$10)
I was going to make cascarones, but the thought of confetti everywhere made me nauseous. So I just made empty eggs. rather than use air to blow the yolks out, I used a chopstick to break the yolk and empty the eggs. I had two bowls to wash the eggs: first in cold, then in warm. I let them dry for a day. My son is only four, so we let him choose two colors to dye the eggs to keep it simple. Overall not too bad of a craft..
