Tips for Visiting a New Baby

Lil Tip: Prepare Your Bathroom For Visitors

Baby's born and mama's home from the hospital, so let the welcoming brigade begin. While her kitchen may be stocked with treats and beverages to keep guests' bellies full, the better place to maintain may be the bathroom!

Before allowing friends and family to visit with a newborn, many mamas require them to thoroughly wash up, especially during this particularly bad flu season. Fancy soaps and pretty linens may liven up the bathroom, but some anti-bacterial soap and paper towels that can be immediately thrown away are better options when it comes to preventing the spread of germs. What precautions did you take to prevent the spread of germs once your lil one arrived?

Lots of hand sanitizer!

Dad should be doing the tidying up in the bathroom. This is my opinion after trying to clean behind the toilet this morning, at 35 weeks pregnancy. I doubt I'll have the energy to do anything special other than toss a bottle of hand sanitizer at any possible visitors. The kitchen definitely won't be stocked. My food is celiac friendly, so it's too darn expensive for visitors and they wouldn't enjoy it anyway. :P

Ummm I will not be stocking my kitchen for people when they come over.. I think a newborn will be enough to deal with ! (I bring food when I visit babies :))
