So I know most of this pregnancy has been about me and this kid...but what about Dad? He is going to be spending just as much time at the hospital as me. I actually told him since we don't have a kid waiting at home for us, and the hospital is 30 minutes from our house, I would hope he would choose to stay at the hospital with the baby and me. Lets just say I more than hope. I may or may not have politely demanded :)
With that being said, what should the dad pack? I look up stuff online and these lists are a little outdated. For example- change for the payphone to call friends and family to tell them the good news. Can anyone tell me the last time they have even seen a payphone? Or the list of people to call and their numbers. Yep, we got that. It is called a cell phone. I also reminded Michael he needs to be packed with a bag ahead of time considering he may or may not have to leave work- and his work is an hour away. Knowing my husband he will want to stop and shower, pack, etc...thus missing the entire birth due to the face he is quite putzy. So what are your suggestions for Dads in the hospital. What are their must haves? What did you wish you would have packed and didn't for your husband?
