I thought it would be nice if some of the second (or third or fourth) timers posted little "helpful hints" for the FTMs that were simple yet made life so much easier with a new tiny baby.
My helpful hint is: Vaseline baby's butt at EVERY diaper change. At least for a while. Our pediatrician told us to do this and it worked so well we did it for almost a year. It makes a nice barrier to keep moisture off baby's skin especially for the (hopefully) longer stretches at night and it's SO much easier to clean a poop diaper. We did this for our son and he didn't have a single incident of diaper rash until he was almost a year old.
Good luck and I wish you all short and easy labors!!!
