I think I will bring cardstock! Thanks!
Do they do hand prints too? (sorry if that is a dumb question...)
I know this won't help but we are using the baby book.
I would like the hospital to put his footprints in a baby memory book I'm bringing. My MIL got my husband a tee shirt that says Kinsler's Dad on it and she said the hospital will put hand or footprints on it too. Also the book One The Day You Were Born is $5 at Kohl's right now.
My Grandma got us something similar to this for Christmas:
Its a hanging frame and it came with ink to do at home. I thought it was a really good idea. Our baby book has a spot for he hand and footprint so I figured I would use the ink pad and do it in the book as well.
talitha712:We're bringing some cardstock. This was recommended by the nurse who taught our L&D classes. She said that if you do the prints directly in the baby book or something and LO scrunches up their foot or moves suddenly, you probably won't get a good, clear footprint. Bringing cardstock lets you try as many times as you want until you get a print you're satisfied with and that looks like a footprint instead of a blob
Exactly this. I'm using acid-free white cardstock.
