My husband will be deployed during the birth and this is our first. At this point, we aren't sure if he will have access to internet to view the birth, etc., but I know that I definitely want to send out a "Baby's Here" type of care package right after the birth. I'm trying to prepare everything that will be included in the package because I am going to pass the responsibility of actually putting everything in the box and mailing it to someone else. I just want him to be included and receive it ASAP after the birth.
So far, I definitely plan on including pictures and then also an index card (framed) with the baby's footprints and handprints on it. I also plan on putting the footprints and handprints on the outside of the package too. I don't want to send anything super important that might get lost (like the baby's hospital bracelet).
Does anybody have any other ideas of what could be included in this package?
Also, does anybody have any ideas of how to involve him during the birth and the first 4 months?
