Baby MEDBASICS® - A Must Have For All Parents

work at home moms

Most people are never more nervous than when you take your first newborn home from the hospital. You have a baby, they send you home from the hospital and you are on your own. My husband were preparing to take our son home for the very first time and we were like, "can you believe they are letting us leave with him? what do we know?" Then when we got him in the house, we both looked at each other and said, "now what." Eventually like all parents we figured it out and did a lot of reading. I used to carry a teeny, tiny emergency book in my diaper bag. It was free with something and really couldn't have helped me if something did happen, but I felt better knowing I had it.

That was 8 years ago and I am happy to report all is well however, I would have loved to have something like the Baby MEDBASICS® Emergency Action Steps At Your Finger Tips sized right book. The book measures smaller than my hand and only about 2 inches thick but, it packs a punch. Everything you need to know is inside these perfect, colorful, organized reference guide.
