A JOURNEY IN RUNNING, LIVING, LAUGHING AND LOVING

The hospital baby binder you will absolutely want to make!

Saturday, January 17, 2015

Every once in a while, you find a kindred spirit. I have many, and one of them is my coworker Ashley. She is my organization inspiration! So, I was thrilled when Ashley gave me a baby binder as part of my baby shower gift! 

As any new parent will tell you, you're going to be exhausted in the beginning. The hospital stay will be a blur. The first few months will be extreme sleep deprivation. And, you're arguably going to be gathering a ton of important paperwork and information that you'll need organized (for the doctor) or want organized (for the baby book). But rarely is any new parent capable of doing this right away. 

Enter the baby binder! Ashley put together this AWESOME accordion baby binder so that we can keep it all straight in the days and weeks after Baby P is born.  
Each section is clearly labeled, and now, I share those sections with you!
  • Birth certificate and Social Security card
  • Pediatrician visits
  • Immunization records
  • Other health records
  • Insurance paperwork
  • Parenting articles/pamphlets
  • Keepsakes
  • Milestones
  • Receipts/Warranties
  • Manuals
  • Nursing/Feeding information
  • Miscellaneous 
I feel like this binder is absolutely genius, because I know there are going to be so many things to organize and that I would probably end up shoving it all in my purse or a pocket or anywhere I can stuff it, and later I would be hard pressed to locate it. This way, I can organize all of our necessary items for our baby and then I can place them where they need to be later down the line. 

Are you expecting, or do you know someone who is? Make this binder right now! It's an amazing gift to yourself or to give to others, and I honestly plan to prepare them for everyone I know who's having a baby (hint hint, expecting friends!)! Thanks, Ashley! I already know this is going to come in SO handy!
