Emergency Contact Info

Up until last week when my husband watched James alone overnight (!!!), I had only been apart from my sweet baby for less than three total hours since he was born since he was conceived. 

The first one hour period was when he was 10 days old and I had a 103 degree fever (mastitis) and needed to go to the doctors.  Needless to say I was so exhausted and delirious I hardly remembered the baby free outing.

The second time I left him was to do a quick run to the drug store for more diapers.  And I say quick because when you compare it to the extra time needed to get a baby into his car seat, into car, out of car, into stroller and finally into the store - it truly was a breeze.

And the third time was to go to the gym 2 blocks away for the first time post partum. 

All three outings were local and my husband LOVED the extra one-on-one time he got to spend with James!  I had zero concerns leaving our baby with him, it was me that I was concerned about!!!  I didn't want to be away from my baby for a minute!

But when my bi-annual Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse sale shopping trip with my sisters (a tradition that started with my Mom) / Nate's first overnight with James was approaching, I realized that I should start putting an emergency contact list together.  Not just for him, but I really should have these numbers readily available in case something were to happen when I am home alone with the baby...which is pretty much every day!  And once we're comfortable enough to have a babysitter, this is a must have for the house! 

Well, good old Pinhole Press just wouldn't let me type up a list and tape it to the fridge...they had to make this adorable photo magnet...and I just couldn't resist!

I used another cute shot from James' newborn photo shoot and customized it to include his birth date so a caretaker and / or medical responder would know EXACTLY how old (or should I say young) he is.  This would also be a great place to indicate other important information like food or drug allergies!!

I think this would make a cute stocking stuffer for new parents, don't ya think?

Just another one of my recent Pinhole Press creations...and yes, there are more to come!

P.S. Did I mention how much fun Nate and James had when Mommy was away?!  :)  I love my boys!
