Item Checklist for Bringing Your Newborn Home
Keep the carseat in the car unless your caregiver asks you to bring it inside. Call 1-800-227-2358 for more carseat information.
This can be used to keep baby calm during travel.
Bring a nail file to prevent baby from scratching his or her soft skin with jagged nails.
Comfy and non-restrictive “going home” outfit
This could be a onesie and pants, or any other non-restrictive clothing item.
Sweater, bunting, or warm blanket
These items can help to keep baby warm during travel in cooler weather.
