Baby Vomit Combat Kit Checklist

___ Lots of wipes, tissues, and burping bibs or cloths.

___ One or two changes of clothing for baby.

___ An extra T-shirt for yourself (or be sure to dress in layers).

___ A plastic bag to hold all soiled laundry items.

___ A bottle of water -- for you to guzzle when you're nervous and sweating.

___ A small pocket mirror to make sure none has landed in your hair -- baby also can play with it when you change him for the umpteenth time.

___ A blanket or towel to double as a wrap for baby when all his clean clothes are gone.

___ A vanilla-based spritzer or scent so you can blame that sickly sweet smell on your new perfume.
