Baby Book Suggestions

I'm on the countdown now and everything is in place, just waiting. The one thing I haven't gotten yet is a baby book. To be honest I haven't really looked that hard because I do not like all the Disney cartoon books or any other type of characters. I'm looking for a book that is more contemporary/modern with design. Many friends have informed me baby books have changed a lot over the years. Side note I'm not going to be scrapbooking with all the little add ons and different papers. Some of the books are already assembled just add photos, this is right up my alley.

So any suggestions on what baby books you have used for your little ones?

Baby Planner, Would you use one?

Have you heard of Baby Planners? If you are like me the answer is NO. I understand there is a lot to plan, buy, and put together before your little one arrives, but needing a baby planner.
So I was a little skeptical until I started thinking about how it is difficult to decide which nursery furniture, car seat, stroller, high chair, bouncy seat, swing, baby tub, monitor, breast pump, diaper bag, and bedding is best. Friends, family, and bloggers are always great resources for advice on what worked best for their baby. Some may even go to Consumer Reports to get the professionals advice.

So now we have the job of a baby planner....NBPA (National Baby Planner Association)

I would have probably looked at their advice earlier, a little too late now. For any newly pregnant Mommies you may want to check them out.

Hospital Attire

Question for all the Mom's out there....when you had your baby what did you wear in the hospital? I'm getting mixed advice from some of my friends. Some say nightgowns are the way to go due to ease of nursing and you can pull it up while you are laying in bed. Others say they didn't wear PJ's while they were there but more lounge clothes.

I'm usually not a nightgown kind of a girl, personally I get too tangled up in them while I'm sleeping.

Thoughts much appreciate.....oh and while you are sharing any must haves that I should have in my hospital bag?
