Hurricane baby checklist

Saturday, August 30th, 2008

If the authorities are evacuating your city, please get your bags ready.  Don’t wait.  This storm is going to be a big one.  I have pulled together a list of things for you to take with you if you have a baby.  There is also more detailed information on preparing for a disaster if you are caring for an infant on our site. 

I know you are watching the news as anxiously as I am, probably even more so.

If you have any questions or concerns, leave me a comment.  I’ll be watching for it.

Packing Checklist

Several pacifiers to help soothe your baby.

  • Diapers (you will need about 70 a week for an infant).
  • A baby blanket.
  • A baby carrier because there may not be a crib or bassinet for your baby once you arrive at your destination.
  • Extra clothes for your baby because these may be hard to find.
  • It can be loud in shelters and hospitals. Bring anything that could help soothe you and your baby.
  • Food for your baby.
  • Hand sanitizer.
  • Rectal thermometer and lubricant.
  • Non-aspirin liquid pain reliever
  • Car seat

Take care.  Be safe.
