The Ultimate Baby Gift: Sick Baby Survival Kit

From weeSpring’s guide to practical gift giving: survival kits for almost every new-baby-need.  We pulled these items from our weeLists, which are weeSpring parents’ own individual lists of what got them through all of the different ages and stages.

Even the most cool-as-a-cucumber parents tend to get a little panicked when their little one has her first cold, especially if there’s a fever involved. (We’re pretty sure temperature-taking on a newborn is more traumatic for us than for them.)  Make sure they have everything on hand before they realize junior is a little sniffly and warm.
