What if this was a swap plus baby shower, like the last one?
I'm all for that idea! (The baby shower part of the last one was just as fun as the actual swap part)
What we did when DS made his grand appearance a month early (Two days before the baby shower!) is prioritized everything - what needed to be done before we got home, what could wait a week, what could wait a month. He was almost a month old before we baby-proofed, and 3 months when we put the crib together, but we made sure to have a bassinet and diapers ready straight away. If you're breastfeeding, the only things you really need for the first month are a breast pump and milk storage, a bassinet, diapers, diaper rash cream (I suggest Boudreaux's Butt Paste - it worked wonders on DS) a couple of blankets, and 8 outfits or so (should last 2-3 days to allow for laundry). The rest can wait.
Feel free to PM me if you need to vent or want last-minute tips or whatnot. Baby-prep doesn't get more hectic than going in for a routine US and having a C-section a few hours later.
