What to Bring for Your Visit

We want you to be as prepared as possible for the arrival of your new baby. The following are a few items that you may want to have packed and ready to bring with you to the hospital: robe, slippers, socks, nursing bra or good supportive bra, cosmetics, toiletry items, going home outfit for the baby, receiving blanket, camera or video camera, and an infant car seat (Colorado law mandates the use of infant seat when traveling by car).
