So I am really proud of myself. I made a totally cute (at least I think so) no bottles/ artificial nipples sign for the hospital. Take a look:

Totally feel free to print it out for yourself too!

Thats great! I made a more simpler one when DS#2 was in the NICU... I found that it kept getting taken down and put in the drawer of his bed! I finally taped it with so much clear tape to the side of his isolette that they probably had a hard time getting it off when we were discharged!

That is really cute! When my DS1 was in the NICU we put signs with black magic marker on every single side of his isolette and we would STILL find pacifiers tucked into the bed linens or the nurses offering to give him a bottle of formula so I wouldn't have to pump. No matter how many times we asked, they didn't comply. Finally DH had to take a nutty in the NICU and that got their attention, LOL.

Great sign!

we joked about putting that on a t-shirt for wearing at the hospital. I think we may just do that this time around...
