Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.
 

Everyone is making a big deal about baby feet prints at the hospital. Do I need to bring a scrapbook page or does the hospital provide?

Typically, the hospital provides a photo. But there's no reason you can't get a pad of ink and stamp your baby's foot and handprints on everything. Just clean off the ink with a baby wipe. And, it might make for a memorable baby announcement. :)
My hospital provided a keepsake for both my girls. 
most hospitals give a keepsake birth certificate in which they stamp the babies foot prints since they now put one on the bassinet for id of baby
When our nephew was born they put them on the birth certificate and also on special stickers that were supposed to be for a scrapbook/baby book.
