The newspaper thread got me thinking about this. We have a lovely blue stripy box with a plane on it that reads 'my memories and keepsakes' and we kept Harrison's:
Both our hospital bands
Tiny babygro he came home in
12 week scan photos (20 week ones are framed)
4D scan photos and DVD
Newspaper from day he was born
'' Its' a Boy! '' banner that was on my front door when I came home
All his cards bundled up with a blue ribbon
Hand and foot prints on a piece of card
Spare birth certificate
'baby on board' t-shirt I always wore when pregnant
Bounty pack I got from my first m/w appointment
A little blue teddy
My angelsounds doppler lol
Hospital notes (well, the letter they give - i'm gutted that the midwife keeps pregnancy and post-natal notes loved reading over them, I always read over my mum's from when she was pregnant/had me)
So glad im not the only one that kept his cord stump pee pots are brilliant for keeping it air tight.
Most of the rest of the stuff is the same things like scan photos, first baby grows, cards from family, birth certificate, first pair of tiny socks, hospital bands, a (unused) newborn nappy, foot prints.
