Day 291 - Quick Reference

Today's first time parenting tip - Create a quick reference card with all your baby's important numbers

If you've ever had a prescription denied at the pharmacy or had to fill out a form for daycare, you know how many random numbers you need to know regarding your baby. Between social security numbers, health insurance numbers, day care numbers, etc. It can be mind boggling.

To make things easier, take a 3 x 5 index card and write down all the important numbers. That way when you're at a new daycare and you need to fill out your pediatrician's phone number, your health insurance member number and your baby's social security number, you won't have to call your spouse or come back later.

This card should include:

  • Child's social security number. You may want to create a code for this, or leave it off. That way if someone finds the card or you lose it, you don't have to worry about identity theft.

  • Health, Dental and Vision insurance member numbers

  • Pediatrician's Phone Number and Address

  • Day Care Phone Number and Address
