In the event that you find yourself with a new baby, I cannot highly enough recommend one of these.
It is called a Kylee.
Kylees are quiet and gentle enough not to disturb tubes and wires and can sit with a baby for long periods of time.
Kylees are very efficient at changing diapers, dressing, and reading books to babies so mom can shower.
Kylees are also capable of entertaining crowds of preschoolers and babies while breakfast is being made.
Seriously, no one should ever, ever, ever have a baby without a Kylee!
