It's inevitable that something will be forgotten during regular grocery trips, no matter how thorough the list was.

Send the in-laws out on runs to the drugstore for necessities like diapers, formula, pain medications, energy drinks, stretch mark cream, a new metabolism, brownie mix and so on.

While they're at it, have them grab an extra gallon of ice cream. You've had a physically and emotionally trying week, so indulge yourself before the pressure to lose the baby weight really ramps up.
