If you have or are having a new baby, there's plenty to do like choosing furniture, clothing, a name, and so on. That's the fun stuff. Don't forget to plan for the less fun stuff too... What you need to get done for emergencies:  Take infant and child CPR and first aid. Choose a spot for emergency information and make sure it stays there. You need to stash emergency phone numbers like your baby's pediatrician and poison control and a basic safety manual (like an infant CPR booklet). Make a will. You do need a will once you have kids. It's not a pleasant task, but necessary. Besides a will, you should also make sure you have life insurance coverage, and that it's worth enough to take care of your child should something happen to you.
