When our child was born last April, the hospital put her footprints on some document. They kept that document and gave us a blank certificate (the fake one for display/keepsake) and a stamp pad to make our own footprints with. As you can imagine, that didn't get done. I still have the stuff and can make footprints, but they'll be 4 month old footprints.

I was wondering if anyone knows if a copy of the original can be obtained? It may be a per hospital thing, but perhaps if one person has done this I can too.

@Justin what country are you in? I imagine the responses will be different depending on where you are. I'm pretty sure that the hospital did not take our daughter's footprints but my husband had a birth certificate which includes his.

I am in the good ol' US of A.

And the great state of Texas I might add.

Have you tried asking nicely? I don't know 'bout the US of A, but where I live that gets you a long way :D

@brandstaetter - Haha, it's on the to-do list. I figure it's going to take a good chunk of time and a few transfers to get to someone that knows the answer. When I have a few spare minutes, I was going to call the Hospital.

They gave us the sheet with their footprints (not sure if it's the only original) when we left the hospital, we didn't have to ask. I live in NJ.
