Default Taking a 7 month old to visitation

What are the rules/limits to baby items when taking an infant to visitation? My hubby's visitation is from 9-1 and I want to have enough stuff to last. Bottles, diapers, wipes etc. He hasn't seen the kids in 3 months, and hasn't had any contact with them in 6 (all visits have been non contact), so I want to have enough supplies that he gets to spend every minute with them without getting in trouble.

It should tell you on your State DOC web site. There should be a list on what you can bring in.

Visitors can only bring into the facility items identified by the facility (i.e., identification card, car keys) No food or drink will be brought into the facility from the outside other than bottled formula or like store-bought products for babies.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the facility or Ombudsman Unit at 478-992-5358 or email: Ombudsman@dcor.state.ga.us
Thanks,

Yes, there are baby suppiles you can bring with you.....please call the facility directly and ask what those items are. Then please post in this thread what those items are so we'll know next time someone asks

Ok guys, sorry for delayed response... I never could get a straight answer from any at the prison, other than bottle, diapers and wipes were ok. I was looking more for a limit on these items... but the first time I went, I took two bottles, three diapers, and a few loose wipes in a ziplock bag and they let me right in no questions asked. Today I was told I could only take 1 diaper, 1 bottle, and a couple of wipes in, but I was allowed to leave the rest at the front and go back for more supplies as needed. Mind you, he is at a county camp, so there is only one checkpoint. BOTTOM LINE: call the prison to see if you can get a straight answer, because obviously depending on the prison and the guards on duty, it changes. I would imagine at a bigger prison with more checkpoints the policy would be different.
