you will need a birth certificate or birth letter and shot record. when he's in there, you should get a paper that tells what he did that day, what he ate, how much he ate, ect. if you're breastfeeding, you have to send in the breastmilk pumped and frozed/cold, in a cooler. if you're FF, check with the daycare, some will mix the formula with the water, as long as the formula and water are premeasured. some won't, and you have to have it premade and it be refridgerated, they will warm it up. as for what they do during the day, at 8 months you should look for things like "had floor/tummy time", played in excersaucer, worked on balance, played with toys, ect. the daycare i work at (i'm the infant teacher) we have to move infants every 30 minutes to a different activity, so they're not sitting in an excersaucer all day. they will also change his diaper every hour, some will even if he's dry, depends on the daycare.
