The Meike MK-Z-AF1 auto extension tubes are an inexpensive way . It retains AF , exif transmission and even allows use of the focus shift feature . Both tubes on your 50mm would give approx 0.73:1 reproduction ratio which is probably enough for your uses.

You can work out the reproduction ratio for different focal lengths here

More importantly hope all goes well with your wife and baby

I would concur with this approach. I have them and am very satisfied with the results. Its all you need for about 90% of the macro situations you would run into. One of the best bang for buck purchases you can make. Save the money for diapers and toys......

Thanks for seconding this advice Wingster!  I followed it, and am quite pleased with them so far.

Might be the best $40 I’ve spent on camera gear from a value perspective.
