The weeks are ticking by here and I am now 26 weeks. Time is moving slowly and quickly all at the same time - I think that strange experience with time only happens when you are pregnant. I have started a little sewing for the baby (some of which I will post this week) and have turned my mind to preparing for the practicalities of the arrival of our baby. And I am after some advice;
1. Can anyone recommend a brand/type of all in one washable nappies? (Sorry, I am not up with all the lingo here - I think its an AIO?) With Minnie I only used disposables, I would like some washables as well. I cannot deal with the old fashioned square cloth that you fold in some origami way and I know there are many snazzy and functional nappies out there.
2. I know there are a million slings on the market but would love your feedback on what's good and possibly, what's not. With Minnie I used and loved the Baby Bjorn Active but want a sling for when the baby is tiny and so they can spend longer in it. Minnie almost lived in that carrier or in a sarong tied up like a sling so I think this time a dedicated sling is in order. I wore that baby all day and I am sure I will be doing the same again! Or if you have made one from a good pattern, can you please let me know which one.
3. Does anyone have a good supplier of organic cotton jersey/stretch fabric (around 200gsm) and organic cotton flannel. I have been making baby pants and tops and cannot bring myself to buy the rubbish jersey fabric from the big shyster type stores in my area.
It's like consulting the oracle - I thank you in advance!
