Here are some pictures of some of the things I have been working on to be prepared for our little one.
I sewed a nursing cover. My sister suggested that I make it out of a light weight material and larger dimensions than the pattern called for.
My Dear Husband put the crib together this past week.
I installed the car seat yesterday.
I am planning to cloth diaper our baby. I have been working on modifying inferior quality gerber pre-folds by taking out the polyester middles and adding birds-eye cotton to the center so that they will be more absorbent, making some flats out of flannel, collecting old receiving blankets, and prepping the new cotton by boiling it. To break in un-used cotton it is good to boil it for thirty minutes. This step will make the cotton more absorbent. This is what my new born cloth diaper stash looks like:
I am going to use the Econobum new born size water proof cover with pre-folds and flats on the inside.
I have 11 of these gauze rectangle flats,
34 assorted pre-folds,
8 flannel rectangle flats,
and 10 old receiving blankets to use as flats.
I hope to stick with cloth diapering. Maybe I will write a review of what I liked and what worked best for me after a few months.
These disposable diapers were a gift from my grandma. I am going to be grateful to have them in the first week especially! :)
I have also been cooking some freezer meals to make things easier when the baby comes. Sorry, I don't have any pictures of those to share.
That is what I have been up to. I hope every one out there is doing well!
