A Tour of My Baby ItemsKateTietje
Unlike the previous two times, we’re not setting up a nursery this time. It’s mostly practical: we don’t have the space for the baby to have his/her own room. We also have yet to decide if we’ll move the bigger kids in together, or if the baby will join one of them after a few months. My daughter’s latest thought on that issue is: “The baby has to be a girl and she has to sleep in my room!” So, who knows!
But we definitely are preparing for this baby in other ways. We’re pulling out all the stuff I’ve sewn for new babies previously, as well as sewing some new items. Some of our bigger baby items (like swing, bassinet, etc.) are coming out again too. It’s kind of exciting: my house has been devoid of all “baby” items for some time now, since both my bigger kids are past that stage. Today I’m going to take you on a tour of the baby things, including several that I’ve sewn myself!
Bassinet 1 of 5This is where the baby will sleep in the early months: the bassinet, next to my bed!
Moby-Style Wraps 2 of 5I have two: one will stay in the car, and one will stay in the house, so if I have a fussy or snuggly baby, I can keep him/her close and still have my hands free to chase the older ones!
Newborn Shirt 3 of 5This will be baby's first outfit: a tiny wrap-style t-shirt that I sewed myself.
Newborn Cloth Diapers 4 of 5I have 24 of these newborn pocket-style cloth diapers just waiting to be used! They'll fit baby until around 10 lbs. (Yes, I designed and sewed them myself.)
Baby Swing 5 of 5If I need a safe place to put baby down, I'll be using this swing. Both my other two loved it, so here's to hoping this one does too!
