THE nappy

This is the nappy I am going to make more of. Again it's not exactly pretty, made from an old towel but it does the job! It's made from the Wee Weka free nappy pattern and I'm pretty much sold on this one. It is quite long in the rise but fits beautifully when I fold the rise down which means it will (hopefully!) be a nappy to fit Jake for a long time. I have also been busy making little wipes (smaller than a facewasher...these are just TOO big at the moment) from old towels and an old flannelette blanket. These work great as the rougher towelling side is great for wiping off the poo and the flannel side is nice and smooth to finish off. I've also been making my own wipes solution from water, oil, baby bath and honey. Smells SO good and gives Jake a nice smooth bum while also helping his little eczema type problems we have. See how lovely and chubby my bub is getting? lol Makes a difference when he has a full tum! Little Jake is now almost 12 weeks old....where has the time gone?

Thanks Hayley :) Was thinking of PUL but not at the moment....I'm still mastering just good old normal fabrics! Bamboo fleece is still a challenge for me! lol
