This morning the balcony view was stunning. I stared at the colours until the red and pink faded into blue sky and then promptly fell asleep again.
I’ve just ordered some organic cloth diapers, and waterproof merino wool bottoms for the baby this morning. If anyone has ever tried these types of diapers/covers before I’d love to know how you went with them. Naturally we’re prepared for it to be a little gross and more time consuming… and will have some disposables for back up/emergency.
Now, I know some of you may or may not have just rolled your eyes (like my dad probably this this morning when I told him). Stay with me, the basis for this choice – is the apparent long term cost savings.
This could all end up going “bottoms up” and become a terrible experience as my dad lamented this morning when we spoke. Either way, if you’ve given it a crack let me know what it was like.
Diapers preferences aside, are there any newborn/baby items you swear by as a mum or dad?
We’ve only just begun considering the crucial things we’ll need to have ready for a new born. I discovered a blog about eco friendly diapers here, which lead me to the merino woollen covers and eventually down the path to cloth diapers.
Seriously though, any words of wisdom would be much appreciated and welcome.
We’ve been gifted some ridiculously teeny tiny cute outfits, toys and books from our friends here in Perth, and New Zealand. One item particularly is at first glance odd – but is in fact a small flatout koala bear that is made of sheepskin. I may or may not have been known to cuddle with it… I’d never heard of it before, but as an adult I see the appeal of luxuriously soft wool. It’s irresistible to touch.
Unrelated side note: There has been some good music surfacing online the past few weeks:
- Dropout – You Always Win
- Lola Marsh – Sirens
- Stephen – Crossfire (the last portion of the track could be chopped) but the intro and middle are really nice. The lyrics are deeper than most.
- Attom – Her
- Lane 8 – Midnight
And in keeping with the parent theme of this post: If you love dad jokes – you need to check out this link. A few of them had us cracking up.
I promise (swear on my heart) not to do this kind of post often.
