Quilted playmat: I used Nani Iro fabric for the front, and an organic solid cotton for the back.
Swaddling blanket: You simply have to use double gauze for the front and flannel for the back...it makes the coziest blanket ever. This is the blanket that we used in the hospital and even the nurses commented on how great it was!
Quilt: Great for bundling up baby in the stroller on long walks.
Muslin swaddling blankets: I didn't make ours, but you easily could. These are by far the best for tight, secure swaddling.
That's my short list...do you have anything to add?
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
See...here's the thing: I love the daytime. We wile away the hours snuggling, going for long walks, and napping together between feedings. But the nights are so tough. I guess it's knowing that when my head hits the pillow, I have less than three hours until I will need to feed and change him again that really gets to me.
So today, I am breaking out the breast pump and hoping that by tonight, I can hand off a feeding to my patient, loving and completely supportive husband...who wants to help. I am hanging on to this hope...wish me luck!
