I’ve finally gotten around to making my wool wrap diaper covers–the easiest way to use wool, in my opinion (just lay a folded-up flat or prefold inside, and snap-on). With my new baby about to be born it’s been the perfect time for me to test my patterns. Now that they’re complete, I have: a newborn size wool wrap with a snap-down rise (the wrap snaps down for the umbilical cord area, then can be worn un-snapped once the area is healed); a newborn size with no snap-down rise; a small/medium size; and a medium/large–three sizes to fit birth through potty learning, and no extra bulk like one-size diaper covers have. Again, as with my wool soakers, I wanted an awesome fit, less sizes overall, and simplicity. I’m so pleased with how they’ve turned out.
Fae has had some fun “helping” me–or in a better term–making a mess with snaps. She’s still a little young for full-on sorting (without getting distracted), but at 2 1/2 she’s great with transferring and pouring.
Fia has also enjoyed my work space. And she appears to have gotten a little fat this winter.
I feel like I’ve made everything that I’ll need–or want–for this new little baby (wool soakers, wool longies, wool wraps, a wool sleep sack, wool-backed nursing pads, wool-only nursing pads, an organic wool blanket, a wool puddle pad, a wool travel changing mat, and some wool booties). And I’m happy to still have my organic cotton sling that I made right before Fae was born.
We’re moving tomorrow morning to a beautiful, new apartment, back in the city (a small city), which surprisingly is exactly what I want. I’ll now be finally able to nest-in–at 35 weeks pregnant. I couldn’t be more excited for that.
My wool wraps will end up in my shop, Fae Arbor–probably post-birth, but maybe a few before.
Fae is playing with egg shells while I cook oatcakes for us to eat for breakfast.
