Baby Supplies

I am feeling very excited. I just ordered my first wet bag for diapers and one duo wrap thirsties diaper. My SIL uses Thirsties diapers and absolutely loves them so I am going with the pro on her advice. They are so darn cute! I am waiting on purchasing more 'till I can drive into the city and check out the cloth diapering store for myself. Right after hitting up Subway with the kids I am ordering a Special Delivery baby Hammock. They are made by Patricia Mather
Physician, Midwife, Seamstress,
Mother and Grandmother and her daughters. If anyone is interested in baby hammocks I would suggest checking out her website www.specialdeliverybabyhammock.com. I have done a TON of research on baby hammocks and these are awesome! I know I may sound like I am trying to sell her product, but I do love supporting small companies especially a family owned and operated one. Just a few moms sitting around sewing baby hammocks. They have been in business since 2010 and have a great website with lots of info. I am so excited to start getting ready for this baby!

Awesome! I love their company. I sent an email with fabric questions and received an email back in three hours and all of my questions answered thoroughly. I did so much research and almost gave up on a hammock until I found their company. The design of them is beautiful and seems like the most natural and safest I have found... Good luck with the research

Anyone have any ideas of an easy way (while in the end stages of labor) to have oil automatically heated? This is my 3rd and I want to do organic cloths and oil compresses to help the perineum stretch. I've had minor tearing with both my home births previously and really want to focus on this this time around. Is there something like an oil heater that won't get it too hot? Or a tea light candle contraption?

hmmm, a tealight contraption or oil warmer is an interesting idea. It is made for scenting your home but you could just as easily use it to heat up your own oils then soak a washcloth in it. Have you thought of applying oils to the perineum area throughout your pregnancy? That may help drastically also...

Sme of the midwives around here use a crock pot to make warm soaks for the perineum, but they are heating up water and cloths; it's probably too big for heating just oil, but I'm not sure exactly what you have planned?

Yes, perineal massage is helpful!

A crock pot is a great idea! They actually make small crock pots for making dips, that would be the perfect size!

Back to the hammocks for a sec. I've never heard of these before but after checking out that link, I'm seriously considering getting one for this baby! Thanks for sharing mamabear!

What type of oil are you ladies thinking? olive, coconut, evening primrose??

I got to go to some tag sales today courtesy of my wonderful other MIL. I got a Moses basket for only $15! There wasn't too much in terms of baby items. Well, for things that were unisex or girl-ish. And the stuff I did like the women wanted too close to retail for, so no point in buying. But I'm loving the Moses basket! Our puppy thinks it's for her, haha.

Aww, Moses baskets are so sweet.


Chunklins, I have had loads of questions for Patricia who runs the hammock company and she has gotten back to me each time with all of my answers and tons of sweetness too. I feel very confident in their company and product and can't wait to get my hammock! It is being made right now!


I would think using coconut oil would be a good oil for softening up skin.

Can babies sleep overnight in the baby hammock or is it just for naps?

Yes, they absolutely can sleep overnight in the hammock, I would say very closely to mommy. You can hang it over your bed or by the side right at eye level. It really is a matter of comfort though, like what are you comfortable with. When they are older it is recommended to hang it low to the ground so if they fall out it is only a matter of inches. Some people choose to use them just for naps because it is what they are comfortable with. You should check out the website and email the owner. I bet she could answer your question beautifully. All of her grandchildren use them and sleep in them well into toddlerhood.
