Here's my current ISO:

For Me:

Clothes for her waldorf dolly – 12 inch and skinny. She specifically wants underwear and a nightgown. Matching nightgowns for her and her dolly would be the best thing to ever happen as far as she's concerned. My MIL is making matching robes, but can't handle nightgowns - they're too difficult.

2-3 yr soft shoes - new condition please.. I'm weirded out by used shoes. His robeez are too tight for his fat ankles... but he loves them so much
His nickname is duckie, if that inspires anything in you!

For Leila, born July 28th:
Hanna playdress/daydresses – size 50 for summer, 60 or larger in either long or short sleeves. Also any "oh so happy" dresses

Hi mamas! To those new to the RAOK thread (that's Random Acts of Kindness ), here's a little bit about how it works.

Members post lists of things that they are ISO, in need of, want, etc.. Fellow members can browse through the lists and if they have something they would like to give a particular mama, they just PM that mama for her address and send her a little package. It's a great way to spread some kindness, help a needy mama, or send a "pick-me-up" to someone who's feeling down.

Sending a package out will make you feel great...and it can certainly brighten another's day!

We've had five very successful RAOK threads here - let's keep the kindness going, mamas!!

Wow! Just realized I've gotten most things I need for my baby..
Here's my ISO:


I need..
- pins (for diapers)
- nursing tanks w/ built in bra S/M
- socks! (for me)


I want...
- small longies (once I discovered wool, I just want more and more :LOL)
- medium fitteds (in case I have a big baby that grows fast)
- anything that we can use and free would make my day!!


Hopefully it's short enough. I'm *trying to be* a minimalist!

-*winter coat 18-24mo.*

For Mama: (I have a hippie/indian style)

My only need right now, which is a big one is clothing for dd for this fall and winter. We have nothing.

She is currently 15 months but is in size 12-18 months right now...so for fall/winter, probably larger sized 12-18 month clothing and some 18-24 month stuff that is on the lighter weight side since we live in Phoenix. It still gets cold here but we don't need a lot of sweaters.

~play clothing
~SOCKS
~jeans
~PAJAMAS - we love the footie ones for winter


I'd take pretty much anything in great condition.

Adding and Subtracting from thread #5

Most of these are things I would really like to have, so if anyone else is more in need please help them first.


For DD:
wooden food for play kitchen or little animals
small one-piece traveling potty chair, like or a Bjorn Potty (we go to a playgroup in a park with no potties)
Pajamas: winterweight cotton please or majority cotton blend, as she gets rashes/skinbumps from unbreathable stuff, doesn’t have to be new or fancy-we really need these!
Doll sized cloth diapers (for cabbage patch doll-preemie baby sized)
Any kind of useful diapers- I am starting from almost ground zero and want to stash for babe #2
Kids yoga video/dvd
Any vintage fisher-price/playskool, I am especially looking for a teaching clock, and some of the older little people, (she has a farm, with animals, tractors and no people!)

T-shirts with cool sayings
Socks for a size 6-7 shoe, 3-4T—She’s always had tiny feet, but jumped two sizes over the summer.
Vitamin E-capsules or liquid

House:
natural suntan lotion/insect repellant
oral-b/braun electric toothbrush heads
any kind of toothwhitener (I quit smoking a year ago, and I’m still stuck with the yellow teeth)
water pik or irrigator
teas-anything NOT licorice flavored
herbs especially St. John’s wort, kava kava,valarian
coffee: caf or decaf, any kind or flavor, organic preferred as this is supposed to be better when TTC.
Recyclable NICAD batteries-AA, AAA, C, D, (my charger doesn’t take NIMH)
Small solar garden lights
An insulated vinyl freezer bag (I’m looking for something to keep veggie scraps in for homemade stock).
Small or medium glass pot w/lid
Easy to follow gardening books
Natural flea collar (small cat sized)
Cool cat toys (otherwise the cat steals my DD’s)


Books & Misc;

any back issues of Mothering -the older the better!
Jewish themed GD/AP books
A copy of the book Emergency Childbirth
Xeroxed/books or any form of info on making natural household cleaners, soaps, diapers, slings,
Info on how to make a birthing stool/or even a good picture of what one looks like.
Sling rings
I’d like to have some relaxation tapes/*new age-ey*/jazz music stuff in any form (LP, Cassette, CD)-
If not I would also love some grateful dead tapes (PM me)

Me:
I’m echoing an earlier posters note because we’re on the baby-making roller coaster right now: anything that can aid conceiving, herbs, books, pg test, opks, anything you can think of….
cloth pads (smallish)-I’m hoping for “pantiliner” types-if you’ve got some reasonable or FFS
cycle beads- I am going nuts with trying to chart for insems, and think these might help-Will pass them on when I don’t need them anymore!
Diva Cup sz 2 (yeah, I can dream! I tried to purchase one on e-bay for a reasonable price and got scammed for the first time ever-almost a month’s mad money gone)
anything vintage Cabbage Patch (I collect & restore them)


Anything wahm.—Oh yeah, if it’s stained or not perfect I will take it anyway, I’m a born fixer-upper and firm believer in recycling.

How do these things work? Are they like regular swaps where you give somthing and get something? Or do you just give?

I have tons of stuff to send, but I don't need anything.

LMK.
This one is not like swapping or anything, more like a bunch of wish lists. If you have something you can/want to give to someone, just pm them to offer whatever you have to, and get their address..
Pretty simple, right?

I don't believe that people "sell" things on this thread, we just gift things to other mamas in need or want
