I got mine through AAMI at the trust birth conference, but I'm not seeing any on their cafe-press store. I'll ask around on their yahoo group, and see if they have more.

You could start at Little Earth Angels... if you don't like what she's got, she may be able to whip something up for you or know of someone else who has what you're looking for. I've got two of her born at home prefolds I got with my 2yo, very cute and soft.

I did a search at Cafepress for homebirth and saw a lot that I liked. Which reminds me, I should go and pick out my favorite sometime soon. I'm not sure the quality of Cafepress' shirts, though.. anyone know?

The only problem with the cafepress shirts is the smallest is 6 month. I was looking for something for the baby to ware in birth announcement pics.

oh yay! thanks for the in his hands link, those are cheap!

Do you guys think its "jinxing" to buy it before having a homebirth? I saw a thread on that somewhere and asked my DH and he thinks it is. He thinks we should buy one after shes born. I want one NOW though, so she can wear it right away....

Whats your thoughts on this?

That's really funny that the InHisHands one was linked. I have a story there...

(BTW, they are a very small NB size...)

I ordered one for my first son's birth. I attempted a UC, and ended up making an emergency transfer to the hospital. After I got out of the hospital and he got out of NICU, I found that thing at home and I was so pissed I threw it in the trash! Oh well. I don't think I 'jinxed' it, but boy was I mad about my birth. It wouldn't have fit him anyway - he was a big baby.

I had a HB with my 2nd, but I didn't buy any clothes for it first!

I didn't buy one for DS b/c I felt like it would jinx just a weird thing. I think I might get one this time (a newborn one for the new babe and a toddler one for DS! )

I almost ordered this one with my birth kit. I didn't because I was afraid I would jinx it.

I am getting mine( my birth kit) from the same place but I thought the shirt was a little too feminine in case I have a boy.

Just popping in to day that LEA is a wonderulf store run by a wonderful WAHM. She's SO helpful! And, I, too, LOVE her Born At Home preemie PF as a first dipe.
