well i really need stuff for our little bean.
Any type of newborn cloth diapers and covers would be greatly appreciated.
Any type, shape or form. I Received some off a great mamma but we still could use more.
I really really need a wet bag, as mine leaks now.
any large maternity clothes would also be a blessing
Also we need as getting so cold here already are wool socks (handknitted are great), and slippers for my dh and ds. ds is 21 months and dh has size 9.
Knitted hats or warm hats of any kind would also help us out a lot, additionally any scarves or mitts.
just thought ds also needs winter jammies/sleepers, and training pants (as hoping to potty train b4 new little one arrives) i think im dreaming lol
Additionally if anyone has any beads or old necklaces they dont anymore i can use the beads to make hemp necklaces, and i can also make a few and send out.
as a luxury anyone have any creams, lotions or anything to help me lessen and prevent stretchmarks, and funky jewellery to help a tired pg mamma look better.
Also any old scuba diving related stuff, old books on shipwrecks etc would make my husbands week lol
p.s i can help on shipping a little if needed
p.p.s anyone need and not mind used bras, as i have a couple of nursing bras and a couple of normal ones that too big
This is the greatest thread. i am so lucky to have been able to pass on some little things to other mamas and had some things passed on to me. The generosity and goodness of everyone is so great.
Thank you for reading my list!

What we could use the most right now are dipes for dd

that is the only thing that we *need* - but other little neat things would be appreciated, too

sz. 5 pants, shirts, undershirts, **especially sweaters and pajamas!**
cloth training pants (4-5T)
a wooden airplane (he's just a little obsessed with airplanes!) or car
children's music- cds for home or cassettes for in the car- copies are fine!
set of cloth placemats
airplane or train cake pan
Holiday music cds! (burned copies are great!) I love to play Christmas music, but I think my DH gets sick of listening to my 2 cds over and over

This is such a great thread! I have a couple of things that others might want, I just have to dig them out of their hiding spots! I'll post what we need/would like:
For DS (will be 3 on 11/25/05) (Used condition is great! )
Socks, he wears a size 11 for shoes right now, and it's been so long since I have bought socks, I don't know what size that would translate to.
Pop up or interactive (like pull tab stuff, not electronic) type books. DS has this pop up/interactive/pull the tab and it moves type book of I Know an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly that he's obsessed with.
Kids music cd's. Burned is fine. We're always looking to expand our music library.
Veggie Tales stuff. He just loves those singing vegetables. We've got some stuff, so let me know what you're getting rid of and I'll tell ya if we have it or not.
For DH (6'6", 275#):
Extra long shirts. XXL. The torso of the shirt needs to be long because his torso is long. I'm sick of plumbers crack!
Jeans or work pants, 40x32 or maybe even 40x34???? Do they even make that size?
I usually get him 40x32 because that's the longest length I can find!
Whole Foods (natural/wholesome, you know) Cookbooks. I'm really trying to change our eating habits over here, and so far, the internet has been my cookbook. Not saying it's not useful, but I'd like a cookbook instead of a bunch of recipies written on the backs of junk mail. KWIM?
Burts Bees Garden Tomato Toner and facial cleanser bar. Burts Bees products are the only products I have found (for facial skin care) that actually work and don't make me break out.
Natures Gate original herbal shampoo and conditioner. One of the only hair care products that actually works. Avalon organics made this rosemary stuff (they still do) but they changed the formula in it recently and now it doesn't work as well.
Any *trusted* Herbal Pharmacy handbook...healing herbs, medicinal herbal books. This cold season I'm trying to do it all naturally. Last year we took too much cold medicine for my comfort.
When I dig that stuff up that I don't use anymore, I'll let people know.
needs--candian gc to grocery stores, price choppers, sobeys, zehrs, foodbasics or my zellers and walmart now have grocerys.
for dd Kyra 7 monthes---medium or large diapers. Wool or fleece longies that someone else thinks are tooo worn...would keep her warm. she is really tall, with a round little belly from a hernia, fits into most medium diapers, or large long pants. she needs warm clothes size 9-12 monthes, one peice footed things would be great as she has few socks or shoes that fit. (eta---boots would be a blessing for cold feet size 6-12 monthes or size 1) We could also use any samples of wahm lotions or creams for bum rash, we tried a few solid foods and they reallly disagreed with our sensitive bum.
for me: warm clothes pants, shirts or jackets for 18/20 size maternity, mama pads used or new(lotsa stuff going on down there right now
, nursing bras size 42 b-c any style at all.
and wants would be any outgrown gn dipes or wool or clothes for new babe.
