Aww! I can smell that wonderful 'new baby' smell from looking at her beautiful head of hair! :)((baby withdrawal!)) lol!Love,Maryhttp://lundkids.blogspot.com
Oh Tonya! I love the picture of you and little Emmy together. So tender! The kids' costumes are wonderful, they did a great job!
What a beautiful photo of the two of you! Love the costume series! :) When I line-dried cds, I would often toss them in the dryer for 5 min (or less) to loosen up the fibers so they wouldn't be so stiff.
I toss in the dryer just enough to soften them up.
beautiful, it's good to have those early days photos, it passes so quickly. adding a little vinegar to the final rinse will help with the softening. i miss those days of hanging out the diapers (not the washing so much, just pinning up the clean ones!).:)
Love that picture of the two of you together. Have a great weekend.
Dear Tonya, Such a lovely lovely photo of you two girls. A beautiful image to come back to when you need a little refresher. As for cloth diapers, a little vinegar does help, and I'm sorry to say, but I also like to toss them in the drier for 5 mins, too. Maybe not so environmental, but baby's comfort is good, too!xo Jules
That's a wonderful picture of you both. One that you'll treasure one day when we're all old & krinkly, I'm sure.
I have used the drier trick as well... But would ironing them make them soft?
Vinegar in the rinse cycle works wonderfully!
Sweet Emmy indeed! And a sweet picture of the two of you. The children's costumes are terrific--so much imagination. When I was a girl, my mother taught me to "rough up" the diapers before folding them--basically twist and crumple them for a few seconds. Of course these were the thin, fold-your-own diapers. With my own sweet daughter, I had a mixture of that kind and the thick, pre-folded ones. The latter definitely took more muscle, but it worked out fine. At least, I never got any complaints!
A beautiful, beautiful photo of you and your lovely Emmy. I've been thinking of you all week and the struggles you mentioned earlier. My little one is nearly three months now but we were in that same place not too many weeks ago - fussy time in the evening, desperately offering a soother which she rejected and wondering how I would ever get back to any sort of schedule. Sleep has improved ten-fold in those weeks and we are starting to sort itself out...but those newborn days are already whisking away too fast. Saying a prayer for you! Enjoy those wonderful newborn snuggles! xo Rachel
What a beautiful collection of photos. I agree, apple cider vinegar in the rinse will help keep the cotton soft.
The costumes that children piece together themselves are always a delight. And that photo of you and your babe - also a delight!
I also use vinegar in the last rinse cycle.
Lovely moments - wonderful costumes :)Re diapers - give them a good shake before you put them on the airer and if they feel crunchy when they are dry, try rubbing them together quite briskly xx
Vinegar helps to soften up cloth diapers (and it helps get rid of buildup as well).
adding the vinegar response. It works for me!Beautiful picture.
we use vineagr too!i did a handmade gift post here - about a sweet handmade gift for a child to make, and give: http://sewnnatural.com/blog/2011/11/handmade-by-kids-gift-needle-felted-journal-leaf-card.html
Vinegar always worked for us when ours were young. We had four in four years *(the two inthe middle are twins) and I hung line after line out! Vinegar makes them soft....brightens them....and leaves no odor!! She's sweet. And so are you!
Such a beautiful picture. And those costumes look amazing!
Awww, you are so beautiful Tonya...the both of you together just radiate! It is funny to see some diapers that I recognize hanging there. Happy they are getting some use! Hope you are getting some well deserved rest with little Emmy!:)Lisa
