|Etsy: Your place to buy & sell all things handmade|
when i first discovered i was pregnant, i made a promise to myself that i wouldn't buy anything for the baby until i found out what sex it was. not so much because of any pink vs. blue issues as i'm planning a pretty earth toned wardrobe either way but it seemed a good way to postpone the inevitable flood of cuteness that i knew i'd be consumed by once i let myself. i've done so well, avoiding going into baby shops, not thinking too much about it... until last week, when i started doing a bit of "research" into cloth diapers (yep, i'm giving them a go and any australian available brands you can recommend or feedback you have would be hugely appreciated) and online baby shops. of course, browsing around baby shops, i became enamored with cuteness and when i spotted a sale, i finally broke and bought my first items of baby clothing. three wee Gaia organic cotton bodysuits arrived on my desk yesterday and they are sooooo soft and small and lovely - i'm smitten. and, now that the flood gates have sprung a leak, i've spent so much time the past few days perusing esty for handmade and vintage baby goods. i still want to put off buying too many clothes as i know my mom is already stockpiling stuff in canada to bring over (she's pretty excited) but i wanted to get some feedback from you guys as to what i really need for a winter baby? what and how much? and what can i make myself and what should i just buy?
oh, and i already snapped up those adorable vintage moccasins above - pure future cuteness with little jeans and a grey longsleeve t-shirt, i'm thinking : )
