Even though I’m probably a little over a month away from the birth, I think it’s time to shop for the baby and the home birth. You never know… baby might come early and I don’t want to be caught without a car seat or diapers. Over the year, I’ve slowly bought things like organic onesies and clothes, organic Moby wrap, a few organic cotton toys, organic swaddle blanket, organic blanket, etc. But, I need more. So, this week I’m off to buy:
Baby Stuff: Orbit infant car seat system (they have the greenest product I can find), organic cloth diapers (a variety of options, but not many in quantity since we’re going to practice EC. I’ll report details and opinions in future posts), diaper stuff (pails, wipes, soap, bags, etc), ring sling (maybe two, one for me and one for my mom), newborn health kit (nail clippers, thermometer, etc), and maybe a diaper bag.
EC Stations: I’ll need to buy a couple of potty bowls – (and this little potty looks extra cool, in spite of the few reviews, because it’s made from bamboo and rice husks… AND, when the child is done using it, h/she can plant it in the garden), wipes, etc. These will be set up around the house – and since we spend a lot of time at my mom’s house, I’ll need to double up.
Home Birth Stuff: towels, receiving blankets, bucket, and create the food plan (freeze foods for after baby is born – for my husband and myself – and get my young Thai coconut water prepared for the home birth – I want to have it all set and ready to thaw for drinking when the day arrives).
It’s going to be a fun week!!!
