I’m presently sitting in my pajamas in front of the heater, trying to get over a cold. Being sick is extra not fun when 1) you’re pregnant, and can’t take cold medicine, 2) it’s freezing in the house, and 3) your husband is away for 4 days. Oh well. At least I have hot tea and a stack of romantic comedies to keep me company.
While stuck at home, I got lots of baby stuff done in the last few days. I’m making my way through a few books, Heading Home With Your Newborn and Babyproofing Your Marriage. I also set up our baby gift registries. That took a while, since I did tons of research on what first-time parents need. If you’re having a baby and looking for advice on what to buy, call me. I’m an expert.
I decided that there are a few things I’d rather make myself than purchase. For my first baby project I made a nursing cover.
Nursing covers are those handy pieces of cloth that moms use to keep from flashing people while breastfeeding in public. They can be purchased for about $35-$50, but can be easily made. With the help of a few great online tutorials (listed below), I made one yesterday. Mine is reversible, has an adjustable strap, and has a rigid neckline to provide easy viewing of the baby. It was quick and simple, and I am quite excited to use it in a few months!
PS. I promise to keep breastfeeding discussion on this blog to a minimum. You’re welcome, male readers.
