We got a breech brat! lol!

Photobucket
About 7 weeks ago or so, my midwife announced to me, our baby boy, due January 29th was breech. This scared me, but when I went back to my next appt, he had went head down. WELL, last week I went in again, and found out the little stinker is head up again. Im 35.5 weeks about now and I am nearing the end of the road here lol! My midwife will come to my house on the 6th and check again. I have been getting a lot of people to pray for baby Zayden and I that he will turn for the birth if it is what God wants. I am terrified of having a c-section, but if that is the safest route for my baby, then that will be what I am happy with. My first two were births in a hospital, my daughter I had an epidural, my son who was a whopping 10.8lbs, I had natural. This time I am planning a homebirth. In Ontario, you cannot deliever a breech baby at home. I did try an inversion tonight. dont know if I was successful or not. Im a bit nervous about trying new things. I wouldnt want to hurt the baby at all in any way. I know that whether I have the baby at home, at the hospital or in surgury.. I just want him to be healthy.

Babywearing during pregnancy.

Edited- October 10th - I took a picture yesterday afternoon of my big man in his carrier.

I cannot believe the looks I get from people when I am wearing my 18 month old son and carrying my other son inside me. Its so bizzare. I am used to people saying to me "that cant be comfortable!" when I wasnt pregnant carrying my big old boy, then only to make them realize that its so absolutly wonderful, but to now have them just blatantly FREAKING OUT because I am babywearing during pregnancy. Just makes me wanna go bonkers!

I looove being pregnant, and I love wearing my son. I always carry him on my back now, and he just loves it! I really need to get a pregnancy picture of me carrying him. There is no reason for a woman to stop wearing there baby if they are pregnant if they are used to doing it anyways. I dont see the difference between that and bending down to push a stroller or pull a wagon. This is a great article on baby wearing while pregnant for those interested!

Fruit Dyed slings for spring!

I am so pleased to announce that I will be doing custom orders for fruit dyed ring slings this year! They are done with unbleached cotton and the colours are absolutly wonderful. I will have photo's posted soon of swatches. The cost will be 40$ plus shipping. The cost is higher than my other slings because of the process that comes with fruit dying. Just takes a little more care and time. Please contact me if you are interested!

Trying tie dye for the first time.

What an exciting process this has been, even though I did not wear gloves, and my fingers are now a few colours they werent before I started.
I used acrylic paints and 100 percent unbleached cotton.

I did a halter top as well, but forgot to take pictures. It was fun, I hope it turns out because if it doesnt that would be a waste of fabric, but I cant see how it wont work. I have been told it will turn out really good with acrylics! So heres hoping!

Totally in love with babywearing

If I was to go back about 10 years I would have never thought I would be carrying a baby on my back in a ring sling, and I definatly wouldnt have imagined I would be making them! But here I am, making them and LOVING it!
For those who dont understand how wonderful baby wearing can be, let me tell you it is so fantastic!
I want to do a whole post on this later on hopefully this week. Right now I am dealing with a head cold and a teething baby boy. But baby wearing has helped me along during my sick day. He's up in my arms, and I am not chasing him everywhere around the house while I am trying to get as much done as I can while feeling like...poo!



A little quick mention about what this page was started for, my ring slings. They sell for aprox 30 dollars unless you have a specific request that would obviously run the price up (ie, hemp fabrics and other fabrics that are expensive).

Again I appologize to those who have been bugging me to get this page up and running. I have just been so busy! This business has taken off and I am so proud of it!

Thanks!
