    ...that I'm excited that I bought breast pads yesterday?! I got two packs of washable ones, Boots and Avent as I couldn't decide between. I also got some huge and some skinny maternity pads and, much more exciting, a pack of biodegradable newborn nappies. hooray! Now we've got a little time before deciding what reusables to try later. At least baby's bum will be covered for a while!

    And today I've done a first baby wash of towels, muslins, new socks and hats and things. It's going to be so funny to see tiny socks hung up to dry for the first time!

    Thanks! I'm not washing the cotbed sheets yet. We're using a moses basket first and we've got neither the cotbed here yet nor a mattress to go in it! All the baby's clothes are second hand so they're all already washed so it's not such a big job. Exciting though! I'm enjoying getting my changing bag all ready for the baby (help DH once baby is here whether we are in hospital or at home). Need to think about a hospital bag soon though I still hope I won't need one.

    It's not sad at all, it's exciting!

    I'm debating when to start washing all my stuff. Don't want to do it too early, but don't want to do it too late either.

    Well I've now got a line of shiny baby towels and muslins hung out, and all the socks and mitts on one of those little clippy things, dunno if you know what I mean! So very cute! Had the challenge of finding them all in the washing machine and kept finding mitts on the floor! Everything's so tiny! I fell very pleased with myself about the washing!

    The mitts and socks can get stuck in the filter too:dohh:....don't ask me how they get through the tiny gap but it happens. Check washer and dryer filters regularly:rofl:. My washer had 2 scratch mitts and a sock in it once when the engineer came to see why it was skipping cycles:dohh:...if I'd only checked the filter 1st:blush:


    Those little net bags for washing tablets are good to keep things togeather, you can get a couple of pairs of socks or mitts in each bag without compromising the wash:happydance:....that's my "tip of the day". Or you can buy a bigger net bag from Blooming Marvellous or somewhere like that.
