Mom and baby craft project
It’s cold outside, no surprise there, here in the northern hemisphere it’s winter. And as much as I love naked babies and hugging and kissing their super baby soft skin, I have to keep them pretty well covered so they stay warm, their hands and feet stay cold no mater what I do, but that’s actually ok, as long as a baby’s head and core are warm then they are ok. One pieces are great, especially the ones with the feet, but they are not the most stylish of ensembles. And pants over a long sleeve onesie is a nice look but kind of a pain when it comes to 10 (or 20) diaper changes in a day. Enter a great idea- BABY LEG-WARMERS! Not my idea but a great one! There is a company out there called Babylegs that sells over embellished baby leg warmer styles for $14 a pair (please remember I need two of everything), and there are quite a few crafters out there who made their own and are selling them in various Etsy shops for $7-$14. Better, but wait, I know how to sew! So I found this blog, with step by step instructions on how to create homemade baby leg-warmers. And after a quick trip to target a clearance priced purchase and 15 minutes later (not including the hour and half of coaxing baby Jordan back to sleep. She went to sleep at 7:30 then woke up at 8 cried, pooped, ate, slept in my arms, then cried some more, ate more, and pooped more and finally fell back asleep.) I have two pairs of infant sized leg-warmers!
These are going to be great for babies learning to crawl.
