baby Minky Dot coat and boots

Dottie Baby Coat & Boots

Every once in awhile our amazing seamstresses will come across a fabric that impresses them to create for someone special in their life.  One such seamstress, with our Madison Coat pattern in hand, began to cut, gather, and stitch a darling coat for her newest granddaughter.  It turned out SO fantastic we just had to add it to our shop for all of you!  What fabric did she use you ask?

100% polyester Minky Dot fabric

Minky Dot fabric is not only a supremely soft micro-fiber but the polka dot feature has a “pop-out” 3D effect that is uber cuddly.  The Peter Pan style collar, puff sleeves, and large silk covered buttons bring an air of whimsy and innocence. A high waisted bodice complete with subtle gathers will enhance the baby doll beauty in any little girl.  In fact, you will want to pinch her cheeks just to make sure she is still real.

Matching up

We loved this little Minky Coat so much we couldn’t help but make a pair of matching boots!  Starting with the same Minky fabric, a large silk covered button was fastened along with a looped elastic.  This makes dressing baby’s feet quick and easy!  What mom wouldn’t love that!  That is not even the best part, the insides are fully lined with synthetic fur that is so snuggly you will wish you could crawl inside.

Newborn Swaddling

A great post on correct newborn swaddling with a link to a video by a pediatrician.

Swaddling is a great way to comfort newborns. It also helps them sleep better. They feel safe and secure when they’re all wrapped up. Who doesn’t?

Newborn swaddling must be done correctly to ensure baby’s safety and comfort. We found this great video from BabyCenter.com. {learn about swaddling from BabyCenter.com} A pediatrician shows you different swaddling methods and how to do them correctly.  It was super informative!

In the video, they explained how to choose the safest swaddling blankets. They suggest lightweight, breathable blankets. You don’t want baby to get too warm or be in danger of suffocation. This can happen if the blanket is too thick or heavy. Here are some blankets by Aden and Anais that are perfect for newborn swaddling. They’re made from a lightweight and breathable bamboo material. Each are 47″ by 47″ and gets softer with each wash. (Don’t worry. You can throw them in the machine!) The ultimate swaddling blankets!

Free Printable New Baby Checklist

Preparing for a new baby can be a daunting task! You find yourself wondering all sorts of things you’ve never thought of. Should I go with disposable diapers or cloth diapering? How many burp cloths will I need? Should I invest in a good baby monitor or spend more for a stroller? We’ve been there. We know all newborns are different. Some spit up more than others. Some take pacifiers. Some don’t. The same mom will swear by a different brand of diapers for each baby. How do you know what you’ll need?

Don’t stress! We talked to a panel of experienced moms and came up with a list they all agree on. This will ease your mind! They suggest you have these items on hand when bringing baby home from the hospital. Most parents wait until they know the gender to start shopping. Our moms suggest you leave yourself plenty of time to organize baby’s gear and set up the nursery. The last trimester can sneak up on you. And an expecting mom’s energy is easily depleted by then. So, grab the list and get started! We hope you enjoy this free printable new baby checklist!
