Aching breasts? Need some relief?

Cut out four 6 inch circles of a soft 100% cotton (prewashed) fabric, such as cotton knit, flannelette or double layers of gauze.

You can use recycled T-shirts, worn-out cloth diapers, etc.

Cut with pinking shears, if you have them, for a nice edge.

Cut out four 6 inch circles of a soft 100% cotton (prewashed) fabric, such as cotton knit, flannelette or double layers of gauze
Put two layers of fabric on top of each other, right sides out.

Sew a 1-inch circle in the middle of your circles.

Sew about 1/4 - 1/2 inch from the edge, with a zig-zag or serger, a double row of straight stitch, or even hand-stitching - 3/4 of the way around each circle.

Now fill with rice or whole oats, just enough without being bulky. The pad should still be able to lay flat.

Next add just a bit of your favourite spice or scent, or even dried flower petals - not too much.

Close up remaining 1/4 of circle. Repeat, using the second two layers.

Now make a second set of breast pads, because you are going to love these!

To use these pads: Simply heat or chill, then slip inside your bra.

Cooling comfort soothes sore new mama nipples and breasts.
 Store a set of breast pads in the freezer for cool comfort - especially helpful for use shortly before a feeding to slightly numb sore nipples - it will relieve that initial latching-on pain.

Or wear them to bring out flat and inverted nipples - which makes it easier for baby to get a good latch.

Gentle warmth opens clogged ducts and helps to increase milk production.
Warm up a set of breast pads in the microwave - start with 20 seconds and check to see if they are warm enough.  
(Don't make them too hot, or you can burn your delicate breast tissue.)
These are very comforting when used on sore nipples after a feeding, or to place over a plugged duct.

Image: On the Go: Inexpensive Baby Sling CarrierSince the beginning of time...
babies have been cradled inside a sling, next to their mother's breast. Babies feel mother's constant warmth and protection, next to her heart.

The most natural way to carry your little one is snuggled close to your heart, in cotton baby sling. Carry your baby in a large variety of positions, it is so simple to use.

Unique fold creates hammock effect to cradle newborn, nursing infant or sleeping child. Baby can lie down and sleep, or nurse in privacy with head and neck supported.

This is a very simple, yet economical, sling carrier. No buckles, straps, extra padding or adjustments to make. Strap doesn't dig in, cushions entire shoulder for comfort. Weight distributed on your shoulder, hip and across your back to reduce back fatigue and lessen sway back.

You'll need 45" wide fabric, with finished edges. Cut about 56" long for short, 60" for medium and 64" for tall parents. Place cut ends, right side together, and stitch at least 1" from the raw edge. Turn fabric over, and top-stitch on right-side 2 or 3 rows through all layers, for strength.

Fold sling in half length-wise once, and then again. You should end up with a sling roughly 10" x 26" (28")(30"). One long side will have a single fold, the other will have one fold and two finished edges. About one inch down from the seam, sew a 1" x 3" rectangle to hold the folds in place.

To use: Place sling over one shoulder and on opposite hip. Baby can ride on your hip inside two layers of sling, or you can open up the seat part to cover baby completely. If sling is too loose at baby's back, tighten fabric to hold baby upright and use a diaper pin to mark. Remove sling and sew up a dart at place marked with diaper pin.

A healthy baby is a happy baby. Stock Photo Credit: Carin
I used Dr. Jack Newman's recipe for the homemade version of All Purpose Nipple Ointment, which one of the labor and delivery nurses gave to me after she saw all the blisters.

Take equal parts Polysporin, Lotrimin, and Cortisone.

Mix in small batches and use after anywhere from 4 to all feedings in a day, remix every 3 to 4 days.

The Polysporin has to be brand name but the others can be generic.

It was a lifesaver and no need to find a compounding pharmacist to mix it.

Image: soaker butt by devaburger, on FlickrDo you have any old, shrunk and matted wool sweaters?

Then you can make two excellent diaper covers per sweater. The more matted the sweater - the more waterproof the covers!

To Make: Cut equal-sided triangles from old, shrunk and matted 100% wool sweaters, and zigzag-stitch edges to prevent unraveling (optional).

You can usually get two small "baby bum sweaters" from one adult sweater, or one large "baby bum sweater".

Sizing as follows:
Premie.....cut three sides of triangle by 10 inches (26cm)
Newborn....cut three sides of triangle by 12 inches (31cm)
Medium.....cut three sides of triangle by 16 inches (41cm)
Toddler....cut three sides of triangle by 20 inches (51cm)
Super......cut three sides of triangle by 24 inches (61cm)

Image: Cut along cutting lines for one baby bum sweater. Set aside the wrist-bands for use as leg bands on your baby bum sweaterPicture one: Cut along cutting lines (red dashes in picture) for one "baby bum sweater". Set aside the wrist-bands for use as leg bands on your "baby bum sweater".


Image: This is what your pattern should look like - using the sweater's waist band as the baby bum sweater waist band
Picture two: This is what your pattern should look like - using the sweater's waist band as the "baby bum sweater" waist band.


Image: Fold up the material towards the waist band. Bring waist-band sides together at frontPicture three: Fold up the material towards the waist band. Bring waist-band sides together at front.


Image: Sew along lines, about halfway along sides to form leg-holes. Be careful not to sew the leg-holes completely shut. You can adjust the leg hole openings, larger or smaller, to fit your baby's legsPicture four: Sew along lines, about halfway along sides to form leg-holes. Be careful not to sew the leg-holes completely shut. You can adjust the leg hole openings, larger or smaller, to fit your baby's legs.


Image: Your bum sweater should look something like this. Now take the wrist-bands you set aside earlier, and sew around the leg openings
Picture five: Your "bum sweater" should look something like this. Now take the wrist-bands you set aside earlier, and sew around the leg openings.You can thread a crochet tie through the waistband.


To use: Multi-layered or double diapers work best with these covers. Pull-on over diaper and tie in front.

TIP: Check out your local Goodwill, second-hand stores or other thrift stores for second-hand wool sweaters to use - very cheap!

I also am a crocheter, but no knitter. I haven't found a whole lot of patterns but have found a few, and I'm working on creating one myself. A good place to go is Ravelry.com -  a free site for knitters and crocheters.

I just found this site last week and I'm completely in love with it! The wool soaker group on Yahoo also has a few good patterns.

Here are a few others I found...

M30 Stain Remover - NEW 14 Oz. TubI know many of us like to go organic, but I have found the best thing for those yellowy stains on baby clothing, cloth diapers and other family clothing stains, is this product called M30 Stain Remover.

I used to be able to get a small jar of from our local Dollar Store. It's such a shame that they stopped carrying this product.

M30 gets out the worst stains on my husband's clothes (he's an iron worker and they get some nasty stuff on them) as well as that yellowy stuff on baby clothes.

I have saved a lot of "throwaways" from family members because of it!

You smear the stuff on really thick and let it sit for 15-30 minutes, then simply wash.

I usually wash the clothes again afterwards to get rid of anything that is left on it.

Thanks to Bevin for this Frugal Baby Tip!

M30 Stain Remover Now available from Amazon: M30 - Quickly removes grease, tar, ink, paint, varnish, grass stains, crayon marks, shoe polish, perspiration stains, chewing gum, tobacco gum, blood, cosmetics, pet stains, Barbecue sauce, gravy, chocolate, and many other stubborn soils and stains.

Happy Bath! by Bart Heird, on Flickr
I re-use an empty BabyGanics Foaming Hand Soap dispenser for all liquid baby soap that I buy, and I've found that it makes liquid soap go way further.

I find it a lot easier to shampoo baby's hair, or wash a slippery baby when I can squirt foam soap out of a dispenser.

I usually put an inch of liquid baby soap (Johnsons, Aveeno, etc.) in the dispenser, fill the rest of the bottle with water, give it a good shake, and it's ready to use.

BabyGanics Foaming Hand Soap, 8.45-Fluid Ounce - Safe for every generationI have also bought an empty Cuisipro foam pump dispenser from a kitchen/bath store and they work well too.

Many products now come in foam pump bottle styles and can be rinsed out and used for this purpose as well.

I've been saving lots of money by being able to stretch one bottle of liquid soap about 5 times the length of time as opposed to using the soap straight from the container.

Somebody unrolled all the toilet paper!Would you like to prevent your toddler or pets from unrolling the entire roll of toilet paper, and stuffing it into the toilet, or trailing it through the house?

Make your own toilet roll protector by recycling a plastic 2 litre pop bottle.Make your own toilet roll cover/protector by recycling a plastic 2 liter soda pop bottle.

Cut off the bottle top and bottom of the soda pop bottle, to form your toilet roll cover/protector.HOW TO MAKE:

Cut off the bottle top and bottom of the soda pop bottle, to form your toilet roll cover/protector. Measure your wall mount toilet paper roll holder to see what size you need - mine was 4 3/4 inches (12 cm) across.


TIP: you can use the leftover bottom to make fancy flower shaped ice cubes for punch - and the leftover top for a funnel for sand play!

Cut a slot in this toilet roll cover/protector, to allow you to pull the toilet paper through, about 1/4 inchCut a slot in this toilet roll cover/protector, to allow you to pull the toilet paper through, about 1/4 inch (0.64 cm) high and 4 inches (10 cm) across. If you are using double roll toilet paper, simply cut across completely - from one side to the other.

If you wish, cover all raw edges with plastic tape to match your decor - I only had  black on hand, but you can use any colour. If using double roll toilet paper, use a piece of plastic tape to tape across the open sides, attaching both sides, leaving an opening of about 1/4 inch (0.64 cm) or larger, for the toilet paper to hang out.

Remove your toilet roll and spindle from the wall mount, slide both inside your new toilet roll protector, and reattach the roll to the wall mount

This should at least slow your toddler or pets down!

Image: The best second hand shop in Oxford, by Iona McNab, on Flickr
I had a blast today! There's a small second hand children's store just down the street from me.

I decided to stop in and ask about cloth diapers/covers, and they showed me at least three bins of diapers and a basket full of covers.

The prices ranged from $1.29 for three liners, to $3.99 for a Kooshies...

I spent about fifteen dollars, and came home with a bag full enough to make a full load for my washer. I managed to pick up a couple of Indisposables, a nice (unnamed) prefold.

I mostly got All-in-ones though for nighttime and when my covers are in the wash.
