Special Needs Items

Remember I was telling you about a few of the Custom Orders I've been working on? Well, they are completed - all but one, and that one has been put on hold since the little baby they are for decided to arrive a little early.

Just over a month ago, I was contacted by a sweet lady who was interested in cloth diapers for her older special needs child. It has been a pleasure working with "A" to complete this order. I am sure that "A" and her daughter will be delighted when their package arrives.

She chose some Pocket Diapers, Fitted Diapers, All In One diapers, Inserts, and a few covers as well. This will be a very nice way to start using cloth diapers for them.

While I was working on this order, my oldest son, Garrett, age 7, was curious as to why I was making such large diapers. I took the time to explain to him that God makes each one of us Special, and that He chose to make this young lady extra special, and that her body doesn't work the same as our body works. In the end, he decided that she was getting some "really pretty diapers". He even helped me package the diapers today.

Custom Made Wool Wraps

Recently, I was contacted by a lady who wanted to place a custom order for some wool wraps - or diaper covers. I forwarded her some photos, and she chose the wool to be used. I am very pleased with the finished product.

Little Moose Diapers Recycled Wool Wraps are made from 100% wool items. Two layers of felted, recycled wool is used to make this diaper cover bullet proof. Lastin is sewn into the legs and across the back, fully enclosed so no elastic touches your little one's skin directly. Aplix 800 is used for closure, yielding an adjustable fit.

Why wool? Wool can absorb up to 30% of it's weight in moisture. Once lanolin has been added, the wool becomes even more 'waterproof'. Lanolin also helps soften the feel of the wool. I have been amazed at the softened feel wool takes on. Contrary to what some people will tell you, wool is very breathable, allowing air to circulate in and out of the diaper and cover, providing a healthier environment for your baby's bum.

I've been busy...

I have been busy working on a custom order for a local store...they ordered 15 diapers of each size - that's 60 diapers! THAT is alot of sewing....

And I've also been working on a few other orders, one for a Special Needs teen, as well as a few wool wrap orders, and another diaper order. Then today I received an order for two size 4 overnight pocket pullups...

What a blessing to see the orders coming in. When I began this business, I prayed that God would direct my paths, and that if it were something He meant for me to pursue, that He would bring me sales...and He is. I thank my Heavenly Father for this success.

Blessings, Hope

Great Cloth Diaper Hunt

Ever hear of the Great Cloth Diaper Hunt? Looking for an interesting way to shop lots of different stores (not just diaper stores?) Diaper Decisions sponsors a hunt for their diaper symbol - by going to various sites on the sponsor list, you search their sites for the diaper symbol, record your email address, and you may win. There are lots of fun prizes offered - but I warn you, it can become challenging and addicting!

Here's a link to Diaper Decisions where you'll find all the necessary details at Diaper Decisions.
