Sorry the posts have been pretty baby-heavy this week, but I’m pretty baby-heavy this week.
I’ve been pretty good so far at not spoiling the kid before it even gets here. Most of what I’ve bought for the kid has been used, gifted, borrowed or on sale. I’ve been pretty proud of myself for doing so well and resisting the urge to splurge. (This is always easier to do when you don’t have any money in the first place)
This is why I managed to rationalize one good splurge.
This is the Westcoast Baby Bamboo Kimono. It’s the cutest thing ever.
Allow me to explain why this is a practical piece of clothing. When I first saw it, I didn’t think it was that great either. Sure it’s super-duper soft (I love bamboo) but beyond that, it seemed a little unecessary.
What makes it so special is that not only is it open at the bottom (for super quick and easy diaper changes when they’re teeny-tiny) and super soft and cozy (bamboo naturally wicks moisture away to keep baby dry and comfortable) but the easy open tie front allows you to have that oh so important skin to skin contact with the baby while they’re still clothed, making nursing a snap.
Oh, and there’s an ultra-cute matching hat…
For even more cuteness, just add baby!
