I had always dreamed of being a mother. As a little girl, I would play with tea sets and baby food jars, imagining all the delicious things I would cook for my little family. As I got older, I would sit and watch my friends’ babies nap, mesmerized by their gentle rhythms. When I was in my early twenties, I finally decided to make the leap and became a mother myself. But it wasn’t until I held my son for the first time that I truly felt like myself again. I didn’t feel empty or lacking, just complete. It was only then that I knew what my purpose in life was, and that I would serve my son by being the best mother I could be.
It’s been over a year since I last held my son, Henry, and this longing has been steadily growing. Now that he’s 22 months old, I can barely contain my excitement at the prospect of getting pregnant again. In fact, I can’t stop thinking about having another child. My husband, Joe, is also thrilled, and we’ve been trying to find the right time to expand our family.
The Appeal Of A Prewashed Baby Bodysuit
One of the things that drew us to Henry is his beautifully soft, prewashed baby bodysuit. It’s what’s known as a natural baby garment, meaning the materials and the pattern are predominantly organic. Made in a sustainable way and designed to gently hug your baby’s neck as they sleep, it’s a win-win for both you and your baby. This kind of fabric is far more comfortable and better for the baby’s skin than other synthetic fabrics, which can lead to skin issues later in life. Organic materials are often more breathable too, preventing the growth of bacteria or fungus.
A Soft Touch On The Bum
Along with the prewashed baby bodysuit, another thing that has become sort of a hallmark of Henry’s sleep clothing is the soft, rough fabric on the bum. Essentially, this is a combination of hemp and super soft organic cotton, which are brushed on the outside to create a plush, velvet-like texture. While it might look like a new mom’s best friend, the bum slip is actually a very utilitarian piece of clothing. In the early 1900s, nannies would wear them under dresses to stop baby from getting overheated on hot summer days, as well as while car touring to keep their little ones clean from any potential road burns. Today, the humble bum slip continues to be used for its original purpose, but now parents can also use it as a comfortable sleep garment for their child. It doesn’t get much more practical than that.
An Organic Option
Organic cotton isn’t just found in baby wear, either. In fact, it’s a popular choice when selecting bed sheets and towels because of its natural ability to absorb liquid and its cooling properties. In addition to being environmentally conscious, choosing organic materials allows you to remain proactive about preventing certain illnesses in yourself and your baby. For instance, you can rest assured that pesticides aren’t being sprayed on the crops used to make your organic bed sheets, so you and your family aren’t at risk of exposure to harmful substances. Pesticides have been known to cause brain disorders, endocrine system problems, and even cancer. While these might not seem like issues you want to tackle as a parent, it’s better to be safe than sorry.
A Symbol Of Maturity
Last but not least, let’s not forget about the rose-covered thorns. As a symbol of beauty and femininity, a rose-covered thorns is definitely a timeless symbol of motherhood. This is because the thorns are a subtle reminder of the plant’s protective qualities, while the sweet, gentle flowers are a symbol of feminine softness and allure. So whether you choose to display this symbol on lingerie, camisoles, or nightgowns, it will always be associated with elegance and sophistication.
At the end of the day, it’s not just about the practical aspects of baby gear. There’s so much more to be said about parenting, and it would be a shame to limit yourself to only buying what’s necessary. As a parent, you want to do everything you can to promote a healthy and happy lifestyle for your baby. When you consider all these factors, it’s easy to understand why so many parents have fallen in love with Henry.
