Good tip, it's like you know me, I do tend to overthink things ;)~ BREATH AMY~They didn't charge you extra for the bugs? What a nice surprise!

take your time and don't think so much. don't get obsessive because it's very easy for ANYONE to get. even dreadheads.

100% wool pillow cases help no matter what. try a 100% wool beanie and see for yourself.'

whatever you do, wash the treasures you recover from thrift stores and garage sales. one time I thought I "scored" a wool tam but I found a tam full of bed bug husks

make em smell nice


Dread Maintenance

Shame you never got a response to this asI was wondering that myself. Oil floats on water so I would assume just oil but my baby dreads would likely slip out if I went slapping oils straight on them -scary :( j

Johnny Barnas said:

ill definatly try out some essential oils

got a local organic market with every oil imaginable

do i mix the oils with water in a spray bottle? or just put the oil straight on my dreads or what?

There's been a 'while between drinks' for me Heather. My eldest boy is turning 11 soon and my next is 4 months so I appreciate how quick they grow and an cherishing every day, every smile, every cuddle this time around even more. I'm going to try sewing a woolen pillow case out of a thrift sweater rather than wasting Grans time knitting one if it will just end up scratching my face and giving me a rash. Fingers crossed it doesn't bother me and my hair goes crazy knotty :)

Heather said:
co-sleeping = happy baby! i so miss my kids being little. i loved watching them sleep. anyway, i would just use an old sweater and cut off the sleeves. i tried this but my skin is so sensitive that i woke up with a rash on my face. now i just wear a wool hat to bed whenever i feel i need it.

Let me guess the near brake was from a headbutt, correct? My eldest son gave me a cracker like that once as well!I think the best 'bang for buck' solution is to buy 1 or 2 second hand sweaters and sewing a case out of them as you suggested. Ta X

Suzanne Beattie said:

Cosleeping = awesome. Much respect to Grandma knitting you a case :) I think you're right on with the concern over sleeves etc. Best to keep things simple. If the knitted pillowcase doesn't work out or you get impatient I guess you could even take an old/thrift sweater and cut sleeves off and stitch up the gaps? xXx

Luv ya SE. There are certain risks that people can easily educate themselves on (same with crib sleeping).Also I almost had my nose broken by my fidgety sleeping toddler..ouch haha:D Peace xxx

True, true Angie an op shop sweater would probably be a better/cheaper option than buying wool at the moment. Any excuse for a trawl at the local Op Shop, may just have to head over for a snoop in the morning ;) thanx a bunch gal

Angie Glaze said:
Yay for cosleeping :) Yes, I believe the wool on your pillow at night helps alot...definitely in the beginning but you certainly wouldn't need to stop once your dreadies are mature.I just buy a 100% wool sweater at a thrift store and maybe even get a youth or young adult size, and I fold the arms of the sweater inside and slip my pillow inside the sweater from the waistline up....so it actually fits the pillow pretty tight without any looseness. I just look for 100% wool...nothing synthetic.

Thanx for the quick response - as usual :)I have considered all my options and take my boys safety very seriously. I don't use drugs or drink at the moment and am very tuned into my baby. Co sleeping works best for our family, plus bub and I are happiest when snuggling. I appreciate that you care enough to express your concern tho.

soaringeagle said:

i think any wools good

umm

if your paranoid about a sleeve you should also be paranoid aboutr an arm or a leg or a whole body..theres risks and advantages to cosleeping and u just might want to concider the issue carefully

and wools good all the time thru the whole process
