    Default What homemade baby items would you buy?

    Mods if this is breaking any rules please delete

    I'm thinking of starting to make homemade baby products and would like to know what people would like to buy for themselves and gifts. So far I am considering

    Teething necklaces (for mum's to wear)
    Teething toys
    Bibs and baprons
    Burb cloths
    baby shoes
    change mats
    Piddle pads/car seat protectors
    nappy covers
    Tag blankets/toys

    Would these items interest people and can you suggest other items.

    Pretty much all of them! I love seeing these stalls at the markets but would also love to be able to buy them online from them (etsy etc) but they're always so much pricier

    Thanks for the suggestion. I'd love to do them as I've made them for my pram and it came out well. The problem is having access to the different prams to get a pattern from them. Universal ones just never seem to fit properly.

    What price would you consider reasonable for one handmade with designer fabric?

    I would like someone to make dribble bibs, you know the triangular shaped ones. I love them and I can't really find them online.

    What do you think about nursing scarfs? Looks like an infinity scarf but opens out to act as a breastfeeding cover, then back into a scarf.

    Nursing covers that just look like scarfs are good. In nice lightweight breathable fabric. I'd totally be interested!
    Just a suggestion...could you buy some pram liners fit for popular models to get the size? It's a small investment I guess?? Otherwise ask a mother's group or something if you can measure up their prams in exchange for some small freebie?

    Dribble bibs and pads for carriers so teething bubs don't ruin them. They are expensive if you buy the brand name ones, however I found some on etsy which were cheaper, better looking and very well made. Dolls or toys that are handmade I am also a fan of (I prefer these over store bought plastic toys).
