What to do with stained baby clothes?

Chop it up and make a new outfit!

First sewing project with NiNi clothes. Onesie hybrid with Mickey Mouse inspired buttons :)
This is my first sewing project with recycled NiNi clothes. A onesie hybrid with Mickey Mouse inspired buttons :). This project gave me the idea to cut up my own clothes and make stuff for him instead of buying new things, using his existing wardrobe as the base pattern. Baby clothes stress me out, such limited time usage and then you wonder everyday if you should save it in case another baby comes along.  I won't feel bad about reworking the stained clothes or my clothes though, so this is the start to some fun times at the sewing machine. Naps and grandparent babysitters permitting.

Fresh arugula pizza

Arugula from my Grandma's garden, prosciutto, feta, fresh mozzarella, olive oil, grated asiago cheese, and a spritz of orange juice (tossed with the arugula, didn't have any lemon).

Warning: Possible link to Pampers Stay Dry and allergic reaction?

After 2-3 uses my little one developed this rash all over his back. As soon as we noticed we switched to another diaper we had on hand (swaddlers?) and a couple of cloth diapers and the rash started clearing up within a few hours. I suspect the blue dye. I'm posting this in case someone else runs into the same issue.  We were using Honest Co. and Babyganics before this without any problems and are now trying Earth's Best, so far so good.


First baby food! Sweet potato.

What other first veggies should I try?
