Thank you for sharing your story I too do recommend having baby photo-shoot as a first-time parent. Not only is a memory created but it is also a fun interactive experience for families.

  6. I was just looking at these the other day for my baby as well and they seem adorable… I’m still a bit uncomfortable about the material since wool is sometimes itchy for my skin so as an expecting mom I have to safe guard my baby.
    But I’ll be doing a purchase to see if the quality is as great as you say.

    1. I certainly understand your concern about the wool material. I would suggest using a different type of materials used to knit. You can try the French terry fabric which is usually made from cotton.

      Thank you for stopping by, I hope to see you around.
