Apologies for the lack of blog entries over the past few months but I've been busy having a baby! So far, little Fred has been dressed in hand-me-downs from his friends Sam and Leo, as well as his big sister, and lots of presents from generous family and friends.
Babies grow out of clothes so quickly that they are the ultimate clothes swap challenge. After just three months, he has generated two bags full of clothes - some of which are barely worn - ready to be passed on to friends and charity shops. And I am pleased to say, a good percentage are made from organic cotton. Fred is still wearing his Green Baby organic sleep suit (a gift from a kind fashion editor friend) and he has a wonderfully soft organic cotton blanket, a pair of Fairtrade Pima cotton booties, and he is looking really quite resplendent in his rainbow stripy top and slouchy pants from the Gap's new (and very savvy) organic cotton range.
More news to follout about Fred's progress in the world of ethical clothing (and I'll fill you in on the whole nappy dilemma too). But I just wanted to say I'm still here and back on the blog.
