DIY Baby Drool Scarf

Baby R is now 5 months old and drooling up a storm. Her two front top teeth are just breaking through. I can't see them yet but I can sure feel them. And so can she, apparently, because she is soaking everything below the neckline in about 5 minutes.


See, by the time I snapped a shot, the scarf was half drenched in drool. So I'm going to be making a lot more of these. Here's the action shot. Nice big drool....


I have been using old shirts to make these. Great way to upcycle. They are super easy to make, great beginner project. It's just a triangle of fabric with snaps in the back. I'm already in the process of making 3 more, so I'll try to get a pattern and instructions made to share as well!



As a side note, I'm going to share some personal info for the sake of other mothers out there. You may or may not be able to see that she has a red rash on her forehead and around her eyes. That, my friends, is called neonatal lupus. It is rare, so your pediatrician or even your dermatologist may not recognize it for what it is. A pediatric dermatologist might, if they've seen it before. Two of my kids have had this. Babies will outgrow it around 6 months old, but you should have their heart and liver checked if your baby has this. Fortunately my 2 kids that have had it have been fine and just had to wait out the rash. And it doesn't seem to bother them, so that's also good news. Hopefully none of you will need this information, but since it's hard to get a good diagnosis from medical professionals, I wanted to share. Pin It

Great Idea! Hannah is always soaked. Maybe I'll make one if life ever gets normal. You can hardly see Ruby's rash in those pictures. Miss you!
