For sweat on the back

Japanese red basil drink
Today I went to the doctor. Now I'm on 33th week and we're doing very well.

I made these pads for the back for Tomato(my baby).

I don't know how to call it in English... It's famous in Japan and I made them with a pattern of a crafter's blog.

I made it with cotton double gauze(double layer) and a little piece of cotton for the collar.
I'll put it in the back of the baby leaving the collar outside. And after the baby sweat a lot, I can remove it just pulling the collar.

And I sewed some new bibs for her too.

I have only a small piece of cotton waffle fabric so I should have put other cotton.

Last weekend I went to Tokyo to see my friends of high school.
They gave me a set of this glass as a wedding gift. The red drink inside is what I made with Japanese red basil. It's very good for me because it has much Calcium, Kalium, Vitamin etc...

It's getting hotter and hotter these days, but I move well and sew more items for my baby (* v *)!!!!
See you!

I love how the internet gives you glimpse into how other countries do things. In this country (UK)we wouldn't think of making pads to absorb the sweat from a baby's back, because usually we have very mild and short Summers. This year though, I can imagine lots of British mother's wanting to adopt this Japanese custom as we are having one of our hottest Summer's in years.

I love all your craft projects and seeing all your preparations for your "tomato". Thank you for sharing with us.

Glad to know you're fine!!!

That's awesome. I never thought about the baby's back sweating. I always thought of the baby's vomit on my back. Lol. Here in Georgia, most people just dress the babies in light clothes to keep them cool like a simple tee shirt and diaper/romper.
However the cloth for the babies' back is a fine idea.

Hello Mai,
I see that Japanese share a lot of similarity in tradition as the Chinese. I am very familiar with the "sweat absorbant cape" you just made.. i had those myself as a child haha... in fact all the babies up to 3-4 years old wear them, and Malaysia being such a warm country. It's like a traditional thing our parents pass down to us.
