lg THE LETHBRIDGE HERAID Monday, July 5, 1971 CAC booklet offers guidelines Expensive baby items not essential the about-to-bc-mother, shopping for a new baby presents a bewildering array of I choices. A buying guide on needs in a recent Canadian Consumer magazine suggests that it is not at all necessary to spend a great deal of money on things for your baby he will be as happy with clothing and equipment that meets min- imum standards as with the- most expensive. The main concern is to keep the baby comfortable and happy. More often than not a baby may be over-dressed rather than under dressed. Their heating system is better developed at birth than the cooling system and babies need more help to keep cool in hot weather than to keep warm at ordinary room temperature. Everything bought for the baby should be machine wash- able and dryahle and require no ironing. Clothing should be easy to put on and take off. Too much fuss in changing and Iressing a baby car; make him irritable. In your planning, the most basic'need is diapers. Consider fii'jt of all whether or not you will use a diaper service. This is much more expensive but it is certainly more convenient. It may be a worthwhile expen- diture depending on how much you value your time and wheth- er you already own the neces- sary laundry equipment. If you do decide in favor of the dia- per1 service, you will require one dozen diapers for an emer- gency supply. If you plan to do your own laundry, yen will need three to four dozen diapers. There are several fabrics to choose from: gauze is soft and easy to fold the small sizes for1 new- The Homemaker BY ELIZABETH BARTMAN District Home Economist Alberta Horl-Week at the!

Flannelete is cheaper and may be slightly more absorb- ent than gauze. Terry-towelling is used in England and some Canadian mothers find it salis- Paper1 is used for the very thick and disposable diapers. These far more expensive than cloth and probably are most useful when taking the baby on trips. When buying necessary safety pins, remember the ones with plastic heads are less safe than ordinary pins because they break easily. The pins with the steel head that slides up to unfasten and down to hold the pin shut are the most satisfactory. When it comes Io waterproof pants, the plastic ones are easier on the baby than rubber, but some babies develop a rash if they them continuously so it might be a good idea to buy just two pairs until you know your baby can wear them. These can be used for special occasions even if not all the time. The plastic should not harden if given proper care and this means mild soap, warm water, hand-washing and land drying with a towel or on line. Never put plastic pants hrough the regular wash cycle in your machine or through vringer. One of the handiest garments you could have for a baby is sleepers, which are also called be sufficient as basic equip- ment. Quality is important be- cause the suits are used con- stantly. The fabric should be stretchy and without collars. Babies have very short necks and sleepers with collars are uncomfortable. There are many fancy sleeper sets on the market but for the same price, the plain ones are usually better quality. Snap fasteners on sleepers should be closely spaced, especially in the crotch area, and should ex- tend all the way to the ankles. It is better if the snaps have loose, rather than a tight hold, and set into a special band of thick twill rather than just a fold of material because they tend to pull away from the lighter fabric. Examine the smaps carefully; the best ones have three separations in the holding rim rather than just one. Zippered sleepers certain- ly ars handy but at limes it can be difficult to slide a wet zipper. With the sleepers you may not need to buy shirts, but if you do decide to use a shirt for you baby, consider the stretchy fabric. The tied shirts are more fast that most mothers wish they had bought nothing but the 12-month size or' larger. The author of the article on baby's requirements suggests that you would lie well ad- vised to stick to the absolute minimum in any buying done before the birth of your baby since you don't know how big ic baby will be or what you ill receive as gifts. Many pur-! bases can be delayed for months and the delay will give ou time to decide your pre- er'ences and to spend grad- ally rather than ran your mdget.

Does the lady tell her age? You bet she does. I was bora in 1918. Figure it out. It was a very special day that July 4, in Sioux City, Iowa. Even from the beginning I wasn't con- tent to make an ordinary entrance. I was twins! And this is a most appropriate time to set a rumor to rest. I have been asked repeatedly if it is true that my twin (who writes as Dear Abby) and I do not speak The answer is "NO. It is not true." We do speak a lot. And often to each other. When you read this, we will be in Vienna, with our husbands, celebrating our joint birthday and wedding anniversary. We were married in a double wedding ceremony, July 2, 1939. For several years we have celebrated these occasions togeth- er, and the Good Lord willing, I hope we will do so for many years to come. ANN LANDERS DEAR ANN LANDERS: My husband and I gave a large party last month. It was what you might call a "Company Affair" 'he people we entertained (32 to be exact) were all from his office. Most of these couples were in our home for the first time. It will also be the last, I might add. Several guests got very drunk. The next morning I dis- covered three cigaret burns in my coffee table and someone burned a hole in my banquet cloth. I was busy all night following the drunks around. They ignored the coasters and set wet glasses on our lovely grand piano. The problem I'm writing about is this: Our phone bill ar- rived last week a whopping Several long-distance calls were made the night of the party. My husband had the calls traced and learned that one of our guests called Honolulu and three other cities, including Geneva, Switzer- land. He knows who it was because a certain woman em- ployee has relatives in those cities. What should be done? I am furious. So is my husband. High Dudgeon in High DEAR HIGH: Your husband should send the bill to UK woman. Circle the long-distance charges and attach a note saying. "The phone company didn't follow your instructions. These calls made the night of the party, were charged to OUR phone instead of yours." I wi DEAR ANN LANDERS: My story is too long to tell so ;ive you just a bare outline. I am in love with Jason. He is a married man with a family. I decided to go to his wife and ask her to let him go. I was sure she'd be willing because of the things Jason had told me about their marriage. To my surprise she said very little. I did most of the talking. Her only comment was, "Thank you for coming to see me. I have some serious thinking to do." The next night Jason and I were together. He didn't say one word about his wife. It soon became clear that she hadn't even mentioned my visit. I am in such a state of confusion I don't know what to do. What kind of a woman is she. anyway? What should ir.y next move be? Please advise me. I am losing my grip on reality. Two Worlds. DEAR B.T.W.: Jason's wife sounds like a smart cookie who is not about te kick her husband out so you can have him. I suspect she knows her better than you do and that this is not the first time he has strayed. As for your next move. I suggest it be immediate and as far away from this guy as possible. He's bad news. What is French kissing? Is k wrong? Who should set the necking limits UK boy or girl? Can a shotgun wedding succeed?
