My DS started school this year and we bought the uniform. However, he has come home with a skin rash after wearing his poly/cotton school shirt (we washed it before wear). We think the itchy rash is from sweating, as he usually only wears pure cotton.
Does anyone know where we can buy a pure cotton short sleeve white collar shirt? I've looked everywhere I can think of, but they are all a blend.
Poor baby - I can't wear man made materials, some people just don't get it.... awful when they are the uniform police!
DP copped a mouthful at his service club this week when the 'social club organiser' was trying to get him to order a shirt for me as well "Nah mate, Countrymel couldn't wear one, she can't wear that kind of material.." was greeted with a "What a load of bullsh*t!"
Thanks so much for the replies and having a look for me. I did look on the internet but also only found long sleeved ones from the UK. I'll look again more closely.
As it is only my DS's first year at school, he has never had to wear a poly/cotton blend before (pure cotton was advised by our GP when he was younger, as he has had eczema in the past). I"m just amazed that it is so difficult to find pure cotton school shirts! Hopefully I can at least find one o/s! The singlet idea is good. Thanks for that!
With the cooler weather upon us, here is a collection of easy winter inspired cut, sew, knit crafts that you can do with the kids. There are glove monsters, no-sew scarfs, and sock snowmen. Winter is a great time to get crafting.
Fidgets and other sensory hand held toys are a great way to encourage attention and concentration. We all love to rock on a chair and click our pens or chew gum to stay alert and attentive, so why not let children have functional and socially acceptable fidgets too, to help them learn and keep them focused on learning.
