  • I wish that I would have made one. I had my girls at 28 weeks though so I wouldn't have thought to do it that early regardless. You can buy the kits at Toys R Us for around $30 I think. Google it. I'm sure that you will find a kit or directions on how to make your own.

  • Yep, I did! You can get pre-plastered gauze strips at hobby stores such as Michaels for pretty cheap. Make sure you slather yourself with oil and/or wrap yourself in saran wrap first so it doesn't stick to you. Also, it is VERY messy so either lay down tons of newspaper/plastic or do it where it doesn't matter if you make a huge mess. Good luck!
