Thanks all for your lovely comments. He is lovely!
In selfsufficientish news, we are sticking to our guns with just using water and cotton wool, no baby wipes for us, but are using biodegradable disposable nappies at the moment because the washable ones are rubbing on his cord, once the cord is gone we are switching over because they seem much more absorbent.
Poor baby does look like he is in a strait jacket! He is still being swamped by his baby grows!
