Bassinet Sheets?

This is the bassinet someone gave us, and I need to get sheets for it. But when I look at the various sheet options online, they don’t give a full picture of the sheets so I can’t see what shape they are. They have the dimensions for length and width, but they don’t say what shape mattress they’ll fit. So how do you find sheets that are the shape you need? Do you go by brand, or do they come standard? 
Almost all the bassinets I’ve seen in stores have oval shaped mattresses, so I’d assume it’d be pretty easy to get oval sheets, but I just wanted to ask before I buy anything. 

We bought a car seat! We decide on the graco snugride 40. I really like it because it keeps the child rear facing up to 40lbs and 40inches which is longer than the other ones I was looking at.

I did some yoga today

I found some videos for prenatal yoga online and I want to use it as a way to get stronger and prep my body for birth. It was harder than it looks. I’m sooo out of shape and I hate it. I’ve always worked out and been very fit, but it’s been hard to maintain that over the course of this pregnancy because of how sick I’ve been. But for the last week I’ve hardly been dizzy so I really want to use this time to try to physically better myself. I’m hoping I’ll continue to feel this good for the last 9 weeks of my pregnancy.
Does anyone have any suggestions for good prenatal yoga videos?

I saw this cow painting at the store yesterday :)

The other day I was making pancakes and I tried to make shapes and animals. The one on the right was supposed to be a bunny, but it doesn’t really look like it..

Cloth diaper mamas: what's the best way to clean prefolds?.

delightsanddiscomforts:

Someone gave me a bunch of prefolds that she used with her son. She had them all in a big plastic container so they have a slight odor to them. I’m new to all of this so I’m feeling a little lost with how to get them smelling clean again. I’m planning in running them through the wash a couple…

put them in a pot of boiling water for a bit works to get whatever build up is in them out!
And then wash them with a bit of detergent/oxy and keep rinsing them until the water is no longer sudsy.
Are you apart of any cloth diapering/crunchy groups on Facebook??

Thanks for the advice! Did you mean to machine wash them or hand wash them? I just want to make sure I understood correctly :)
I’m not apart of any Facebook groups yet, but I need to start lol I’m sure they’re a good place to find tips and advice

I’m planning on running them through the wash a couple times, but I was wondering if anyone had any other suggestions.
I know people resell and reuse cloth diapers so I don’t want to throw them away. They’ll save us a lot of money. But I have to get them to smell better.
Unfortunately I live in a neighborhood and we’re not allowed to have clothes lines so I can’t hang them outside right now. But the next time I go visit my mom who lives in the country, I’m going to take them all with me so I can wash them again and hang them on her line.
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated! :)
