Potty training and kids incontinence in older children made easy thanks to PottyPads by Snuggle Blanks

Potty Training. Hmm, these two words have the bad habit to usually stress parents. Why?  Maybe because we all want our children to start being independent as soon as possible. But realistically some few things should not be rushed and Potty training is one of them. For #1, as soon as we celebrated her first birthday, people around us were asking if she was clean during the day. I was a bit like this: ?!? She was definitely not ready at one year old, so it was far from any of my thoughts. People have a tendency to rush baby things and put a lot of pressure amongst parents and then by extension towards babies. Wow, slow sown a bit and appreciate what you have. All children grow at their own pace and never forget that a child cannot achieve something naturally and easily if he has not acquired the physical capacity to do it. So asking a one year old child to have a full control on his sphincters is just not “anatomically” logical. …

My Newborn and Maternity FRUGI Sales Haul!

I hope you can still enjoy it. Do you know FRUGI? Frugi is a UK brand that makes Organic clothes that are cut for clothes!

Review of the New ECOPIPO All in One Cloth diaper: A Snugly absorbent Nappy

Sunday morning, and End of the week. This week was about ECOPIPO Cloth Diapers and after sharing about the Ecopipo V2 pocket nappy, I will now share with you the last Nappy they have launched: The NEW AIO {All in One} Ecopipo Cloth Nappy. Launched last week, as soon as I saw it I wanted to try it. Why? I love AIO’s for the ease of use: convenience really. You just put them on your baby like a disposable, all ready to go an that is all : no stuffing required and when you put them into the wash, no un-stuffing {it can be very yucky if you have to do so :-p}. Well I have ordered mine and It has been the most difficult part. I love all the designs and because my daughters love Pink {a lot}, I was hesitating between Owls and Kittens. I did get both eventually and what a SUCCESS when they arrived. My Baba1 said: “Oh mummy can we put the Owls now please on Baba2? Then the kittens? …

Introducing Ecopipo Cloth Diapers: Review of the Ecopipo V2 Pocket Cloth nappy

Hello Cloth Bumming enthousiasts! This week, the brand I will be talking about is ECOPIPO. Why Ecopipo? Because I absolutely did not know about them until Real Nappy Week. Really, never heard this nappy name before or seen any! This is what I love with RNW, it gives you the opportunity to discover and try new brands at discounted price. How did I find Ecopipo? I was looking to Fill Your Pants website to take advantage of their RNW offers, when I discovered two new brands: Petit Lulu and Ecopipo! The prints of the Ecopipo range won the day and I decided to try them out. But as usual, I never buy a nappy  {or anything else in fact} without checking everywhere and trying to grasp utmost informations possible. And here we are , I found the Ecopipo UK website! Sometimes, I am not sure that it is a great thing that I find what I am looking for neither for my bank account or my Poor Little CB. About Ecopipo {Ectract of Ecopipo website} …

Close Parent Pop in Newborn Reusable Nappies Review

Special Close parent week, so today I will talk about Newborn Pop-ins reusable nappies. You might be wondering why? Are you willing to cloth bum your little Baba from birth? If yes, I am sorry to tell you that Birth to Potty {BTP} nappies won’t do the Job. I know that retailers/manufacturers are selling them pretending so but I will now tell you the truth: unless your little Baba weights at least 8lbs or more {4kgs+}, BTP won’t fit her. Tested and approved by myself: I learnt it the hard way unfortunately! I know that most people will not be willing to invest on Newborn nappies which I completely understand as Cloth nappies are quite expensive {Meaning punctually but not in long term}. Well this is when our Newborn pop-ins enter in the scene! For Baba2, not willing to do the same mistake than for Baba1, I have invested on some Newborn nappies {will show you later what I bought then and what I have added for Baba3}. But after reading a lot of reviews, seen a lot …

Close Parent Pop-in V2 New Generation Reusable Nappies Review

This week I want to talk to you about Pop-ins reusable nappies. Why? Simply because I love them and have used them a lot. I will be completely honest with you , when I was pregnant of Baba2 and started my search for great nappies , I have not heard at all about them. Maybe and surely because my main references were Blogs and Vlogs that are mainly US Based. So how did I hear about them? I am quite a shy lady and was really anxious about going to a nappucchinos { not everyone is at ease surrounded by strangers – being a Muslim with a veil does not help if you see what I mean}. When I meet new people, they always assume who I am , where I am from and how I live, which is quite annoying and challenging in the same time. I have my own history like any other woman on this earth and deserve a bit of empathy… Well, that is why I usually like blogging and emails as people …

Hi everyone! How are you doing with the Heatwave? Here we tried to enjoy it with a lot of family time by going in the park and the seaside, playing and laughing with our little ones! Sorry for not being able to post this earlier but was busy with my little family. So let’s talk about the trial pack: I received mine and wanted to share with you as it is quite an interesting Deal/Bargain. Delivery was fast and TotsBots customer service is spot on. They do answer to queries in a very good time and their answers are always appreciable! Just a reminder of what the pack is supposed to contain and the price: Tots Bots Trial pack. TRIAL PACK CONTENT I thought a video will be more helpful to see the nappies in action, so let’s see together the TOTS BOTS Trial pack: REVIEW PROS: the price: £23! you get 3 cloth nappies to try You can try a fleece liner and compare with disposable liners {I prefer fleece liners} I love the fact that you have a …

Review Plushpants Shop: Mystery Bundle

Real Nappy week is over but last week, few deals remained for the joy all of those who did not have funds. I have been seduced  by the Mystery Bundle proposed by Plushpants but was really afraid after my Clean Green Nappy Machine deception. Why to go for a mystery bundle? First: the price, you get 3 BTP {Birth To Potty} Brand new nappies for £39 plus extras Two: you get three different types of cloth nappies {great to try new ones if you are used to AIO -All In One- or other systems } Three: you get THREE different brands which is great to discover new ones Four:  Makes a great Gift for someone willing to try Cloth nappies! Five: love surprise and the Waw factor 🙂 After few thoughts, convincing myself that all not retailers are the same and surely beacause I totally trust Christine {owner of plushpants, Earthwise group}, I decided to place my order. Order placed on sunday evening, Second class Free shipping. I did not expect to receive my order before Thursday …

REVIEW: NOT impressed by Clean Green Nappy Machine and RNW Taster Set

Hello! Tuesday Today and Real Nappy Week Day #2 As promised, I will try to review a shop or nappy a day during this RNW. And today, will talk about The Clean Green Nappy Machine. I have an emotional attachment to this shop. My first order was placed in 2011, pregnant for the first time and first nappy experience. It was a consequent order: a full set of 15 Tots Bots Bamboozle size 1 and 3 wraps, some fleece liners for a total of £153.07, exactly. I do remember being a bit disappointed when I received my order because the order contained no gifts. I am a very fan of gifts even if they are small. I do feel that a good shop/customer service do add small bits {samples} when orders reach a certain amount even if they run a loyalty scheme. Because purely logical, the Loyalty scheme will not push me to come back when satisfaction will. So because it has not worked for us , I did not “come back”. Then I got …
