Cloth Nappy journey Part 1: Glossary and starter Set

Our journey into cloth nappies started when I discovered I was pregnant for the first time, five years ago. We decided that it will be great to make this little change and offer our baby what we think and believe is the best: a natural start into this world. I started my researches taking my future mums role very seriously only when I was 24 weeks pregnant because before I was convinced it was irrelevant {you know these myths around pregnancy}. My first ever step was to understand all the kind of cloth nappies you can find around. Real Nappies GLOSSARY Here are some basics that might be helpful for you too if you are starting your journey. I tried to keep things simple. ALL IN ONE Nappies {AIO}: these cloth nappies are just like disposables. They are the easiest and most expensive but not always the more efficient. You really have only one part to your nappy. Sometimes to help with the drying time and for extra boosting {= to add more absorbency} , …

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 …

10 Reasons why using Real nappies is NOT posh!

Hi everyone! Few days ago, I was on facebook and in my feeds see someone talking about real nappies. This lovely blogger was in shock after reading in a forum a mum telling that “using cloth nappies is posh!” Here is her article: “Are cloth nappies posh now?” Waw what a shock! In fact not so chocking to be honest. What “Posh”means for me? It means that it is not affordable that common people cannot buy them. I do agree if you decide to buy the most expensive nappies out there and buy any new designs that coming out, yes, it is for sure, POSH! But who needs to buy a nappy at £30? When I first wanted to use real nappies , it was 5 years ago for my first daughter. At this time, we did not really have a comfortable budget {not to say that we were really tight} so during my pregnancy, I tried my best to find the best deal. And to be honest, I really thought that strangely “using cloth nappies” is not …
