Right, so this week has been interesting to say the least! If you have been following me on social media you will by now be all too aware of the new Pampers influencer campaign designed to prove that their nappies are in fact the driest out there. Seems like the normal type of advert for single-use nappies right? Always trying to prove their nappies will keep a baby’s bum the driest. Yep, except that in this instance they decided to take their marketing steps too far by asking parents/influencers/bloggers to take 2 perfectly good nappies and soak them with water to really prove their point. Now, if that had been 1 nappy on a TV ad I doubt any of us would have batted an eyelid. I mean we’ve seen that most days on our screens for over 30 years now haven’t we? However, when they are asking 100’s of people to pour 200 ml of water on each of them to test which is drier on their cheeks all for a huge Instagram campaign, well that’s a different story… Continue reading “The Cheek Of Pampers: Why I’m Calling Them Out On Their #Cheektest”

It is Real Nappy Week 2019 and this has been my very first one as a cloth nappy parent. I’ve been buzzing over the fact that I have been able to get involved this year and I have never, ever had so many messages on social media before! I can see that this year is the year for further change and it could well be a huge turning point for environmental issues. So many people are being vocal about their swaps, sharing their eco stories and raising awareness in order to try and secure a better future for this planet.

In the last year I have been very active in talking about my eco-changes, explaining how I want to improve the way we live in order to help our environment and trying to raise awareness via my blog and social media, however, this eco way of thinking isn’t something that is entirely new to me; I was once a very passionate child and saving the planet was all I dreamt of.

Since we started using reusable nappies last June, I haven’t used a single disposable one. Nope, not when we went away for a weekend to Cornwall, not when William was in hospital with hand, foot and mouth and not even for swimming. Reusable all the way here now.
So, when somebody asked me if I was taking disposables to Florida with us I said no, of course not, yet they looked surprised Continue reading “You’re Taking Reusable Nappies Abroad With You??!!!”

The countdown is on to my holiday which means my mind is turning to planning my clothes, travel products and my skincare essentials. I don’t want to take too much as we kinda had a weight issue last year (the bags you understand, not me!) and I certainly don’t want to repeat that mistake. However, I do still want my luxury items and everything that will make me feel good. This is why I am so pleased that Carly from Beeutiful has travel sized pots of her magic skincare treats!

I feel that I have covered so much on cloth/reusable nappies but I haven’t really mentioned our wipes very much. I have touched on them in my other posts but I have just realised that these need a little explaining too as after I posted on my Instastories questions came flooding in. So here is my opinion (because I think you have to work out what works best for you) on everything you need to know about using reusable wipes.
