The Clever Cactus CSP and Liners Review

*Gifted Products

I’ve been a fan of The Clever Cactus for a while now and have previously purchased several items from her online store including baby wipes and reusable water balloons. The funky prints and great eco-friendly ideas really stood out to me and, as you know, I love to support a small local business, so I was absolutely thrilled when Steph messaged asking if I would like to be a brand ambassador for her. This is the first of my reviews for her and we have kick-started our collaboration with me trying out her CSP (cloth sanitary pads) and liners range.

Hippynut Reusable Nappy Review

*Gifted Product

We made the switch to cloth nappies over 2 years ago now and I will still say that it was the best eco-friendly decision we have made to date. I am so happy that we have been using cloth full time since William was 6 months old and have completely moved away from disposables– I just wish I’d known about them with my first! Over the last couple of years, we have come to use a range of different nappy types and brands so when a brand new company comes to the table it is always an exciting time. It really does show that the reusable nappy industry is growing and that more and more parents are eager to become more eco-friendly. Continue reading “Hippynut Reusable Nappy Review”

How To Get A Reluctant Dad On Board With Cloth Nappies

When it comes to making that leap from disposable nappies to cloth nappies, you won’t be surprised to hear that the ones who usually instigate this change are the Mums. You also won’t be surprised to hear that getting Dad on board with cloth nappies can be quite tricky. And this isn’t because men don’t care as much about the environment or about not having chemicals next to their baby’s skin, it is usually just simply because they tend to tackle things in a slightly different way. Men like facts and figures, they like to see the costs, they want to know that the change is going to benefit them and be worthwhile in the long term.

Homeowners who want to have more privacy in their homes, should not look to batten down the hatches and draw the curtains. Instead, you should look outside, to your garden.
