Making any switch from something which you may have always deemed as convenient to something completely new may seem very daunting and confusing. Of course it does, we are all so used to our lifestyles being made “simple” by large companies and we are programmed to throw things away when they are dirty because it has been drummed into us that germs are bad. So, when we bring in a reusable product, something that can be washed and used over and over again, an item that is as simple as a flannel and water, we for some reason overthink it.

In my bid to make my life far more eco-friendly, I am always on the lookout for anything that will help our planet. Whether that is making a small swap like using bars of soap, reusing shopping bags, taking my own bottled water out or bigger things like switching to cloth nappies and reusable wipes, every small change is for the better. One area that is always going to be tough is not always buying new. I have made the step towards checking pre-loved sites more and learning which charity shops have the best turnover of stock but there will always be items that I am not willing to purchase secondhand or which may not be available. With this in mind, I have to learn to shop as eco-friendly as I can, Continue reading “Review | National Geographic Raptor Dino Recycled Bedding Set”
*Gifted Reusable Nappies
Reusable nappies have become a passion of mine (something you may have noticed!) Since making the swap in June last year I have gradually built up a stash big enough to wave goodbye to single-use nappies for good, I have talked about the ease of the switch and have tried my best to spread the word that reusable nappies are the way forward for our environment. However, the benefits of changing aren’t all about being eco-friendly. We have discovered that William is far more comfortable in reusables, that he never gets nappy rash and that we are saving ourselves a lot of money in long-run. If that isn’t enough to tempt you just yet, perhaps the designs will?! Have you SEEN today’s reusable nappies? Continue reading “Review | New Elements Easyfit Reusable Nappies by Totsbots”
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. Continue reading “Busting Those Cloth Nappy Myths”
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??!!!”
I feel that I have covered so much on cloth/reusable nappies but I haven’t really mentioned our reusable 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.
