This week (15th to 21st April) is Real Nappy Week 2013. A yearly event, Real Nappy Week is dedicated to raising the profile of cloth nappies to new parents, prospective parents, stubborn old parents who thought disposables were much of a muchness (this was me with my first!)
Cloth nappies are a popular choice for work at home mums — both making and selling — and one cloth lover Ann Bruce tells us about how she got into cloth:
I started using real nappies when my daughter, Emily, was born, in order to save money. My favourite was a Charlie Banana nappy with a really cute butterfly pattern on it (pictured right), but it seemed to be a jinxed nappy, and she would poo within minutes of it going on. Emily’s 2 years old now, and only wears a nappy at night. Believe it or not, there’s a bit of me that misses the nappies! I love the GroVia all-in-2, and if I were to have another baby (no chance – husband says ‘no way!’), I’d be tempted to treat myself to some of these.
I’m an agent for BabyKind. I live in Windermere, but sell to mums and dads all over South Cumbria. I supply a huge range of washables: all-in-ones, pocket nappies, shaped two-part, from brands including Tots Bots, GroVia, Blueberry and Bumgenius. I also supply washable breastpads, wet bags, washable wipes and gentle toiletries. Anything you see on the BabyKind website, but when you order through me, the postage is free.
For Real Nappy Week, BabyKind is offering a 10% discount off everything. I’m doing a Nappy Event at Boogles and Bump in Ulverston on Saturday 20th 10-1pm, at which I’m giving a 20% discount, so it’s worth popping along to grab some nappy bargains. I also accept Cumbria County Council’s real nappy vouchers.
You can find more information about Ann Bruce and her offers and events through the Ann Bruce, BabyKind washable nappy agent facebook page. Buy nappies through Ann to support WAHMs this Real Nappy Week and help the environment too!
