When Buster Bear came to a Nappyness meet-up

On Wednesday we had another Nappyness meet-up, this time in town at Livingstones Cafe with the lovely toy corner which keeps toddlers amused for hours! It was a busy morning in the cafe with another big group of mums with babies, probably an NCT group as is often the case there. Our group was smaller, but just the right number

Nappyness meet-up number 2

For this meet-up I decided that a day, time and venue different from┬áthe first meet-up would be good, so that hopefully it would suit some people who couldn’t make the last one. Monday 10th June 11am-1pm at Living Stones Cafe in central Cambridge was what I went for. There is a play area for older babies and toddlers which Andrew

Nappyness meet-ups are launched!

On Thursday 30th May, a rather drizzly and damp morning for the time of year, my boys and I headed off in the car to Milton Country Park with a rather large bag of cloth nappies and leaflets in the boot. I was looking forward to meeting up with others who use or want to use cloth nappies, hoping that

If you’re nappy and you know it

I may have actually gone nappy mad! One of the competitions during Real/Cloth Nappy Week organised by The Great British Nappy Hunt was the Get Creative Video Competition. This was the brief: “Your challenge is to help us spread the cloth love, with a little bit of fun. We want you to come up with a cloth-nappy promoting video that

A fluffy epilogue

Just when I thought there wasn’t much more to know about cloth nappies, Real/Cloth Nappy Week came along and surprised me! After having used just one sort (fitted birth-to-potty with wraps that we were given as a gift) for Andrew as a baby, I did loads of online research last summer and got my head around all the different terminology

For the love of cloth! (part 2)

It’s still Real (or Cloth as I would call it) Nappy Week. Following on from my previous post, here is the second instalment of questions that I’ve been asked about cloth nappies, and my answers to them. I’m hoping the automatic publishing while we’re away hasn’t all gone pear-shaped (eek!). As I said previously, take what you like and leave

For the love of cloth! (part 1)

Happy Real Nappy Week! I know, I know, there’s an awareness week for everything these days, but this one is particularly close to my heart so I had to write something about it (and schedule it to post automatically in case I couldn’t get internet where we are on holiday this week – eek, hope the random computer in charge

Update on two cute little fluffy bottoms!

I said in my recent essential kit list post that I would write an update on how we’re finding covering two little bottoms with the cloth nappies that I added to our stash just before Joel was born. I thought I’d go through each type of nappy we have in turn, and describe the advantages and disadvantages that I’ve found

Expanding our cloth nappy stash

This post started out as a supposedly brief mention in my pregnancy diary post for last week, as I spent a lot of time last week finally making decisions on nappies so that we will have enough to dress a new little bum as well as Andrew’s ever growing toddler bum! But I soon realised that I had a lot

The wonderful world of cloth nappies

As it’s cloth nappy week 2012 this week (there seems to be an awareness week for everything these days!), I thought I’d squeeze in a quick post (note: I wrote that before I realisd how much I could go on about it…not such a quick post in the end!) about our experience of cloth nappies. I still don’t have loads
