Moving on

Blogging has fallen to the back of my mind recently with everything else that’s going on. I mentioned in a few of the posts that I did get round to publishing recently that we’re moving cities soon, but unless you know me in real life and have seen me recently, you won’t know much more detail than that. So I

The making of a superhero (or 2)

This week, as well as Joel’s first birthday, has included the 31st October. Now to lots of people that means Halloween, but we’re not into celebrating something that originated in dark things, even though these days it’s just a vastly over commercialised festival that most people take part in without any intention of deliberately celebrating evil. Instead we like to join

Sew, sew, sew your nappies

Just recently I’ve been finding a real enthusiasm for sewing. I used to do quite a bit as a teenager, both in school as part of textiles GCSE and out of school, making a few clothes and bags for myself. It’s my love of cloth nappies that’s really got me into it again. When I figured out that I could

Nappyness reviews… Little Lamb bamboo

Description of nappy: This is a fitted nappy made from bamboo terry. It comes with a bamboo booster (sewn in for sizes 2 and 3, separate for size 1) and a fluffy fleece liner. It requires a separate waterproof wrap – Little Lamb make these too, or you could use another make, or a wool or fleece soaker at night.

Nappy-related sewing projects: wet/dry bag and fleece soakers

Just recently I’ve rediscovered just how much I love sewing. I did quite a lot as a teenager, but since having kids I haven’t had the sewing machine out much. There were a couple of nappy-related items that I thought would be very practical to have, and these became fun sewing projects to get my teeth into it again. I realised

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

The excitement of a level crossing – wot so funee?

Following on from last week’s funee post which featured the ‘nappy nippa‘, Andrew decided this week that it is actually a ‘nappy nipple’! Fortunately he hasn’t shouted that out anywhere other than home. Clearly there’s a lot of talk about cloth nappies and breastfeeding around here. So much so that he’s getting them mixed up. Oops! Another random thing he’s

Sewing projects – Photo of the week

I guess this is technically two photos of the week, but I couldn’t choose one over the other. This week I finished off two projects that I’ve been slowly gathering the stuff, time and energy for! I love sewing, but hardly get round to it these days. Ever since I’ve been into cloth nappies in a big way, and set

Nappyness meet-up number 2

For this meet-up I decided that a day, time and venue different from the 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
