Why use Reusable Nappies?

Baby

Add a comment By Joy

It can be easy to think that using reusable nappies is too hard, too much work, too tricky, and so on…

Disposable nappies sure are easier and quicker BUT do you know how many nappies per child end up in landfill? From birth to about 2.5 years old you are likely to use and throw away about 6,000 nappies! Roughly 60,000 babies are born every year in New Zealand. If they all use disposable nappies that is potentially 360 million nappies going to landfill. That is A LOT of nappies!

Disposable nappies cost you more!

Disposable nappies cost 30 cents each on average. That equates to about $1,800 spent on disposable nappies per child from birth to 2.5 years. In contrast, if you used reusable nappies exclusively, you would only require 20 nappies for the same period. The total cost would range from about $220 to $360 from our reuseable nappies available.

10 Essential products to help your Baby sleep!

Happy baby, Happy parents!

1. Grobag Sleeping Bag

Babies often wake from the cold, particularly once they are active enough to kick off blankets. The temperature between 3–5 am is significantly cooler than when you put your baby to bed.

If your baby is waking around 3–5am and can self settle at bedtime, then cold is highly likely to be the reason. Plus it is a very simple problem to resolve, so you can then see if there is any other cause for waking in the night.

We recommend you use a quality baby sleeping bag. This means you don't need blankets (which can be kicked off) and ensures your baby stays a comfortable temperature all night.

Potty Training Tips

Baby

Add a comment By Andi

As your little one grows beyond the need for nappies, you'll begin training them on potty and toilet use. We sat down with our friends at Huggies to get their advice on how best to start your child down the path of becoming one of the big kids…

Knowing when the time is right

Every child is different,so there’s really no ideal time to begin. The majority of children are ready sometime between 18 months and three years old. Some children will take months to toilet train, and others can go sailing right through.

The key to successful toilet training is timing. The more ready your child is the smoother the process will be. You know your child best but if your toddler shows at least two or three of the following signs on the next page, it’s probably time to start toilet training.
