This is a little flying visit from me as it’s not only the start of Real Nappy Week 2013 (very exciting stuff!) but also the start of a new school term, which means that I’m stupidly busy! I’ve got a week of getting back into the swing of things with my lovely classes as well as a week of meeting lots of lovely mummies and their cloth-bummed (or wannabe cloth-bummed) babies.
It’s going to be a lot of fun!
So, have you registered for The Great British Nappy Hunt yet? If you haven’t, then you need to get your bum in gear and head on over to their site NOW and get hunting asap as the first hunt closes at 9pm tonight. You’ll be emailed a new hunt clue tomorrow morning if you miss out on this one, so don’t fret too much!
The hunt takes you around different cloth retailer websites each day where you have to search for Billy and find out some information about cloth nappies that you may (or may not have) known before. For new cloth bum mummies, it’s a great way to gather information and for us seasoned pros, there’s still lots to discover and find out! It can be a little tricky at times, but if you go to the Great British Nappy Hunt’s Facebook page you can get a lot of helpful little hints and tips (plus some massively stonkingly HUGE clues!)
There’s also a fantastic game of Clothopoly to get involved with, which (I have to be honest) I’ve not had the time to look at as I’ve only really just got in from work and am stopping for two seconds to type this up for you!
Finally – today, the theme of cloth nappy week is Real Choice. Now, when I was a little cloth-bummed baby, there wasn’t really much of an option at all for parents. You had your bog-standard terry nappy, a choice of coloured tips of nappy pins and some plastic pants. My mum said that she eventually got hold of some pink pants, but that was about it!
Well, the amazing thing about cloth nappies now is that they are incredible. There’s just many choices and you can really accessorise your baby’s bum however you feel fit! If you look back at my older blog posts (look up January posts from 2012) you’ll be able to read about all the different types of nappies that you can get, plus if you take part in The Great British Nappy Hunt , you’ll very quickly see a whole host of wonderful, bright, vibrant and funky nappies that you’ll just HAVE to have.
You’ve been warned!
