Cloth in the bush

Lots of mums have questions around using cloth on holiday. It really is no different to home (unless you have a diaper sprayer then you just cannot wait to get home to use the sprayer). I have a bag designated for our cloth nappies (they do take up a bit of space). We use (exclusively) flats and covers on holiday as they  take up the least space in a bag are very easy to fold and pack dry the fastest - you can easily wash flats on holiday in the basin and they dry within an hour or 2 hanging on a bush somewhere. Do not forget the fleece liners! Honestly ladies, once babies start eating solids, poop gets rather...

Great review on our delicious newborn nappies

Newborn cloth can be daunting. So can having a newborn. So why not kill 2 birds with 1 stone and just dive in eh? Have a newborn and get yourself some newborn Pokkelokkie cloth nappies ladies :) Not only are our nappies the best quality, but we provide FULL support when baby arrives and we help you get going. You are not alone on this cloth journey! Our Dawn patrol day fitteds and our Sleepy dust night fitteds are definitely the easiest nappies to use and they are super thirsty. Dads especially love the day fitteds as they have a velcro closure. They really do mirror a disposable in terms of use and they dry super fast (winter is coming). ...

Embrace the experience

Yesterday while I was bathing my little one, I was thinking about how best to just embrace this experience. (I felt tired and both boys were crying. Washing hair is always a cryathon....). Everything in life is an experience right? Whether it`s doing a load of cloth laundry, hanging them up, doing a puzzle with your little human or holding a meeting with your business partners, it is all an experience fueled by an attitude behind (isnt it?). So if the attitude is negative, the experience will more than likely be negative. If you can open up to the experience and try to approach it with fresh eyes/attitudes, this can help change the whole experience and help you embrace it. If the...

Ms Rust is here

I get very excited about fabric colours... perhaps a little too much (or is there such a thing?). The combination of cloth nappies and a new fabric colour = a VERY excited girl over here. Just look at this colour!!! In case you hadn't seen... we released our brand new cotton fleece colour this week. Both our flats and Dawn patrol day fitteds can now be made to order in the delicious rust. It`s beautiful. Cotton fleece is a wonderful alternative to the more pricey hemp option and it works equally as well too. It is slightly thicker so not AS trim as hemp, however this isn`t a biggie. Flats are anyway SO trim it doesn't make a huge difference to...

The fleece liner

Over the last week my littlest human has not been well. Oh mamma`s it can be so tough. Sleep deprivation is a real, hard reality. It creeps up on you slowly... pretending it is not  there and then after the 6th or 7th night the cloud is heavy, grey and feels very dark. I changed a lot of cloth nappies over the last 5 days. We moved between disposables and cloth, not knowing which one would be better seeing as though it was only on for less than an hour at time. Part of me wanted him to be "dry" and "comfy" yet the other part couldn't bear the thought of the chemicals all over the already very sore little bum cheeks....
