Let’s meet Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Hi, I’m Kate and I’m a medical scientist, a wife & most importantly a Mummy! Whilst pregnant, working and living in Europe, I discovered Baba+Boo nappies and I was instantly hooked. I wanted to use modern cloth nappies (MCNs) with our daughter but didn’t want to pay a fortune for a product which I knew very little about and had no experience with.

I put my research skills into action; I ordered 10 nappies and discovered how affordable, economical, absorbent & stylish Baba+Boo nappies actually are. Since then, I have fallen in love with Baba+Boo’s nappies, I moved back to Australia and I set out on a mission to bring Baba+Boo to you!

Baba+Boo nappies receive brilliant reviews from independent parents and fantastic testimonials from customers. They have been produced under strict ethical codes of conduct and designed so customers can assure that the products their baby is wearing works just as well, if not better, as other leading brands.

About Bouncing Sprouts…

At Bouncing Sprouts we aim to bring you the best quality European products at affordable prices. We are passionate about cloth nappies, the environment & all things baby. My team and I are always on hand to offer advice about nappies, just give us a call, email us or join us on Facebook.

Our Planet Matters!

In Australia, up to 2.2 million disposable nappies are used daily (calculated on 1 child under the age of 2.5, wearing 6 disposable nappies each day). This equates to 734 kg of domestic waste per year. Disposable nappies contain toxins and plastics which need to be exposed to oxygen and sunlight to decompose, however, this take about 500 years to break down. This means that every disposable nappy, since their invention in 1961, sent to landfill is still there and will be for generations to come.

It is well known that traditional and modern cloth nappies (MCNs) avoid the problem of contributing to landfill and have a positive environmental impact. MCNs use 20 times less raw materials, 2 times less water and 3 times less energy to make. The carbon footprint for MCNs is dependent on conditions of washing and drying which can be anywhere between 81% -38% lower than disposable nappies depending on factors such as water temperature, use of dryers and use by subsequent children.

Next time you are at the supermarket bear in mind that it takes 6000 disposable nappies to get one child through birth to potty training but only 30 modern cloth nappies for the same period. Get on board and put the poo where it belongs – in the loo!
