Meet Our Guest: Little Para Pants

Little Para Pants

Let’s meet Mel, the proud owner of Little Para Pants:

Hi! I’m Mel and I live in Adelaide, where it’s hot and dry today. I have a husband Darrin, son Caleb who’s almost 4, and another son Ian who died at the age of two days. We have three cats and three chickens, and plan to add two more chickens to our brood soon!

Little Para Pants began when Caleb was about three months old. The terry squares we were using just weren’t enough for this heavy wetting boy. So I found some tutorials and patterns online and started to sew some Modern Cloth Nappies. As I got better at it, friends told me they were good enough to sell, so I set up the business. Since then I’ve expanded from one single pattern to several, and many cloth nappy accessories as well.

What bugs me most is the culture we live in, where we told we can’t live without things that we really don’t need! For instance, when preparing for a new baby, most people assume you need a cot, a pram, and a mountain of bottles. Yet for thousands of years before these items were invented, parents and babies got by just fine – in fact thrived – by cosleeping, babywearing, and breastfeeding.

When you visit Little Para Pants, make sure you have a look at…

1. One Fit Wonders –  This is a one-size-fits-most all-in-one nappy with pocket. Use it as is during the day, or add the trifold at night for a super absorbent nappy!
2. Swim Nappies –  Side snapping with PUL and fold-over elastic to minimise leaks
3. Cloth Sandwich Wraps – A velcro-fastening square to keep your sandwiches fresh!

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Joyous Birth – Australia’s home birth community
2. Scarlet Eve – Beautiful and comfortable cloth menstrual pads!
3. OZ Handmade – Your home for handmade things in Australia
