My Green Nappy Discovering Modern Cloth Nappies and Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies

January 24, 2013

Meet Our Guest: Pepper Place – Modern Cloth Nappies and more!

Let’s Meet Kelly from Pepper Place:

Hi! My name is Kelly and I live in Tasmania (currently…..we move quite a bit!). I have a husband and five kids between 8 and 3. That’s their ages, not the only time in the day that I have them-so life is busy, but that’s just the way I like it. Something about me? I’m always experimenting with things. I always need a challenge, either in my hobbies (sewing, crochet, gardening, cooking) to our lifestyle (like living off-grid recently for 18 months, then travelling in a tent for nine months). The current (and long-term ongoing) project is increasing the amount of food we produce ourselves-recently adding meat, an interesting learning curve for former vegetarians.

About Pepper Place…

– My specialty is one-size nappies. I had my kids close, and had three kids in full-time nappies for a long time. I noticed there really wasn’t much difference in nappy sizes, and they all seemed to fit for much longer than the size recommendations, so after making sized fitteds to sell for a year or so I decided one-size was the way to go. Lots of others seem to share my view!
I give discounts for people with a Carers Card. Kids with special needs usually need to spend longer in nappies-my son with special needs was in day nappies until 3 and continues to wear a night nappy at 6. When you need so much more every saving counts.
– I’ve recently started selling tie-dyed kids clothes after turning my kids into rainbows for the past four years-although there’s not many pictures up yet, they’ll keep coming as I love doing it.

Our Planet Matters!

Oh dear, I’m a rampant greenie, where do I start?! If I had to pick just one thing to stop, it would be our silly, greedy use of resources. We’re gobbling up all of our non-renewable resources at a truly mind-boggling rate, mostly on silly things that we don’t need that don’t improve our quality of life -and very few people are planning for what we’re all going to do when it starts to run out.

When you visit Pepper Place, make sure you have a look at:

1. My tutorials, I love encouraging DIY-so much so that i’m releasing my patterns for home and licensed use in early 2013.
2. My product information – everything explained.

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Eden Seeds – as a keen gardener this is my favourite site to make orders from.
2. Milkwood Permaculture – I love what these guys do! From rocket stoves to inground aquaponics, there’s always something to get me thinking.
3. Auslan Signbank – with a partially deaf child Auslan was our natural choice for our home education second language…….and it’s so much fun!

A question from Kelly:

One-sized nappies or multi-sized nappies-what’s your preference and why?

The Convenient AIO Nappy… Why Do Mums Choose All in One Nappies?

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

The Convenient AIO Nappy… Why do Mums choose All in One Nappies?

All in One’s are a pretty popular ‘Gateway Nappy’ into the world of Modern Nappies. They are most like a disposable – often with velcro or touch tape as a fastener, they go on and off the baby with ease. Let’s find out more about the AIO nappy and why Mums like them…

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what they have to say:

The convenient AIO… Why do Mums choose All in One Nappies?

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

– Less of a learning curve as they are put on as easily as a disposable. Hence it is also a good choice for carers and babysitters unfamiliar with cloth.

– No need to pull apart inserts or boosters for laundry or reassemble the nappy.

Michelle from Cloth ‘n’ Craft:

Ease of use – just like a disposable to put on and take off … easy!

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

All in One’s are a convenience nappy, they don’t require stuffing, you don’t have to pull them apart to wash and dry and there’s no guessing which bits go together with which nappy.

They are most useful if you are time poor and have no time for nappy assembly, or if you have a baby in daycare or who spends days with the grandparents as they are nice and easy to put on and take off.

My top tip would be that if you live in a cold climate buy extras to use when the rest are drying.

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

I am an all in one fan. 1 answer – easy to use. No snapping, stuffing just put in on and go. A great style of nappy for Dad’s and carer’s.

Misty from Fluffybuns:

Easy as a disposable, but so much better for your bubba’s bum..

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

Value for money as the inserts are included in the nappy. Plus, they are very easy to use and quick to put on bubby.
