Meet Our Guest: Real Nappies

Let’s meet Liz, the proud owner of Real Nappies:

Hi! My name’s Liz and we live in Auckland, New Zealand. We come over to sunny OZ at least 5 times a year to visit you lovely people at the various expos all over the country. We have 2 kids: Emily who is 10yrs and Joe, 7 years.

About Real Nappies…

Come and check out our site:
We specialize in modern cloth nappies: 100% cotton inner and an incredibly waterproof cover.
We wanted to take the guesswork out of cloth nappies: we did this by designing a simple, easy to use nappy, which we have put together in takeaway packs.
If you have ever wondered what an earth you need to buy, check out our bestselling Birth to Potty Pack, every nappy you will ever need until bubs is out of nappies.

Plus we are the ONLY cloth nappy company that guarantees our nappies to last through 2 babies! Wow!

When our son, Joe was born 7yrs ago in the UK we began using cloth nappies, we wanted to make cloth nappies more mainstream in Australia and NZ: hence we’ve taken away the frills and concentrated on what makes an awesome, good quality nappy that actually works and at a low cost to parents.

Why are we called Real Nappies?

Well because it says what we are, we’re the ‘real’ deal and we stand by our products. That’s why we’re used in Hospitals and Daycares and by thousands of parents all over the world!

Our Planet Matters!

I guess the image that will stay with me always is the mountain of used disposable nappies waiting to go to landfill. The thought that one tiny little baby will produce aprox 1 tonne of nappy waste is horrifying! One day my kids will probably have their own kids and they will have their own kids and yet the disposable nappies we throw away now will still be around even then, where are we going to put them all?
We have a beautiful planet – we want it to stay that way, for the sake of an extra 5 minutes a day, using cloth nappies really wasn’t a difficult decision to make!
Plus there’s something so much nicer about picking up your baby for a cuddle when they are wearing cloth rather than plastic!

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

1. Our Unique Guarantee Page – Find out about our unique 2 child guarantee.
2. Our ‘Specials’ Tab has some great deals and change frequently.
3. Our FAQ / Advice Tab is always worth a look for some great tips.
4. Our Blog Page has great articles and customer’s findings that are constantly updated.

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Spread A Deal – I love this site as it’s always got awesome baby bargains to check out daily, it’s NZ based but will also deliver to Australia. Definitely a site to bookmark!

2. Baby Center – great information site for new parents right up until preschool!

3. My Green Nappy – well of course as you are already reading this you know how great this site is lol!

Let’s talk more!

We’d love to hear from you, and would love to know what other products (not necessarily nappies) would you like to see us selling on Real Nappies that would make your life easier?

– Liz

White Nappies: 3 Reasons Why White Nappies Can Be Your Smartest Cloth Nappy Choice. (+ 1 More for FUN)

White Nappies are the quintessential image that comes to mind when we think of nappies, cloth nappies, disposable nappies – any sort. They are everywhere.

Let us have a look at 3 reasons why a white nappy is still a must have in your cloth nappy stash:

1. Re White Nappies: One colour, a common colour = less cost.

Some colours of nappies are more popular than others, and sell out more quickly. Unlike red, orange, green or pink nappies, it is likely you will always find white nappies in stock at your favourite nappy shops and retailers. White is such a stock standard colour in nappy fabric (all types of materials) that you may well find they are cheaper.

2. Re White Nappies: Baby’s clothing often covers their clothing…

When you have good old white nappies worn under clothes you are not covering up the beautiful design, embellishment, embroidery that you took so long to choose! During winter for instance a cheaper white nappy will be simply under clothes. Pricier prints and more boutique fabrics will cost more; but you may ask yourself what is the point if it isn’t nappy and t-shirt weather!

3. Re White Nappies: Easy to Clean and Sun…

You can whiten and brighten your white nappies simply by hanging them in the sun. Pretty nappies won’t fade in the UV light; stains will magically disappear. Solar power is the friend of the white nappy and allows you to be most environmentally friendly in it’s care.

What’s the +1 About White Nappies?

Naturally unbleached or white nappies are often made of cotton, hemp or bamboo – natural nappies that can be hand dyed to give them new life, as a fun craft activity for you, or to cover stains when the sun will no longer get them out! There are special dyes that are environmentally responsible and do not run when put in the wash.
