NEW! Pikapu Sleep Music CD

Added on 09 September 2014 in New arrivals, pikapu   |   0 comments

'Honey Keys' is a CD of gorgeous, relaxing music from a collaboration between pikapu and local Melbourne musician, Justin Hunter, who has composed and produced the calming tracks. Perfect for creating a calm and relaxed mood for bedtime or cuddles, this is also great background music for grownups - we love to listen to this CD while we're working!

Spence & Marie are here!

Added on 02 September 2014 in BumGenius, New arrivals   |   0 comments

  We're very excited that the latest BumGenius Limited Edition prints are here (and that we actually managed to get some!). BumGenius' limited editions are very popular and sell out extremely quickly. There were only limited numbers available to retailers and they sold out in about an hour - so we were very lucky! This restricted availability means that while we able to get both 'Spence' and 'Marie', we could only get Spence in 4.0 pocket nappies and Marie in Freetimes. They are expected t... READ MORE

Nappy versus Diaper

Added on 19 August 2014 in Darlings Downunder, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

Have you ever wondered why Americans say 'diaper' and we say 'nappy'? If you're a bit of a language nut like me, settle in for a history lesson. Otherwise, feel free to visit more interesting pages of our website! Following a discussion in an international Great Cloth Diaper Change organisers group, I started looking into the origin of the different words we use for what we put on our babies' bottoms, namely 'diaper' versus 'nappy'. Diaper is what they use in North America, and Nappy is t... READ MORE

How much work are cloth nappies really?

Added on 17 July 2014 in General Info & Advice, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

When thinking about choosing cloth nappies, a big consideration is how much extra time and effort they will take than disposables. You can come across a lot of negative comments (usually from people who don't use cloth) that give the impression that using reusable nappies involves being chained to your washing machine, spending hours up to your elbows in poo, drowning in a never ending cycle of wet nappies.   We asked some ordinary, busy mums - who actually use cloth nappies every day - how...
