Platinum Baby Beehinds Retailer!

Added on 02 September 2020 in Baby Beehinds, Darlings Downunder   |   0 comments

We were very excited to be advised by Baby BeeHinds this month that we have been awarded Platinum Retailer status! Their assessment was based on our level of expertise when it comes to Baby BeeHinds products, great customer service, and stocking an extensive range of Baby BeeHinds. We must be one of the oldest continuous stockists of Baby Beehinds products in the world. When we started stocking Baby BeeHinds waaaayyyy back in 2005, they were the first Australian cloth nappy we stocked (we had ... READ MORE

Why you should consider the fitted nappy style (even though it needs a separate cover)

Added on 06 June 2020 in Darlings Downunder, General Info & Advice   |   0 comments

So many times people have said to me that they think the 'fitted' style of modern cloth nappy (which needs a separate cover over the top) would be less convenient than a cloth nappy that has the waterproof layer built in. But fitted nappies are awesome due to their superior containment and the ability to boost the absorbency by a LOT: ... READ MORE

How to stuff a pocket cloth nappy

Added on 29 May 2020 in Darlings Downunder, General Info & Advice   |   0 comments

Pocket nappies are awesome - the absorbent insert can be separated from the waterproof shell for faster drying, they're easy to boost with extra absorbency, and once assembled are really easy for people who aren't family with modern cloth nappies to use, as everything is cleanly tucked away inside the nappy.

Added on 23 May 2020 in Bubblebubs, Darlings Downunder, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

For a fitted nappy with sewn in elastic, though, while you will need a sewing machine, it's really not hard at all. Here, Vicki from Bubblebubs demonstrates how to replace the sewn in elastic in a fitted nappy like the Bubblebubs Bamboo Delight or Bam Bam fitted nappies. This will work for the Baby Beehinds fitted nappi... READ MORE
