Cloth Nappies & Daycare

Thursday, 22 June 2017 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney


Being a working Mumma the time quickly came that my boys had to have a couple of days a week at Day Care so that I could devote some much needed time to this little biz of mine.

My initial approach to my Day Care centre about using cloth on my boys was full of uncertainty and concern though to which I was quite shocked. I suppose that Cloth Nappies were such an obvious choice for me but it turns out it wasn't such a simple choice for a day care provider.

Changing to reusable sanitary pads - a customer's experience

Thursday, 15 June 2017 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney


Do you automatically think "no way!" at the idea of reusable sanitary pads? We're talking about a modern invention here, nothing from the dark ages...

"I really want to share my story about using MamaMinx reusable sanitary pads. I wish I had found them years ago!" tells Cushie Tushies and MamaMinx customer, Laura Rolls-Jones.

Laura explains, "I saw them at my local maternity shop and thought, even if i just use these as a night time I will be saving money and about 5-6 pads from going in land fill. So I bought two boxes and went home and washed them. When my period came around I used them and they were great. I loved using them at night and was trying to get up enough confidence to use them through the day. I was not working the days my next period came, so I thought that I would give them a go while I was at home (as I didn’t feel confident going out or to work in them just yet). Well, they were great!"

Read on as Laura tells her full story about switching from disposable to reusable sanitary pads, her decision-making process and the results as she found them.

Sun for Stains – bring on the UV

Thursday, 8 June 2017 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

It’s about this time of year when I start to come out of hibernation. The weather has started to warm up and at the first sign of sunshine, I’m pulling out my shorts and tank tops, ready to take on the world!

(NB. All you people in the northern states, this is no time for gloating about how wonderful the sunshine has been at your place for the last month/2 months/onwards and so forth. I live in Southern Australia. Deeeep south. Yep, jokes about banjos are taken with a polite smile.)

The Energy Cost of Cloth Nappies

Thursday, 1 June 2017 12:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

Ever met someone who just couldn’t believe that cloth nappies were less energy intensive than disposable nappies?

I’m not sure where this mentality comes from because to me, less chemicals, less plastics and less waste seems like a pretty cut-and-closed win for cloth nappies over disposables!

Travelling with cloth nappies made easy with Cushie Tushies

Thursday, 25 May 2017 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

We’re at the time where we are looking towards the end of the year: summer; sun; beaches; holidays… too much talk like this and I’ll be hauling out the bikini, sliding on the shades and leaning back whilst telling my kids that yes, ice-cream is fine for dinner…

Thinking about holidays gets me thinking about traveling; which gets me thinking about packing; which gets me thinking about nappies. Nappies on holidays. Do you go cloth or do you go disposable?

Here we tell the story of several families' real life experiences of using cloth nappies whilst traveling with bub!
