HELP! My nappies stink!

Thursday, 9 March 2017 12:52:00 PM Australia/Sydney

As with any nappy care issue, the best way to deal with a problem is to not actually encounter it! And so it is with smelly nappies.

We’ve discovered that a stinky nappy is usually caused by one of three culprits. So let’s take a look at each one and how to prevent it from causing your nappies to smell.

And as far as you are aware everything in your home, your family and your nappies is fine until one day you spot them and your heart may skip a beat: the little black dots that are the telltale sign of mould in your boosters.  Nooooooooo!

How to combat a Bacterial skin infection

Thursday, 23 February 2017 12:59:00 PM Australia/Sydney

Something Kristy Mead never imagined having to deal with as a mum with a baby in nappies, let alone a mum with a baby in cloth nappies, is a horrible bacterial skin infection on her precious baby's bottom! Kristy had no idea how it came about and initially thought, “How the heck am I going to get the bacteria out of the nappies as well as apply a cream to treat the skin -that was likely not to be mcn safe.” Check out Kristy's blog on how she over came this by using her greatest power ... a Mother's Instinct!

Does the swim nappy go over the top of a normal nappy? (No...!)

Monday, 13 February 2017 12:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

Let’s get this out there right from the start: we're all aware that swim nappies are, to put it bluntly, just a poo catcher, right? There is no point in having any absorbent material in there because it would just absorb the water bubs is swimming in anyway.

Here's what I think is the best thing about the Aqua Swim nappy...

It's Laundry Day *sigh*. And while some people use the excuse that they don't like the idea of cloth nappies because it means doing extra loads of washing, it's really not a big deal. I have a toddler full time in cloth and all I need to do is put a little detergent into the washing machine, then upend the nappy bucket into said machine and press a button to make it go. Seriously, there is nothing more to it than that! Then I just hang them out with the regular washing. I'm certainly not one of those people who takes pride in making extra work for themselves. No siree, Shortcut Shell, that's me!

I've mentioned before that one of the reasons I really love Cushie Tushies is that they provide all the products to make cloth nappying as easy as possible. And here is another: Cushie Tushies Laundry Liquid. A tiny amount of this liquid gold will clean your nappies perfectly and keep them clean and smelling fresh...

Combining eco-disposable nappy inserts with cloth nappies - A Customer Review

Tuesday, 31 January 2017 12:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

I reckon this little pack of wonders is brilliant. I bought a pack of Singles eco-disposable nappy inserts with my initial Cushie Tushies purchase as I was still a little queasy about dealing with poo and unsure about my ability to dry nappy inserts effectively in winter. 10 months after that purchase I finally emptied my first pack!

So why would I think they were so great if it took me that long to use them all up?

What is a Wetbag anyway? - A Customer Review

Tuesday, 24 January 2017 8:12:56 PM Australia/Sydney

After doing what seemed like a degree's worth of reading about cloth nappies, I thought I was pretty clued up about what I would need and how it all worked. When I was ordering my Cushie Tushies nappies, I wanted to grab some accessories and I wasn't all that sure about buying a wetbag, but I threw one in my cart anyway, thinking that it might be handy sometime.



Yes, it does come in handy! In fact, it is a very well designed and executed little bag.

The what, why & how of Cloth Wipes

Tuesday, 17 January 2017 7:58:00 PM Australia/Sydney

One of the things I really love about Cushie Tushies is that we have thought of everything to make cloth nappying as easy as possible.



For instance, once you decide to use cloth nappies instead of throwing out disposables, it feels strange to be using disposable wipes and using those little plastic bags to throw them out. 

Plus you are still adding to landfill.

And disposable wipes and plastic bags don't break down all that easily.

Tuesday, 10 January 2017 3:42:00 PM Australia/Sydney

Helping your child start to use the potty (or toilet) is a big and very exciting step for you both. If you stay positive and calm, your child will be more likely to settle into things. The secret is to wait for signs that your child is ready for toilet training.

What is Foamy Wipes Spray & why do I need it?

Tuesday, 3 January 2017 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

So you've got some cloth nappies and some cloth wipes and are all set to go on your cloth nappying adventure. 

Now, cloth wipes do work brilliantly with just water. However, if you really do like to use some kind of sanitiser, Cushie Tushies Natural Sanitiser (or foamy wipes spray as we sometimes refer to it) is perfect. 

This little bottle of wonder is alcohol and chemical free and uses all natural plant ingredients.
