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.

Toilet Training How To's!

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.

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

Do my nappies need an anti-bacterial rinse (such as dettol or canesten)?

Tuesday, 27 December 2016 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

In the times we live in, where you can’t go an ad break during your favourite TV show without some multi-national company spruiking their supposedly-awesome solution for ridding your world of germs, you can be forgiven for spending some time in the laundry aisle of your supermarket gazing at laundry sanitisers. You know the ones, Canasten and Dettol are the most popular ones out there and I’m sure that even if you haven’t used them at some stage, there has been a time when you’ve come across something pretty rank in the wash basket and you’ve at least thought about using some!

Customer experience: "Using Cushie Tushies on my firstborn"

Tuesday, 13 December 2016 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

After months of trying to get pregnant, I finally saw that second pink line on the stick. My dream had become reality! Naturally, excitement (& obsession) took over. I spent hours online looking at all the cute baby things I wanted to buy.

Unfortunately I miscarried and of course I was devastated. But I chose to stay positive and thought to myself, "At least I know it's possible. It'll happen again soon." Keeping in line with that positive attitude, I continued my quest and transformed our second bedroom into a nursery.

Customer experience: "Solving night nappy dilemmas"

Tuesday, 6 December 2016 10:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

Emily writes: My daughter Josie is 2 and a bit years old and since she was about 16 months old has barely had a dry night in either cloth or disposable nappy options.

I had suspected she was a 'heavy wetter' early on but as she was breastfed and woke during the wee hours I was happy to change her at 3am or so and that way managed to get away with almost 16 months of exclusive cloth nappying.
