Why cloth sanitary pads are awesome!

Thursday, 27 April 2017 12:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

When my business partner first suggested to me that she thought it’d be a great idea to start making cloth sanitary pads (in addition to our Cushie Tushies modern cloth nappy range), I have to admit I thought she had lost her mind!  But I trust her instincts so MamaMinx was born, and when our first shipment of these little beauties arrived I thought I probably should try them out myself...

When I was pregnant with my first son Aidan (who is almost 7 now, gosh where did that time go?) I fully expected to breastfeed. In my family, all the women gave birth and breastfed with ease, even my mother who was having her children back in the day when the 'done thing' was to put bub on the bottle as soon as they were born! Fast-forward to my own first baby and the birth was long and difficult and breastfeeding also proved to be more complicated than the easy, natural experience I was expecting… (Head in the sand, much?!)

Customer experience: "Choosing modern cloth nappies for my two boys"

Thursday, 13 April 2017 12:00:00 AM Australia/Sydney

My journey towards using cloth nappies is a rather roundabout one.  Whilst I was pregnant with my first child, cloth nappies weren’t even on my radar.  I’d only seen modern cloth nappies once, but the thought of using cloth nappies really didn’t even cross my mind.  Perhaps working full time meant that I wasn’t on the internet enough and being in a small country town meant I wasn’t going to baby expos.  Who knows?  Disposable nappies were abundant and perceived as the norm – who was I as an uninformed new mum to argue?

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...
