Cloth-bum baby models: Aila then and now
TotsBots has turned 20 this year! And to celebrate, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and revisiting some of our past baby models.
This week, we’re seeing how little Aila’s doing now that she’s the grand old age of 4!
Modelled: Parumpapum and Daydream
Can you remember wearing your nappies?
Yes! Do you know how I remember? Because I can look back at pictures of me wearing them. Mummy has lots of on-the-bum pictures of me on her phone … I think she has more photos of them than of my face... only kidding!
What did you like best about your nappies?
I like how nice they look. I like the ice cream design best — I use it all the time on my dollies. It’s good because I can use it on different babies and it doesn’t rip.
That ice cream print will be our Lollibots swim nappy. Great choice, Aila!
Will you use cloth nappies if you have babies when you grow up?
Yes, I think so — I already use them on my dolls.
If you could design the pictures that go on a nappy, what would they be?
A unicorn nappy with all the colours in the rainbow on it.
What’s your favourite thing in the world?
My doggies Caoife and Ted, they’re really nice. They don’t wear nappies... but Muffin has some of my old ones, doesn’t she? (Mum agrees and explains that Muffin is Aila’s auntie’s dog, who has a bladder condition.)
Poor Muffin, but we’re chuffed to see Aila spreading the fluffy love all the way from her dollies to her family’s pets!
What’s your least favourite thing in the world?
When the dogs lick my face, yuck!
What do you want to be when you are older?
A doctor for babies or a queen.
It looks like Aila’s all set to keep the cloth nappy tradition going! She could even save some of her dollies’ nappies to use on her own kids one day… as long as there aren’t any more dogs with bladder leaks in need of them first!
