TotsBots Dad Jonathan on Reusable Nappies
Meet Jonathan and Idris, one of our lovely TotsBots Dads telling you what he has discovered about using reusable nappies and what he found surprising.
Jonathan and Idris came in to see us a few months ago and we had a good chat about how they were getting on with their reusable nappies. He opted for cloth because of the environmental benefits but has since discovered a whole bunch of other positives too ‘’We love the fact there are no chemicals next to Idris’s skin and no extra bin bags to take out either (my most hated task!), plus we have never had a dreaded poonami!* We need far fewer clothes for Idris than friends using single use nappies so it really is only 2 more washes a week.’’
*For those who don’t know, or are yet to experience such a thing, a Poonami is the technical term for a monumental infant bowel movement of such quantity and force that no (disposable) nappy stands a chance of containing it, resulting in a disastrous, dry heave inducing, up-the-back-mess. Fortunately, TotsBots reusable nappies save you from such disasters, containing even the mightiest of Poonamis.
For Jonathan, choosing reusable nappies that are made close to home was a major influencer in their decision of which nappy to try, and thanks to our superstar EasyFit nappy he found Totsbots was the perfect fit for Idris ‘’We love the EasyFit STAR because they are incredibly absorbent (often 5 hours with no leaks) and getting the fit right is so easy.’’ What he finds surprising too is their friends and family love how beautiful and fun the nappies are as well as finding them really easy to use too. So there you go, the in-laws will have no excuse not to help out with the nappies!
We’re sure, just like Jonathan and his friends and family you’ll find our reusable nappies just as easy to use on your little one. If you’re looking for more tips and advice on using reusable nappies check out our simple little videos where we show you how easy they really are.
