TotsBots Mum Emily on Reusable Nappies
Meet the latest duo in our Real Parents on Real Nappies series. Emily and her little cutie Ted came into our studio to see us and we got chatting about her reasons for using reusable nappies, she shared with us her reusable nappy story, why she chose cloth, why she chose TotsBots and asked her to think about what her best advice would be for you if you’re thinking of using cloth. Here’s what she had to say:
‘’I really wanted to reduce the amount of waste we send to landfill but was also worried about the chemicals used in disposables as I have very sensitive skin and my daughter had really suffered with rashes.’’
We fedback to Emily that more so than ever, we are seeing parents opting for cloth for exactly those reasons and in that order. With so much stuff in the media especially with regard to single use plastic it is hard to ignore that waste is a huge issue and is only going to get worse.
Her best advice on making the switch to reusable nappies was to ‘’Try them. Buy a few and just give them a go even if you can use a couple of reusable nappies you will reduce your input to land fill. Plus you will love them.’’
We think Emily’s approach is a great one too as we say ‘a nappy a day keeps the landfill away’, proving that it doesn’t have to be all or nothing and making small changes really makes a big difference.
There are a lot of brands out there and it can be a bit overwhelming, especially when you have a new baby around. But Emily sidestepped that phase as TotsBots came highly recommended to Emily by some of her friends, they had been using our nappies and she went straight for them…she was swayed by our fantastic pattern designs and the fact that we’re Made In The UK clinched the deal for her!
