A question answered- Eco baby wipes

I don't get many emails through my blog. But when I do I always try to answer them. This week I had an email from Sarah who is preparing to cloth nappy baby no 2.


Thank you for your informative blogs. Can you recommend an eco/skin friendly way of wiping at nappy change time?


I thought I'd publish ny reply in case any other mamas wanted to know


Hi Sarah,
Pleased to here you like the blog. We just use water and reusable baby wipes.
You can buy these from a company called cheeky wipes or make them by cutting microfiber kitchen cloths into 5" squares.
They can go in a normal wash and if your baby has a rash then you can use any natural oil (coconut, olive etc) to act as a barrier.
We've just had baby no2 and these wipes are so handy for cleaning spit up too. Much easier than using a muslin every time.
Good luck with the cloth!

Little Bloom- Cloth Nappy reviews

If you are a newbie in cloth its hard to know what to buy. I've been using Cloth Nappies for 16 months with my first born, and am preparing to have two in cloth when my daughter arrives in May. You could say I'm somewhat of cloth nappy pro.
I've moved on from my start up stash, and invest in nappies that will see us through til froggy potty trains, and ideally ones his baby sister can use afterwards too!
Pocket nappies are great for this purpose and this week I'm reviewing the little bloom nappies
You can grab little bloom nappies on amazon from as little as £2.89 delivered. So they are a cheap option but are they cheerful enough to do the job?

Starting our kitchen garden

Growing our own food has been an ambition of my husband and I. We both really value locally sourced produce,  and enjoy spending time outdoors.  In our first home together (a basement flat in the city centre) we planted anything and everything we could in planters on the windowsill.   I had green beans trailing up the bars of our windows. They bolted and twirled up the bars but never got enough light  to produce anything edible.

Then we moved into our first pub which had masses of outdoor space, unfortunately,  all car park and no dirt. We managed to sustain some hanging baskets with strawberries and a few herb planters, but that was about it. 
Now we are in our new home.  A lovely country pub in the new forest, whiich offers a private garden just for our little family.  We moved here when I was 8 months pregnants and ever since, I've been desperate to make the most of it. 
Since the new year we've been planning what to do with this neglected space.  I found this article from nu…

Sowing in January- kitchen garden and allotments

What can I grow this January? After the business of December, January
has hit me like a sledgehammer. I'm bored. I need a new project, and what I really want to do is get on top of my allotment and kitchen garden.
