Eco Cleaning Essentials for new Mums and babies
Isn’t it funny how the world has gone full circle from those great big reusable nappies with the large safety pins that we (well some of us more seniors!) used to wear as babies, through the period of ‘convenient-throw-away-plastic-infused’ nappies and wipes to now more of a focus again back on the reusable.
Having babies is without a shadow of a doubt the most life changing thing for any new Mum. Things are hectic. Sleep deprivation is at an all-time high and convenience is front of mind when settling into a new routine.
It’s important to keep in mind, though, that the new small human you have just brought into this world with his or her translucent skin and body of total purity deserves to be treated with the utmost gentleness and respect.
With the skin being the biggest organ and prone to absorption of all kinds of nasties, the use of reusable washable products on your new small human is worth strong consideration.
Here are a few recommendations to not only look after your new baby but also our planet:
Reusable nappies from Nature Baby - cotton and bamboo nappy squares
This beautifully soft and absorbent nappy square will soon become one of your baby essentials! Nappy squares are a simple and traditional cloth nappy and are an environmentally friendly and cost effective alternative to disposable nappies. The brushed cotton nappy squares are made from organic cotton and bamboo, offering comfort, breathability, absorbency and softness against baby’s skin. https://www.naturebaby.co.nz
Bamboo Reusable Towels from Good Change
These are a great alternative to baby wipes. Simply fill up a small bowl of warm water beside your change table or in the kitchen, add a drop of essential oil and use your bamboo towels for all of those ‘spills’ . Soft, strong, super absorbent and breathable, you can use, wash and reuse these cloths up to 85 times. Pop a small basket or bin in the kitchen and nursery for all of the dirty cloths, wash them each day ready for the next use. A new Mum essential. www.goodchangestore.com
Eco Cloths from Good Change
These cloths are totally versatile and have so many uses. One of the main features of these is that they don’t smell. They are made from wood pulp and cotton and dry superfast so no time for the harvesting of unnecessary bacteria and hence they don’t get that awful ‘raggy’ cloth smell. The Eco Cloths are great for mopping up spills OR they can be used in the nursery as a soft facecloth to freshen up your little bub after their sleep. AND, lovely designs to provide a natural extension to your interior brand. www.goodchangestore.com
