We began our parenting journey in 2014 with the birth of our daughter Eden. Quickly we found out that parenthood throws at you challenges, she was born prematurely and was a fiery little thing from the very beginning. Like many parents we were always tired. We struggled through the daily cycle and had to find our feet a few times over. We used disposable nappies for nearly two years until she was toilet trained. We have always been eco minded but it just never occurred to us to try modern cloth nappies. We can’t believe it now, but we had never even heard of them!
Fast forward three years and while pregnant with our son Henry, we were gifted a full set of modern cloth nappies from a friend who thought we were the kind of people who might use them. We were dedicated to giving them a go, but we were still really unsure of their effectiveness and worried about the extra time it would take out of our already busy days to clean them. It took some motivation and finally after 10 weeks we decided to give them a try…
And we have never looked back! Our preconceived notions were blown out of the water. He didn’t leak and he didn’t get ANY nappy rash. We were proud to be reducing our impact on landfill and protecting our precious little boy from nasty chemicals on his skin.
We wondered what it is that holds others back from making the same switch, and realised that it isn’t their environmental conscience, everyone generally would like to make a positive contribution to our world. It is simply education and support.
And that’s how Little Eco Baby began. First with our Lease and Laundry Service and now onto our very own collection of modern cloth nappies and wet bags! We want to support parents to make safer and sustainable choices in ways which best suits them. Whether it’s through our nappies and wash support or via our no fuss nappy service. We are here for you and proud to be inspiring change in parents across the world.
