We began our parenting journey in 2014 with the birth of our daughter. 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 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 wants to make a positive contribution to our world. It is simply time and money.
And that’s how Little Eco Baby Nappy Service began. We decided to provide a sustainable, no fuss service that is affordable to time poor parents.
