Inside: A look at the cloth nappies from Ecopipo
I love cloth nappies but I am going to be honest, I haven’t used them in months. I got out of the habit and using disposables just seemed the easiest way.
When Ecopipo got in touch, it helped me to snap out of my lazy streak and I decided that now was the time to get back into cloth.
I hadn’t heard of Ecopipo before but the nappies are so lovely that they are a firm favourite now! They don’t just sell nappies either, so let’s take a look at what you can find there…
If you use cloth then you will need a wet bag for those dirty nappies – how cute is this fire engine one? It has a zip – so much better than some of the draw-string ones you can get.
And here is the matching nappy… the Firefighter All in One with poppers. It has a soft bamboo velour inner, with two layers of microfiber and two layers of bamboo. It also comes with an extra absorbent booster made of 4 layers of absorbent bamboo that can be snapped in to the nappy.
Happy as larry in his new favourite nappy!
Next is the Onesize pocket nappy in Cheeky Monkeys print. Something to note is the fact that this nappy was shortlisted as a finalist for the Mother & Baby Award in 2017, when first introduced into Europe. I can see why, it has a fantastic fit and is very absorbent.
It has a soft elastic gusset around the leg to help reduce leaks – something I always look for in a nappy.
So cute isn’t it? Perfect for my cheeky monkey!
I have found that some night nappies can be a little stiff but this Onesize Adjustable Night Nappy is super soft and flexible. Being made from bamboo means it is super absorbent – the perfect choice for bedtime.
When you cloth overnight, you need a wrap and this Little Rocker print is super cute!
It has a double gusset and is available in either poppers or hook and loop – whichever works best for you.
Now you know me, the biggest fan of red ever known so I had to get him a red nappy, didn’t I?
Look at that fit around the leg – no leaks will be getting through there!
As you can see, he is happy as Larry!
As well as nappies, Ecopipo also sell cloth wipes made from 100% cotton.
They are so soft, they are perfect for wiping delicate bottoms or for keeping gorgeous faces clean.
I am so glad I have started using cloth again and I am glad to have found another fantastic brand. Now I just need the weather to allow me to hang all of my nappies on the line and I will be as happy as Wills!
And that’s not all…
For the longest time, I have wanted to try cloth sanitary pads but have been too scared to get any.
Even though I have used cloth nappies for 5 years or so, the idea of using anything like that for myself made me a bit anxious.
The thing is, normal sanitary pads irritate me so much that I have spent years dreading that time of the month. I’ve used a cup on and off over the last couple of years but find that really fiddly so tend to go down the lazy route of using normal pads each month.
When I was asked to try a couple I was really excited but I did have my reservations. But you know what? I will never go back.
I placed a full order today so that next month I will be comfortable each and every day, for the first time in 20 years. I won’t dread it (more than anyone ever dreads it) ever again.
If you are thinking about trying cloth sanitary pads then go for it! They are comfortable, absorbent and easy to clean – you can’t ask for more than that, can you?
