Funky Baby Shoes

Bobby J - Genuine Leather baby shoes that will not fall off!  I was stoked when my pair arrived in the post, not only were they are unbelievable cute and well made - my baby girl loved them!  She cried when I tried to take them off her.  The non slip suede soles are great indoors on wooden or lino floors - they even have a layer of soft padding.

I got mine from The Nappy Bootique, her service was top notch and she was even happy to do an exchange because I got the wrong size.

The hardest decision you will need to make is which design to buy!

Spreading the Cloth Nappy Love

Cloth Nappy Love is dedicated to spreading the love of cloth nappies with all.  Cloth Nappy Love was launched late 2009 and is already fast becoming the go to site for all you need to know about using or making the switch to cloth nappies.  They are the only site in New Zealand to have a comprehensive directory of where you can buy nappies from around the world.

Cloth Nappy Love has been created by Louise, an avid cloth nappy user and cloth nappy expert.  She has been using cloth for over 3 years and has a successful cloth nappy retail store, Scamps Boutique.  

Louise realised there was a huge gap in the New Zealand cloth nappy market,with no website that offered easy to find and easy to understand information regarding cloth nappies and where to buy them from.  She found the NZ based cloth nappy forums to be lacking in their providing of information. After speaking with a number of mums she realised that most mums found forums to be intimating and they couldn't get easy to understand information without being inundated with conflicting and biased opinions from well meaning forum members.  

Cloth Nappy Love is a safe haven for parents new to cloth to ask questions without the forum environment and get all the information they need from one website.

You will also find reviews, give aways and articles about cloth nappy businesses!  

Cloth Nappy Love - a truly one of kind website dedicated to spreading the love of cloth!

Op Tots is about preloved and new childrens clothing, toys books and now we stock items of Mums too.

In this day and age many people are on a tight budget so Op Tots is a wonderful place to be able to purchase items for mums and their kids with a Thrifty Price tag.

There are some amazing bargains to be had at Op Tots but my personal favourite is their range of new soft sole shoes for babies learning to walk.  I love the fact that these little shoes are washable and very affordable, even when I convert from Australian dollars to New Zealand dollars!

Op Tots also have maternity clothes and for a great price that I have not seen matched anywhere else.  I'm impressed!

The other thing that really stood out is their funky and easy to use website - I love it!  I highly recommend shopping online at Op Tots!!
