Getting sick of baby all in ones and bodysuits not fitting over nappies? I have got this amazing New Zealand made product which will solve this annoyingly common problem!

The walk to preschool was non eventful. DD#1 had a few tears when I tried to say 'bye, see you at 3'. As I had nothing urgent waiting for me at home (expect a bag full of dirty cloth nappies waiting to be washed...) I decided to stay with her until she was happy. Half an hour later after lots of cuddles, I was able to leave which was good, DD#2 was sitting in yet another pooy nappy!
Walking out the door, I realised it was raining, we had no jackets, no umbrella, got offered a cuppa in the staff room and use of a disposable nappy. I declined the offer, tucked DD#2 up in the wrap and had her completely covered by the fabric in an attempt to keep her dry, and home we went.
How impressed was I when I got home, unwrapped DD#2 thinking she will be a bit damp but no she was in fact dry, and snoring!! Who knew baby wearing in the rain would work so well!
So I thought I would share my little story about baby wearing in wet weather (of course the outcome may have been different if it was raining heavier) and this wonderful product with you all!
"There is something primal about walking bare foot in the rain wearing your baby"
The Popit Wrap is an extremely comfortable yet versatile way to wear your baby. With many different tying options the Popit Wrap is great value for money. This wrap is fully reversible so you get two wraps for the price of one.
- Made from 100% Cotton
- 100% New Zealand made
- Can be used from birth to approx two years old.
- Fully reverisble - Black or Dark Grey on one side and a colour on the other
- The wrap only stretches width wise so your baby is fully secure but comfortable
- Designed to fit up to approx women's size 20 (it is 5m in length)

Cloth nappies are old school and we love them as do many parents across the world! We all share the same passion that is cloth nappies - better for the environment, your wallet and they look so damn cute on your babies bum!!
So what is International Cloth Nappy Week all about? Well it is about sharing the love of cloth nappies and helping non cloth nappy users to try them. There are many myths out there about cloth nappies which just aren't true.
Why do I love using cloth nappies?
The colours, the prints, the fabric that are used to create cloth nappies - you can colour match to outfits, you can also use them as an educational tool to teach your child the different colours!
Knowing that I am not throwing away a nappy to sit for years in land fills, that I can wash and reuse just like clothes - it only adds an extra load of washing each week!
The cost, I have already spent thousands of dollars on disposable nappies before I found cloth nappies but now I am saving money each week because I don't have to buy nappies or wipes so I can afford to buy things that we need - like cute new baby clothes!
I think the best thing about using a cloth nappy is you can customise the absorbency of the nappy to suit, so if you have a heavy wetter or to use a cloth nappy over night all you need to do is add a couple more inserts/boosters and away you go - now you can't do that with a disposable!
Try a cloth nappy today!! We have Cloth Nappy Week Specials just for you :)
