I regularly receive emails from companies asking me to try out their modern cloth nappies on my children and write about my experiences but I always politely decline. It’s absolutely not that I have something against cloth nappies, in fact I am a big fan: cloth nappies look gorgeous, are great for the environment and save you big bucks on your family budget, however the simple truth is that after trying many different brands and styles over the last few years there is simply only one name that delivers excellent results for us and that I’m loyal to: UK label Close.
In Australia the Close range is being distributed by cloth nappy experts OZ Baby Trends and you can find their products at many stores and online retailers across Australia. If you are a modern eco conscious parent you are sure to love Close, the range offers so many fantastic products and new designs are being added all the time. The latest Close gems have just been uncovered and they are currently en route to all Australian stockists, ready to be snapped up by you.
Summer may officially be over but that doesn’t mean swimming season is over. Whether you are taking your baby out to the pool, have a beach holiday planned or have signed up for swim school the brand new Close Swim Nappy is a must have for your swimming bag. Created by the makers of the super reliable Pop-In cloth nappy you can count on these stylish reusable swimmers to keep baby (and mum) happy and the pool clean.
The new Pop-in Swim Nappy features a soft and colourful printed outer, a world of difference from the plain, sterile, crinkly plastic disposable swim nappies you pick up at the supermarket. Hidden on the inside are three carefully created layers designed to deliver superior reliability: a layer of fast wicking fleece and a stain resistant, water repellent layer sandwiched together with a hidden waterproof membrane.
For ultimate safety and cleanliness the legs and waist are securely ‘sealed’ by the unique Close Seal to Skin binding. These soft and flexible ‘cuffs’ fit nice and snug around your baby’s waist and legs so that any accidents stay contained without interfering with your baby’s movability or leaving nasty marks. After the swimming adventure rinse your swim nappy thorougly and it’s good to go for next time, so easy!
The Pop-In Swim Nappy is available in four sweet prints to suit boys and girls and comes in four different sizes: Small (from birth/3kg), Medium (from 4 months/6kg), Large (from 8 months/9 kg) and Extra Large (from 16 months/13kg). With a very pleasant $19.95 price tag you are sure to gets lots and lots of water fun for your money and you don’t have to feel guilty about adding more waste to landfill.
