Rory rocking his sister’s hand me down nappies ❤️ I’m going to do a few more posts about ways we have been working to reduce our waste as a family – simple swaps, cheap DIYs and lifestyle changes we have made (very imperfectly may I add, with many loses with the wins!).
I know individual changes are a very small piece of a very complex issue (and one that needs to be addressed much higher up than an individual consumer level!) but I do believe that every little thing makes a difference, and being conscious of the waste we produce helps us personally to stay aware and connected to our relationship with and impact on with the earth.
We started cloth nappying when Caitlyn was tiny – we had the girls 17 months apart and we were totally freaked out at how quickly a whole wheelie bin would fill with disposable nappies.
Once you are in a routine with laundry and extra load every day or two doesn’t feel like much work at all, they are so lovely and soft on babies skin and you never have to run out to the supermarket last minute when you run out 😂 As with lots of eco swaps, they have the added benefit of saving lots of pennies too!
We’ve been super lucky to hardly have to buy any this time, with hand me downs and super generous friends giving us lots too. I’ll post a bit more in the next few days about the ones we use now (we tried looooads!) and some tips for trying out cloth nappying on the cheap!
