Weehuggers - we love these new wraps!

We're stocking the new Weehuggers wraps and boy we're impressed with them!  Our youngest tester can tiddle for Britain through the night so a good test of a wrap for us is if it can withstand his nightly ablutions and these certainly can.

A wonderful choice of colours and patterns to please both boys and girls the Weehuggers come in either hook and eye or popper fastening; ideal for those of us with toddlers who have nimble fingers :-)

Highly recommended the Weehuggers are available for purchase here: Weehuggers and are priced £13.50

*NEW* Little Critters Wraps

Little Critters Wraps

These new wraps are exclusive to us, and feature a range of monkeys, elephants, sheep, cows and more! 

Each wrap is a one-off, we'll never make two the same :-)

The wraps are the fantastic birth to potty sized Lollipop Pop n Gro. They have a double gusset for reliability, soft PUL material and come in white - or banana yellow as featured here on our monkey wrap.

At only £14.00 each these are a great buy - one to flash in the hot weather I think!  Buy them on our facebook fan page at:

Don't just stop at one!

There's been a common theme at my real nappy demonstrations recently.

Mothers with a child already (most aged 18months+) are now looking at cloth nappies as an option because they're considering the cost of having two children in disposables.

They come wholeheartedly wanting to use cloth nappies and most don't even consider using them on the older child too. There can be huge benefits to doing this; no more nappies to buy for older child, only a small extra investment for the extra nappies required, birth to potty kits will fit both children, almost all council cash back schemes are per child not per household double claims can be made and of course the reduction in waste which with two children would be significant.  Older children will benefit from potty training sooner once they feel the wetness, instead of the 'dry' feeling disposables give.

It's worth considering changing the whole family to cloth, something to think about when you're looking for your youngest!

New Pocket Pop n Gro!

The fantastic new pocket nappy comes in two generous sizes which allow for the smallest newborn right up to the chunkiest toddler. We know that the onesize nappy has been extremely popular but there is always a compromise at one end of the sizing scale or the other, the new pocket Pop n Gro aims to overcome this with its unique adjustable 'sizing within a size'.

Although the guide for size one is from birth to 20lbs we have a customer who said it fitted her 28lb son so it is more than generous.

Caring for your Pop n Gro Nappies

Important trials have been taking place with Pop n Gro nappies and the new low temperature detergents on the market which contain a whole host of chemicals that can cause microfibre fabrics to stop working.
Initial results show that nappies which became leaky can be made to work with no problems once the detergent build up has been removed (easily done using clean and fresh).

Important advice for the future is to use only half the recommended dose of detergent and certainly don't follow the advice of some manufacturers that says double the amount!!
Lollipop have formulated their own detegent that will obviously contain no enzymes, perfumes, optical brighteners or anything other than natural ingredients. Be aware that non bio detegents have lots of these things in too.
