Happy Saturday everyone! What's everyone up to today then? It's Airbourne here in Eastbourne, the free air show and I can see it from my living room so come five o'clock I'll be watching the red arrows drawing pretty pictures in the sky over the seafront! I hope your day will be as pleasant as mine!
Today's Saturday Savings is all about reusable/cloth nappies. I have been obsessed with putting Bear in reusables for a couple of months now, really since I started 'mummy blogging' and I was made aware of just how exciting and good they are now! When I had Moo, I thought they were still all terry squares and safety pins! To be fair, I have been researching terry squares which are by far the cheapest method of reusable nappy and it is definitely something that I would be happy with, however, I'm not a single parent and I have to take my husband into consideration. It has taken me a long time to convince him that reusable is the way forward environmentally and financially, so I've got to make it easy on him.
Enter Baba+Boo, a fantastic brand that I stumbled across through Twitter. They offer good quality birth to potty pocket nappies at a fantastic price and with beautiful, exclusive designs. Individually the nappies are a super competitive £9.25 (plus p+p) which includes two large, micro-fibre inserts and there's multi-buy options available; the more you buy, the more you save.
I have been really nervous about dipping my toe in the reusable nappy waters for awhile now and that is because of the expense; it's a lot to pay out for in one go, especially, if like myself you have no experience what-so-ever and your partner isn't 100% behind you on it. Baba+Boo have a very generous 'Try a Baba+Boo Nappy' scheme whereby you purchase one nappy at full price and you then have a two month trial period, if during which time you can return the nappy (clean, obviously) and will have 70% of the price refunded back to you. I think this is a fantastic idea, it is pretty much as low risk financially as you will get when it comes to trying reusable nappies and that is why it's made Saturday Savings this week!
I've placed a cheeky order and am ridiculously excited for it to arrive, I didn't think it's as possible to feel this way about wee!
