Hello, Welcome, How do you do?
Hi, I'm Louisa, a 36-year old, mum to two gorgeous girls, toddler H and newborn Little I.
Back in 2018 while I was pregnant with H and dreaming of just how beautiful motherhood would be (I miss those dreams) I made the decision that my baby would wear reusable nappies. Off I went down the rabbit hole of cloth nappy types and brands and washing routines and drying times...
Against all the naysayers' advice, I pushed forward and we started our cloth journey from 6 weeks old.
As far as I was concerned that was that, I loved my cloth nappies but understood why they weren't for everyone. One-by-one, some of my mummy friends started asking me questions about our gorgeous nappies, and it dawned on me... I'm not just a crazy hippy mum (I'm not even that hippy!), people are interested in being cloth bummers like me, they just don't know where to start, and after a few too many glasses of wine with my fellow NCT mums my @clothbummumm Instagram account was born.
From starting the Instagram account and making it my mission to test as many different cloth nappies as possible my addiction well and truly too. Next I opened Farnborough Cloth Nappy Library and joined The Nappy Gurus team to help as many people as possible make the switch to cloth.
It's not all cloth nappies though, that's just where it began.
Since making this switch I have slowly been making other eco changes in our lives and in our home, which I'll share along the way, along side various parenting ramblings and thoughts.
If you're looking to make the switch to cloth, visit my Cloth Nappies page for how to videos, key terminology and general troubleshooting. For personalised advice I am always hand to discuss all things reusable nappies, you can complete my contact form, drop me a DM on Instagram or complete my Nappy Gurus questionnaire for a full personalised recommendation.
I hope you enjoy what I have to say and I'd love to hear from you.
