Nappies, Wipes and Changing Mats

N
appy changing is what motherhood is about – or so it seems at times. The trend to using washable nappies is continuing and the good news is that these are sold in nursery shops, bringing in more customers and more ££ into the till.

For many parents it's no longer the case of 'shall I use washable' but 'which washable'. A good choice is becoming more important. Selling a full set of washable nappies should be as important as selling a buggy or a cot!

The use of nappies is one thing that distinguishes humans from other animals. In ancient times they used leaves or animal skins. Swaddling bands were strips of linen or wool that were tightly wrapped around baby. By the 1500s, the nappy was changed around once every three days! By the 19th century, babies were wearing nappies similar to modern ones, but boiling nappies to clean them and reduce nappy rash didn’t become commonplace until the beginning of the 20th century. Goodness know what our ancestors’ bums looked like – undoubtedly red and raw!!! Waterproof covers made their appearance in the late 1940’s with the first disposable being launched onto the market in 1956. Progress was rapid with absorbency and fit being improved, with absorbent polymers being added in 1987. Around this time, the vast majority of babies were in disposable nappies.

Disposable nappies are highly advertised with the large amounts of space given over to them on the supermarket shelves but media interest in global warming, and all things environmental is pushing up the awareness that disposable nappies form a significant percentage of landfill rubbish. There still appears to be a need, however, to convince some parents that overall, using washables IS cheaper than buying disposables. A significant number of mums to be are put off by spending it in one go rather than spreading it out over two years.

Cotton nappies are now mainstream and fast becoming fashion items! It's not only about how well they work but how pretty baby can look. We have bright prints, block colours, even fluffy bums! It's all a very long way from the ugly plastic pants my kids were in!


Be Good and Do Good with modern cloth nappies

Charlie Banana cloth nappies make it easy and fun!

Parents can choose their favourite prints and colours, the nappy type - Hybrid AIO, our classic One-Size or Organic - pick the inserts (cloth or biodegradable), and with Hybrid AIO they can even decide how to use cloth inserts (stuff them in or lay on top).

Charlie Banana® was created out of a love for eco-friendliness, quality, and design. Products that anyone would feel confident using on their babies, and that they would recommend to their friends. Our philosophy is "Be Good" and "Do Good" and, certainly, this is the way it makes parents feel when they reuse.

Our products include the innovative, patented award-winning Hybrid Reusable Cloth Diapering System, Reusable Swim Nappies and Training Pants, Organic Cotton Wipes and Change Pads, Totes and Nappy Laundry Bags, Reusable Feminine Pads and Breast Pads.

Charlie Banana® Hybrid All-In-One (AIO) nappy: a comfortable, trim fit pocket nappy lined with a soft layer of fleece, which comes with two Deluxe Top Fleece inserts included. Parents have the option to stuff the pocket with washable inserts, or lay the cloth insert on top of the nappy shell. Or you can use a disposable biodegradable insert for when out and about (to be purchased separately). Hybrid AIO are One-Size nappies, which can be used from newborn through potty training and the leg elastic can be adjusted as the baby grows - our patented bra-strap buckle sizing system means no intermediate sizes and less snaps!

Splash About swim nappies

For over a decade, Splash About has been a leading innovator in the baby swim nappy market.

Its original neoprene Happy Nappy is the only brand recognised by British Standard Guidelines for baby swimming due to its effectiveness at preventing unwelcome faecal leaks in the water.

For this reason, it’s also the de facto swim nappy for swimming schools in the UK and internationally.

This summer Splash About introduced the New Improved Happy Nappy; technically constructed, its new ergonomic design provides the best protection on the market, against faecal leaks.

Fully tried and tested by swim schools who agree that the new shape, with unique moulded back panels secured with an innovative fitted gusset, is flexible but holds any faecal matter safely inside. The design is enhanced by specialist-ribbed fabric at the waist and legs, which provides flexibility and an effective overall seal.

Reusable and reliable this form fitting shape moves as baby moves but unlike other designs there’s no gaping regardless of how hard baby kicks in water.

“Over the years we have seen many imitations of our award-winning original Happy Nappy,” said Splash About’s CEO Bernadette Spofforth. “Our Happy Nappy range is synonymous with the most effective leak-prevention and the cleanest swim possible. It’s the no1 choice for stress-free baby swimming for swim teachers, schools and parents alike.”
