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!

Babymoov launches new changing bags collections!

Working closely with parents, Babymoov has produced a new collection of changing bags that enable parents to fuel their inner fashionista without sacrificing the practicalities of a conventional changing bag.

Parents can now choose between two new original designs that combine flair and functionality: Trendy and Urban.

These new bags will complete a wide selection of colours and patterns available in each style (Style, Baby Style, Essential, Traveller, Glitter, and City), guaranteeing a match to any outfit, pushchair or occasion!

The inspired unisex styling of the new Trendy and Urban bags means that Dads can also enjoy the practicality and style of a Babymoov changing bag when out and about.

Mums can be ahead of the trend by choosing between the glamorous Style bag, designed for day outings. Fashionista’s may prefer the uber-chic Glitter bag which is sure to turn heads, whilst the elegance of the City bag adds a little ‘oh-la-la’ to any outfit.

Designed to last, the bags are multifunctional and can be used before, during and after babyhood. The expansive Traveller can be used as airline cabin baggage (complies with IATA rules), makes a perfect hospital bag and is great for overnight stays. And the Essential is the ideal bag for a week-end excursion.

With a generous selection of accessories and plenty of storage to stow away the baby gear and more, parents can feel confident in the knowledge their needs are accommodated.

Prices start at just £34.99. All bags come with a lifetime warranty as standard.

Maguari ‘bags’ two new brands!

With years of invaluable experience in the changing bag sector, Maguari is delighted to have added not just one, but two top quality baby changing bag brands to its portfolio over the summer.

Just last month, the company announced its acquisition of Pink Lining, a brand that Maguari had always admired and considered ‘one to watch’. With a collection of popular bags such as the pretty but functional Yummy Mummy, a ‘hands-free’ rucksack-style Wonderbag and the chic and sophisticated looking Notting Hill Tote, Maguari has great plans for Pink Lining, both here in the UK and further afield.

Earlier in the summer, Maguari secured the distribution rights for the MELOBABY brand. Proud to have the super stylish and extremely practical MELOTOTE changing bag now within its portfolio, Maguari is confident this is a changing bag that parents will become smitten with, and its award-winning design guarantees it will be used long after baby is out of nappies! Also in the range is the DELUXE Nappy Wallet and Change Mat, providing all the changing essentials in a stylish, neat wallet that fits easily into a handbag.

Maguari will be supporting both the Pink Lining and MELOBABY brands with a strong PR and marketing programme, including print and online media placements, as well as digital marketing through social media and a host of key influencers. Retailers can be assured that new mums will be hearing great things about these two brands, and actively seeking out these stylish and practical changing bags.

Toilets and baby change areas are a breeding-ground for germs; Splash About’s changing mat with anti-bacterial foam and non-slip backing provides a clean, safe surface for babies, wherever they are.
