This is the start of my nappy dreams.
My first nappies were microfibre fitteds (Totsbots). I bought them because they were cheap and were advertised as 'quick drying'.
I bought 10 of them and soon realised that they were not going to work for us. They were lovely and soft but they were so bulky and poor ethan looked like very uncomfortable whether lying down or sitting up.
As I couldnt afford to buy any more I decided I would try making some instead, so I bought some microfibre towels from the poundland (!!!!) and persuaded my mom to help me. One month later I had approximately 20 pocket nappies which certainly did the job well enough and a few covers.
After constant use though they started to pong quite a bit and so after researching about nappy care I realised that they needed to be stripped ( a term referring to removing all the contaminants from the nappy). I tried everything in the book, and they still smelled. At that point I bought a bamboo fitted (Tots bots bamboozle), and fell in love with bamboo. The stuff never smelt and was incredibly soft compared to my home made microfibre ones. For us though this brand was not the perfect nappy, not being absorbent enough.
By this time I had done my research and come across some gorgeous nappies out there. I tried a few and realised I needed to develop my own nappy 'perfect for us'. I developed it with the idea that it could be used from an early age but still fit my big chunk of a baby boy (currently weighing 27lbs), be funky, practical, easily washable, seriously absorbent and quick drying.
........................and so came the Lush Tush nappy.
I wanted to make this nappy available to others and so decided to set up the website www.lushtush.co.uk.
