Friday Round Up - Bits and Pieces

It's been a busy week, and I've got a mad weekend coming up with Blog Camp tomorrow, and work on Sunday.

This week has been Real Nappy Week and there has been lots of buzz on Twitter, Facebook and on blogs. It's been really exciting to see so many people talking about real nappies, and the environment. I want to share with you this really excellent vlog by Circus Queen, which clearly shows that using cloth nappies is not difficult. When I am as pretty and as organised as Adele I will start vlogging, until then you are stuck with the written word!

I've been using the Ecoegg this week, and am very excited that I will never have to buy washing tablets again. I much prefer the way the Ecoegg performs as opposed to laundry liquids and powders, and my clothes feel so fresh. I hope I've persuaded you to give it a go. Please go enter my competition! Only a few days left!

The giveaway for a special edition TotBots nappy is open until Sunday, you only need to comment on any blogpost this week to be eligible.

I wanted to end this round up with Baba + Boo. This is a locally (to me) based company selling delightful cloth nappies. My favourite is Cruella du Wee, partly because I named it! I've been using their potty training pants, and will be doing a more comprehensive review and update with how the battle of the potty is doing in the coming weeks!

Also just to let you know I've started a new Twitter account Not Even a Bag News  where I post the latest stories about prematurity and pregnancy. I'm considering doing a weekly news round up on the blog, and would love to know if people would find that useful.

Thanks for reading everyone, and for your continued support and sharing!


  1. Call me wind because I am blown away by your post!

    I've really enjoyed this week of posts, put me and my eco-unfriendly ways to shame!

  3. We are trying the eco egg too but I miss the smell of fabric conditioner!

  4. Oo, looking forward to reading the training pants review :-)
