Charlie Banana

Standard

     “Sale items REDUCED AGAIN!!  As we are overstocked in small swimmers we need to clear I have reduced ALL prices again!” reads Tweedle Limited’s Facebook Page. Now at only $8 NZD, these Charlie Banana 2 in 1 Swimmer & Training Pants are a great deal. With summer not too far away, I couldn’t resist buying a few for Zaedyn and possibly some as prezzies. It was hard to decide on sizes, but knowing that Zaedyn has a small bum, I am glad that we bought mostly Medium. I am sure that he will grow into them a bit more before summer. Can’t wait to try them out at the beach.

     In our original hunt for nappies before Zaedyn was born, we had bought some Charlie Banana nappies from Fishpond only to be told that they were out of stock and would not be available. I am excited now to at least try some swimmers out. The lining is even 100% organically grown cotton and the outer layer is waterproof. Most swimmers are not actually absorbent, but the Charlie Banana swimmers are very well designed as well as eco-friendly. The bright colours originally attracted me to this brand. For those of you who know me will know that I love green, and Zaedyn’s new bright green Charlie Banana swimmer is by far my favourite. Look how cute he looks modeling it and pretending to surf on his Indo Board.

Don’t forget to check out Tweedle‘s website for great deals on Charlie Banana swimmers, cloth nappies, leg huggers, and more. We have always had great service from Tweedle, and the products are shipped out and arrive the following day. We are almost out of Rockin’ Green so we decided to add some to our order and try out Earth, Wind, and Orchids. Although I seem to be spending lots of money at the moment, I am impressed with all of the good deals and products that I keep finding. Continue to follow along as I will keep you posted with a few more items that will be coming our way.

Wet Bags for Sale

Standard

Dinosaur with white zipper & two turquoise wet bags still available $10 each

     Wet bag: a waterproof bag made of PUL to store used cloth nappies, wipes, swimsuits, wet/dirty clothes, and anything else you can think of. The possibilities seem endless! They are a great eco-friendly and stylish alternative to plastic bags. Not only that, have you ever put everything in a plastic bag only to notice later that everything has leaked because there was a hole in it? Plastic bags very often have a hole or even holes in them, but you wouldn’t have to worry about that if you owned a wet bag. Or, are you one those parents who feels the need to carry your big heavy bucket around wherever you go, and even filling it with water and powder to soak? Besides not recommending soaking your nappies until they are ready for a wash, the invention of wet bags now saves you from the hassle of carrying around an unnecessary large bucket.

     Zaedyn has a variety of different wet bags in all sizes used for his cloth nappies and cloth wipes as well as for clothes or swimmers. We have found that we prefer a zipper over a drawstring as they hold in smells better :). If you have any concern, however, Rockin’ Green sells a Shake It Up! Pail Freshener that can be sprinkled in your wet bag to keep away any unwanted smells. Size preference depends on what exactly you are wanting to use the wet bag for and for how long. We have a couple very small bags that are great for shorter outings when we know that we will only need it for a few nappies. When you get home, you can toss it in your dry bucket to be washed along with your cloth nappies.

     The two monster and dinosaur with turquoise zipper bags have sold, but the other three small wet bags are still available for only $10. Shipping can be arranged. Please comment if you are interested or have any questions. I still intend to make a few more, but these are all that I have in stock at the moment and am uncertain as to when all of my new projects will begin. Will keep you posted as to when I put all of my eco-friendly ideas into creating new items.

     If these don’t suit what you are looking for, have a look around online as there are lots to choose from at a variety of prices. As with cloth nappies, feel free to start your own project and be creative in making your bub a wet bag. They are not solely for cloth nappy users. With so many practical uses, wet bags are a necessity, in my opinion, to have on hand for your little one.
