I came across a couple of great ideas at the expo on the weekend that I want to share. I like to support mums in small business, but I need to like the product too!
Orange Hope - this stand was right next to our ABA one, so we got to chat quite a bit! I joined their Facebook on the spot on Friday and was pleasantly surprised to be greeted on Saturday with a copy of the book I had won by doing so! It is a lovely book and I plan to have it at the Breastfeeding Centre for mums to browse while they feed or wait for sleeping babies to wake so they can feed! The book is full of things new mums can do to look after and nurture themselves.
From the website:
Do you want to naturally navigate motherhood?
“Every mother hopes to be the best mother she can be…Let Orange Hope support, nurture and inspire your amazing motherhood journey”
Rockin Green and Ecocubs - Rockin Green is a laundry alternative that ticks all the boxes from an environmental and ethical perspective and is suitable for all your laundry but particularly so for modern cloth nappies (which I think are wonderful, just 20-30 years too late!)
The mums who are distributing this are just so lovely and great supporters of ABA, breastfeeding and gentle parenting, so I would be delighted to point my purchases toward them. Then they told me about their business - ecocubs: not just an online store for modern cloth nappies but also running a cloth nappy library and a demonstration service - just the thing for the modern cloth nappy day I have been pondering for the Breastfeeding Centre (like our Slings and Things)! So check them out!!
