Hi! My name is Lauren and Buddybabyco was created out of a love of reusable cloth nappies and eco baby products. I am living in Sydney with my daughters Emee aged 10, Macey aged 4 and Lola who is 2 years old. Buddybabyco is named in honour of my son Buddy, who was stillborn in 2017.
Originally from Brisbane, I first heard the term modern cloth nappy in 2009 when I was pregnant with my eldest daughter Emee. I was a young, first time mum looking at ways I could save money and purchased my first set of cloth nappies from eBay. Lack of education about them and confusing wash routines, inserts and leaking, made me give them up within a few months.. they didn’t really cross my mind again until I walked into a cloth nappy store when my youngest daughter Lola was 2 months old.
A supportive cloth community and advice and more education about cloth and the materials used, made cloth nappies so much easier this time around. I saved so much money and felt so rewarded knowing I was helping the environment by keeping disposable nappies out of landfill. Once I had the nappies worked out, switching everyday items I used at home to more eco friendly options was the next step for me.
The nappies sold at Buddybabyco are designed to be trim, simple and functional.. the best way for cloth nappies to be! We offer some nappies that are handmade by Brooksies, a WAHM brand in New Zealand, Bubakin, Sloomb|sustainablebabyish nappies and a few other Australian designed brands. We have recently introduced a handmade section of baby essentials, including nappies handmade by Buddybabyco.
In addition to cloth nappies and accessories, we also stock reusable breast pads, cloth menstrual pads as well as sustainable baby essentials.. Swaddles, Bedding, Loungers and children's utensils, bowls and plates. We have tried to make the switch to cloth and eco products as affordable and as ADORABLE as possible with the introduction of Afterpay!
