Glad the soaker got there alright, Claire - didn't want to risk bringing any bugs to the front door (although we've had 48 hours of no vomiting, so hopefully we're all clear!)

AND...good luck with the house. I can see Leeward Drive from my place (look straight across to the bottom of Mercury Way).....

Have a look and let me know if anything needs fixing up!


**Real Nappy Week - Ultimate Pack**

This week is New Zealand’s second ‘Real Nappy Week”. The aim is to raise awareness of the benefits of using modern cloth nappies.

Using modern cloth nappies is not only good for your pocket, good for your baby and for the environment but as you can see they can be very cute!

Want to know more?? You can come and see some modern cloth nappies in real life and meet Mums and bubs who us them! Check out http://www.thenappynetwork.org.nz/real-nappy-week.php for details.

This auction is not for profit. All the proceeds are being given to The Nappy Network and will be used to Incorporate TNN as a non-profit group.
This will mean we can do more for NZ babies, more for the environment, and more for NZ parents!
All the items in this pack have been made and donated by Mums from the Wellington region.


· Size Small Diapers Deluxe Cover: to fit approx 12-18lb/5-8kg with gussets
Winnie the Pooh Cotton PUL, White Fold Over Elastic, Snaps

· Size Small Very Baby Fitted Nappy: to fit approx 10-16lb/4.5-7.5kg
Two body layers of green hemp stretch terry; internal soaker of two layers microfibre; snap-in soaker of two layers microfibre, one layer hemp terry topped with suedecloth; cross over snaps for maximum adjustability overlocked with woolly nylon;-)

· Voucher for Bottomline longies in newborn/small size
You choose from a wide range of colours. These longies are made from 100% wool.
Wool is anti bacterial, water resistant & can hold up to 30% its own weight in moisture, so it makes an excellent nappy cover!
Your longies will only need washing when they get smelly, or soiled. This can mean they only need washing once a month or so! Longies are perfect for night-time & winter as there is no need for a separate cover.
Longies are funky, highly breathable, kind to your baby & the environment...

· Small hand knitted soaker with waist drawstring and leg cuffs. 100% variegated colour wool.

· Black all-in-one style nappy with silver fern embroidery. Size small Very Baby
all-in-one pattern to fit approx 10-16lb/4.5-7.5 kg.
Black PUL, microfibre absorbent layers and microfleece inner. Velcro closures

· Small pocket nappy with ‘counting sheep’ embroidery. White PUL outer and
red microfleece inner. Red hemp and microfibre insert for this nappy is included.

· Green wrap nappy cover with velcro closures. Made from Maldern Mills 300wt fleece. Size medium.

· 4 cloth wipes. Flanellette print on one side, very soft microfleece on the reverse

· Royal blue wet bag for storing wet/dirty nappies when out and about (30cmx30cm). Outside pocket contains a fold up change mat.

· Roll of 100 flushable liners.

I only see one typo - the waste drawstring should be the waist drawstring. :lol:

Edited to add - the stuff looks GREAT - we Wellington girls ROCK!

It all looks fab! Well done everybody :smt041

(Claire, sorry, I missed your call for info :oops: ). The soaker is definitely 100% pure wool, and small size, so it's all good!
