Prima Baby Success!

Wonderoos cleaned up at the Prima Baby Awards 2016, scooping the prestigious GOLD for Best Reusable Nappy with the Wonderoos v3, and SILVER in the same category with the Real Easy!

Prima Baby Awards are held in high esteem, informing parents about the products and services that do genuinely make life easier, better and more fun for young families.  The nappies were put through a rigorous testing and judging process and chose the Wonderoos v3 as the best of the best – good for the environment, absorbent, and cost effective too!

Real Easy nappies were awarded Silver – the only sized nappy to secure an award in this category – a testament to the superior absorbency and user friendliness of this product.

To celebrate the awards, we have 15% off all Wonderoos and Real Easy nappies in the Wonderoos shop until 24th March!

About the Rainbows…

People often comment on the lovely bright rainbow coloured Wonderoos range, and the rainbows that appear on all our designs.  So I thought it was time to share with you a little more about the rainbows.

It was about this time, 19 years ago, that I found out I was expecting our first baby.  Our excitement and joy knew no bounds!  Just a few short weeks later, we were told that our baby was not to be, I had suffered what is called a “missed miscarriage”, and our baby had died.  We were absolutely devastated at the news, we just hadn’t expected that things would go wrong – after all, having a baby is the most natural thing in the world.

What does this have to do with rainbows?

A rainbow baby is a baby born following a miscarriage, still birth or other baby loss.  In the real world, a beautiful bright rainbow follows a storm and gives hope of things getting better.  The rainbow is more appreciated having just experienced a storm.  And so it is with babies.  Having endured the storm of a baby loss, the arrival of a new baby is much like the arrival of a rainbow.

Our rainbow baby was born about a year after the miscarriage, and will be 18 next year.  Miscarriage is believed to occur in around 1 in 5 pregnancies, and 1 in 200 births in the UK is a stillbirth.  Baby loss affects many, many families.

To a family that has experienced a baby loss at any stage, the arrival of a “rainbow baby” gives new hope and positivity.  It certainly did for us.  I have long since accepted that our lost baby was not meant to be.  Although I [...]

Double Shortlist Triumph for Wonderoos!

Both Wonderoos v3 and Real Easy have been shortlisted for Best Reusable Nappy in the prestigious Mother & Baby Awards 2016!

The Mother & Baby Awards recognise and reward the finest baby products in the UK, and we’re delighted to have both of our flagship nappies included in this years shortlist of 8 reusable nappies.

Wonderoos v3 nappies were launched 2 years ago and have gone from strength to strength, with a fantastic range of exclusive gender neutral prints as well as a vibrant range of colours, and the option of PUL or strokable minky outers. Wonderoos v3 nappies have already won a collection of other product awards and are also shortlisted in the Maternity & Infant Awards in Ireland this year.

The Real Easy brand was relaunched in March 2015, sharing the same fun print range, and has quickly established itself as a market leading night nappy. Available in a range of sizes, it covers an impressive age range, from tiny preemie to hefty pre-schooler, and has the flexibility of plenty of room for boosters for those who need a bit extra – although the 3 layer hemp/cotton blend insert makes this pretty impressive on it’s own!

Real Easy Wins Consumer Choice Award!

Just six months after the re-launch of Real Easy, this popular nappy has picked up it’s second award, winning the Best Baby & Toddler Gear Consumer Choice Award 2015. The Consumer Choice Award goes to the product that performed best in the public vote, so for such a new nappy to beat off competition from several much more established brands is exceptional – we are humbled by the level of support and love that parents have shown for the Real Easy nappy.

The Real Easy nappy is a fantastically absorbent sized all-in-one nappy, flexible enough to use for day or night, it’s a popular choice for heavy wetters and overnight use. The generous sizing means that most babies only need two sizes, however there are 5 sizes available to cover babies from a tiny 4lbs right up to a hefty 45lb+. Very few reusable nappies are available to cover this upper weight range, which makes them particularly suitable for pre-schoolers with special needs, as well as those children who have difficulties in potty training.

Real Easy is carried by many of our stockists in the UK and overseas, and you can also purchase it from the Wonderoos Shop.
