Hey! I'm Hannah, owner of Bear & Moo. I'm Mama to 2 gorgeous boys, Regan and Hadley, and a wee girl Maddie, and I'm married to Richard. We live in Hamilton in the Waikato.
As a new Mum, I found there were lots of little costs that added up. One of the things that I used to hate spending money on was nappies. They go through so many of them, and not only are they costing me a tonne of money, they're also going straight to the landfill and doing nothing to help the environment.
So I looked into cloth nappies.
To begin with, I was completely overwhelmed. There were so many options, so many different price-points, and so many opinions on the 'right' way to do things.
I did it my way.
Easy, affordable and cute as pie. I bought reusable nappies I liked, at a price I could afford and didn't necessarily follow all the rules. I started with one cloth nappy a day (saving me about 30c a day on a newborn disposable). Moved up to cloth at home and disposables while out and very quickly, we were cloth during the day and disposables overnight.
And that's where my happy place is.
I'm not 'perfect', but I'm doing my bit to be eco-friendly, and I've saved thousands of dollars by not using disposables full time. That's my inspiration for Bear & Moo ... saving you money and giving you a choice. You don't have to be perfect and you don't have to do it 'right'. Just do what works for you.
