This week we’re celebrating Australia’s multibrand cloth nappy retail businesses. We’ll introduce you to some business owners passionate about reusable nappies, sharing their wide knowledge and experience. A multibrand retailer is a great place to start if you’re new to cloth nappies, as they have a wide experience of different brands and knowledge across all areas and can help narrow down the options to suit your family.

Hi, I am Nicole Brownlow and I am the owner of Critters Creations. We are now located in a wonderful (and very green) part of Queensland, Mackay; where we are loving the heat (and not missing the cold of Adelaide, SA). This being said, Modern Cloth Nappies make or set off a great outfit.

So where did we start? Well, I had been learning about and have worked with modern cloth nappies for several years, thanks to being exposed to the world of babies by our family, extended family and having a little critter of my own. I just love cloth nappies, both old school and our lovely modern ones; and have had Critter in them since he came home from hospital. However, I remember sitting in a mums’ group being asked loads of questions about cloth nappies – How do they work? How do you clean them? And on, and on. Then I thought to myself, “I really need to share this love more”. So, with a two-month-old in tow, I started building my business from the ground (or website) up and helped other parents move to an eco-friendlier lifestyle.  

Now living in Mackay, I attend the North Queensland Babies and Kids Markets in both Mackay and Townsville. It is so lovely to meet new parents every market and watch little ones grow (oh those toes!!) as well as meeting other great businesses.

So, no matter where you are located, we are here to help you with your cloth journey. Remember, they are wonderful for delicate little bottoms and even better for parents’ pockets. Oh and of course our environment! Check out our Getting Started page for all the stats and savings that come with using cloth nappies. And our FAQs page for loads of hints, tips, and tricks.

Talk soon!
