This week I have been testing out Naty Baby Wipes, A while back I did a post about Water Wipes and if they really are worth what they cost and while I was shopping in my local sainsburys I found these wipes at £1.80 a packet in store, believe it or not these wipes are £2.95 on the official website!

But enough about the price, lets talk about the wipes themselves, The ones that I have are 100% ECO friendly, they are fully biodegradable and are made from natural fibers and ingredients which is pretty fantastic as it limits the amount of plastic currently circulating in our environment at the moment, they have no nasty harmful chemicals so no little bottoms are going to be sore from using these.

On first using them I liked the smell, on the packet it does say its fragrance free but there is a definite smell to them which isn’t a bad thing, I like the texture and thickness of them and they don’t fall apart like some eco friendly wipes which can be a bit fragile under pressure, Their size is good and feel a lot bigger than other brands, I mainly use the Tesco sensitive wipes so I am comparing to them.

The only issue I have, which I have with a lot of eco friendly wipes is their cover to where you pull out the wipe, its a sticker basically which over time can loose the sticky product on it and not cover completely thus causing the wipes to become dry.

But that is the only issue I have, I actually like these wipes, Compared to the water wipes they aren’t soaked and I feel they are a better size and quality to them, I don’t agree with the price but I guess they are making them from materials which cannot be sourced cheaply.

Do I recommend them – actually I do, If you are worried about the environment then out of all the eco friendly wipe brands out there this has been my favorite, they are strong and do their job splendidly, However as I said the packaging is the turn off for me, if they had a clip on lid to prevent drying out then I would definitely add these to my weekly shop.

Would I buy them again – Maybe, they aren’t the cheapest wipes on the market and when you are watching the pennies its hard not to pick up the cheaper, store branded packets of wipes..

I truly hope that one day these eco friendly, baby bottom friendly wipes can be reduced in price for the budget conscious mums out there, I guess in the long run cotton wool and warm water can be a good replacement, but wipes are there for convenience.. and not everyone can afford to spend more than £1 on a single packet of wipes each shop, and we mums to have to buy more than one packet!

I will go on a search of a eco friendly and pocket friendly wipe for a future post as I am now curious if there is any out there!

Until Next Time

The GroEgg is a room thermometer from The Gro Company which was set up in 2000 bringing the GroBag to the UK, they have many brilliant products on offer and I, after noticing I had a bit of credit on my amazon account, decided to purchase one and try it out, I remember looking at them when we was expecting R but never actually got around to grabbing one.

The egg itself is roughly 4 1/2 inches tall so it sits perfectly on a bedside table and surprisingly considering its almost always plugged in and turned on, never gets hot which is always a big worry for me when it comes to plug in only electronic goods.

Currently in the UK its a bit warm (slight understatement) so at the moment the egg is glowing a rather angry shade of red, I did get a bit worried when the temperature did finally drop in the evenings but I was still greeted by a grumpy little red egg that perhaps I did something wrong with setting it up.. but over the course of the week we finally saw an orange.

I think its extremely safe to say I am looking forward to the autumn and winter to see it change into the other colors, But I find it amazing how inside can be a completely different temperature than outside, even with windows and fans going and I am secretly excited to see it hit higher temperatures.. considering how much i dislike those hotter months, there is something reassuring and fun watching the numbers go up and down, the older children will often sneak into our room in the mornings and comment on what color the egg is and what number its sitting at.

I am not one to pick up on baby gadget fads, but I am glad I decided to buy into this one, our bedroom is one of the hottest in the house and with the baby sleeping in there with us, its nice to know if she needs less layers as often I think its a lot cooler than it actually is. I sort of wish I had grabbed one when she was tiny.

How bright is it? – not that bright, its dim enough to sleep with it on and you cant really use it for a nightlight or a light to change nappies in the dark, I find the red glow soothing at night, but some have different light sensitivities and it may bother others..


I really recommend buying one next time you see one in the shops or online, I find it helps me relax knowing what the room temperature is before settling my little one down for her naps… and this is coming from a firm believer of going on instinct!

I will definitely update you on the other colors when autumn and winter rolls around, if they change much at all! even at winter our house is very warm thanks to being in sunlight throughout the day.

Until Next time.
