What makes Bio-Babas special?

Bio-Babas are special because:

 - we are locally made so do not have a large carbon footprint...we really believe LOCAL IS LEKKER! For us, going green means thinking and acting local. Bio-Baba uses small underpriveleged companies in Lotus River, Mitchells Plain and Athlone for our manufacturing, all within 10kms of Bio-Babas head office!

- we only use 100% natural fibres against babies' skin which is very important to us - using man-made fibres such as bamboo viscose/polyester/synthetic fleece against babies' skin is not ideal (hot & clammy!); and of course the process of making synthetic fabrics uses lots of water and chemicals. (In the US, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has ruled that unless a yarn is made directly with bamboo fiber — often called “mechanically processed bamboo” — it must be called "rayon" or "rayon made from bamboo)

 - absorbency - you can not beat the absorbency of our nappies (once the hemp has been washed for a week or 2!) - the fact that we have 2 microfibre layers sewn in to the nappy and that every nappy comes with a 3 layered hemp pad makes these nappies really effective, especially when baby is bigger and the extra absorbency is needed in order to avoid changing every 5 seconds! A thin/small snug-fitting nappy might appeal in the beginning, but as soon as baby is a little bigger (which happens very quickly) you will REALLY appreciate the extra absorbency of the Bio-Baba! Slightly bulky when baby is little is a small price to pay for an effective nappy in the long run! It will also fit toddler in those crucial potty training months - bonus!

- durability - our customers can vouch for the durability of our nappies = we even have a few clients using them on baby number 3! This means a lot to us, especially since it is an investment - you don't want the nappy falling apart after a few months use. This is also where the quality of our natural fabrics comes into play.

- versatility - being able to be used as a great night nappy, swim/beach nappy and for potty training makes this a really cost effective nappy...with most other systems you probably will have to purchase these extras at an added expense. The fact that every Bio-Baba comes with a hemp booster pad for when baby is bigger must be factored into the cost calculations.

- award winning - Bio-Baba is winner of the Green Innovation Award from Real Simple Magazine as well as Fit Pregnancy Magazine's 'most convenient', 'easiest to use' and '...nicest looking' cloth nappies (March 2009). Owner and creator of the Bio-Baba brand, Vicki Penfold, was also named as one of Mail & Guardians 'Young South Africans you have to take to lunch' in the environment category for pioneering cloth nappy use in South Africa and her commitment to educating mums about how to include cloth nappies in their routine.
