Christine, who runs Terry Nappies opened it in 2008 when the country was heading into recession and she thought it made sense to have a nappy site selling budget nappies to those who really needed to save as much money as possible. The website has been popular and there is definitely a lot of interest in terry squares, yet surprisingly few cloth nappy websites actually stock them.
She said:“Having used them myself I am quite confident in helping others with them. We added downloadable folding instructions to the website, which has been popular. We’ve since updated the website and increased the product range, so while the terry squares are a mainstay, we also stock more modern shaped and pocket nappies too, so there’s a whole variety of stuff in one place. Our unique nappy kits have also been popular, people are often unsure what to get, so we put together a few kits to make buying easy. Before I was a “mumpreneur” I worked in insurance for a company specialising in insurance for the very wealthy – this gave me a background in high standards of customer service, as our clients tended to have very high expectations! My nappy know-how comes from personal experience – as you can imagine with 4 babies I’ve changed LOTS of nappies in my time (probably around 18,000, if you assume 4,500 per baby!), and have tried out everything from terry squares to all in ones. I like the flexibility of working for myself, although the down side is that you never get any time off, because if I don’t do the work, it just doesn’t get done!”
