[Sponsored reviews] SgBum cloth diaper and Putto korean baby skin care.

Hey Mummies! How was the weekend?
Remember last week I did a sponsored review from Mummytoon?
This post is the second installation of the products which Mummytoon sponsored us: SgBum cloth diaper and Putto skin care for babies.

SgBum Grande Suede Cloth Diaper $25.20 (Mummytoon's price)

Cloth nappy or disposables? When I knew I would be doing a review of a cloth nappy, this was the question I pondered upon.
There are several factors which I considered - cost, convenience, and how eco-friendly.

According to this illustration I got off Facebook, Disposable diapers take 450 years to decompose, ranking the same as plastic and just after fishing line.

Cost-wise, cloth nappies are priced more expensive than disposable diapers if you calculate price-per-piece. However, in the long run, because cloth nappies are washable and reusable, you actually end up saving more.

Here is an example for usage of diapers on your baby up to 2.5 years (the average age of reliably potty-trained children).

Disposable diapers $0.30 x 6 pieces per day average x 365 days x 2.5 years = $1642.50

Now, let's look at how much cloth nappies would cost you:
SgBum cloth nappy w 2 inserts $25.20 x 24 pieces which is more than sufficient to last = $604.80 (Free courier service from Mummytoon for orders $100 and above)

Each diaper comes with 2 inserts.

How to slot in the insert: there is a pocket at the top end of the diaper.
It is advisable to line the diaper with a nappy liner to prevent poo poo from staining it too much.
Who makes a cuter nappy model??

The size is adjustable by the Velcro closure and makes the fit a dream.

Here's the VERDICT.

Can hold pee for up to 3 hours.

Gentle on baby's skin and preventing nappy rash:

I love cloth nappies for the reason that both my kids never had nappy rash from using them. The suede material of SgBum is so soft even when I rubbed it on my face. So gentle on baby's skin.

As convenient to wear and remove as a disposable, except when going out, the cloth nappy is too bulky to fit under Ashton's clothes. The washing is not so convenient though :P

Able to reuse and reduce - an important step in reducing the household grocery bill size.

I'm giving this 4 stars because even though it is washable, you have to consider the costs of water and detergent, and the time spent on washing and drying them.

Surely, you would need more water and detergent to wash off faeces and urine, and that would bring the Eco-friendly factor down.

Putto Korean baby skin care: Secret lotion
Secret Lotion is the name of this moisturising lotion.

The promise: to make your baby's skin stay smooth and bright like Angel's magic. Contains 100% NHEB-05TM (Natural Herbal Extract Blended) instead of water.

Adam has dry skin after swimming, so I am letting him try this moisturiser.




Don't really fancy the commercial lotion smell. Would prefer essential oils smell like Lavender or Camomile for babies.


Makes skin bright and smooth:

Sadly, I would not recommend this product because I find there is nothing special about it. I would prefer California Baby for children's skin care.
