Christchurch Mini Kits Wahoo!!!

Post by Kaz » Mon Oct 30, 2006 4:02 pm

Yes, finally finished and soon to be distributed! :smt041

BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed.

Every antenatal class provider in Christchurch (that we know of) will receive one of these lovely information kits.

Each kit contains a sample of each style of nappy, all non branded. Information sheets (laminated) for handing around the class, a photo album of cute kids in nappies and a more detailed information booklet for the educator. Plus TNN pamphlets :wink: All contain in a really cute box!

That is great.
I was talking to another mcn user ((not a NNer yet) and we want to do some talking to ante natal groups etc.
This would be a great start.

There are 7 kits.

Kaz made the AIOs, FOE covers & cotton fleece wipes
Sable made the serged-edge fitteds
I made the pockets & microfibre inserts
The prefolds were gifted by Real Nappies (left over from an Expo)
Gabes knitted a gorgeous soaker for the homebirth class kit
Lisa tackled the boxes & photos

Phew! ;)

It took months to get to this point as some one person (read me :oops: )needed more time to finish.

All the info for the kits comes from the Homepage. A bit of a mission to reformat the info from the webpage :wink:


The key with the nappies is that they are 'homemade' as several antenatal class providers will not use any corporate material. This is to enable parents to choose nappies without any undue pressure.

It has been a real team effort with the donation of time and materials. We may have to get onto some serious fundraising at some stage.

I'm hoping the mini kits will reach more people than the demo kits. It's just too difficult to get to every class or parent group that wants to see nappies.

GREAT JOB LADIES..i miss you all

Did you get a kit out to Lincoln Hospital?

I know from experience they show flat folds and then had 1 "that shall remain nameless" $90+ trail pack which just turned everybody off MCNs.

How generic is the rest of the material?

I have a laminating machine if someone in Welly wants to challenge the disposables vs. cloth brochure in the education classes up here.

My friend is now at Rangiora hospital (had her baby at 8.30 last night :smt040 ) so I shall be delivering that kit when I head out to visit her soon. At their classes they did origami folds, and another member of the class brought along their MCNs which were fitteds of some sort.

Missing you too Michelle :smt054 (I'll let Kaz answer your question about generic info)
