TotsBots began after our second baby, Maia, was born in 2001. Having used disposables for three years on our first child, Kyle, we headed down the cloth nappy route with fingers crossed as lots of people thought we were a bit mad to be using old-fashioned nappies. Four months later, having tried various brands of cloth nappies we were about to give up. I then decided to make my own nappies combining the best of both cloth and disposables. Even I was amazed at how well my prototypes worked. Soon our friends wanted some, they told their friends, who told their friends and it wasn’t long before we were well on our way to became the thriving business TotsBots is today.
