If you’re an expecting mom, you’ve probably caught yourself dreaming of your “surprise” baby shower, something you would typically see on a Pinterest board, with a colour co-ordinated theme and games that don’t leave you feeling all sorts of embarrassed, but rather ones that are fun and leave you feeling pampered and excited for this new journey that you’re about to embark on. You’ll have an abundance of gifts that will include the cutest onesies, the softest blankets, loads of bum cream and most likely… nappies.
Nappies have very quickly become a popular gift for new and expecting parents, and the reason is quite simple: you need nappies, but they end up costing a lot of money! You may not always realize it, but before long the weekly pack of nappies that you go through, can start adding up, and with the average child only starting to potty train after the age of 2 years old, you end up spending a lot of money on nappies.
Here’s the thing though; nappies aren’t quite a one-size fits all sort of gift. Very often, parents have already done their research and have a preference of which brand they would like to use for their baby. Considering that baby showers are often organized by a friend, they probably haven’t considered mentioning on the gift list that the parents would prefer to only use X brand, and so thoughtful guests purchase a pack or two of nappies in varying sizes and varying brands. The result; parents are stuck with a pile of nappies that they can’t necessarily use or exchange as their baby has already outgrown the size too quickly or he might even be sensitive to a certain brand.
That’s not even taking into consideration that there is a rise in moms who are choosing to cloth diaper their babies, and who would prefer to take a more environmentally conscious approach to nappies. That being said, nappies as gifts are very quickly becoming outdated.
So, what if I were to tell you that you (or a new mom that you know) could save up to R6,875, that you’d usually spend on nappies. What if there really is a better gifting solution for baby showers and with a little help from some friends, you can give a new or expecting mom some peace of mind. Introducing The Baby Throne, a nifty solution designed and created by a mom, that can have your children potty trained earlier than ever, and will save you thousands that would usually be spent on nappies.
Qualified as an engineer, Zoe designed the Baby Throne to simply adapt traditional toilet training techniques (taken from the days before nappies were invented) to our modern lives. Zoe noticed that her son showed signs of needing to “go” and that a specific squat position triggered the instinct to “push”. Her unique product makes it possible to be finished with nappies before 18 months, which is the same age that children were off nappies, before the invention of disposables 40 years ago!
As soon as your baby can sit up straight by themselves (around 4 months or so), you can start using The Baby Throne. You are not “toilet training” them but are just helping baby empty their bowels properly. It is basic physiology and gravity. The soft, comfortable material that gently holds and supports your baby in a squat position, allows and encourages your baby to make the connection between wanting to “go” and The Baby Throne. As a result, you end up using fewer nappies.
The Baby Throne has received endorsements from pediatricians, and a world recognized pediatric surgeon as a valuable aid, especially for children when transitioning from liquid to solid foods. It is patented in SA, Australia, Europe and the USA.
The Baby Throne retails for R999, so if a group of friends chip in, you can gift The Baby Throne to a new or expecting mom who will love and be grateful for the thoughtful gift. You can get yours from The Baby Throne website which is full of information and resources to assist and guide you in using their exciting product.
