Hi There & Welcome
I am Pheodora, the founder of Mom & Baby Inc. Finding out that you’re going to be a mother was one of the most exciting moments in my life. On 13 January 2009 my eldest child Judah was born. As any mother feels about her child, I thought he was perfect and immediately I was overcome by strong feelings of wanting to protect him with every thing that’s in me. Despite all my good intentions, it wasn’t long before I notice that he had a very sensitive skin and would get breakouts from regular household products that we used everyday. After multiple visits to our GP and a local Dermatologist, we tried many different creams to no avail. Several tests were done on him and the Dermatologist informed us that he was reacting to a product that was in the disposeable nappies that we used. We changed from one brand to another and nothing helped. Eventually when he was around 18 months we switched to terry towel nappies (Also know in South Africa as Glodina & Black Label) within a month of making the switch his dermatitis & eczema cleared up and I could once more enjoy my child.
During 2013 I was due to deliver my second child Tehila. A few months before the delivery date I was planning and thinking about all that I needed to prepare for her arrival. I thought about the turmoil that we had experienced with her big brother and was just not ready to go through all of that again. After doing some research on the internet I came across modern cloth nappies and was immediately sold on the concept. I imported two brands called Flip Diapers & Econobum both by a company called Cotton Babies in USA, I also purchased 12 pocket nappies from a Chinese manufacturer. When the nappies arrived it was love at first sight and i couldn’t wait for my little one to be born. On 14 October 2013 my daughter Tehila was born, a day later we were sent home from the hospital and I could finally use the cloth nappies on her. Over the months that she was on nappies I purchased a few more nappies, both local and international brands and my love for cloth nappies was cemented in that time.
Due to questions and Queries that I received from friends and even strangers in the shops at the time I founded my cloth nappy business trading as Baby Thingz at the time. I made the online debut in August 2014 with my number one aim being to educate new parents on cloth nappies and to supply cloth nappies at a reasonable cost. I supplied cloth nappies & accessories to parents all over South Africa and parts of Botswana & Namibia through my onlinbe store. Baby Thingz grew in leaps & bounds and in January 2016 I rebranded and started trading under a new name Mom & Baby Inc. My vision is to provide Affordable, Practical, Innovative solutions for the modern mom. My Mission is to help modern moms live a healthy, sustainable life.
I will help you design a a tailor made cloth nappy solution for your little one. I also provide bigger nappies for special needs children that might be past the average potty-training age but still need to wear nappies due to their special needs and adult cloth nappies.
