Awards should come with a health warning - Baba+Boo

Awards should come with a health warning

I never realised that entering business awards would be so emotionally draining but yet so totally exhilarating! I am beyond thrilled that I can now say that my Baba+Boo nappies are 'award-winning'. We won the Gold Loved By Parents award in the 'Best Reusable Nappy' category - yay!!! I am still on the ceiling, somewhat stunned.

Baba+Boo Gold AwardI have worked so hard to get the design of my cloth nappies just right, getting them independently tested to make sure they are safe from harmful chemicals and ensuring that they are made in the right conditions. I have come across criticism very recently and in past from people who see that my reusable nappies are made in China and immediately think the worse because of the stigma that is attached to 'Made In China' label.

I work really closely with the factories and it makes me feel a bit sad that these wonderful people who cannot do enough to help, are given a bad name. We as a nation could learn a lot from how they do business and it's a shame that all businesses in China are immediately tarnished with this ill-deserved reputation.

I am never one to blow my own trumpet but I will tonight because its taken me a lot of hard work to get where I am today. Now I have the wonderful Louise Turner on board, next stop is world domination as she keeps telling me.

I am very proud that I am a runner-up in the Fab Woman of the Year 2011. The very fact that Laura Tennison from JoJo Maman Bebe has read all about my business is pretty mind-blowing. This sounds a bit gushing but a big thank you to everyone who voted and believes in me and my nappies. Also a very big thank you needs to go out to Tina from Loved By Parents for single-handedly organising these awards, its been an amazing up Mumpreneur UK awards next heart may have stopped racing by then.
