My name is Lydia Emmett. A wife to Nicholas and a mother of 2 boys Adam and Seth
I recently became the new owner of Little Sam's after having the priviledge of working with Catherine Dowie the original owner of the company. Catherine is also the founder of of SACNU (South African Cloth Nappy Users) group on facebook.
After working with Catherine for sometime in 2017 I was given the opportunity to take over Little Sam's and I knew immediately that this was where I wanted to see myself go and expand with my own company The Mommy Expeditions.
I was first introduced to cloth nappies by one of my sisters way back in 2007 when she used the Stegi Eco nappies on my niece. I never gave it much thought until I was pregnant in 2012/2013 and even then never thought it was for me. Then my sister in law was considering it for her child and slowly I became more aware of how things had changed over the years and how much more beneficial it is for the environment, your child and your pocket!
I started part time with Adam and if I knew then what I know now there is no doubt that I would have been more committed. But as they say you learn as you go and that I sure did. So with Seth I was more determined than ever to use cloth and did so from the time he was almost 3 months until he was potty trained recently.
I look forward to taking Little Sam's to the next level and offering parents the opportunity to cloth diaper their children but also to bring in my own non cloth products that I have found to be useful in my journey as a parent!
