For 6 years we have grown Buxton Baby – a comprehensive resource supporting Australian eco families run by myself; a midwife and mother of 2 young children. This has been the time of our lives; mostly because we conceived, birthed and grew with our babies who have had so much to teach and to give. Also though, we experienced the nourishment of connection with people that have become more than ‘customers’. We have been warmed to see a community of BB supporters grow.
We are now shifting into a new phase: with a facelift and some positive new directions. Our biggest news is that we are changing our name to Little Eco Nest. We were playing with a new name for some time when our 4 year old son connected strongly with this. His decision gave us permission to move forward with our dreams.
We feel that our new name embraces the heart of what we are about. A resource for young families, with environmental awareness at it’s core, a place offering shelter for the young in a philosophical context. Buxton Baby was a name we came up with on the fly, in 2006 when our idea was to manufacture cloth nappies. What has become, is actually so much more than a baby store and we needed to respect this and be true to our purpose.
The space we grow is a place of love, respect and kindness. From this position we know that we are ideally placed to continue providing support for the many Australian families seeking a more environmentally aware lifestyle. We know that as the original eco family resource we have a responsibility to offer more guidance. We see that an increasing number of Australians connect with the value of environmental awareness, in lifestyle choices as broad as food and diet among the many other ways that ‘eco’ makes a difference in family living.
We’re launching our new look in just a few weeks and we would be so grateful if you could share the word around using the social share buttons at the end of the post.

Our web store has been redeveloped to provide a state of the art e-commerce experience offering a mobile/device version and our blog has been redesigned to offer a fresh experience with more opportunities for sharing, partnership and giving back to our community. Again these will all be available in the coming weeks to improve your access to our resource.
