My Green Nappy Discovering Modern Cloth Nappies and Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies

What do you like about the Modern Cloth Mini Trends?


What’s popular, fashionable and trending in the world of modern cloth?

Modern Cloth Mini Trends regularly explore a different theme in modern cloth in a visual display of products.

Modern Cloth Mini Trends

Each mini-trend has it’s own gallery, from which you can explore the retailers who have contributed to that particular theme. The products are all representative of their shop; you may be able to visit and buy one of those nappies; you may have to commission one!

See the latest Modern Cloth Mini Trends…

This post is here so you can respond generally about this feature of My Green Nappy. I’ve created the galleries to give you a visual overview of the wide range of products available in that theme; you can see my art background in the fact that it is all about galleries, he he he. (I was an art and design teacher for 12 years)

  1. Realising how trendy I already am in my stash πŸ™‚

    Also just the showcase of variety out there! Anyone just having a look round to see what cloth nappies look like these days will be amazed (and hopefully addicted!)

  2. That there are so many designs, I have never seen the LV nappies before, I absolutley love them and will have to get some in my stash!!
    Nappy cakes are great, there are so many different styles that can be done, it would be good if you had the resources to show how to make the flowers out of the clothes that go on them.

  3. I am big fan of the boutique nappies, with much of our MCN’s being from this range πŸ™‚ But i also like seeing what else there is, and seeing which nappies fit in which category, such as organic. I have found that very informative… and lots of fun seeing all the amazing different MCN’s there are πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Michelle,
    I love nappy cakes too! I am working on a mini trend just about Nappy Cakes – they are just so PRETTY! That’s a good idea about some tutorials – I’ll pop it on my list…

  5. I tend to go for the really *really* bright colours and florals, now that I have a little girl after two boys!

    The styles I prefer waver between one-size pockets of all descriptions and sized AI2s – with a few fitteds and covers along the way. The one size pockets are the winners for ease of use, cleaning, drying time, stuffability, and economically fitting bubby the longest (in my opinion anyway).

    I have at least two styles off each of your galleries so far πŸ™‚

  6. Love the quick links to different nappy sites, it makes it very easy to discover new styles and makers. Thanks!

  7. I think the trend is definitely towards prettier nappies – bling, applique, cotton outers etc, in AI1/2’s

    Poor me, I am so behind the times, I just LOVE pockets. Surely, like everything old, they will become fashionable again πŸ˜›

    I also think there is a steering away from velcro closure nappies, though I’m not sure why, as dealing with MCN newbies on a daily basis, these people tend to prefer velcro closures.

    I’m also seeing a big resurgence in bamboo prefolds – cheap, easy and versatile.

  8. I love the pics! There are so many amazing nappies out there and the galleries let us choose which ones appeal to us.

    I love bright colours and bold designs, as well as vintage prints.

    My favourite style is POCKETS, absolutely! And I love velcro (hook n loop) closures, as snaps drive me batty.

    What i’d like to see is cloth nappies promoted as the ultimate baby shower gifts, instead of the usual clothes and wraps that barely get used. It would be so great if guests each brought a nappy (could this be a nappycake?)

  9. I love looking at all the different green nappies as my son has red hair and green looks great on him.

    I would love to see some cloth Nappy Cakes as I think they would make great shower gifts.

    Looking at the nappy trends also helps to see how many different brands of nappies there are out there but I would like to see under each of the nappies in the trends section if they are AIO or AIO, fitted, pockets etc so people like me know exactly what type of nappy I am looking at.

  10. I’ve got lots of different types of nappies in my stash, but I’m really just discovering AI2s. So I’d like to see some more of these, or just to see the nappies in different groups of the different types available.
    I love the idea of nappy cakes too!

  11. I am hooked on your resourses.

    I really am getting a wealth of information from the training pants window. I’ve started EC with my two girls and gain a lot of information on what’s available to make the process a smooth one.

    Drop down pants are great as well as the split crotch pants for our cooler weather in Canberra over winter.

    I only just discovered a nappy AI2 that fits from newborn to toddler and it really does fit both my girls, and my toddler is 17kg at two with loveable thighs. And they’re a local nappy design. They are still great for us at night-time as we haven’t mastered EC at night yet.

    I’m all for practicality and cost-saving so anything that fits from woe-to-go without needed to be up-sized is great. Especially when my girls are quite different in size and weight. Good for the environment too.

    I wish I had this info at the beginning of my journey as it would have saved lots in trial and error. That said both girls are very different in their elimination needs and it’s a matter of finding what works for each individually.

  12. Just another thought for a nappy style window is all the do-it-yourself options out there. Sewing & knitting patterns for nappies, pants, mats, charms, fabrics, wool etc. We could post pictures of our own creations. Just an idea.

  13. Hi Kathy,
    Yes, a great idea. Hmm, I’ll have a think and add it to my to-do list.

    I do have a gallery for showcasing your home-made nappies here:

  14. Hi Sara,
    I’ve got an article coming up (a congo!) about All in Two’s – as yep, it is a bit confusing to work out the differences between some styles of nappies.
