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

Modern Cloth Mini Trend: A Black Nappy. Unusual? Perhaps. Popular? VERY!

Are you looking for a black nappy for your stash of modern nappies?

Over six and a half thousand people search the web for ‘a black nappy’ each month – 6500! I’d NEVER have guessed.

Let’s have a look at a gallery of black nappies. I LOVE putting these together, and I am getting faster at it. By clicking on the photo, you will be taken to the site the nappy is from, where you can get your own such nappy, although some of them are limited editions, and may even be sold out!

As they do seem to be less common than other colours, you can always ask for a custom made black nappy. Lots of nappy makers welcome these, and ‘semi-custom’ nappies, where you can select the colour of the nappy insides or the colour of the snaps perhaps.

Why? Let’s have a think about some reasons why a black nappy might be a highly sought after choice in modern nappies.

1. A Black Nappy is Striking, Eye Catching: a Strong Statement?

There is no doubt that these nappies look GREAT! They are striking, and very eye-catching. A black nappy is as opposite as you can get from a white disposable nappy! Perhaps for that reason it is a statement… A black nappy is a strongly coloured nappy – you need to be brave to put it on your baby – even in your wash! (not really!) However, a black nappy will mean, assuming it is also black inside, that stains are of little concern, as they will be disguised by the colour.

2. A Black Nappy is a Great ‘Canvas’

Black is a neutral colour, technically a ‘neutral’ and not a colour at all! It is a great background to make other colours stand out. As you can see from the examples I found for this mini trend gallery, a black nappy can be a good choice for a boy or a girl. Vibrant and luscious, a black nappy is lovely to look at, and that is well and truly part of the fascination mums have for reusable nappies.

3. A Black Nappy is a Bold and Beautiful Gift Idea.

I’d be brave enough to give a black nappy as a gift. They are gorgeous! A black nappy will scream “Not Disposable” and will be a great ambassador for nappy change – as it will provoke interest and invite conversation about the modern cloth nappy. Be prepared to give a spiel and send admirers of your black nappy to!

  2. I love the look of black mcns! They are unisex and very versatile.

    I gave my friend a black nappy and for a wedding, she put her son in a shirt and a black tie with the black nappy. He looked super snazzy! 😀

  3. Black nappies will go with just about any shirt and leg warmers, plus they don’t show the dirt as much!

  4. I am yet to get a black nappy but I love just the plain black ones. As you said they would hide the stains really well and suit both a boy and a girl

  5. Black MCN…. a must have i think. not only to disguise stains that Mr Sun can not bleach, but also it would eliminate the problem of your once white nappy accidently becoming pink/red due to a colour leak 🙁 ….. ooops, and its not even a nice pink/red either 🙁

  6. Not keen on black MCNs… I prefer bright colours. I don’t really like black as a main colour on babies and little kids for clothing either, it’s too depressing.

  8. I love black nappies, zebra print, dalmatian print. You can easily mix and match black nappies with other colors too such as red, hot pink, navy blue, brown etc.
