Nappy Accessories: 3 Key Extras for your Modern Cloth Nappy Stash.

Cloth Nappy Extras – what is going to make your cloth nappying easier, faster and more efficient?

This article is about a few nappy accessories which are popular are aids to using modern cloth nappies, making them even greener.

In the Nappy Style Window for Accessories, you can browse a range of retailers who have a selection of ‘extra’s’ that have proven popular with families using modern cloth, and indeed for other types of nappies too. Liners for instance will help flick poo into the loo from a disposable nappy – which is something that everyone should be doing to reduce the risk of untreated sewerage contaminating groundwater from landfill sites around our countries.

Let us look at 3 of the ‘extra’s’ that you might consider to make your nappy use even more eco-friendly:

1. Reusable Cloth Wipes

Perhaps the easiest way on Earth to ease into using washable cloth, reusable wipes can be made of any sort of fabric that has evough softness and ‘grabbing’ to clean up and wipe down your baby’s bottom when it gets messy inside or outside of a nappy. You can make or buy reusable wipes that can be used for baby’s bottom, face or other baby spills. Using a different colour for baby’s face or hands is the way you’ll keep them sorted hygenically.Bought wipes can be of the softest bamboo or two sided for grabbing strength and wiping softness. You can get wipes colour coordinated with your nappies or wipes made of bamboo velour – once you try that….

2. Nappy Inserts, Nappy Liners and Nappy Boosters

Nappy Inserts – liners are useful to help you get the poo off the nappy – you can have washable ones made from hydrophobic polar fleece – just shake any solid contents into the loo, or favour flushable, bio degradable liners that you simply chuck into the loo, contents and all! Silk liners are favoured by families with babies who have very sensitive skin – as silk is very natural and soft next to the skin.Boosters allow you to increase the absorbency of any of your nappies very easily – just add in an extra soaker where you need it (eg at the front for boys and tummy sleepers), or when you need it (eg at nights.)

3. A Nifty Nappy Sprayer

These nappy cleaning devices attach to the water pipe of the toilet and have a trigger so you can blast poo into the loo with ease. Lots of cloth nappy families swear by them!
