Custom Made Modern Nappies: What Does This Mean?

In Search of the Best Cloth Nappies: Custom Made Nappies

Custom Made Modern Nappies – the goal of this article is to clarify for you what commissioning a custom made nappy means – and to introduce you to some of the cloth nappy shops who offer custom or semi-custom slots.

Our Nappy Experts explain Custom Made Nappies for you in simple ways…

These nappy retailers and nappy makers have been asked to describe the custom made nappies for you in their own way, depending on the time thay had available to contribute when I asked; you’ll see quick, concise definitions as well as detailed explanations that reveal more about the composition of the nappy fabrics, materials and designs. I am certain you will discover everything you need to know about them in their brief or detailed descriptions – I did! Once you know, pop over and look at their personalised nappies with your enhanced understanding of the features and benefits of custom made, individual nappies.

Kyra from Bubbalooba:

Custom made nappies are made to your specifications, and that could mean custom sizing, fabrics, snaps, whatever you like! If you see something in our store that isn’t exactly what you want, you can always contact us for a custom order.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

This could mean anything from being able to choose the fabric and/or snap colours for your nappy, right up to customising the type of embroidery and even the measurements/fit of a nappy.

Amy from Wee Pantz:

Custom Made Nappies are great because you can get your nappies personalised.

I have done a bunch of these for people. Names, different prints appliquéd on the back. It is even possible to get matching nappies for siblings or mothers groups. Modern Cloth is so cute! And I think having custom made nappies are great I have heaps of them!

Nicole from Krap Katchers:

Don’t like our colour choices? Want to make your nappies stand out from the crowd? Here is your chance as with custom listings you can select all your own colour choices.

Kelly from Pepper Place:

The customer gets to choose. This can cover anything-from the fabrics used, to embroidery and other embellishments, to the number of layers included. Basically, you get exactly what you want and what your child needs.

Laura of Cloth Nappy Co:

Custom made nappies allow you to choose precisely what you would like your cloth nappy to be. From the type of absorbent material to the cover and sizing, you can design your own nappy to suit your baby and lifestyle.

Now you know exactly what a custom made nappy is and the best features and benefits of this style of modern nappies.

To summarise this series of articles about the meaning of the various nappy styles, Amy of WeePantz clarifies the main components of modern nappies, to reassure you that it is actually easy to choose the nappy style that suits your lifestyle, baby and budget:

Essentially, all nappies are comprised of similar components, remembering this helps us to not get confused when looking at new brands or styles of nappies.

The main components of a nappy are:

1. Absorbency (whether it be sewn in on an AIO, Stuffed in a pocket or the entire nappy in a fitted or a flat or a prefold)

2. Waterproofing (covers, PUL layers, woollen soakers etc)

3. Stay Dry Layer (flushable or washable liners, or the microfleece/suedecloth layer in a nappy)

4. Fastening (Velcro, snappis and snaps)

When we remember that, I think its easy to figure out what a nappy needs to have in it, and how we want our nappy system to work. For example if you want it all in one you get an AIO, if you don’t mind attaching stuff, then you can look into other options like pockets, AI2’s, fitteds etc. A parent can decide what is right for them rather than being confused by all the options available.
