Do You Prefer ‘Natural’ or ‘Colourful’ Cloth Nappies?

Spring Green Promise Nappy Sponsors – Congo Advice #5

The Sponsors of the Spring Green Promise Nappies are your Nappy Doulas for this series of ‘Congo Questions’.

All Spring Sponsors were invited to contribute their expertise. Each donated a special cloth nappy as a giveaway prize to become an ambassador for ‘Nappy Change’ as it stops a disposable heading to landfill each time it is worn. This seasonal giveaway strives to reach 100 donated nappies in a future round, and you can register at any time to play. You can enter into the draw for one nappy, or all of them!

Do you prefer ‘natural’ or ‘colourful’ cloth nappies?

I’m pleased to have contributions from a number of your Green Promise Nappy Sponsors included in this article. I’d like to thank them for their time and for sharing their experience to help you make the most of your green nappies! We have Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products, Katerina from Twinkle Lily, Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba, Yoland from Bumbino, Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies, Amy and Nat from Little Diamond Bums, Fiona & Catherine from Darlings Downunder and Liz of Real Nappies NZ.

Let’s see if your nappy doula’s have a preference for colours or prints or natural nappies…

Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products:

I prefer natural as they have no fabric dyes in them but sell patterns and coloured because they are a fashion statement and funky.

Katerina from Twinkle Lily:

I prefer colourful nappies pending they work well.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

I don’t have a preference, as long as the nappy works as it should, colours don’t matter.

Yoland from Bumbino:

If we are just talking about colour… I quite like soft and natural colours in “workhorse” nappies for under clothing and everyday use. I do love a plain white nappy! If I am specifically wanting to show the nappy off…then prints and bright colours are the way to go.

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

Definitely colourful! If you’re going to spend money on something it may as well be pretty, and with so many different prints and bright colours available how can you resist!

Amy and Nat from Little Diamond Bums:

We both love the colourful prints. With our latest range of Limited edition prints we had so much trouble choosing between all the wonderful designer fabrics that we asked our facebook fans to vote for their favourites. We had such a huge response and they made a fantastic selection!

Fiona & Catherine from Darlings Downunder:

This is a very individual matter – believe it or not, there are women who just can’t understand why nappies have to come in so many colours and prints (hi Mum!). But many more love the fact that cloth nappies are so funky. For fitted nappies nappies, I prefer a natural coloured nappy since they’re usually covered by a cover. Otherwise I like bright colours.

Liz of Real Nappies NZ:

Ummm, that’s an interesting one, I like the ‘idea’ of colorful nappies and are drawn to them, but I always seem to come back to white, there is something about the natural, white nappy hanging on your line that I adore. Cute colourful covers are great for summer though, especially under a little dress!

The question for you is: Which do you tend to prefer? Colourful nappies? Printed nappies? Plain coloured nappies?
