Getting started in the cloth nappy marketplace… How did you begin selling your nappies?

The great thing about the Internet is that it gives Mums a great opportunity to start a small business with only a minimal outlay. Lots of cloth nappy shops begin as a shop on a trading site, as a blog or on facebook, or simply at local markets, later becoming a website as interest in their brand grows and orders build up. Lots of Mums consider an online business, let’s see how the mums running online nappy shops got started. Perhaps you can use their experiences to build a business of your own…

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what they have to say:

Getting started in the cloth nappy marketplace… How did you begin selling your nappies?

Marnie from Noonee Wilga:

I could not find tiny training pants and underwear for my daughter back in 2002 so I began to make them for her. Others requested similar custom-made trainers and underwear, and later nappies, so I began making them for sale.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

I started off telling friends who were going to be mums about cloth nappies, and got a few converted over from disposables that way. I then became a cloth nappy demonstrator for an Aussie retailer and did a few demos here and there. I then started bean Sprout Bubba and took over Bubba J early 2009 and started selling my wares at a monthly craft market. The decision was made also to offer a few more nappy brands that I had used before with great success, and here we are.

Michelle from Cloth ‘n’ Craft:

Through my online site! I listed on a few free advertising sites and it all started from there!

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

I started making nappies to save myself some money and asked a few friends to test them, with the intention of just making nappies for them as well, the first batch I made attracted so much interest that I started selling them in my local community and then after a few inquiries from friends of friends living further away I launched my face book page and the rest, as they say, is history!

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

I began selling nappies after using cloth for 2 years. It took 6 months of research before launching my business. I believed there was some room for me and my products. I have tried and use all products I sell and I believe in them. I also like to share the cloth nappy lurve 😉 and this is a wonderful outlet to do so!

Misty from Fluffybuns:

With my online store, hoping to open my bricks and mortar store in the near future.

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

After using cloth nappies on my daughter I became passionate about how practical, economical and environmentally friendly cloth nappies are. I can’t believe regular disposables are still allowed to be sold!

  1. I discovered modern cloth nappies through my sister. We were pregnant about the same time.

    Much like answers offered by your panel of experts, I am enthusiastic about reusable nappies for their ease-of-use, resilience, adjustable styles, designs and options for absorbent materials. I also have an eco-friendly spirit and know parents appreciate an economical choice. I was amazed at the range of prices of cloth nappies and looked into different manufacturers before starting the Oz Nappies brand label.
