Advice about using modern cloth nappies… How can mums get the best advice on their little questions?

Information and advice on modern nappies is something Mums need when starting out. Beyond the basics of how many nappies, what brand, which style, there are the ‘little questions’ you’ll be wondering about. If your friends don’t know, where do you turn?

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. You’ll find masses of tips and tricks here at within the cooperative questions answered by our many Nappy Experts sharing their wisdom with you…

Let’s see what they have to say:

Advice about using modern cloth nappies… How can mums get the best advice on their little questions?

Louise from Nip Naps:

There is a lot of information on the internet about MCN but I still think the best advice comes straight from your nappy seller. They should know their products inside out and be able to help you with even the most tricky of questions. If you don’t have a nappy seller that is happy to reply quickly and informatively to your questions then you need a new nappy seller.

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

Don’t be afraid to ask questions, you may think that what you want to know sounds silly, were we have probably been asked or even in the situation. Hop onto nappy forums, alot of different forums can be found on the ANN website.

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

The best place to start is to ask the people you plan to buy from, they know the ins and outs of the nappies they sell, and usually have been using cloth themselves for long enough to answer most general questions about MCN’s as well. The other option, and the best if you want an unbiased opinion about which nappies are best for you, is to visit a forum or similar. There are several pages on Facebook dedicated to cloth nappies and the best i’ve found for giving opinions and advice is “buy and sell your modern cloth nappies”.

Misty from Fluffybuns:

By visiting us at or here at My Green Nappy.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

I’m happy to answer your questions. I have used many different nappy brands from newborn to toilet training in the last 4-5 years or so, and have fitted many babies of different shapes and sizes with what I know about how most brands fit.

I get plenty of enquiries from people who use my contact form online. I’m in the middle of compiling an FAQ section, so these questions I get are invaluable!

Other places to get great nappy info and advice would be on my website, my blog (work in progress) and in forums, like Nappycino, my favourite forum. Just ask a question and you’ll get lots of helpful answers from different forum members.

Marnie from Noonee Wilga:

OzClothNappies email list, Australian Nappy Network FAQ, Nappycino forum are great sources of general information about modern cloth nappies. If you have specific questions about a nappy or what is most suitable for you, then I highly recommend emailing the maker directly. I love helping people to work out what would be best for their situation.

Michelle from Cloth ‘n’ Craft:

Asking a retailer is helpful – particularly if the retailer is prompt and detailed in their responces (which I try to be!) however the forums are also helpful, as you will often get to read the experience of a whole bunch of people on a specific topic. Just search on google (or similar search engine) for a few key words and adding “forum” to the search will help find forums posts with people discussing your issue.

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

I suggest always contacting the retailer for any suggestions on what cloth nappy is right for you, caring instructions or general queries. As a WAHM I have first-hand experience too.

See our list of Dedicated Cloth Nappy Forums and our list of Parenting Support Forums, another place to ask your cloth nappy questions.
