Switching From Disposable To The Modern Cloth Nappy?

Tips To Make The Switch to Australian Cloth Nappies as Easy as Pie!

By using any of the many Australian cloth nappies available, you will find the right one for your baby’s needs. When making the switch from disposables to modern cloth nappies (as the vast majority of mums do change from disposables to cloth nappies rather than start out using cloth nappies), there are tips from those more experienced which can make the change much easier, so let’s read on and discover the best tips for changing to reusable nappies…

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:

Switching From Disposable To Cloth? Tips To Make The Switch to the Modern Cloth Nappy as Easy as Pie! 

Angie from Piggy Tails Nappies:

My one tip is try before you buy in bulk.  Don’t get roped into buying 24 of one brand unless you are 100% certain that the particular brand is the only brand you want to use.  Buy a selection of nappies and find out what works for you (because after all, you are the one that is going to have to use these nappies everyday).

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

Start off with one or two nappies, and take it from there. Try borrowing them from a hire scheme or friend, or if that’s not available, getting some second hand ones to try and find out what works best for you and your baby.

Melissa from Little Para Pants:

If your partner is reluctant to use cloth, start with some all-in-one nappies and flushable liners.  This way it’s just as easy as changing a disposable, with the added bonus of being able to flush away any poo!

Susan from Nifty Naps:

Bio degradable liners and a hose connected to your toilet. They make Modern Cloth Nappies even easier!

Melanie & Diana from Bodeo:

Be prepared! Ensure you have a stash of nappies that have been washed and dried at least once. Have an empty bucket ready to store those dirty nappies at home and look at getting a wetbag for when out and about. Have realistic expectations and be experimental as you try different types of nappies.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

Have your nappies all put together and ready to put on just like a disposable is (or use AIOs to make it even easier!)

Erin from Rascal Rumps:

Don’t give up at the first hiccup, like all aspects of parenting, cloth nappying takes a little bit of time to master, with a little bit of persistence you can make a huge difference to the planet and to your hip pocket too!

Nat and Amy from Little Diamond Bums (closed):

Seek advice from a nappy consultant or advocate such as ourselves to help you select a nappy stash that will suit your family needs, whether it is ease of use, drying time or sticking to a budget.
