My Green Nappy Discovering Modern Cloth Nappies and Eco-Friendly Disposable Nappies

February 25, 2013

Meet Our Guest: Destination Green

Let’s Meet Emma, the proud owner of Destination Green:

Hi, my name is Emma and I’m from Sydney. I started my career as a waste educator and currently work as an environmental scientist. I am definitely a “greenie” at heart and initially loved the idea that i could help minimise my first born daughters carbon footprint by using cloth nappies. Seeing how easy it was we are continuing to use them on our second! Just to take it that one step further we started Destination Green to get more people using them!

About Destination Green:

My husband and I own “Destination Green”. It seems all the nappy shops/brands have cute and fluffy names but we came up with the name Destination Green as we want to grow over time to become more than just nappies. We want to become the go-to shop for all things sustainable especially for those on a budget.

Destination Green sells pocket one size fits most nappies, we also have newborn/premmie nappies, with bamboo and double gusset nappies coming soon. We have loads of nappy accessories including some great wet bags and bamboo training pants.

We offer all our facebook fans/likers a FREE gift with their first purchase, and we are always having other specials.

As an environmental scientist i have concerns about all aspects of the environment especially with regard to climate change. Anything we can do to minimise our impact on the environment and help others do the same by making sustainable purchases for our children will help, remembering “every little bit counts”.

When you visit Destination Green make sure you have a look at:

  1. Our Shop – all our cute designer nappies at affordable prices.
  2. Nappy Debate – get real life calculations on how much you can save by using modern cloth nappies.
  3. Blog – It’s not just about bums! It’s about giving you ideas on how to embed sustainability into your children’s life.

Here are three of my favourite sites:

  1. Nappies on a mission – if you no longer need your cloth nappies consider donating them to orphanages through nappies on a mission.
  2. An amazing mum entrepreneur network
  3. Amazing pre-natal, post-natal pilates and massage

Question for readers: How did you convince your partners to go on the cloth nappy journey with you?

Which is better if you’re planning to have more than 1 bub in modern cloth nappies: Sized cloth nappies or one-size nappies?

As you know, using cloth nappies means saving money, even over the nappy stage of ONE baby. Multiply that over two or more children and some serious savings can mount up. Within that there are two choices: sized cloth nappies or one-size cloth nappies. Find out the features, benefits and drawbacks of each style to help you choose…

Let’s see what they have to say:

Which is better if you’re planning to have more than 1 bub in modern cloth nappies: Sized cloth nappies or one-size nappies?

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

This is a really personal choice, for me I loved the one size fits most. I had a 2 year old and a new baby in the one nappy. For me it meant that I only had to grab one type of nappy that would fit both of them. Also is a great cost consideration, you get to use that nappy for the entire 2-3 years and really get your monies worth. Our pikapu’s have been through both our children and would last another if we decide to have more.

Jenny from Baby Bare:

Sized nappies can be great – but the reality is that with a few years between bub’s many parents complain that the elastic is gone in their nappies by the time they pull them out to re-use them. So in reality your nappies may not last after being stored away. You also face the cost of replacing nappies several times, usually within a short period as baby’s go through a few sizes in their first 12 months.

A one size nappy may not fit as well at different stages, especially with a newborn. Most require the baby to be a month or so old before they fit into the nappies. But usually from a few months till toilet training you can get a good fit. With so many options you can find a nappy that is still trim and fits your baby right through.

I honestly believe if a parent want’s sized nappies they are best to get newborns and then a OSFM as its hardest to get a good fit with OSFM on a newborn.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

I think the best bet is to get mostly OSFM and some small nappies for the first month or so (if bub needs smthg smaller) and larger nappies/pull ups etc if needed when babies get bigger.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

– One size fits most (OSFM) pocket nappies with poppers are great as they can be used from birth to potty training.

Meet Our Guest: Pepper Place – Modern Cloth Nappies and more!

Let’s Meet Kelly from Pepper Place:

Hi! My name is Kelly and I live in Tasmania (currently…..we move quite a bit!). I have a husband and five kids between 8 and 3. That’s their ages, not the only time in the day that I have them-so life is busy, but that’s just the way I like it. Something about me? I’m always experimenting with things. I always need a challenge, either in my hobbies (sewing, crochet, gardening, cooking) to our lifestyle (like living off-grid recently for 18 months, then travelling in a tent for nine months). The current (and long-term ongoing) project is increasing the amount of food we produce ourselves-recently adding meat, an interesting learning curve for former vegetarians.

About Pepper Place…

– My specialty is one-size nappies. I had my kids close, and had three kids in full-time nappies for a long time. I noticed there really wasn’t much difference in nappy sizes, and they all seemed to fit for much longer than the size recommendations, so after making sized fitteds to sell for a year or so I decided one-size was the way to go. Lots of others seem to share my view!
I give discounts for people with a Carers Card. Kids with special needs usually need to spend longer in nappies-my son with special needs was in day nappies until 3 and continues to wear a night nappy at 6. When you need so much more every saving counts.
– I’ve recently started selling tie-dyed kids clothes after turning my kids into rainbows for the past four years-although there’s not many pictures up yet, they’ll keep coming as I love doing it.

Our Planet Matters!

Oh dear, I’m a rampant greenie, where do I start?! If I had to pick just one thing to stop, it would be our silly, greedy use of resources. We’re gobbling up all of our non-renewable resources at a truly mind-boggling rate, mostly on silly things that we don’t need that don’t improve our quality of life -and very few people are planning for what we’re all going to do when it starts to run out.

When you visit Pepper Place, make sure you have a look at:

1. My tutorials, I love encouraging DIY-so much so that i’m releasing my patterns for home and licensed use in early 2013.
2. My product information – everything explained.

3 of my favourite sites are:

1. Eden Seeds – as a keen gardener this is my favourite site to make orders from.
2. Milkwood Permaculture – I love what these guys do! From rocket stoves to inground aquaponics, there’s always something to get me thinking.
3. Auslan Signbank – with a partially deaf child Auslan was our natural choice for our home education second language…….and it’s so much fun!

A question from Kelly:

One-sized nappies or multi-sized nappies-what’s your preference and why?

Switching From Disposable To Cloth? Tips To Make The Switch to Australian Cloth Nappies as Easy as Pie!

WIN a modern cloth nappy – Join our Giveaways List

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.

Girls in Cloth Nappies… What You Need to Know About Girl ‘Parts’ and the Cloth Nappy.

Girls in Cloth Nappies…

What You Need to Know About Girl ‘Parts’ and the Cloth Nappy.

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:

Girls in cloth nappies… What do I need to know about girl ‘parts’ and the cloth nappy?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Girls wet the front and middle the most, so ensure your absorbent layers (boosters for pocket nappies) are maximised at the front.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

With girls we found that with our little girl we never needed more than what the pikapu nappy had within it during the day. At night we would put around 2 boosters (holds 100mL each) in to get her through the night. She was a back sleeper so this worked well. If she had been a tummy sleeper we may have put a little extra in the front, as this is what we found with our little boy, being a tummy sleeper, oh and wellbeing a boy and they pee differently anyway.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

Be aware of what you’re washing your nappies in as you dont want chemicals sitting against your babies genitals. If your baby has a rash then treat it with whatever works but be aware that most nappy creams are not modern cloth nappy friendly – thats what liners are for 🙂 I find boosting extra in the mid section works best for my little girl, giving more absorbency but not bulking her up all over unnecessarily.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

 Modern cloth nappies fit just like disposable nappies, so no need to do anything different when it comes to ‘girl’ bits. Just fit them as you would with your disposable nappy.

Australian Modern Cloth Nappy Covers – Which is Best: Wool, PUL or Fleece?

WIN a modern cloth nappy – Join our Giveaways List

Australian Modern Cloth Nappy Covers

Which is Best in Covers for Your Nappies: Wool, PUL or Fleece?

Covers have come a long way. No longer sweaty plastic, you have many more modern options to select from. Wool, PUL or Fleece are the most popular choices in covers for your fitted nappies today.

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:

Modern Cloth Nappy Covers – Which is Best: Wool, PUL or Fleece?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

If your bub has sensitive skin or eczema, you might want to avoid wool.  I find PUL more waterproofing than fleece, and trimmer too. But microfleece (very thin fleece, also called microchamois) is great to line nappies.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

It’s really a personal choice of what you feel will work best for you, for us we have found the pikapu cover to be perfect as it has twin leg gussets that prevent leakages and we never get a leak with them. As a cover to you can choose whatever inner you would like to use, micro fleece, bamboo, hemp prefolds or fitted’s. They are a PUL cover and have found they can be used numerous times before needing a wash. Although recommendations for hygiene is to wash them every 2-3 changes.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

I like to use wool or fleece over PUL covers for night use. Wool is far better but fleece is more affordable.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

PUL – no leaks, great for sensitive skin, funky designs.

Why I DON’T Prefer Disposable Nappies Over Australian Cloth Nappies…

WIN a modern cloth nappy – Join our Giveaways List

Why I DON’T Prefer Disposable Nappies Over Australian Cloth Nappies…

Disposable Nappies are marketed as ‘Convenience’ Nappies, as in fact they aren’t really disposable – they persist in the environment for too long, whereas a cloth nappy will (mostly) degrade over time, and be used on several babies.

What encouraged you to make the switch to cloth nappies, when it is so simple to buy a bag each week at the shops…?

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:

Why I DON’T Prefer Disposable Nappies…

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Disposables are expensive (10 times more expensive than cloth) – if you buy disposables you’re giving your money to evil multinationals. Cheap disposables often cause severe nappy rash.  All disposables are full of chemicals, and potential risks include toxic shock syndrome.  Disposing of them causes mountains of pollution including human excrement in our landfill.  That rubbish will continue polluting our planet long after our lifetimes. I don’t buy disposables because I don’t want to buy rubbish, pollute the planet, or support evil multinationals.  As a consequence, our eco-footprint is small, our rubbish bin never stinks and we’ve saved about $10 000.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

There are many reasons why we made the choice to cloth over disposables. Firstly our daughter was allergic to them (as they have all sorts of chemicals and gels inside them to make them work so who knows what you are putting on babies bum), with cloth we knew there were no harsh chemicals on babies bum, also the bin, with many disposable nappy parents they say they never have enough room in their bin for standard rubbish and that these nappies can take up to 500 years to decompose which is a frightful thought. So that means every nappy ever made is still sitting in landfill somewhere.

Then there is the cost, it may seem like a lot to fork out for a set of cloth nappies but that is then it. So for example a full time set of pikapu nappies is around $600 for 24 nappies and using disposables for 2 ½ years is around $3000, more if bub is in nappies for longer.

Then the cost is more if you have more children.

Then there is style, they look so cute and they make you feel good because you are doing something good for baby, good for the environment and good for your hip pocket, it’s a win for everyone.

In saying that there is no rule to say you have to go either way, you can always do both. Do cloth at home during the day and use disposables sparingly when you are out or overnight while you build confidence in switching to cloth.

Jenny from Baby Bare:

Cloth is just far superior. Its soft and luxurious for baby. They can wear the nappy as an outfit with a cute top in summer (and look so cute). Girls can wear a cloth nappy under a dress with no need for covers or bloomers. Cloth is also cheaper – money that can be spent on so many other things rather then nappies we throw in the bin!

And with a baby, whats an extra load of washing every few days.

A little anecdote – Our neighbours have two babies in disposables. Their bin is packed so full the lid is open each week. The other day the nappies were strewn all up our street and the parents were out there cleaning them up. It made me realise how full their bin was with nappies and how empty ours is without (and what a embarrassing and yucky job to pick up all those nappies).

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

Because I want lots of babies and don’t want to leave them a world full of used disposable nappies!

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Expensive & full of nasty chemicals.

What Do You Recommend as the Best Australian Modern Cloth Nappies for Larger Babies and Toddlers?

WIN a modern cloth nappy – Join our Giveaways List

What Do You Recommend as the Best Modern Cloth Nappies for Larger Babies and Toddlers?

If your baby has a ‘buddha belly’ or thunder thighs, or is now a toddler, which are the best styles of Australian cloth nappies to choose from?

We’ve asked our panel of nappy experts to recommend the best cloth nappy to consider in these situations. Read on for a range of brands to examine.

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:

What do you recommend as the best modern cloth nappies for larger babies and toddlers?

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

You can go for a sized nappy in large.  Extremely Nappies come in Super Size, to fit 2-5 year olds.  They have an extra absorbancy for bigger bladders: giving 6 layers of bamboo, 3 of microfiber.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

Pikapu is a perfect choice for larger babies and toddlers, the size range says it fits to 18kg but customers have reported that the nappy is fitting their 20kg toddler.

Helen from EzyPeezies:

I would recommend EzyPeezies pull-up bamboo nappies as the best modern cloth nappy for larger babies and toddlers. I have designed these nappies myself, based on my knowledge, experience and needs as a cloth nappy-ing mum of two. The super elastic waist means that they have a lot of give, fitting babies and toddlers well past 3 .They also pull up and down easily when they reach the standing stage, making them super easy to change on the go and fantastic for toilet training.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Baba + Boo, UK award winning nappies as they are adjustable by poppers from birth (approx. 3.5kg) to potty training (approx. 15kg). Baba + Boo nappies have been designed by Eve Bell to ensure the best fit possible for your little one. They are not a generic nappy made in China with the Baba+Boo brand attached, they are one of a kind.

Let’s see what they have to say:

Boys in cloth nappies… What you need to know about boy ‘bits’ and the cloth nappy.

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Aim his willy down. The front of the nappy is the wettest area, so ensure your absorbent layers (boosters for pocket nappies) are maximised at the front.

Carly from Pikapu Modern Cloth Nappies:

We found with boys bits you need more absorbency in the front, so with our Pikapu nappy we simply put a prefold in at night time and concentrated it more in the front and he was fine. During the day we found that we didn’t really need boosting, the nappy as it was, was fine. It really depends on how they sleep as well, if they are a tummy or back sleeper.

Kate from Bouncing Sprouts:

Modern cloth nappies fit just like disposable nappies, so no need to do anything different when it comes to ‘boy’ bits. Just fit them as you would with your disposable nappy.
