Australian Cloth Nappies: Help! Don’t Know Where To Start? How About The Mini Stash…

How Part Time Cloth Nappies Saves Money and is an Easy Way to Convert From Disposables to the Modern 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, or on facebook.

Let’s see what they have to say:

Modern Cloth Nappy Newbie Help! Don’t Know Where To Start? How About The Mini Stash… 

Angie from Piggy Tails Nappies:

If you don’t know where to start…try one of everything! Cloth nappies work differently for different babies and you have to buy what suits you (not what has the highest rating score or what your sister bought). The only way you will find out what suits you is by trying one of each type of nappy.

If you are not sure what you need, we recommend that you purchase a package that has at least one of the following:

  • a pocket nappy. Try Green Kids’ Anytimes nappies.
  • a fitted nappy. Try Itti Bitti D’Lish.
  • a one size nappy. Try Cushie Tushies, Grovia Hybrid, Bitti Tutto or Ones&Twos.
  • an all in one (AIO) nappy. Try Tots Bots Easyfit or the GroVia AIO;
  • a snap in one (SIO) nappy. Try the GroVia Hybrid.

You might also want to purchase a wet bag for storing nappies when you are out and about.
See our “New to Cloth – One of Everything” pack in our Nappy Packages section of our website). Our pack has one of each of the above types of nappies in it. We have selected the best selling nappies from each category to take the guess work out of it for our customers.

Buying a pack from a retailer (rather than the manufacturer directly) is the best way to go as you will save on postage because you can buy all the nappies in one spot. A retailer will also be able to provide you with unbiased opinions on what works for them and what sells best so having a chat to a retailer is also a good idea.

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Just get 3 or 5 to start with, so you can use them all in one day, wash them that night, and they’re ready again tomorrow (go for quick to dry nappies, like pockets).  You’ll get a good idea quicker if you have a full day in cloth.

I’m always happy to answer your questions personally, even if you use a different brand.

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

If you’re new to cloth nappies, then a mini stash is a great way to start.  It gives you chance to build up your collection slowly, finding out what works for you and your baby, and means that you aren’t spending a lot of money all at once.  Try out a few different styles and brands, maybe buying second hand to begin with, until you find what really works for you.  Try using the nappies at home to begin with, and then build up to using them full time over time.

Melissa from Little Para Pants:

When my last baby was born we started out with disposables.  After a week or two, I started using MCN just at home, during the day.  When I ran out of the cloth nappies, I’d use disposables again until the cloth nappies were washed & dry.  Slowly over time I was able to find enough time to sew more nappies till we had a big enough stash to switch over completely.

Susan from Nifty Naps:

If you want easy I would go for an AI1 (all in one) or an AI2 (all in two)  – that way you change the whole system when it comes to changing. Then you can move onto the other types out there once you are more aware of whats available.

Melanie & Diana from Bodeo:

A mini stash is a great way to begin using cloth!

Start by choosing a few different styles of nappies you think you’d be interested in using, trial packs are a great option for this. Once you have compiled a small stash of 6-8 nappies and given them a couple of pre-washes, allocate one day in your week to be a Cloth Day. 6-8 nappies should be enough for the day, and then you can wash that night.

If you don’t feel like 8 nappies is enough for a whole load of washing, give the nappies a good rinse and throw them in with your other washing, avoid using fabric softeners. You might like to continue doing this for a little while until you feel comfortable using cloth full time, or you may just want to use cloth when at home.

Once you have more experience using the nappies you have, you are able to confidently add more nappies to your stash using the styles & systems you prefer.

Nat and Amy from Little Diamond Bums (closed):

If switching to cloth a ‘mini stash’ is a great way to trial a few nappies styles to see which one you find yourself impatiently watching to dry so you can pop it back on your babies bottom.  It is also a great way to ease yourself into using cloth nappies. Whether you start using them at home during the day and then when you’re feeling more confident using them out and about/ during the night, add more to your stash to go ‘full time’.

Jodi from MCN Lovers R Us:

Its great to try a mix of different brands and nappy styles but the best advice is shop to your budget. 5-10 nappies is a great place to start part time just to try things out. (Even if you decide to never go full time using 5-10 cloth nappies each week makes a difference.) Think about what is important to you in a nappy, do you want something that dries quickly, something that you won’t need to put together after washing before its ready to use, something made of all natural fibres, something to fit for a long time? Talk to other nappy users and get their opinions of what works for them and an explanation of whats what in the nappy world – there are heaps of pages online where you can connect to the nappy community, I know because I run one of them! The nappy world can be a little confusing but its also a pretty friendly place and all MCN lovers/users love to share the love of cloth!

Erin from Rascal Rumps:

Using cloth doesn’t have to be all or nothing, you can use a combination of cloth and disposable. Starting with a mini stash will mean you have less outlay in the beginning and you can get a feel for whether cloth nappying is something that you can be comfortable with.

How Do I Damage a Washable Modern Cloth Nappy?

baby instructionsDamaging Your Washable Modern Cloth Nappy – How NOT to!

Knowing How Washable Nappies Are Damaged Will Help You Avoid This Pitfall And Extend The Life (And Savings) Offered By Using MCN…

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 our nappy experts have to share with us about our MCN topic:  How do I damage a modern cloth nappy?

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

Not washing frequently enough, soaking in bleaches/sanitisers, washing too hot, coating with creams, tumble drying on hot.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

How you wash your nappies can affect them. Do not use bleach, napisan or fabric softeners. The way nappies are hung on the line can also damage the elastic. Place them flat or drape them over the line sideways to prevent pressure being put on the elastic and if you are using a nappy rash cream make sure you use a liner.

Melissa from Little Para Pants recommends:

Lots of ways. If you leave it in the wet bag/bucket too long, it can grow mould. Using vinegar in the wash will eat away the elastic and possibly delaminate PUL. If you use a Snappi on a non-Snappi-able nappy, you’ll get holes, runs, or leaks.

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

I have had then come out grey after something new went in the wash with them, turning EVERYTHING grey, sigh. The first time a new night nappy was used, hubby washed it, without turning it inside out – so, sigh, pilling, no more of that pristine beauty of a new nappy, just like that – BAM! What do I recommend? A tip one mum left on the blog here was to put a capful of disinfectant in with the pre-rinse. Good tip that I always do now.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Using zinc & petroleum based nappy creams can affect the fibres of MCNs and reduce their absorbency. Be sure to use a liners (either flushable or microfleece if you must use a chemical-based nappy rash cream). Over use of the dryer on your nappies can deteriorate elastic and PUL, so keep dryer time to a minimum. Leaving wet nappies in a bucket for too long isn’t a good idea either, try to wash every second day if possible. Speaking of buckets, don’t soak your nappies in bleach, it can destroy the fabric of your nappies and this too will reduce their absorbency. Dry pailing is best!

Cheap Cloth Nappies – Recommendations for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash…

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

Cheap Cloth Nappies – What Is Your Recommendation for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash?

You want to get your cloth Nappy Stash on the cheap to get started? Here are our experts’ tips on buying a budget friendly stash of cloth nappies…

Many mums are on one or a reduced income while there are little ones in nappies, and saving money is a high priority. Perhaps, a cheap stash is needed to get started, to save more money so better modern cloth nappies can be saved up for. What is the best advice? Let’s find out…

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 about our modern cloth nappy question:

Cheap Cloth Nappies – What Is Your Recommendation for A Budget-Friendly Washable Cloth Nappy Stash?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

There are plenty of options out there if you are looking for something reasonably priced, you don’t have to rely on flat nappies either.  Although nappies are expensive to buy upfront, don’t forget that you’ll be saving quite a bit by using them, so it works out slightly more reasonable.  You can often sell them on after use, which helps with the cost, and it’s also worth looking at what you can get hold of second hand.  A good fitted nappy would be our one size, made from recycled cotton, it’s reasonably priced, and will last from birth onwards.

Karen from Baby Blossom:

Keep it simple. A easy system is the Weehuggers where you can change the inserts at change time and not the whole nappy. You do not need to buy a nappy for every change. Have 4-6 covers and lots of inserts.

Liz from Hatchlings Cloth Nappies:

There are a couple of options for budget-friendly stash, terry flats and pilchers are very budget friendly but for me I would use prefolds/tri-folds and covers that way you can still achieve the trim fit and cute look of some of the more expensive options without the price tag. Also make sure you do your math when weighing up the options, some of  the all-in-two options work out significantly less expensive than all-in-ones or pockets as you don’t need any where near as many covers.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies:

I would start with prefolds as these can be used as boosters later on and buy one sized fits most nappies for when the baby is bigger. I recommend either Booroi or Ish Fly prefolds.  A cheaper one size nappy that I have found to be excellent with my son is the Organic Bugalugs Smooth Nappies. They fit from approximately 4kgs and are a pocket nappy which makes it easier to add extra boosters for overnight or if your child is a heavier wetter.

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

A dozen Mandy Mac MacBoos and a dozen Pikapu AIOs, and 7 Pikapu covers are a good combination to start off with. Having a mixture of bamboo & polyester nappies will ensure that you have super absorbent and quick drying nappies. A OSFM nappy is a great option for not having to buy a new set of nappies each time your baby goes up a size. If you add 6 prefolds to the mix, you’ve added 6 nappies to your stash, and also have the option of stuffing the pockets with a folded up prefold to increase absorbency – great for night time.

Misty from FluffyBuns:

All cloth nappies are budget friendly when compared to disposables. To keep your costs down even further, go for nappies that have removable inserts, this way you can have three or four inserts per nappy shell, the shells dry in a matter of hours and you can just use a new insert. Plus you don’t need to wash the shell everytime, only if it gets wet or soiled.

Jane from Little Bear Bums:

It depends on which type you end up using – for  a pocket nappy I love Issy Bears because they are One Size Fits Most and made with quality materials so they’ll last for the time you need them and beyond (therefore you won’t be replacing them so they’ll be cost effective)! If you prefer a sized nappy I love Itti Bitti D’lish – fantastic quality and a choice between Snap Ins and All in ones.

Organic Goodness… What are the Benefits of Organic or Unbleached Cloth Nappies?

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

Organic Goodness: What are the Benefits of Organic or Unbleached Cloth Nappies?

Organic – this brings to mind the idea of less chemicals, a reduced ecological impact over regular farming and manufacturing processes, and thoughts about sensitive baby skin.

When looking around at the sort of reusable cloth nappies you want to buy for your baby, you’ll see a lot of shops will offer you information and products that are organic, unbleached or ‘natural’. What does this mean when it comes to non disposable 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:

Why do mums choose organic, unbleached or natural nappies?

Louise from Nip Naps:

People are much more aware now about environmental issues and doing things that damage the environment unnecessarily. Most people are more than happy to have unbleached nappies because it uses less chemicals during manufacture and doesn’t make any difference to how the nappy works. I think people are also less inclined to bleach unbleached nappies during washing because they are not trying to maintain the pristine white of when they were new. Organic Cotton is also a wonderful product – not only are there less chemicals used in it’s growing/manufacture, there are less chemical residues in the fibres that sit next to your baby’s skin.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

Because a young infant’s skin is thinner than an adult, so any residues from manufacturing regular fabric may enter the baby’s system through their skin. Organic fabric are minimally processed so they have less chemical residues, are usually softer and more absorbent than their regularly processed counterparts.

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

A lot of mums choose organic nappies just so they know there are no chemicals coming in contact with their babies skin, this is especially important for bubs with sensitive skin or eczema who may react to bleaches, dies or plastics in other nappies. Others like knowing that their nappies are more environmentally sensitive with no pesticides used in the production of the materials.

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

Some babies can have sensitivities to the man made fibres. Some people just prefer to be organic. For different reasons people prefer difference fabrics. For me it was a matter of testing out the different fabrics on the market to see what worked best for me and my children.

Misty from Fluffybuns:

I know that I would rather have only ‘natural’ fibres close to my bubba’s bum. Most mcn’s are made with bamboo which doesn’t use much water to grow, although the microfibre alternative dries in no time and is comfy on bubba’s bum, and they are just as safe.

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

Your precious baby has delicate skin and that skin deserves the best! Organic nappies ensure that your baby is not affected by harsh chemicals and they reduce the risk of nappy rash and eczema. When you know that no regular disposable nappy ever made has broken down, you realise what a terrible impact they are to our planet. In this day and age of information and technology, we are well-informed enough to know what is happening in the world and this is an issue that needs to be addressed. We have a responsibility to our earth to protect it and to do our part to preserve it for our children and our children’s children.

Help From Our Nappy Experts: Help! Too Many Nappy Leaks – What Can I Do?

Leaking Nappies – What Can I do?

Leaks are one of the FAQ about nappies, whether they be blowouts from a disposable, or just regular piddle leaks. There are a number of reasons, and a variety of solutions.

Read on to see the solutions and suggestions Our Nappy Experts have offered to Elise, a mum whose young baby’s nappy is leaking several times a day…

Hi there, I must be doing something wrong. I get at least 3 or 4 big leaks a day and still change them every 2-3 hours. My baby is 6.5 months old and is quite a long lean baby at 7. 5kgs. I have the kind that has the insert in a pocket and the nappies have snaps to adjust. Am just about to give up – in fact he’s in a disposable now as the 2nd outfit got wrecked before I got out the door this morning. My nappies are relatively new so I doubt it it build up of product – and I washed them several times first – not much detergent and no softeners etc. I’m not even sure where the leak is coming from – i.e. sides or top. There is a bit of a gap at the top but the size smaller is really tight. They also seem to wriggle down so that could be a problem. I noticed the other day when he was in the pram for a few hours he was fine but when he gets moving and crawling they seem to leak… Any help is appreciated. Thanks so much. I really want to keep using them. – Elise

Hi Elise, I sent a request to our list of Nappy Experts, and below I have compiled the responses as a new article. Thanks for your question, there is no doubt that others are having the same problems. Let’s hope their helpful suggestion can find you a solution! – Charndra

Tam from Baby Mumma:

Hi Elise, I would suggest trying a different brand. There are a lot of different types of nappies available and some fit certain shapes better than others. You also tend to pay what you get for IMO. If you are not sure what to look for there are places that also offer a library service where you can try many different brands before you buy.

Missy from Fluffy Buns:

Some brands or nappy styles don’t suit all babies, it could be that the nappies you are using are not fitting your baby well. A strip wash* is basically a long wash with dish liquid in the machine, lots of bubbles to really clean the nappies, and then keep rinsing until no bubbles are left. If this hasn’t helped I would suggest trying a different style, a nappy without PUL and using a cover may help, these nappies are all absorbent and less likely to leak, a nice wool cover will prevent and moisture getting out. The mother ease bamboo nappy with a woollybottoms cover are the way to go. * See more information on Strip Washing at the end of the responses, below.

Michelle from Sustainable Hemp Products:

Hi Elise. It’s either a fit or absorbency problem- there are a number of things you can do- if it is not enough absorbency you can add extra absorbency to the nappy with a lay in booster against bubs skin, you can also use a cover and wool would be ideal as it absorbs what the nappy doesn’t and also waterproofs, and also if it is the actual fit of the nappy you may have to change brands.

Cassie from Itty Bitty Bums:

It may be from nappy rash creams? If you use zinc based creams it can build up on your nappy and it is very hard to remove. Or you may have to put more absorbency in the nappy? Or really you may just have to try another brand! I hope this helps, I hope you don’t give up on using them!

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed):

Hi Elise,

You didn’t mention how many boosters you are using, and what sort: at around 6 months you generally need more absorbency than you did before.

Assuming the fit is right (no gaping) and the inners aren’t repelling (do a strip wash), it could simply be a case of adding another booster.

In the nappies I make for instance, there’s a microfiber booster (3 layers) and a bamboo booster (2 layers of thick, fleece bamboo). If your equivalent is less than this, try adding another booster. I recommend adding an extra bamboo after bub is 6 months anyway, to get longer out of each nappy.

There’s strip-wash instructions and trouble-shooting on my website, see my Extremely Nappies FAQ

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

Hi Elise,

Since you’ve said the nappies are quite new I would be checking the fit around your son’s legs, and also the absorbency of the inserts. It’s really important to get a tight fit around the thighs, this can be hard with OSFM nappies, and if you are using sized nappies they might be a bit too big. As soon as you a bit of a gape around the legs the wee will run straight out rather than being soaked up. As for the inserts, try doubling up whatever inserts you have in one nappy, and if that works then they probably just aren’t absorbent enough so you’ll have to use a booster 🙂

Hope that helps!

Wet Bags are Wonderful! Why do Mums Like Wet Bags?

WIN a modern cloth nappy - Join our Giveaways List

Wet Bags are wonderful! Why do Mums like wet bags?

Wetbags are simply a bag that is used to transport either dry or wet nappies. They contain any odours, wetness and can actually be used for many different purposes, not just 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:

Wet Bags are wonderful! Why do Mums like wet bags?

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

– Wet bags are washable and can hold moisture and smells in.

– They come in various colours and prints.

– After baby out grows nappies, the wet bag can be used to hold clothing, swim gear, beach gear… anything you like really!

Michelle from Cloth ‘n’ Craft:

Reusable! Pretty! I find them particularly useful for holding my toilet training boy’s weed on clothes!

Nyssa from Snow Pea Nappies:

Wet bags are a necessity, and certainly one I couldn’t live without! Take them out with you to hold dirty nappies, wipes, bibs and washers; use them to hold cloth baby wipes to keep them damp while you’re out; use them to hold the wrappers and leftovers from lunch and snacks when there are no bins handy; or take them to the pool to hold swimmers and towels with no leaks.

Look for bags with sealed seams to help prevent leaks, and I find zip or velcro closures are best to contain smells.

Louise from Nip Naps:

Wet bags really are fantastic (I didn’t have one for my first baby – sob!). Use them for you dirty nappies when you are out and about sure, but there are a million other uses. Basically, anytime you would have used an old supermarket shopping bag you can use a wetbag instead – wet/dirty clothes from the park, food or drinks that might spill (maybe not the same bag you use for your dirty nappies!) and my personal favourite is to get a large size and use it as a swimming bag. This is one nappying item you will not be wondering what to do with when your baby outgrows nappies.

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

You can never have too many wetbags! Great for travelling so you don’t need to lug a plastic bucket. Great for taking to the pool to keep, make up and the most important great for keeping stinkies enclosed!

Misty from Fluffybuns:

Great for keeping re-usable wipes in, containing wet nappies, they are great for swimmers, wet knickers (during TT), make up bags, the list is endless, you just can’t go without them.

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

Wet bags are not only brilliant for locking away nasty smells, but they can also be used for all sorts of things. We stock a range from handbag size to larger sizing for long days out. Use it for storing your baby’s dirty bibs or clothes, wet baby wipes, damp towels/washers, swimmers – the uses are endless! Plus, with their chic designs and colours, having a wet bag can help start a conversation to promote cloth nappies.

Looking for Australian Cloth Nappy Shops? Where to Shop for Modern Cloth Nappies in Australia

There are now so many places you can purchase Modern Cloth Nappies in Australia from the ease of your home computer. Australian Cloth Nappies are generally easier on your budget in comparison to the constant drain of disposable nappies that are only used once then thrown away. They are far more green and are very cute and stylish and a fashion statement. Join the popular trend of having a minumum of one reusable cloth nappy for your baby!

There is a wide range of shops offering Aussie and Kiwi cloth nappies. Over 350 online shops selling modern nappies in Australia and New Zealand in fact.

From WAHM made, customised, personalised nappies, to nappies made with tried and tested licensed designs, through to retailers offering commercially made modern nappies that have been around long enough, and are popular enough to have been commercially produced.
