In Search of the Best Cloth Nappies: Cloth Nappy ‘Starter Packs’ or ‘Trial Packs’

Modern Cloth Nappy ‘Starter Packs’ or ‘Trial Packs’: – the goal of this article is to clarify for you what Cloth Nappy ‘Starter Packs’ or ‘Trial Packs’:means – and to introduce you to some of the cloth nappy shops who offer them.

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. These nappy retailers and nappy makers have been asked to describe Cloth Nappy ‘Starter Packs’ or ‘Trial Packs’ for you in their own way, depending on the time thay had available to contribute when I asked; you’ll see quick, concise definitions as well as detailed explanations that reveal more about the composition of the nappy fabrics, materials and designs. I am certain you will discover everything you need to know about them in their brief or detailed descriptions – I did! Once you know, pop over and look at their ranges of trial or starter packs of cloth nappies with your enhanced understanding of the features and benefits of getting started with modern nappies in this way.

Laura of Cloth Nappy Co:

These are a great way of trying out nappies you have never used before.  They are also a great way of trying out different styles of cloth nappies within a particular brand you aren’t familiar with.  A small discount usually applies and you get the benefit of trying before committing to a large investment.

Kelly from Pepper Place:

Generally, a small selection of nappies in a pack so you can try them out and decide on what suits your child, without spending lots of money.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

Both types of packs give you a chance to try out different nappies, plus a few accessories. ‘starter packs’ usually include some basic tools to start using cloth nappies, while ‘trial packs’ may only consist solely of cloth nappies and cloth accessories.

Now you know exactly what a Modern Cloth Nappy ‘Starter Pack’ or ‘Trial Pack’ is and what to look for when shopping for them.

To summarise this series of articles about the meaning of the various nappy styles, Amy of WeePantz clarifies the main components of modern nappies, to reassure you that it is actually easy to choose the nappy style that suits your lifestyle, baby and budget:

Essentially, all nappies are comprised of similar components, remembering this helps us to not get confused when looking at new brands or styles of nappies.

The main components of a nappy are:

1. Absorbency (whether it be sewn in on an AIO, Stuffed in a pocket or the entire nappy in a fitted or a flat or a prefold)

2. Waterproofing (covers, PUL layers, woollen soakers etc)

3. Stay Dry Layer (flushable or washable liners, or the microfleece/suedecloth layer in a nappy)

4. Fastening (Velcro, snappis and snaps)

When we remember that, I think its easy to figure out what a nappy needs to have in it, and how we want our nappy system to work. For example if you want it all in one you get an AIO, if you don’t mind attaching stuff, then you can look into other options like pockets, AI2’s, fitteds etc. A parent can decide what is right for them rather than being confused by all the options available.
