Washable Nappies: Top Tips For Using Cloth Nappies In Winter?

Kelly from Nappy Needz:

In the winter, it’s a good idea to use natural fibres as much as possible.  Wool for example, as an outer layer is breathable, and helps to regulate your babies temperature.  Even on very cold days, a wet nappy won’t feel cold against your babies skin.

Fiona from Darlings Downunder:

We live in Melbourne, so we can sometimes have issues getting nappies dry without resorting to a dryer (which we do, now and again!). It’s actually not too bad if you’re home most days as nappies dry quite well on a clothes horse in front of the heater or over a vent. If finding drying time is an issue, and your stash is primarily made up of Pockets or All-in-2s, investing in a few extra inserts or boosters can be a great way of stretching your stash. The shells of Pocket and AI2 nappies dry quickly so can be reused fairly soon after washing, if you’ve got extra inserts on hand. If you prefer Fitted or All-in-One nappies, then adding a few extra to your stash (especially those with faster drying microfibre) can be a way of giving your nappies a little more drying time.

Karen from Baby Blossom:

My favourite nappies in winter are pocket nappies or a system where you can separate the cover from your inserts. These nappies dry quicker and are ready to use again.

Melanie & Diana of Bodeo:

Have a mixture of bamboo & polyester nappies in your stash, also nappies that come apart well as it will speed up drying time. AIOs are a great option for an easy to use nappy, but take longer to dry. Nappies hung on a clothes airer that can be moved in front of a sunny window, or any other source of heat will dry in a couple of days.

Misty from FluffyBuns:

Use Pikapu nappies and nappies with microfibre inserts during winter. They dry so much faster than any other material. They man made fibres do tend to build up with washing powders, so using a hot wash with cannesten during winter will keep those stinky smells away.

Jane from Little Bear Bums:

It’s not always easy to get nappies dry in the winter but I would definitely recommend using the sun as much as you can before using the dryer. There’s no shame in using the dryer sometimes, but the sun is the best thing you can use for stains and smells.
I usually put my nappies outside at least for a little while, or in an under covered area, and then finish them off in the dryer on a low setting.
