You Asked, We Answered
WHAT IS THE BEST CLOTH NAPPY?
There is no single best nappy. Each parent and child has different experiences. What one parent loves another dislikes.
We recommend trying a range of different styles on your baby. You can do this by grabbing a trial pack from a brand or trying multiple brands. Some stockists offer packs with lots of brands and styles.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW BEFORE I CHOOSE A BRAND/NAPPY
We recommend looking at established Australian brands with products that are tried and tested. Its not unusual for new brands to arrive on the market and leave soon after. Brands with a long history are more likely to be there for any warranty claims or support. Further, they have manufacturing experience and know how to produce a high quality product.
You may need to question your own values when purchasing and decide if you want Australian made, Australian owned, ethical manufacturing etc.
We recommend trying a nappy before buying a full set. Don't get caught up in the hype before trying something.
HOW MANY NAPPIES DO I NEED
This depends. Full time use we recommend 24-30. The more you have the more you can relax with washing and drying times as well as spreading the wear over more nappies.
Some parents want to use cloth only part time and may buy 6-12 nappies just to start off.
We recommend buying enough for one day at least as your starting point and growing your collection from there.
