What is a modern cloth nappy?

A modern cloth nappy is a cloth absorbent layer and a water resistant layer for covering a baby’s bottom.

They are designed to be as easy to use as disposables, but are washable meaning they can be used over and over again!

Cloth Nappies

What nappy should I get?

There is no one perfect nappy – what fits one baby well may not be as good a fit on another baby. Your own preference will also play a part in what you prioritise in a nappy; be it fast drying, inexpensive, cute, organic cotton, easy to put on etc.

The cloth nappy loan kits offer you a try before you buy service so you don’t have to invest before you know what works best for you and your baby. Borrow a Cloth Nappy loan kit to find a brand and style you love.

It is worth considering that you may want different nappies for different purposes. Some quick drying nappies for winter use, some very absorbent nappies for night-time, some cute nappies for showing off in the summer, some slim nappies for tighter clothing.
