  • I've been using cloth nappies for some years. If your baby has legs that aren't super chubby, I would strongly recommend using only covers that have double gussets - to stop poo leaks. I would also recommend (sorry OP) not using microfibre or any synthetic inserts. Microfibre can irritate baby's skin. Bamboo and Hemp are extremely absorbent and are good choices, but they cost a little more. Still much cheaper long term than disposable nappies. My bamboo prefolds have been in use for almost 3 years so far with 2 babies.

    At this price though, you can buy multiple covers and not use the inserts (or only use them for extra absorbency, not directly on baby's skin). Buy better quality inserts from somewhere else.

    • I'd say a lot of mothers would "pooh pooh" this nonsense (so to speak).

      With paper diapers being $10-$15 for a pack of 40 or whatever why would you bother wasting electricity and your labour on MORE washing.

      There's enough washing machine action with a kid without adding to it unnecessarily but I suppose it depends how much of a true beleiver you really are.

      • Because you don't want them sitting in landfill for 1000 years?

      • Nonsense?

        Once you get into a good wash routine it's not too bad. I just couldn't deal with the dozens of nappies going in the rubbish every week only to sit in landfill for hundreds of years.

        It's worth noting that it takes less water to wash a nappy than to manufacture a disposable nappy. If you have a modern front-loader it's even more efficient. I line dry nappies in the sun or stick them in front of a fan on wet days so we aren't using the dryer.

        Our local council now gives rebates for residents using cloth nappies because disposable nappies are becoming such a large component of total municipal waste.

        I got information on a good wash routine from clean cloth nappies down under but there are lots of other good resources out there too.

  • How do these compare with the aldi ones?

  • What a great alternative to disposable nappies.
    I've read that 2 billion disposable nappies go into landfill in Australia every year, 4% of our landfill is comprised of disposable nappies and they can take up to 500 years to decompose (plastic components). What an environmental disaster that is.
    The website babybehinds.com.au estimates that disposable nappies will cost $3,250 per child, so choosing reusable nappies is one of the great Ozbargain choices you can make.
    All our 4 kids were in cloth nappies. We even used them when bush camping around Oz with our first two.
    Years ago 100% of families used cloth nappies. Now only 5% do.
    Reusable nappies are a big financial win for families and a big win for the environment.
    When my kids have children, I'm buying them a pack of reusable nappies like these.

      I'm a big advocate for cloth nappies. A lot of people don't realise that modern cloth nappies are very sophisticated and convenient now and don't require soaking in the wet, stinky buckets of a generation ago.

      We need more incentives from governments to reduce the amount of disposable nappies used, or maybe we need to require that disposable nappies are biodegradable. Part of the problem is (imo) that nappies are too cheap and don't reflect the cost incurred in terms of damage to our environment (of course, there are people who have genuine hardship and they need equal access to baby items). Anyone with a washing machine and a clothesline (even a collapsible one) can do cloth.

      I think the council rebates are a step in the right direction.

      • Hi Zenyatta,
        Thanks for the correction to the website I referred to. I tried to edit my post but I couldn't find a way.
        I share your concerns about the amount of waste resulting from millions of disposable nappies being thrown away each day.
        Yes, disposable nappies are too cheap. Sadly we live in a throw-a-way society, partly because things are too dear to get someone to repair them and partly because we've lost the skills of repairing things ourselves. In many ways we were much greener years ago when people repaired things, rather than throw it away.
        Recently one of my daughters was going to throw away a good down jacket because it had a small rip in it and the feathers were coming out. My wife did a simple repair and now it's as good as gold. She now wears it and loves it.
        As you say, it's not that hard to put nappies in a washing machine and then hang them on the line, but for some, that's too much hard work. LOL
        Council rebates are a good idea. I have heard of some councils giving parents a pack of cloth nappies for their newborn.
        Kind regards, David
