Cloth nappy tips for beginners

Here are our top tips for beginners with cloth. It's easier than you think.

One a day can make a difference:

You don't have to start big - we really believe that one a day can make a difference. It does not have to be all or nothing. Start by introducing one cloth nappy a day and increase when YOU feel ready. It really isn't a competition to see who is saving the environment that much more. It is about doing what you can, one bit at a time.

Take your time:

You don't have to start as soon as baby is born - in fact most mums we talk to started a few months into parenthood the first time. Get into your own pattern at home and start using cloth when you feel ready to. More often than not 6 months seems to be the most popular time to start as baby and you will have settled into a routine.

Getting out and about:

Going out in cloth is really not a challenge -  If you have the right supplies then you will be fine. I would suggest taking a short trip out first to boost your confidence. You will need the usual change mat and wipes but also a travel wet bag.

Different types of nappies:

Not every nappy will suit your baby - you have to find the find one for you. There is nothing wrong with have a few different types in your stash. Read reviews, join in the chat with our community and start with a selection of 3. Babies come in all shapes and sizes so this is why we recommend birth to potty so they can adapt with baby but that doesn't mean you will like them. You can always try our trial scheme too!
