Washable Nappies have evolved!
Modern cloth nappies are now easy to use and just as easy to clean. Gone are the pins and origami. Cloth nappies are made up of three layers: a waterproof shell, an absorbent core, and a fabric next to the skin that allows moisture to pass through, keeping your baby’s skin dry.

Reasons to choose cloth nappies:
  • Cost savings - save between $500 - $1000
  • Environmentally friendly – disposables are an incredible waste and take years to decompose
  • Gentler on babies skin – cloth are chemical free and more comfortable.
  • Improved child health – some studies link disposables with childhood asthma and infertility in boys.
  • Quicker potty learning – children are more aware of the sensation of urinating in a cloth diaper.
  • Colour and style alternatives – babies look super trendy in cloth.


Events promoting and informing about cloth nappies will be held all around the country.
Check out what will be happening in your area.
