Cloth Nappy Guide

Join the cloth nappy movement

1. We're not just about selling cloth nappies, we are a movement

Welcome to the revolution, where putting your child in cloth nappies at home is the norm. We are about putting more money back into your pocket.

Every little decision we as parents make each day can help reduce the 1 million disposable nappies that are dumped into the NZ land fill EVERY DAY (taking 300-500 years to break down).

We want to challenge our throw away culture and show you that you can truly make a difference. By choosing 1 nappy change to put your baby in a cloth nappy - you are making a difference. When your friends do too and their friends, we start a revolution. Join our group

2. Here's what you need to get started with cloth nappies

Nappy with booster pads

Most people like the 1x micro fibre + 1x bamboo insert to start with.

But if you want 2x bamboo that's another option

Wet bag if you're going out

One pocket for dry nappies. One pocket for wet ones.


Use disposable liners if you are worried about poo getting stuck to the nappy 

3. Get the perfect fit for your baby


Place the microfibre pad above the bamboo one and slide them into the pocket.

Booster pads

Adjust the snaps and push the spare fabric upwards towards the tummy. Get the right size to make sure there are no leg gaps.

Adjust the snaps

Put the nappy on your baby and put the velcro on the waistband. You should be able to fit two fingers downwards from the tummy button into the waistband so it's not too tight.

Nappy change

 Make the elastic go in the creases where undies would normally sit.

4. Washing them is not as hard as you imagine

1. Tuck and flush - Tuck the velcro tab inside the nappy. Flush the poo down the loo and rinse off the nappy.

2. Basket - Put the pads and nappy into a laundry basket with lots of holes or washing machine with the lid open. No need to soak.

3. Prewash - When you are ready wash at 40 degrees use Persil. No fabric softener or bleach.

4. Main Wash - Within 2 days, top the machine that has the nappies in the bottom, with other small laundry items and put through a full wash.

5. Line dry - but avoid prolonged sun exposure of the nappy outer shells. Booster pads can be tumble dried if needed.

6. Stuff - Put the pad(s) into the nappy pocket ahead of time. Avoid scratching the waterproof layer with rings or finger nails.
