More and more parents are choosing to use cloth nappies for their baby. Cloth nappies have many benefits…
BETTER FOR OUR BABIES
BETTER FOR US
BETTER FOR OUR PLANET
FREE FROM NASTIES
Cloth nappies are better for bums. They are made from super absorbent fabric rather than chemical gels which can be found in other nappies. This may irritate your baby's skin less and can reduce nappy rash.* It's also been known that when ready, your toddler could be toilet training up to 6 months earlier than their single-use wearing friends, which can aid their development and independence.**
Cloth nappies are better for your pocket. You can save up to $2000 when choosing cloth nappies and even more if you use your nappies with a second child. The bottom line is, even by switching to one cloth nappy a day in place of a single-use nappy, you can make significant financial savings.
Cloth nappies are better for our planet. 250 million single-use nappies are thrown away across the world every day (that's 90 billion a year!)† Every nappy can take up to 500 years to decompose in landfill.‡ So using cloth nappies can reduce your household plastic waste and your carbon footprint by 40%.§
& SUPER STYLISH
And they look super cute too. Not much is better than a beautifully designed nappy for the most stylish (and eco-chic) little bottom.
*Studies have shown that your child is five times more likely to suffer from nappy rash if you use disposable nappies rather than cloth nappies. This is due to the chemicals in disposable nappies evoking the feeling of dryness when in fact your child is wet; meaning you may leave your nappy on longer between changes. Nappy rash can be caused by a number of things such as sickness and diarrhoea, teething, food allergies, reaction to baby products such as wipes and creams, and much more.
**Studies have shown toddlers who wear cloth nappies are likely to toilet train up to 6 months earlier than their disposable wearing friends, which can aid their development and independence.
