There are a few factors that will alter this which I will go into in this post but a quick answer (because you are a busy parent googling for info) is around 20-25 if you are planning on using cloth nappies full time.

How Cloth Nappies Are More Convenient And Beneficial For Both You And Baby

When cloth nappies are talked or written about, the most common viewpoint for using them is an environmental one. Yes, this is a huge plus point for using cloth over disposable but I have started to worry that by focussing a lot of energy on this side that we are inadvertently missing a new consumer. You see, not everybody is as passionate about the environment and no matter how much you and I bang on about 500 years, plastic waste, crude oil and water use, it may actually turn some people off. We all have different lives, we all have different routines, children and opinions and so, I wanted to take a different stance on the benefits of cloth nappies… One that does not mention the environment or saving the planet. This is about how cloth nappies are more convenient and beneficial for both you and baby. How cloth can actually make life easier, healthier, simpler. Yes, I believe all of those things to be true, as did my lovely cloth bum mama’s over on Instagram who helped to give many ideas for this blog. So, let’s take a look at the most popular reasons why cloth is convenient and beneficial…

Why We Won’t Be Potty ‘Training’

When I was a first time Mum, I went along to quite a few baby groups, I listened to other parents advice, I watched how they did things and I mostly followed suit. So, when I saw them insisting that at the age of 2 we should be potty training, I just copied. I thought this was the way it was done. I very, very quickly realised that this was wrong. Jake wasn’t ready and after several attempts and lots of wet clothing later, I stopped pushing this challenge on him and left him to enjoy being a toddler.

How To Get A Reluctant Dad On Board With Cloth Nappies

When it comes to making that leap from disposable nappies to cloth nappies, you won’t be surprised to hear that the ones who usually instigate this change are the Mums. You also won’t be surprised to hear that getting Dad on board with cloth nappies can be quite tricky. And this isn’t because men don’t care as much about the environment or about not having chemicals next to their baby’s skin, it is usually just simply because they tend to tackle things in a slightly different way. Men like facts and figures, they like to see the costs, they want to know that the change is going to benefit them and be worthwhile in the long term.

Why You Should Consider Using Reusable Swim Nappies

Swim nappies are probably the most important part of taking your baby swimming. As a parent, it is your responsibility to ensure that your baby/child keeps any little faecal accidents contained so not to contaminate the pool. Any leaks will lead to the closure of the public pool and will result in hours of cleaning… You definitely do not want to be THAT parent! I am sure that everybody reading this is very familiar with the disposable swim nappies that are readily available in supermarkets (Huggies being the most prominent brand) but have you heard of or considered using reusable swim nappies? Let’s take a look at what they are and why I think they are the best option out there… Continue reading “Why You Should Consider Using Reusable Swim Nappies”

Coping With Reusable Nappy Leaks

Reusable nappy leaks⁣? Ok, so they DO happen. Yes, cloth is better than disposables for this and yep you won’t experience a poonami with them BUT they are not magic and I really do believe that some people think that they shouldn’t ever get a leak from reusables and once they do, it gets blown out of proportion. My first child wore disposables and if I spent all my time posting into groups every time he had a nappy leak, that would be all I’d spend my time doing! Honestly, we had nighttime leaks, we had day out leaks, we had pressure leaks and we had far too many poo explosions for my liking.⁣ ⁣

I started to cloth bum my second child and in comparison to disposables Continue reading “Coping With Reusable Nappy Leaks”
