A supply of single-use nappies that will last from birth to potty training will cost between $2500-$3000. A stash of cloth nappies that can be used for the same 2 1/2 year period can cost as little as $300. Phenomenal savings, even after you factor in an extra 2-3 loads of wash per week. Use those nappies for more than one baby and WOW! even bigger savings.
Still thinking of pins and plastic pants? Thinking that nappy laundry would be gross? Think again! Contemporary cloth nappies have snaps or Velcro-style closures, with hi-tech waterproof fabrics that keep leaks at bay. Bio-Soft Liners make nappy changes a breeze. There's no need to sacrifice convenience when you choose cloth.
Add up the single-use nappies used for ONE baby for 2.5 years and you'll get 1 to 2 TONS of rubbish. Under ideal conditions, one single-use nappy can take 500 years to biodegrade. But there are no ideal conditions in landfills – no air or light. Even “biodegradable” single-use nappies will take a long time to break down. If we want to reduce, re-use and recycle, then cloth nappies are the logical choice!
There’s nothing like the feel of soft cloth against your baby’s skin. You can tell when cloth is wet, so cloth nappies get changed more often – and that’s healthy. Babies in cloth benefit from more air circulation, less build-up of high temperatures, and are less susceptible to rashes.
Last (but not necessarily least!), take a look at our products, and you'll have to agree that cloth nappies are also pretty darned CUTE!
