With so many nappy brands on the market, it can feel a bit overwhelming to try and choose the right one for your family. Here are 4 ways to help make that process a little easier.
As the name suggests, multi-brand retailers carry many different varieties of cloth nappies and are able to help you look through the various types to choose a nappy that best suits your family's budget and lifestyle. If your local cloth nappy stockist doesn't have a shop front, they will often hold nappy workshops, frequent local markets or offer one-on-one demonstrations, so be sure to reach out and make a time to go through various brands of nappies in real life.
The added bonus of purchasing through your local stockist is that your hard-earned money stays in the community and you're are able to head back to them for after-sales customers support and troubleshooting. You can find a full list of our stockists HERE.
In the absence of a local stockist, most retailers offer mixed-brand trial packs so you can purchase one of these and try out a few different styles before you make a commitment to one (or more) brands.
Here are our retailers who offer trial packs that include our nappies:
There are a number of excellent nappy library service providers around Australia and it can be worthwhile to hire nappies before you purchase a full stash. This will help you get a good feel for the different varieties before you commit.
