With some 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.

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.

1. Visit a Retailer

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.

 

2. Invest in a Trial Pack

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:

Green Lily - Newborn Packs and OSFM Packs

Cloth and Carry

Baby Blossom

Darlings Downunder - Newborn Pack, OSFM Pack, Build Your Own Pack

Baby Mumma

Mumma Loves Bubba - Newborn Packs and OSFM Packs

Bootycrawl

Earth Babes

 

3. Use a Library/Hire Service

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.

Here are our retailers who offer nappy hire services that include our nappies:

The Nappy Guru

Cloth Tots - use code Welcome5 for a discount

The Cloth Stash

Green Lily

Cloth and Carry

Nappy Mojo (New Zealand)

 

4. Borrow from a Friend

If you have a friend who has a nappy brand that you're looking to try, you could perhaps borrow one for a couple of days or have a play around with their stash and ask for their feedback.
