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.

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.
When uncertain economic times hit, the family budget often needs to be rejigged and if you've got babies in the house, one thing that can help is to make the switch to reusables.
