Peg your nappies AGAINST the rack or line, not over it. Pegging over the line effectively doubles the fabric against itself, taking it longer to dry.

Modern cloth nappies are easy to use, eco-friendly and economical. However, come winter or just a heck of a lot of wet weather, the cold and rain can put a dampener on our cloth nappying enthusiasm.

Busy parents can feel overwhelmed with nappies that don’t dry and the alarming rate at which our nappy stash dwindles when we can’t rotate them quickly enough.

4 out of my 6 babies were born in winter and so I know that it can be hard to maintain cloth at this time of year, but the great news is that with a simple routine and enough nappies in rotation, it’s definitely possible. 

Here are some tips for cloth nappying when it’s dismal outside.

1. Invest in more flats and prefolds. Flats and prefold cloth nappies are great for the cold season since they dry easily and quickly, compared to all-in-ones or thick boosters. 

2. Get an indoor clothes rack or airer and move it close to the heating vent or a window where you get some amount of sunshine.

3. Pay attention to the weather report. No kidding! This is one tip that really helped us and still helps us dry clothes in winter. If you know when it’ll be raining or snowing, you can plan laundry days accordingly.

4.  Increase your stash of cloth nappies. Honestly, sometimes you just don’t get a day of sunshine and you’re out of nappies. Having a secret stash of emergency cloth nappies really saw us through some sticky situations when our kids were little. New nappies not in the budget? ANYTHING can be a booster! Check out our blog post about emergency boosting options.

5. Peg your nappies AGAINST the rack or line (see picture above), not over it. Pegging over the line effectively doubles the fabric against itself, taking it longer to dry.
