- Why Should You Use Cloth Nappies?
It seems we are all a bit more environmentally conscious these days and recycling has become second nature but reducing our use of goods and becoming much less of a throw away society is the next step. When I first started with cloth nappies it was to reduce my use of plastic but there are so many more reasons to use cloth nappies and the one that does it for you might be something completely different. These are some of the main benefits; Going Green On average babies will use 5000 nappies by the time they are potty trained (that’s enough to fill 78 bin bags) a massive amount to send to landfill compared to the 25-30 cloth nappies you would need. Switching to cloth nappies is a really effective way to reduce your use of plastic and the rubbish you produce. The energy and water used to produce and transport disposable nappies to you far outweighs any amount of washing you could ever do. Being able to reuse cloth nappies on future children or sell them on when you are finished with them only adds to the environmental benefits. Gentle on tiny bottoms The natural fibers of cloth nappies and ultra soft materials make them much more gentle than the paper, plastic and chemicals of disposable nappies – I know I would prefer to wear material than paper or plastic. Cost There are so many factors to consider with this one however if you start from birth and compare like for like on the low cost or premium brands of each then cloth nappies are usually significantly lower in cost (saving over £1000 on the premium brands). Add in the ability to recap some of that cost on the second hand market assuming you have looked after your nappies or reuse them on future children and it is really attractive. Choices Cloth nappies are beautiful and come in so many prints! They can be a bit addictive (don’t tell my husband you only need 25). But they also come in lots of different types. Gone are the days of terry folding and pins – unless you prefer that – and now you have a whole world of choices and different designs to choose from. Help available If you aren't sure where to turn next or how to get started there is a whole world of help available to get you set up. At The Norfolk Nappy Company I have available; - Videos to help you understand cloth nappies and the different brands - A questionnaire for a personalised recommendation - Consultations either in a group or individual - Hire Kits so you can try before you buy There are lots of cloth nappy libraries around the country too offering support and hire kits across a wide range of brands.
- Bamboo or Hemp?
Aside from the waterproof layer the inside of cloth nappies can be made from quite a few different materials. Ranging from man-made materials like Microfibre to natural materials such as Hemp and Bamboo. You also find some nappies and inserts have a combination of materials like Bamboo Charcoal. It can be difficult to know which are best and therefore what to add to your nappy or which nappies are best for you. If you are adding an insert to boost your nappy how do you know which to go for? This is a basic guide to the materials nappies are made from to help you understand what they all do and how they are used. Pairing a Fast Absorber with a highly absorbent insert can be a great way to boost a nappy. For example if your nappy comes with a Microfibre insert adding a bamboo one can increase the absorbency. If your nappy is all bamboo but you are getting leaks due to the volume of urine your baby is producing in one go or your baby is upset by feeling wet adding a microfibre will help get the moisture away quicker so the bamboo has time to do it’s job. Why not just add lots of Cotton to get a middle ground – you can and ‘prefolds’ or ‘Terry squares’ are exactly this and while efficient it can be quite bulky. If you are opting for the others typically you want one from the top of the list with one from the bottom.
