    • How Do Reusable Nappies Work? – Complete Beginners Guide

      As a parent of a newborn, you want the best for your baby. One of the first things you need for your baby is nappies. When looking for nappies, we recommend you go for reusable cloth nappies. Although disposable nappies may appear to be an easier option, there are other things to consider for the comfort of your baby. Reusable provide a softer start with natural fibres rather than chemicals and plastic and paper materials. And though there is a washing and drying aspect to cloth nappies, there are a multitude of benefits. Why Use Reusable Nappies? One of the biggest benefits of using reusable nappies is the amount of money that you save with them. With cloth nappies, you don’t need to buy a many. For example, about 25 to 30 cloth nappies would last from birth to potty training versus the 5000 nappies on average you use with disposables. Cloth nappies can also be used for a second child or sold on as second hand. If you compare the cost of around 25 cloth nappies to 5000 disposables you will quickly see the difference add up! Even if you add the costs for washing the nappies, reusable nappies would still be considerably less expensive than the disposable nappies brands. Don’t forget with cloth nappies you won’t need nappy bags and are less likely to need nappy creams very often Cloth Nappy vs Disposable Nappy: Which is Better? All in all, reusable nappies offer a better range of benefits than disposable nappies. Reusable cloth nappies are much more cost-effective than disposable nappies. And not just economical, reusable nappies are also safe for the environment. There is a misconception that disposable nappies are easier to use which is no longer true with Modern Cloth Nappies. Many cloth nappies brands have made it extremely easy to use Nappies and similar to disposable in the way you put them on. Reusable Nappies come in stylish designs. You can find custom designs for nappies with fun patterns and amazing colours. This gives you a wider range in terms of designs that you can explore. If you are worried about rashes and skin redness, the risks are greatly reduced with cloth nappies. Stop believing the myths that cloth nappies cause rashes. Try using cloth nappies for your newborn and see for yourself. The natural fibres of cloth nappies and stay dry layers mean that the moisture is drawn away and only soft materials are against your babies delicate skin. Disposable nappies, on the other hand, are made with chemicals like Sodium Polyacrylate, chlorine, synthetic perfumes, and stuff like that. All these chemical can be harmful to even the skins of adults. Babies have more highly sensitive skin, you never know the kind of effect these nappies would have on the skin of your baby. What are the Best Reusable Nappies Brands? This can vary from baby to baby. The size and shape of your little one can determine which nappy works best for you. There are however some nappies that seem to work for the majority of babies. What you need is, a truly tried and tested nappy that has proven itself repeatedly. There are many companies with reviews of different brands, Facebook groups and parent awards for different brands. At The Norfolk Nappy Company we only stock nappies we know and trust so we are confident any of our brands would work for most babies. If you need help or advice on which nappies might work best for your lifestyle and your baby we offer lots of ways you can get a recommendation. From online consultations to advice questionnaires we are happy to help. How to Store Dirty Nappies? You need to set up separate storage space for keeping the dirty nappies. Store nappies either in a large wet bag or a bucket with a lid. Keep piling them up and clean them all at once. Nappies do not need to be pre-soaked. Store all dirty nappies together until you are ready to wash. Leaving nappies for more than 2 days can cause ammonia damage so you should plan to wash them at least every 2nd day. How Do Reusable Nappies Work? How to Wash and Dry Reusable Nappies? Washing Nappies: For washing the nappies, first, you need to pass them through a cold rinse cycle. Use plain water in the washing machine and set it to about half an hour. In the next cycle, you are going to need to use the detergent. Always make sure to use a non-bio powder detergent and don’t use detergents that come with added whiteners. Drying Nappies: Different cloth nappies brands have different guidelines for drying the nappies. Still, there are some common points that work for all nappies. Direct high temperatures should always be avoided. The best way to dry a reusable nappy is by drying it on the washing line. You can also tumble dry if you want to but keep the setting too low and don’t tumble dry the outer layers if possible. You can also use an airing cupboard for drying purposes. Placing the nappies near a radiator also works just fine (but not on the radiator). Both nappies and inserts can be dried in this way. Once the nappies are dry, you will be able to use them for your baby. How Often Should You Change Reusable Nappies? You need at least 20 to 30 reusable nappies if you have decided to go with this option for your baby. Since you are going to be changing the nappy every 2 to 3 hours especially in the early days, you need to have this many at your disposal so that you can easily rotate them for use. Wrapping Up: This is all there is to it. Again, using reusable nappies may come off as a bit of a hassle, but is by far the best option that you have for your little one. Instead of going for disposable nappies which are way more expensive and bad for the environment, choose the reusable ones that last for a long time and are great for the health of your baby. It's all about How Do Reusable Nappies Work? If you have any questions. Please comment down and we'll try our best to answer them for you.

    • Which are the best Cloth Nappies UK 2021?

      Looking for the Best Cloth Nappies UK 2021 to use can be really confusing; there are so many different brands to choose from! Then there is the terminology – it’s almost like you need to learn a new language. Do you know your all in two from your popper and pocket? Your booster from your insert or liner? Really all you want to know is which nappy is best? The answer to the best cloth Nappies UK unfortunately, depends on a few different points. There are probably a whole host of nappies that will fit your baby just fine and do the job you want – it's working out which ones they are that can be the problem. Best Cloth Nappies UK 2021 : There are a few things you can look for when choosing Best Cloth Nappies UK 2021 depending on the features you want; Cloth Nappies Material: Cheaper cloth nappies that are likely to need lots of extra inserts later are typically made with only or mainly microfibre inserts. The more absorbent materials are cotton, bamboo, and hemp (in order with hemp being most absorbent). A nappy packed full of hemp you might think is great however it will be slow to dry and is the most expensive material so you may pay a premium too. Mid-range reusable nappies tend to have a higher amount of cotton and bamboo which dry quicker and have a mid-range price. 2. Second Gussets: Whether internal or external a second gusset can make a world of difference in preventing leaks around the leg. Most mid-range and premium nappies will have this feature. 3. Poppers or Velcro fastening Of Cloth Nappies: If grandparents are looking after your little one regularly and will be using the cloth nappies you may need to consider what they will find easiest to do up and undo. Velcro is definitely simpler however it can need a little TLC every now and then and can be undone by a toddler. Poppers on the other hand can be very difficult to fasten and seem more confusing as there are often lots of options for where to do them up. 4. Drying time Of Cloth Nappies Uk: If you don’t want to buy loads of cloth nappies you need to consider how long they take to dry. Do the inserts come apart or unfold? If it’s an all in one can you turn it inside out somehow? 5. Size Of the Best Cloth Nappies UK 2021: If you and your partner are tall there is a good chance your little one will be too. OF course, it’s not a hard and fast rule. If you think your little one is going to be tall or they are born on one of the upper percentiles you want to consider the top end weight range of the nappy. There is a big difference in the weight nappies go up to in the birth to potty size so it is definitely something to consider. Another thing to look out for is how many rise positions the nappy has. The rise is how you fasten the nappy to change its size and is usually changed by poppers up and down the front of the cloth nappy. Some have as few as two positions and some have four or five. More rise position will allow you to fit the nappy better as your little one grows. 6. Guarantee: Does the nappy come with any guarantees either from the retailer or the manufacturer? This will ensure in the event there are any faults you will be covered. 7. The type of nappy: You are most comfortable with – Whether it’s an all in one, all in two, pocket, fitted, or a hybrid narrowing your search by type first is a great way to start. At The Norfolk Nappy Company we only stock nappies we trust and have fully tested. If you need help choosing which is the Best Cloth Nappies UK 2021 and what would work for you we can help. We take lots of details from you to help you narrow the choices down to two or three nappies then you can decide based on your budget or the prints.

    • How to Wash Cloth Nappies – Step by Step Guide

      Washing cloth nappies are a lot different than the way you wash your standard clothes. It is not necessarily complicated but different in the sense that there is a specific routine that you have to go through to do it effectively. Don’t worry if you find it a bit difficult. Once you get the hang of it, it will be much easier. In this article, we are going to give you a complete guide for washing cloth nappies. We’ll tell you all you need to do, to wash the cloth nappies for your baby, in the most effective way. So, let’s get straight to it; Step 1: Tip the Solid Contents of Nappy in the Toilet This is straightforward. If the poo is solid, tip it into the toilet. And if it is not flushable, then you may need to rinse it with water. There are some nappy sprayers also available that you can use for rinsing or holding it under the water stream as you flush the toilet can also work. Step 2: Keep Storing the Nappies in a Bucket Take a separate dry pail which is a bucket with a lid and keep storing the nappies in it. You can’t wash each one as they get dirty as there would be a million of them (or so it would seem). So, keep storing them in a bucket with a lid or large wet bag and wash them all together. Step 3: Soaking is Not Necessary Although most modern cloth nappies are made to be washed easily they do not like to be soaked before washing as it can break down the natural fibers of the material. But make sure to read the washing instructions we provide you for the brand. Bleach and added laundry whiteners can invalidate your warranties and also damage the natural fibers of your nappies. Step 4: Wash the Nappies with Detergent You should use fragrance-free and powdered detergent for washing the nappies. Don’t use fabric softeners as they reduce the absorption capabilities of cloth nappies. Similarly, it is important to ensure all the detergent has been removed from the nappies. While you will use a full dose of Detergent (use the heavily soiled amount) if your nappies still smell of washing powder you may need to do any extra rinse. Step 5: Fill the Machine Even though you may have a day or two worth of nappies to wash this is likely to only fill around a quarter to half of your washing machine. It is important there is enough in the machine to cause friction between the materials as they wash and get them clean. Overfull will mean your nappies don’t have enough space to move and the water won’t reach them well. We recommend filling your machine about three-quarters full by adding in baby clothes, muslins, and hand towels. Step 6: Dry the Nappies You can line dry or low tumble dry most nappies but avoid tumble drying waterproof wraps where they can be separated. Check the manufacturer's guidelines before tumble drying. Stains can be removed by drying your nappies on the line outside in the sunshine. Be aware not to leave them in the sun on extremely hot days for too long. Wrapping Up There you go! This is the most standard routine you need to get used to when washing cloth nappies. Sounds simple enough, right? And it really is. No matter how daunting it seems at first. You will get used to it so, don’t worry about it, especially if you are a new parent. And if you have any more questions about How to Wash Cloth Nappies, let us know in the comments. We’d be happy to help you out.
