Why Cloth?

Easy on your wallet

Sjoe, babies don’t come cheap, that’s for sure! Parents can expect to spend over R13,000 on disposable nappies for each child – quite literally, throwing their money away! We estimate you can save up to R11,000 compared to the cost of using throwaway nappies - what an incentive to use cloth!

Easy on you

Nifty fastenings that go on exactly like a disposable, a soft, snug fit and super absorbent cores mean modern cloth nappies are unrecognisable compared to the towelling squares previous generations remember. The clever size-adjustable design of many cloth nappies means you can use the same nappies right through from birth to potty. They're a doddle to wash too. After storing your used nappies inside a smell-proof bucket lined with a laundry bag, simply remove the bag and chuck it into your machine, nappies and all. Wash with powder detergent at 60 degrees or less. Just remember, no softener. It’s as easy as that!

Easy on baby

High performing and super absorbent nappies with a breathable waterproof cover mean natural fabrics next to your baby's bottom. Using cloth can help reduce nappy rash, eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions and can in many cases encourage early potty training.

Easy on the planet

Did you know by using cloth nappies on your baby you will divert in the region of 4,000 disposable nappies from landfill?! Nappies that will still be around 500 years from now, we should add. Yes, that’s right, it is estimated to take around 500 years for one disposable nappy to decompose. Now that stinks. We should also mention that by giving cloth a go you can halve your weekly rubbish and your carbon footprint could be up to 40% smaller. Certainly beats a last minute dash to the shops for nappies!
