There are many benefits to using cloth nappies – for baby, for the environment and for your hip pocket – and we're pretty sure all parents want what's best for our babies, our world and ourselves! But at the end of the day, we actually have to be able to DO something SUCCESSFULLY in order to make such a positive choice, right?
Well, we're here to hold your hand through the whole cloth nappy process. You CAN do it! And I reckon you and your baby will love it. Here's how.
Step 1: Get the right fit
If you're using the Tadpoles on a newborn, you're best best is to stock up on some Mini Prefolds. Then just follow the same instructions for folding down the front of the nappy as we do with our Chameleon nappy, shown in our Demo Video. We go through fitting your cushie tushie on newborns and older babies.
Step 2: Use the right detergent
Fabric like bamboo – indeed, any kind of towel, be it cotton or bamboo – needs a very basic, very plain detergent. Any of the bells and whistles, like softeners, brighteners and perfumes, will stop the fabric doing it’s job of being absorbent. All you need is a small amount of a basic, eco-friendly detergent.
Step 3: set yourself up for success!
Perhaps I should have mentioned this first, but the key to success with cloth nappies, as with learning anything new, is to approach it with confidence and preparation.
