Can I start using cloth nappies from birth?

Of course, you sure can! The earlier you start using cloth nappies the easier it is to build a great routine that works for you and your baby. Keep in mind that on average a newborn uses about 600 nappies in their first six weeks of life; using cloth nappies from the start means you will be able to benefit from the beginning, even if you are only using them part-time.

We recommend to our customers to start off with 12 – 15 nappies and go from here. This allows you to see what nappies you like, how often you wish to wash and if you want to do this part time or full time.

Buying nappies which are suited to a newborn means you can start right away! Newborn nappies need to be small, easily adjustable and quick drying. Some customers team newborn nappies with larger one-size-fits-most nappies as this gives them a flexible collection of nappies. Having this team of nappies means that these customers don’t have to run the risk of having to wait (weeks or months) before their nappies fit their baby.

You can always start off using cloth nappies part-time and supplement with disposables until you know the nappy which works best with your little baby and your lift style.

Of course, there is no reason for you not to use cloth nappies from the start and we are here to help you find the most workable and economical way for you and your family.
