As an experienced cloth nappy user, we were super impressed with this nappy! We loved the microfleece layer on the inserts as it kept bub dry. The cute print, well that's just a bonus!

The evolution of cloth nappies - from terry towelling to the modern nappies we know and love today

The Evolution of Washable Cloth Nappies

Washable nappies have been around for centuries.

Many of us would have worn terry-towelling nappies as babies, before disposables became the norm in the mid 1900's.

Reusable cloth nappies have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity recently as they have evolved and become easier to prepare, use and wash.

NappyLuxe cloth nappies are an old classic modernised for today's busy parents. You'll love'em!

Frequently Asked Cloth Nappy Questions

How do cloth nappies work?

Similarly to disposable nappies, cloth nappies absorb your baby's waste and have an outer water-resistant layer that prevents the waste from leaking onto your baby's clothes.

Cloth nappies are washed in the washing machine and reused whereas disposable nappies are single use and take up to 500 years to decompose in landfill.

What are cloth nappies made from?

Whilst there are a few types and styles, the 3 elements that most modern cloth nappies have in common are:

1. A water-resistant outer layer
2. Absorbent inserts
3. Snaps to fit the nappy to your baby

How do I use cloth nappies?

Assembly is easy, the absorbent inserts snap into place on the inside of the nappy, then snap out again for easy washing.

View our fit guide to see how to correctly put the nappy on a baby.

How do I adjust the nappy as my baby grows?

There are a set of "rise snaps" on the front of each nappy cover which allow you to easily adjust the sizing to suit your baby.

This enables your nappy to grow with your baby until toilet trained.

How do I wash cloth nappies?

All nappies should be stored in an airy, open basket before going through a 2-step wash.

First, a pre-wash is performed to remove soiling, followed by a main wash within 3 days to thoroughly clean the nappies ready for next use.

Our nappy washing guide provides comprehensive advice on how to wash and keep nappies clean.

Can I use the nappy at night on my baby?

Each nappy comes with 2 inserts, totalling 12 layers of absorbency.

This is ample absorbency for daytime use. The nappy is designed to easily accommodate additional absorbency for night time too.

Additional cloth insert packs can be purchased to boost the nappy for night-times.

Do cloth nappies restrict movement?

There are no indications that cloth nappies restrict movement or delay babies from reaching crawling or walking milestones.

Today's modern cloth nappies, made with premium materials, are trim fitting and don't differ much in size compared to disposable nappies.

That said, it's always a good idea to give your baby some nappy free time to experiment with moving their body without any clothing or nappies.

How do I dry pail cloth nappies?

A dry pail is an open, airy basket to place dirty nappies into before washing.

Start by finding a suitable place for your dry pail baskets, such as next to the change table or in your laundry area.

Place dirty nappies open into the basket, first remove solids by dropping into the toilet and rinsing in the sink.

The dry pail basket is then emptied into the washing machine every day or 2nd day.

Follow our comprehensive nappy washing guide for full instructions to complete the 2 step washing process for nappies.

Are cloth nappies better for baby?

Cloth nappies do not contain the chemicals that disposable nappies contain, and are therefore seen as a more natural and breathable alternative to sit against baby's skin.

By choosing a cloth nappy brand that has a stay-dry layer against your baby's skin, your baby is kept dry and comfortable.

Cloth nappies are also more environmentally sustainable than disposable nappies, which take up to 500 years to decompose in landfill.

Can I use a reusable nappy for swimming?

No, you will need a separate swim nappy. Whilst the nappy cover on its own, with the inserts removed, can be used as a make-shift swim nappy if you've forgotten one, we do not recommend this as a long term solution. The reason we say this is only a back-up is because chlorine and salt water can damage the water-resistant layers. If you do use it as a swim nappy, you'll need to rinse it in fresh water as soon as you can, dry pail, and wash soon after.

We intend to add swim nappies to our range in the future.

How often should I change a reusable nappy?

Newborn babies should have their nappy changed every 2 hours. Older babies should have their nappy changed every 2 to 3 hours, but they can wear a night nappy overnight for 12 hours.

How can I stop cloth nappies leaking?

There could be a number of reasons for why your nappy is leaking. We run through the main causes and how to easily fix leaks within our ultimate guide to cloth nappies.
