Added on 24 June 2015 in Australian Nappy Association, General Info & Advice   |   0 comments

Is your child care centre happy to use cloth nappies on your child? Have you come up against refusals, extra rules, and concerns that cloth nappies are harder to use and create more work for the centre staff?     The Australian Nappy Association has just launched a resource for parents who want to provide up to date information and helpful advice to their carers, as well as for child care providers who want to provide continuity of care and promote best practice cloth nappy use at thei...

Grovia ONE Nappy: Customer Review

Added on 10 June 2015 in GroVia, New arrivals   |   0 comments

We were very excited when the GroVia O.N.E. Nappy arrived recently, and we asked one of our long time customers, Lori Pavic, to put it through its paces and report back on what she REALLY thought about this highly anticipated nappy! Hi I'm Lori, previously a nurse and now a stay at home mum to 3 beautiful children, the youngest of whom is 8.5 months old. I've been using cloth for over 4.5 years now, and am a huge advocate of cloth and other environmentally friendly products.   I have bee... READ MORE

Drying cloth nappies in winter

Added on 26 May 2015 in General Info & Advice, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

Ah, yes, the challenge of getting your cloth nappies dry when it's wet, cold and the sun (when it does decide to show) is a pale imitation of its summer strength! It's really frustrating when the seasons change and you discover that the reusable nappies that used to take a few hours to dry in summer, now seem to take DAYS! So what can you do to make sure you don't run out of nappies, and your house isn't overtaken by half-dry washing? More Nappies! Looking for an excuse for more nappies? This ... READ MORE

Snapping down the rise of a OSFM nappy: up or down?

Added on 20 May 2015 in General Info & Advice, GroVia   |   0 comments

You know that fold of fabric created when you snap down the front of a one size cloth nappy to adjust its size? Have you ever wondered whether there's a 'right' direction to fold it? Love this little video from GroVia  demonstrating that folding it up is generally better than down - it creates less bulk and a better fit across the thighs. And yes, this is the case for most nappies with an adjustable rise.  GroVia One Size Diapers - Rise Direction from GroVia on Vimeo.... READ MORE

Review of the Cheeky Wipes Kit

Added on 12 May 2015 in Cheeky Wipes, Cloth nappy accessories   |   0 comments

We love the Cheeky Wipes Kit here at Darlings Downunder. It's so cleverly designed (you can use it one handed!) and comes with everything you need for managing nappy changes when you're out and about as well as at home. There are imitations available, but none beat the quality and design features of the original. Here's a recent comprehensive review covering how to use it, real life cost savings and its effectiveness compared to disposable wipes. ... READ MORE

In this cloth nappy business of ours we not only get to see our own babies grow up, but our customers' babies too. Over the years the names become familiar... From the emails asking for advice, and the prefolds and newborn nappies bought when a mum was expecting... ...through to the purchase of starter and bulk packs of One Size nappies as she worked out which nappy she liked best... ...to asking questions about night options and heavy wetters... ...all the way through to reusable training p...
