I can't tell you how many people have told me they love seeing a line of white terry flats hanging on the line. But what happens if you like a little colour in your life? Nappy covers are the obvious sol... READ MORE


The truth about flats and prefolds - traditional cloth nappies

Added on 20 May 2016 in General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

Did you wear cotton terry square nappies as a baby? We both did :) And we both used terry flats for our eldest children over 10 years ago. Since then, the humble cloth nappy has evolved into the myriad cleverly designed modern cloth nappies that are available nowadays - with unlimited options, high tech fabrics, and so many factors to take into consideration! Is in any wonder that a significant number of parents are choosing to go ‘old-school’ and revert to the simplicity and versatility of ... READ MORE

Are Modern Cloth Nappies & Nappy Covers REALLY Breathable?

Added on 11 May 2016 in Darlings Downunder, General Info & Advice, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

Many people seeing modern cloth nappies for the first time and hearing about the waterproofing used in most of them - PUL or TPU - are sceptical that a fabric can be both waterproof and breathable at the same time. While there are options offering much more breathability (like wool covers or a fitted nappy with no cover), there is no doubt that PUL has revolutionised the cloth nappy industry. But is it really all that much better than the old plastic & PVC covers?   We’ve got to clari... READ MORE
