Added on 17 July 2014 in General Info & Advice, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

When thinking about choosing cloth nappies, a big consideration is how much extra time and effort they will take than disposables. You can come across a lot of negative comments (usually from people who don't use cloth) that give the impression that using reusable nappies involves being chained to your washing machine, spending hours up to your elbows in poo, drowning in a never ending cycle of wet nappies.   We asked some ordinary, busy mums - who actually use cloth nappies every day - how...

All about Delamination

Added on 14 July 2014 in General Info & Advice, Washing & care of cloth nappies   |   0 comments

  Most modern cloth nappies and covers use a special fabric to make them waterproof. The fabric is called PUL (Polyurethane Laminate) or TPU (Thermoplastic Polyurethane) and basically refers to a fabric (either polyester or cotton) with a thin polyurethane layer bonded to it in a high heat or chemical process. The waterproof film is usually adhered to the fabric in a small dot pattern, and the bonded fabric should look and respond as a single layer of fabric. When these two layers co... READ MORE

Ethical manufacture is incredibly important at Close. The nappies are made in a factory in China which is co... READ MORE

Flat Nappy Folds: Kite Fold

Added on 04 July 2014 in Bumboo, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

This is the last in our little series looking at some great ways to fold a traditional square flat nappy. And this is the first nappy fold that both Catherine and I learned EVER - a very long time ago. You see, this popular nappy fold - the 'Kite Fold' - was our mum's favourite fold, and I remember her showing me how to fold it and put it on our youngest brother about 25 years ago. This is him helping us out at an Expo - which he'll never do again now that we've mentioned changing his nappy! &n... READ MORE

Flat Nappy Folds: Bat Wing or Origami Fold

Added on 23 June 2014 in Bumboo, General Info & Advice, Traditional Flat & Prefold Cloth Nappies   |   0 comments

The Bat Wing Fold (aka Butterfly, Chinese or Origami Fold) is one of the very first flat nappy folds I learned and it's still one of my favourites. A midwife taught me in hospital - this was almost 13 years ago, and the hospital used cloth nappies then. I used it all the time - especially in the early months - with my babies. This nappy fold puts lots of absorbency in the centre where it's needed without too much bulk around the sides. It creates a nappy with a shorter rise than some others... READ MORE
