What kind of nappy pail do you recommend to keep dirty cloth nappies?
We recommend using a nappy pail or basket that contains holes for air flow. It is important to allow your dirty nappies to breath while waiting for a wash to prevent any odours or mould forming.
We prefer to chose a metal pail or basket over plastic, as this will also last longer, and is able to be recycled at the end of its life.
Can I use EcoNaps modern cloth nappies at night?
You sure can! Because every baby is different (some sleep for longer, some wee’s more than others) the amount of absorption required will vary from baby to baby. Our EcoNaps cloth nappies include Includes 1x modern cloth nappy cover and 1x bamboo cloth insert set (each cloth insert set contains 1x longer foldable insert and 1x smaller snap-in insert). This offers five nappy absorption settings, however if you do find you need a little extra support to get you through the night, pick up a set of our Bamboo Boosters, or try out Tri-Fold Bamboo Night boosters .
Can I use cloth nappies at daycare?
Absolutely. Daycares are more than happy to use the nappy of your choice, and the EcoNaps modern cloth nappy is especially daycare friendly! Simply have your nappies folded and ready to go complete with mess-free bamboo liner in each. Pack them in a wet bag and away you go. They simply remove the liner and dispose of it, place the used cloth nappy in your wet bag, and you take it home at the end of the day. It’s really no different for the daycare staff to using disposables.
How do I use modern cloth nappies when out and about?
So many cloth nappy newbies are unsure how to use them when out and about. But honestly parents, its really, really easy. The secret? A wet bag!
Here’s how it’s done:
Change bub as you normally would. If you happen to be near a toilet, tip any solids in (if not, no biggie, just skip this part), roll up your cloth nappy and fasten with a snap. Store any dirty nappies in your leak proof and odour proof wet bag until you get home then wash as normal.
Do I need to change my baby more frequently with cloth nappies?
The EcoNaps modern cloth nappy is designed to be worn for the same length of time as a disposable nappy during the day. At nights, depending on your bub you may require a little extra absorption to get you through. Choose from our bamboo boosters, or our tri-fold bamboo night boosters to give your babies cloth nappy some extra absorption overnight.
Do I need to change the nappy covers each time I change baby?
No. This comes down to personal preference and what works best for your baby, as some bubs have more sensitive skin than others. If you wish to re-use covers without washing in between, we recommend doing so only with nappy covers from changes with wee, and airing for at least 2-3 hours between changes. If any form or irritation or rash does occur by doing this, we recommend to return to changing the nappy cover each time you change baby.
