Welcome to the home of The Cloth Nappy Doctor. I’m Tennille, a mum, a business owner, a carer, wife and the Cloth Nappy Doctor. I have created this space to provide a wealth of practical and easy-to-digest information about using and caring for cloth nappies in Australia…just for you. I live in Brisbane with James, my husband, and four gorgeous children. Abigail is the namesake of our business. She is the reason for my passion to learn about and share solutions for living a simpler and sustainable family live. I also have the privilege to work with Trudy and Sally, two mums who are regular contributors to this place of knowledge. We welcome you here, and look forward to sharing this journey with your family.

My experience with cloth nappies began over 10 years. Now I provide advice and assistance to parents for nearly four years through my business, Apikali. We have used and trialed with parents over 100 brands and styles of cloth nappies and accessories. We continue to review and compare new designs and brands to assist our community of parents. You can join us in our Community Group, The Cloth Nappy Doctor Chats. This is a safe place to ask questions, share knowledge and find new solutions to common issues.

Whether you’re looking for information on how to choose a cloth nappy or the best way to care for wool soakers, or anything in between, this is the place to come to ask all of your questions.

Finally, welcome. My team and I are here to support you on your cloth nappy journey.
