Cloth Nappy Shopping List

If you have started researching cloth nappies, it can be easy to become overwhelmed by how many cloth nappies you need, plus all of the supposed accessories you require. Check out our cloth nappy shopping list recommendations to pool your money into the right products from the start.

Before you start purchasing your cloth nappies ensure you have:

  • a washing machine
  • somewhere to dry your cloth nappies
  • a folding fairy (this one may be difficult to find).

The first step is purchasing your cloth nappies. For a newborn to be in cloth nappies you need a minimum of 24 changes which can consist of 24 all in one cloth nappies or 24 prefolds and 8 covers. Alternatively if you decide to start with one size cloth nappies, you will need a minimum of 20 one size cloth nappies up to 1 year old. This is assuming you will be washing every day, if you wish to wash less often, just add onto your stash the number of nappies you will use in a day. For example a newborn will need an additional 10 to 12 changes.

As to which accessories you require, these are your top 3:

  • 2 wetbags for out and about.
  • 1 or 2 storage containers or hanging wetbags for the dirty nappies until washing day arrives.
  • 6 additional boosters, these can range of a bamboo trifold to a rectangular hemp/cotton insert.
