Reusable cloth nappies have come a long way from terry towelling squares! Modern cloth nappies don’t need pins or soaking and come in a lot of fun designs. Making the switch to cloth nappies will reduce the waste you send to landfill and save you money. Switch your thinking is offering a free trial of a modern cloth nappy library, making it easy for you to switch from disposables and find a cloth nappy that suits the needs of you and your baby.

- What are modern cloth nappies and how do they work?
- How do I know if modern cloth nappies are right for my family and if so which type should I choose?
- What is in the Switch your thinking modern cloth nappy library trial pack?
Up to 50 eligible families in metropolitan Perth will receive a pack of modern cloth nappies and accessories to try free for a month. Once the trial month is finished, simply return the clean nappies in a reply paid Australia Post satchel. The nappies will be disinfected and provided to another family to try.
You will be asked to complete a ten minute survey, before and after the trial, to let us know about your experience.
While we hope the trial will help you find a style of nappy that suits you and your baby, there is no requirement to continue using the nappy library or to purchase anything.
Modern cloth nappies are shaped, fitted, washable, reusable nappies. Typically made from fabrics such as hemp and bamboo they are the same shape as a disposable nappy and most fasten using press studs or Velcro.
They are easy to put on and don’t require pins, soaking or bleaching.
Modern cloth nappies come in a range of styles, brands, sizes and prices.
The right style for your baby will depend on his/her size and shape and as well as your family’s lifestyle.
The large number of options available can be overwhelming for parents and carers that are new to modern cloth nappies. Subscribing to a nappy library gives you the opportunity to try out a range of styles, brands and sizes to see which will work best for you and your bub without investing in nappies that might not fit.
