Today’s post comes from Vashti Wadwell. Vashti is a mother of three and owner of Australia’s only dedicated, bricks and mortar, cloth nappy boutique, Nest Nappies, located in the gorgeous Brisbane suburb of Paddington. Vashti has cloth nappied all three of her children, starting with traditional terry squares nearly 11 years ago and now using a bit of everything on her toddler. With over eight years in the industry, there isn’t much that Vashti hasn’t seen!
Snappi’s are a quick and convenient way to fasten any nappy that doesn’t come with Velcro or poppers. Generally used on flat, pre-fold or basic newborn fitted nappies they are a great alternative to the old nappy pins!
Disposable liners are very convenient and can make nappy changes a breeze. Put one inside your nappy and when your baby soils their nappy simply drop or tip the liner, contents and all, into the toilet. Many disposable liners on the market will not fully biodegrade and most are unsuitable for septic systems.
Fleece liners act as a stay dry barrier in terry or velour nappies or any other nappy that doesn’t come with a built in layer of fleece or suede cloth. Fleece liners are also convenient if you need to use any kind of barrier cream on your baby as they will protect against residue from building up on the absorbent fibres of your nappies.
PUL wet bags
Wet bags come in a huge variety of sizes, closures, print and fabrics. Made of, or lined with, PUL, they are fully breathable which means you can store your nappies whilst you are out without fear of them becoming sweaty and smelly. Also handy for swimmers and other wet items. Many people use a large wet bag as an alternative to a nappy bucket.
