Are you following the Nappy Leaks podcast? This is an awesome Australian cloth nappy podcast, hosted by a couple of our founding members: Vashti from Nest Nappies and Vicki from Bubblebubs, who chat about all things reusable nappy. Check out a list of episodes here.
In the most recent episode, Vicki and Vashti chatted about the ways you can identify a quality cloth nappy, with specific reference to rebranded generic ‘China Cheapies’. It’s an interesting conversation covering manufacturing of nappies in China (and a bit of the history of the Australian manufacturing industry), Australian brands v factory brands, quality indicators to look out for, and why generic factory nappies are so much cheaper than Australian brands. It’s non-judgemental, realising that parents make the best choice for them based on budget and values, but recognises that knowledge can help empower parent to choose and use cloth nappies successfully.
