Why Use Cloth Nappies?
You've heard this before..because cloth nappies are better for the environment, as a general guide a parent would use on average 5000 nappies, it takes an average of 500 years to breakdown 'a' nappy, nappies are not as biodegradable as we think, they need the correct environment to be able to break down correctly. Do you want to contribute to the masses of waste we produce or do you want to join a growing movement of people who are making a conscious effort to decrease the amount of waste we produce.
WiIl a Cloth Nappy fit my baby?
As a general rule these nappies will fit up to 17kg, if your baby is 17kg they may not fit as they are at the higher end of the fitting, each baby is different in shape and size so we use the weight as a 'guide' only. They are adjustable and have snaps that can be used to adjust the cloth nappy in and out depending on the size of your baby.
My baby is at the 'I can't sit still stage' how do you do up the buttons?
My babies do not lie down let alone lie still, I simply began doing the buttons up pre cleaning baby and made underwear then sat bubs on my knees and put them on like undies, hold onto the button areas so they dont pop open when you give a tug and jiggle, then gently push the nappy up in between bubs thighs and away you go!
Are Cloth Nappies easy to clean?
Cloth nappies are easy to clean, sure it takes an extra couple of steps than just taking out the old poly plastic to the overflowing garbage, however parents have been cleaning nappies for years and it can be done, we know you are not worried about pee in a nappy that's easy, soak it or rinse it or rinse cycle (there is no hard and fast rule no one is coming to check on your ability to clean a nappy, I definitely have other things to be doing) it's the poop! well either flick it in the toilet or rinse it into a bucket then drop it in the toilet and then send your nappy to wash, yes there are fancy hoses and tap heads that can be installed to help remove extra poo, it's not necessary, People always ask us about this and sometimes they ask us if they are doing it right... we provide easy steps we have been doing this for over 2 years with our bubs and our nappies are still white and working.
How long will my Beeswax Wrap Last?
With good care and following the instructions sent with the products a beeswax wrap should last up to a year, they do wear away so if you are wiping and scrubbing this item it will tear away at the coating applied. Warm soapy water and a hand wash is recommended!
