Classic Reusable Cloth Nappies
Reusable nappies take up far less space in your home than boxes of disposable nappies. The light weight makes cloth nappies much easier to travel with on road trips or aeroplane flights. You can wash cloth nappies and reuse them while your child is young, and when they outgrow them, you can pass them down to younger children. This makes them an excellent long-term investment. Do you have questions about the benefits of cloth nappies in NZ? You’re in the right place.
Are Cloth Nappies Worth It?
Reusable nappies can save you thousands of dollars over a few years of your baby’s life. At first, the savings may seem minor. Babies go through several nappies daily, and each disposable nappy costs 50 cents or less. Do the maths, and you may find that cloth diapers can save you $2 or even $3 per day. You can save $14 to $21 per week by washing your nappies instead of buying disposable alternatives. You can possibly save $80 or more each month if your baby frequently soils their nappies.
A single baby may need their nappy changed approximately 6,000 times between the ages of newborn and toddler. Each disposable nappy costs 25 cents, which adds up to $1,500. If each nappy costs 50 cents, your total is $3,000, and of course, a baby who needs their nappy changed even more often will raise the price even more. Save money by investing in cloth nappies in NZ instead.
If you have a washing machine in your home or live near a laundromat, throwing cloth nappies in with the rest of your load is very simple. Depending on the number of nappies you buy, you may need to do extra laundry each week. Fortunately, the washing machine can wash your nappies quickly and easily. By spending only a tiny amount of time cleaning an extra load of laundry, you can save a considerable amount of money.
Take a step back to think about each baby dirtying 6,000 nappies in just a few years. As you can imagine, 6,000 disposable nappies can significantly impact the environment. Switching to cloth nappies is a much better choice for you, your child, and the planet.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Best Age to Start Cloth Nappies?
The best age to start your baby on cloth nappies may depend on your life plans. Newborns will not fit in their cloth nappies for long, so it may be best to wait until your babies are in the weight range of 4-15kgs before you begin using cloth nappies. However, cloth nappies can be an excellent long-term investment if you plan to have more kids.
How Many Cloth Nappies Should a Mum Need?
You will use cloth nappies when your baby is a newborn. As your baby grows, they will use fewer nappies. If you would like to limit the number of times you need to run the washing machine, we recommend owning 24 to 36 cloth nappies. On average, this is less than half the amount of disposable nappies your baby will go through in one week. You can continue washing and using your nappies forever, so the initial cost will quickly pay for itself.
How Often Should a Cloth Nappy Be Changed?
Cloth nappies are less absorbent than disposable ones. Because of this, you should plan to change a cloth nappy every 4 hours to avoid overflow. However, newborns may need their nappies changed more frequently (we recommend every two hours when the baby is awake). If you notice pee in your baby’s cloth nappy, it is a good idea to change the nappy as soon as possible. Frequently changing your baby will prevent discomfort, not to mention stink and stains.
How Often Should a Cloth Nappy Be Washed?
For best results, we recommend washing cloth nappies every other day. Using cloth nappies may require you to run your washing machine more often each week, so you should consider whether or not you have the free time to do so before investing in cloth nappies. Our advice? Wash clothes more often but run smaller loads. Smaller loads will allow your clothes more room to tumble, which can help your washing machine clean them efficiently.
Be cautious about underloading your washing machine, as this can prove ineffective. If you need a few nappies cleaned quickly, consider hand washing instead. Nappies are small, and the most crucial part of washing them is to remove leftover dampness and smell. Wash frequently to prevent stains from forming.
