Newborn Starter Kit – 7 Nappies – £101.25
This is a starter kit of extra small nappies to use for the first few months of your babies life. 7 nappies will get you through about 20-24 hours. This kit would be ideal for parents completely new to cloth nappies who would like to start using from birth and try a few different styles and brands, it gives you some super easy all in one nappies plus the absorbent and leak proof two part nappies which work so well on newborns as they are excellent at containing the newborn poo which disposables are useless at! You will not have enough nappies to use full time and will have to mix with disposable nappies whilst waiting for the cloth nappies to be washed and dried. (You need around 15 – 24 nappies for full time use, newborn nappies generally only fit until around 12lbs, so it would be an expensive option to buy 24 newborn nappies.) This kit will give you a sense of what cloth nappies are like and the difference between styles with the plan being that once your baby is over 9lbs/4kg you would purchase the bigger birth to potty nappies in the styles you like best. If you want to go ‘full time cloth’ from the beginning and are expecting a small baby then prefolds are also an excellent option – SEE HOW TO USE PREFOLDS ON A NEWBORN YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE
I am often asked which is the ‘best cloth nappy’ but this is impossible to answer. First of all because a good day time nappy is often different from a good night time nappy (the best night time nappies are two part shaped nappies and made from bamboo, cotton or hemp with a separate outer PUL wrap). Also a lot depends on an individual’s situation, drying space, size of baby, financial and lastly but no less importantly what patterns you like ! Most parents end up with birth to potty nappies and these generally do not fit a newborn for the first 2 – 6 weeks. This kit is ideal if you are having a small baby, or twins or would just like a few cute slim fitting newborn nappies for the first few months. You can mix it with one of the other starter kits to increase your nappy numbers or just use it in conjunction with disposable nappies until your baby is big enough for the birth to potty nappies.
You may want to consider purchasing one of our accessory kits. Please read the washing nappy section as it is very important to wash correctly. If you have a particular preference for colour/pattern please let me know in the message box at checkout and I will do my best to accommodate.
