Switching to cloth nappies, reusable nappies, MCNs or what ever you like to call washablenappies has never been easier.

Top Ten Reasons to Switch to Reusable Nappies

In this comprehensive guide, we’ll explore the top 10 compelling reasons why cloth nappies are the way to go for eco-conscious parents in Australia. As youre trusted cloth nappy experts for 20 years, we’ve got you covered for all the right reasons.¬† From environmental benefits to cost savings and everything in between, discover why cloth nappies are the sustainable choice for your little one.

Reason 1. Reduce Environmental Impact
Cloth nappies drastically cut down on single-use waste and single use disposables helping to minimise Australia’s landfill burden. With many local councils reducing the number of general wast bins to fortnightly, those smelly disposable nappies quickly add up to one smelly bin. Let alone the fact that disposable nappies take up to 500 years (YEARS!) to break down in landfill.¬†

Also did you know that almost every coucnil in Australia does not allow the disposing of faeces of any kind in general waste bins Рand even on the packaging of disposable nappy boxes it says, do not dispose of soiled nappies in your bins. Crazy! So by choosing a reusable nappy over a disposable nappy, means your bins will certainly be less stinkier and less disposables sitting in landfill for the next 500 years. 

Reason 2. Cost Effective 
With the cost of living in Australia sky high, and the cost of disposable nappies increasing modern cloth nappies have seen a surge in popularity over the last few years post covid. Did you know the average family will spend over $5,000 on disposable nappies from birth to toilet training? When you can spend between $600 Р$900 on a full time cloth nappy set up and a little bit of extra washing each week, plus a slight increase in your electrity bills Рthe cost of using cloth nappies is signficiantly less than using disposables. And the beauty if our cloth nappies are built to last, so they are often used across three to four little bums. 

Reason 3. Healthier for Baby Would you rather your nappy choice contained materials like polymers, polypropene, sodium polyacrylate, bromophenol blue OR materials such as bamboo, cotton or hemp? What would you rather feel against your skin?  

The fabrics in modern cloth nappies are designed to wick moisture away from the skin just as quick as disposables, except all our fabrics are made to the highest environmental standards in the world and contain nasties at all. 

Cloth Nappies have also proven to reduce nappy rash plus deliver the feel good factor every time you change that cloth nappy. Trust us, the feel good factor is real. 

Reason 4. Customisable Absorbency The beauty of a reusable nappy is the fact you can add or remove absorbency as your babies needs change. Newborn needs less absorbency than a toddler, so you can adapt and add/remove absorbency for every situation.  

Reason 5 . Stylish Designs.  I mean there is nothing cuter than a little cloth nappy with a bright pretty print running around. Say no more. Cloth Bums rule! 



Reason 6. Supporting Locally Owned Business.

¬†The Baby BeeHinds team have proudly been Australian Owned & Designed for 20 years now.¬† Every purchase with us contributes to our local economy in employment and jobs for local and national people. Sure you could buy some of those china cheapies nappies (that don’t last and don’t work) but really who are those china cheapies supporting?

Reason 7. Community Connection

With local mum meet up groups, Facebook groups, cleaning cloth nappies groups with over 100,000 members or hidden VIP groups for brands Рyou will find your mumma cloth nappy tribe to help you through every step of the way.

Reason 9. Say goodbye to nappy blowouts 
What does this mean? You know, when that massive poop escapes up the back of your baby leaking into every bodily nook and cranny. This is 100% true Рin all my 5 years of using cloth nappies on my babies, we NEVER had a blowout. You get a much better fit around the legs and waist than a disposable nappy, and all the materials are designed to keep everything contained. 

Reason 10. Future Generations 

If you choose to use cloth nappies now, I guarantee when your grandchildren are being born in years to come, parents of the future will have a much more environmentally conscious approach to parenting. By making the change to reusable nappies now, for this generation of little beehinds, you are doing your bit to help the planet for years to come. One small decision now, is a big step for our future generations. 


Doesn't have to be all or nothing.

Even by making small steps towards reducing the number of disposable nappies you use makes a big difference. Start with a reusable swim nappy, or start with one cloth nappy change each day. Not only will you see what we mean about the feel good factor, but you will also be saving up to 365 nappies each year going to landfill.
