I know I have said it before but I am saying it again: the world of cloth nappies is very big and as every child’s size, shape and toileting habits are different you may find your ‘perfect’ cloth nappy does not suit someone else and the other way around. While some people are sold on one-size-fits-all nappies others prefer the more custom fit of a sized nappy. If you fall in this last category you might want to check out this great Australian cloth nappy label called Hatchlings Cloth Nappies.

Hatchlings Cloth Nappies are a side snapping nappy using a sized waterproof wrap and one-size snap-in inserts. The Australian made waterproof wraps are available in size small (3-7kg), medium (6.5-11kg) and large (9-17kg) and come in six great colours. So although you will need to upgrade to a bigger wrap as your child grows you can still use the same inserts which will keep the costs down, and compared to disposable nappies you will definitely notice huge savings on your grocery bill!

Designed by a down-to-earth Aussie mum the Hatchlings nappies are a fuss free nappy with lots of clever features. Take for example the slim fit, low rise cut (so the nappy fits under baby’s belly), elasticised back for maximum containment and the quick drying time. Hatchlings nappies feature a generously sized microfiber and bamboo core that is very absorbent and soft on baby’s skin.

I very much appreciate the wide inserts as this really catches everything, even if baby is sleeping, rolling, twisting and turning. The inserts get more absorbent after a few washes and you’ll end up with less washing, once you know roughly how long an insert ‘lasts’ you simply snap a clean insert into the same waterproof wrap. The double side snaps allow you to create the ideal fit for your baby’s legs and waist separately = no leaks.

A complete Hatchlings Cloth Nappy costs $29.95 and a 2-pack of snap-in inserts costs $25, but if you really want to save money you’ll love the value packs for part-time and full-time use.
