When you type “Modern Cloth Nappies” into Google you will most likely be extremely overwhelmed by the mere number of results relating to those key words.
Although most Modern Cloth Nappies are marketed from Newborn to toilet training we actually recommend not to use cloth for the first few weeks say until the baby is 3-4 weeks old until their systems settle down. Using a disposable nappy in this initial period will protect the nappies from being soiled so badly that they will be stained for life. It will also prevent many leaks as a result of the nappies being too big. As babies grow so much in the first three weeks from birth, you will find they fit much better after baby is at least three weeks old. We found that parents who started using cloth nappies on their baby after the first three weeks generally have a more positive opinion of using cloth nappies!
