We found the switch to cloth quite easy and surprised ourselves when we managed to continue with it when I returned to full-time work. Thanks to the support of his teachers we were able to provide cloth nappies for them to use on our boy at childcare, and it even resulted in other families making the switch to cloth nappies too.
The biggest challenge that we struggled with when making the switch was the extra, regular, washing . There was so much information on how to store, clean and prep nappies that it was a bit overwhelming at first, but once we got a handle on it, we didn’t want to go back to disposable nappies.
When we saw how much our waste reduced, it sparked our interest to keep going, slowly making more changes to our lifestyle and choosing more reusable options.
