How to avoid a large upfront cost

2 CommentsThursday, 23 April 2015

The financial pain of cloth nappies is paying upfront whereas disposables you just keep paying weekly.  You don't have to buy a complete system of cloth in one go you can gradually build up.

You could start with one night time nappy and 5 daytime nappies.  You'd wash daily and top up with a few disposables each day.  I'd wash each night and wouldn't buy a bucket or storage bag until later on instead i'd just put each soiled nappy in the washing machine and wash at the end of day making up a load with sicky bibs and muslins.

As you can afford more top up with a few more nappies each time and slowly decrease the amount of disposables you're using and washing less frequently.

Another alternative that people use is topping up their main nappies with a pack of terry squares to use at home. This cheaply boosts your nappy supply decreasing your washing and reliance on disposables,

If you have a nappy system in mind and would like to split the purchase across several orders but you're not sure how just drop us an email or give us a call and we'll break it down to match your budget.
