Reusable nappy workshop - Mon 19 Feb online

This event has passed Register

Event description

Register to learn more about reusable nappies and how you can reduce waste and save over $2000 for each nappy-wearing child.

Reusable nappies have transformed from the old-fashioned folded cloth nappies, commonly known as terry towels. They are now more user-friendly, compact, and available in a wide range of stylish designs. Whilst folded nappies can be useful for the newborn stage, reusable nappies come with improved designs and adjustable fastings, making it easier to fit and use.

The workshop will cover:

  • The different types of reusable nappies and how to choose one
  • How to get the right fit, and how to adjust resizable nappies through the different stages of your baby's growth
  • Different methods to wash and dry dirty nappies - to suit different lifestyles
  • The cost savings of reusable nappies per nappy-wearing child
  • The health and waste benefits of reusable nappies

If you have a modern cloth nappy and a doll handy, bring these to the Zoom session to practice while we talk.
