Information and Advice

Plush Pants Cloth Nappies offers a complete, individual cloth nappy advice service.

Simply telephone me (01865 407574) or e-mail christine @plushpants.co.uk (omit the space), telling me a bit about yourself and what help you need, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

All the nappy advice I give is specific to your needs (rather than a "standard" response), so it may take a little while for me to respond in detail, however I will usually reply within one working day. If you live in Oxfordshire, you can also arrange a face to face nappy demonstration - which makes a world of difference!  Check our Facebook page for details of forthcoming events we're attending, or ask about a nappy demo.

I have 4 children close in age, and from the arrival of the first baby we didn’t have a nappy free day for 6 ½ years! In that time I reckon we must have changed at least 18,000 nappies! I started out as a disposable user, and switched to washable nappies with my second child. I remember being full of questions to begin with, and because of the help and advice I got, I used my washable nappies successfully on 3 children. I’m very happy to give you all the nappy advice and support you need, whatever stage you’re at.

Our information articles were written to attempt help parents answer some of their questions about washable nappies. Click below to view the articles, more are added from time to time.

 

Nappy News October 2008

Washable nappies are up to 40% better for the environment than disposables; a new report from the government has stated!

The key finding of the updated Life Cycle Assessment Report 2008 shows that the environmental benefits are achieved by following simple washing guidelines like:

  • avoiding tumble drying nappies;
  • using A-rated appliances; and
  • washing in full loads at no more than 60 degrees.

These are all measures recommended by washable nappy manufacturers and commonly used by parents. The report highlights that unlike disposables, washable nappies put parents in control of the impact they have on the environment.

Parents using washable nappies will also be financially better off. It has long been known that washable nappies save parents hundreds of pounds and now this advice on washing methods, which are supported and promoted by Go Real (formerly the Real Nappy Campaign), will help reduce fuel bills too. The savings in costs and for the environment are even better when washable nappies are used on a second child, as many families do.
