Try before you buy – now possible with Patatini!
The advantages of cloth nappies are endless, they are better for the environment, better for your baby and better for your pocket. Starting off, however can be quite the challenge – it’s hard to know which brands to buy and whether cloth nappies will suit your lifestyle.
I was in the same position when I started considering switching to cloth back in 2018. I just knew that I didn’t want to keep throwing away garbage bag after garbage bag of disposable nappies. Back then I took a step in the dark, and just bought a full stash of nappies online. When I was pregnant with my second, I knew that a newborn would not fit into the one size nappies, so as I did before, I made the quick decision of buying a full stash of newborn nappies. Little did I know that my daughter was a big baby and promptly grew out of them after only 4 weeks! To make matters worse, she still didn’t fit well into the one-size nappies I had and so, yet again I had to buy even more nappies!
Putting away my super-cute newborn nappies so quickly, made me feel like I should make these nappies available to other parents to use on their babies. At least they wouldn’t go to waste! With some research, I noticed that nappy hire is not something that is new but is actually very common in countries like the UK and Australia; so, I decided to give it a shot and made my own nappy hire
