A cloth nappy system will last your baby from birth to toilet training and will cost less than $300 to set up and less than $200 for nappy laundry over a 2 1/2 year period.

To use disposable nappies for the same amount of time will cost almost $2,800 for the first baby and nearly $5,500 if you have two children.

By choosing cloth nappies, you can save up to $2,000 for your first child, increasing to over $4,000 for two children. You can save even more if you don’t use the disposable liners, these are obviously an option you can do without.

Save up to $2000 per child whilst they are in nappies!!
