Cloth nappies have come far from old terry towel squares. These days you can find a variety of modern nappies in the market.

One size fits all

The distance between the outer and inner layers of the diaper for placing the pad insert. We usually recommend two inserts for day and a night booster insert for night use.
Designer diapers are usually expensive because of the unique pattern or design of the diaper. More like designer clothes with brand names.
PUL fabric or Minki fabric
PUL diapers are made of polyester which is laminated on the outside of the diaper. These diapers are waterproof and do not require an additional waterproof cover to wear outside. The fabric is breathable and suitable for winter and summer.
Minki is also water-resistant but has a thicker texture and wool, which makes it unsuitable for summer wear. Many market decisions make it difficult to choose. Newborns often have diaper changes at three months of age.
As the baby grows, diaper changes become less frequent and by 3 to 6 months there are about 6-8 diapers a day. As the baby grows, diaper changes become less frequent. Once toilet training begins, babies only need cloth diapers at night.
Finally, consider a variety of cloth diapers from reputable suppliers to suit your budget and lifestyle.
