FAQs

Do I have to touch Poo?

Nope! When you have the right setup for Modern Cloth Nappies, there is no need for you to be getting icky at all!

Here’s how it’s done:

Dealing with wee: Simply remove nappy from baby and store in a dry pail, or lidded bucket. Wash.

Dealing with newborn poo: Just the same as above! 

Dealing with solids poo: Try rolling/scraping poo into the toilet, store in a dry pail or lidded bucket. Wash. Or to make it even easier, line the nappy with a reusable liner, shake into the toilet and wash.

Do I have to soak or bleach my nappies to get rid of the stains?

Nope!

After completing our recommend wash routine, hang your nappies out to dry in natural sunlight, and sunlight will do all of the hard work for you! Stains will be gone, and your nappies will be left fresh as daisies!

Do I need a special washing routine for Modern Cloth Nappies?

You can check out our washing recommendations here but in a nutshell it's all pretty basic:

1. Full Rinse Cycle

2. Warm wash, no hotter than 40 degrees with a full dose of detergent

3. Line Dry for best results or in a tumble dryer on cool (inserts only)

Do I need a special washing detergent with Modern Cloth Nappies?

Nope! Anything natural is good! However, we do recommend avoiding softeners, enzymes (these coat fabric and reduce absorbency) and bleach (breaks down PUL waterproofing).

Can I use Fudgey Pants at night?

Yes! Every baby is different (sleeps longer/shorter, wee’s more/less) so the amount of absorption required will vary from baby to baby.

Fudgey Pants 3-in-1 include built-in absorbency and an insert and booster combo, which when combined can often be sufficient for night times. If you do happen to require a little extra absorption to get you through the night, you can choose from our Overnights.

Can I use Modern Cloth Nappies at Daycare?

Yes! Daycares are more than happy to use any type of nappy you choose - and the Fudgey Pants 3-in-1 Pant is especially daycare friendly!

If you have your nappies folded ready to go and pack them in a Wet-Bag, then it’s really no different for the daycare staff to using disposables.

How do I use Modern Cloth Nappies when out and about?

So many Modern Cloth Nappy newbies are unsure of using Modern Cloth Nappies when out and about, but its really, really easy - all you really need is a Wet-bag!

Here’s how it’s done:

Change bub as you normally would. If you happen to be near a toilet, tip any solid #2’s in (if not, no biggie, just skip this part), before rolling up your nappy, fasten with a snap. Store dirty nappies in a Wet-Bag (leak, and smell-proof too!) until you get home, and wash as per usual.

Do I need to change my baby more frequently with Modern Cloth Nappies?

Fudgey Pants are designed to be worn for the same length of time as a disposable nappy during the day.

At nights, depending on your bub (light / heavy wetter or sleeping through..) you may require a little extra absorption to get you through, select our Overnights.

Do I need to change the Nappy Covers each time I change Baby?

Yes. Each nappy cover is lined with a stay-dry suede cloth to keep bub feeling comfy and dry, even after doing a wee. It is important that each nappy cover, along with the absorbent inserts are washed after every use to keep them hygienic.

Can I use Rash Creams with my Modern Cloth Nappies?

Yes - it's recommended to use a liner as oil-based nappy creams will build up on the fibres of the absorbent insert, and over time reduce its absorbency. Either choose a non-oil based rash cream.

Think you may have oil on your Modern Cloth Nappies? No worries! A Strip Wash will make them as good as new!
