MODERN CLOTH NAPPIES by Waste Education Officer Nabilla Antipas

Friday, 17 December (10.00am to 11.00am)
Location: Eaton Community Library, NEW location at 2 Sanford Way, Eaton

Modern cloth nappies (MCNs) are easier than you may think. Switching to cloth nappies will reduce your environmental impact, save you money, are better for your baby and come in fun designs.

Join Nabilla Antipas to learn all you need to know about using modern cloth nappies in this relaxed, family-friendly workshop. Nabilla’s mission is to get more bums in cloth by simplifying what you need to know to get started.

In this workshop you will get to touch and play with various types of cloth nappies, learn how to fit one, how to effectively wash and care for them, and discover how to keep your baby’s skin healthy. You’ll get honest answers to all your cloth nappy questions from a mum who has used MCNs with her kids from birth. We’ll cover:

  • What is a drypail?
  • What do I do with the poo?
  • What type of cloth nappy is best for me?
  • How do I get them clean and fresh every wash?
  • How do I manage day care and outings?
  • Where do I get them, nappy libraries and buying second hand?

Nabilla will troubleshoot for those parents who are already using MCNs, offering tips and tweaks to suit their bub and lifestyle.
Bookings are essential and can be made via THIS LINK.

If you have questions or would like some additional support with learning to use your new FOGO bin but can’t make these workshops, please phone the team on 1800 260 033 to organise a Waste Officer to visit you at home.
