Layby: Terms & Conditions

As new / to-be parents you start looking early at all of the essentials that you are going to need for your new baby. It can be quite overwhelming once you add all the cost involved with setting up the nursery, buying the car seat, etc etc. Cloth Nappies are an investment on top of this! While considering whether or not cloth nappies are the way you want to go, is important to realise that nappies are the only piece of clothing that your baby is going to wear 24 hours a day for up to 2 ½ years. 

Many first time parents are put off buying cloth nappies because of the up front cost. This is understandable because they are looking at an investment of around $600 - $1000 for a full time (Birth-to-Potty) set of cloth nappies. With this in mind we encourage (new) parents to start their cloth nappy stash early.

Choose to layby and treat the weekly payment for cloth nappies as if you were going to the supermarket and buying disposable nappies. When you spread the cost out over your pregnancy, reusable nappies are much more affordable than going to the supermarket each week once your baby is born. Never run out of nappies again!

On average, if you start paying off a layby for nappies at around $30 per week for the final 27 weeks of your pregnancy, you would not have to buy any nappies for the next 2 ½ years. Obviously this cost can vary between brands and styles but this is around the cost of a birth to potty pack of cloth nappies.
