Modern Cloth Nappies 101 – City of Bayswater

April 13 @ 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM

Free

Join the City for this free, relaxed, family-friendly workshop and learn about modern cloth nappies from birth to toilet training.

Presented by engineer, scientist and now The Nappy Guru, Kam Andrews has a wealth of knowledge and experience with cloth nappies, using them from birth with her youngest child.

This workshop is a great opportunity to:

  • Find out what you need to get started
  • Compare disposable and cloth nappies in terms of cost, environmental impact and time
  • Touch and feel various styles, materials and brands of cloth nappies
  • Practise fitting nappies on demo dolls
  • Learn how to effectively wash nappies and deal with poo
  • Talk with and make connections with like-minded parents
  • Get support and tips if you are already using cloth nappies

All attendees take home a complimentary Cloth Nappy Starter Pack, which includes 1 x cloth nappy, 1 x wash bag, and some helpful items to start or support your journey.

Bookings are essential.

About the Cloth Nappy Rebate:

The City of Bayswater is offering a cloth nappy rebate to reduce waste and encourage sustainable change. City residents are able to apply for a 50% rebate of up to $100 for either the hire or purchase of modern cloth nappies.

Residents need to attend a Cloth Nappy Workshop organized by the City of Bayswater or Town of Bassendean before applying for the rebate. This ensures that all the information and support needed to successfully transition to using cloth nappies is provided.
