Nappy Library

Modern Cloth Nappy Hire

The Nappy Guru’s Modern Cloth Nappy Library is the ultimate  “try before you buy” service that makes it an easy and stress free and economical way to start your cloth nappy journey with all the additional accessories and support you need to succeed!

Newborn Hire Kit: Did you know that newborns go through 500 nappy changes in their first 6 weeks of life and that most One Size nappies are too bulky or ill fitting?  So why not reduce the environmental footprint while having fun choosing which gorgeous teeny tiny nappy will go on next and save your self the hassle of buying and selling newborn nappies that your child will grow out of within a few weeks!

We suggest that you choose the start date as your  Expected Delivery Date (EDD). You can choose to receive the kit before your EDD for those who want to start from hospital (1 week in advance) or after your baby arrives earthside and you are settled in at home (1-2 weeks after EDD). Please note that your hire starts from the day after your kit is received (picked up or delivered).  

Brand Trial Hire Kit & Night Nappy Hire Kit: Just like a book library but with nappies! With so many nappy brands out there and new ones popping up each week, it can be overwhelming to figure out which ones will suit your family! This kit will help you make an informed decision with all the information at your fingertips! Each trial kit comes with a comprehensive contents list outlining the brand, style, model, size,  material, and the RRP with photos. Now you can compare prices and fit of different nappies side by side together in one place on your baby without the additional postage costs and hassle of buying several trial packs from various suppliers or trawling through buy and sell pages. And just like a real library – if you don’t see a nappy you want to try – request it and we can try to get it in by the time you need it! You can rest easy knowing that the nappies you receive are in somewhere in the list of top 25 favourites by other cloth nappy users!

Both Newborn and Brand Trial kits have enough nappies to do cloth “full time” and the nappies and accessories are worth over $600! 

Extend your hire: Especially handy for Newborn kits! If your baby  is looking like they will fit the newborn nappies after the standard 4 weeks hire, you can choose to extend the hire for $30/week (for approx the same price for a box of disposables) after week 3  – giving you all the flexibility you need in case your baby grows out of the nappies (subject to availability). Discounted long term hire fees are available those who want the peace of mind of having the newborn kits available for longer. 

Pricing: For Newborn and Brand Trial Kits: Standard 4 weeks hire = $140 

Extend your hire to:

  • 5 weeks for $165    
  • 6 weeks for $190
  • 7 weeks for $200
  • 8 weeks for $210

For longer than 9 weeks for extra $10/week.  Final pricing and availability will be confirmed once the booking form (below) is received. 

Rebates and Subsidies: Residents of City of Cockburn and City of Vincent are eligible for subsidised nappy hire once they attend a Modern Cloth Nappy workshops provided by their council presented by The Nappy Guru. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for the next workshop! Residents of City of Melville, City of Fremantle and Town of East Fremantle maybe eligible to claim 50% of the hire fees (upto a max $100) directly from their council. 

The subsidy applicant must pay the $100 Bond which acts as the booking fee directly to The Nappy Guru to confirm the booking. Once approved by the council,  the hire cost is reduced by the subsidy.  To make it easier for local councils to keep track with budgets and spending, The Nappy Guru will invoice the council directly  once the Bond has been paid by the applicants with the booking form. Cloth Nappy Hire Subsidy through a local council effectively work out to be very low cost for the family once the nappies are returned in reasonable condition (see our Nappy Hire Terms & Conditions for more on reasonable condition). 

If you are a resident of a council that does NOT offer a subsidy or rebates as yet – why not lobby them to get on board? Use this letter template with all the facts and figures to send to your local Councillor or waste officer

Sanitation of Nappies: All nappies are professionally cleaned between hires as per the Strip and Sanitise method recommended by Clean Cloth Nappies.com for your peace of mind. 

Hire fees do NOT include postage. We use Sendle, Couriers Please or Australia Post to get the nappies delivered to you on time.  For metro areas around Australia this is approx $15. Out of metro areas and PO boxes delivery will be via Australia post and will cost approx $30.  You can use Courier services such as Sendle and Couriers Please or Australia Post to return the nappies after hire.  

Local pick up (and drop off) available from The Nappy Guru HQ in  Mt Nasura WA 6112 with prior notice.

You can even choose to have The Nappy Guru hand deliver your hire kit if you live in the Perth Metro area for a private demo! For just $100, I will “show you the ropes” by going through the nappies and hire kit contents, how to use them, the washing routine on your own washing machine and demonstrate the correct fitting techniques in a 45 min private consultation. This is a great way for you and your partner to be on the same page and get all those questions answered to make the transition to cloth nappies even easier – especially if you cannot attend a workshop!

I've found this a really great, affordable service that has helped ease me into using cloth nappies right from the start with my little one and would be a great way to get more people using cloth without the initial huge set up cost.

Best thing was being able to try all the different brands. It was long enough to get to know the different brands and even retry some styles I initially dismissed but found ok after being a bit more knowledgeable.
