I’m often asked what the essential cloth nappy accessories are, or what I would recommend for people starting out with cloth nappies. The short answer is that other than a baby and the nappies themselves, you don’t actually need anything else. There are a few things that might make your life with cloth a little easier.

Storing dirty cloth nappies
When it comes to storing dirty nappies, then you have a few options. At
Dealing with dirty nappies
Once you’ve changed your little one, you are going to have a dirty nappy to deal with. When it comes to wet nappies, then you can just pop them into your nappy bucket or wet bag. If there is something more to deal with, then you will want to remove any solids before you wash the nappy. There are a number of different ways to do this. Personally, I like using a nappy sprayer, this is a handy device that attaches to the cold water inlet on your toilet and then is used to spray solids off the nappy and into the toilet bowl. Another option
More absorbent nappies
Sometimes, you might find that you need to increase the absorbency of a cloth nappy. One of the essential cloth nappy accessories for this is a nappy booster. Available in lots of different fabrics such as microfibre, cotton and bamboo. Personally for overnight use, which is when people often need more absorbency, then I like to use hemp. Most boosters are thick pads of absorbent fabric that fit inside the nappy with your usual insert.
If you are already using cloth nappies, then you might want to think about cloth wipes. Why spend money on disposable wipes that are thrown away after a single use. The great thing about cloth
Flat nappy accessories
Flat nappies have a number of things that you might need to use with them. They usually need some kind of nappy cover. These help to stop liquid from leaking out onto the clothes and can be used over and over again. Even if you don’t usually use flat or pre-fold cloth nappies, a couple of covers can be a handy thing to have as a backup. Any absorbent fabric could be used in the cover, meaning that you can use them when you don’t have access to your usual nappies. They are particularly handy for emergency kits.
