Parents use cloth nappies for various reasons. And you know what? There isn’t only one right reason. So whether you’ve chosen cloth nappies to save money or to be more environmentally friendly (or even if you’re undecided), the first step to cloth nappying is learning cloth nappy terms and the basics of buying reusable cloth nappies.

Cloth Nappy Absorbency Layers
Every cloth nappy buying guide should start with the basics of absorbency levels. It is the hardest-working nappy layer, after all.
There are numerous material options like bamboo, organic cotton, fleece, wool, and more. Some fabrics are used alone, while some can be used together. The absorbency levels of these materials range from low to high, making some great for everyday use and others better for naps and bedtime. Cloth nappy absorbency options also vary by care, use, layers needed, whether they have to be prepped, and price.
Here at GroVia, we offer four types of absorbency layers:
- Organic cotton soakers - https://grovia.com.au/collections/absorbency/products/grovia-organic-cotton-soaker-pad
- No-prep soakers - https://grovia.com.au/collections/absorbency/products/no-prep-soaker
- Biosoakers - https://grovia.com.au/collections/absorbency/products/no-prep-soaker
- Prefolds - https://grovia.com.au/collections/pre-folds
The GroVia Hybrid Cloth Nappy is an all-in-two style made of a waterproof shell and your choice of a cloth reusable or disposable inner absorbency layer. The hybrid system is one of our easiest and most flexible systems. Hybrid cloth nappies work for daytime, daycare, traveling, and overnight needs.
All in One
If you want simplicity and convenience above all else, AIOs are for you. They’re just as easy to use as disposables—there’s nothing to stuff or fold—so a cloth nappy reluctant, like a babysitter, should also appreciate these organic, one-piece cloth diapers. With the trim design and stretchy sides, you can easily use our All In One Cloth Nappies.
We also have Newborn AIO's. With a quick-dry, sewn-in soaker and absorbent, soft material, this type of newborn cloth nappy is sized and designed for parents and their newest additions.
The GroVia O.N.E. Cloth Nappy is a generously sized, one-size cloth nappy that you can custom fit from infancy to toddlerhood. O.N.E. comes with both a hook and loop and snap closure option, so you get to choose what works best for you and your baby. And it gets better. With our modular soaker system that includes a small and a large soaker, even a heavy overnight wetter won’t wake up because of nappy leaks.
Nappying is a personal experience. There are as many opinions and judgments as there are nappying products. But at the end of the day, the choice is yours to make.
