Cloth Diapers/nappies

Hi Everyone,

I am 32 weeks pregnant and getting our 'nest' ready for new baby. We would love to cloth diaper but I have no idea where to go about finding some nice and not TOO pricey options in Switzerland (preferably close to central Bern) Does anyone have any knowledge of this ? Also regarding disposable diapers, does anyone know of any eco-friendly (and baby friendly) disposable nappies (for those times when one needs disposables !

Thanks so much

Hi Amski,
Were you able to find cloth diapers in Switzerland? Or anyone that is willing to sell their used diapers?
I would greatly appreciate any pointers.
Thanks!

How old is your child/baby? I have a friend selling a lot of Apple Cheeks but not the newborn size.

www.jubilane.ch has a small selection
www.ecoclothdiaper.com has a huge selection and they ship super fast and cheap

You can also get a lot from Amazon.com now that ship here.

Hi there,

I actually found some new born ones second hand at the time via ricardo. I later purchased 'Hippybottomus' cloth diapers from Australia for when our son was a bit bigger. We have another baby on the way now so we will use them all again

We use stoffywelt.de and have had really good service. Also, Amazon.com.

If you're worried about the environment then you should go for disposable nappies. The amount of washing required does far more *damage* than discarding the nappies. In Switzerland virtually all waste is incinerated so they won't be going into landfill, rather into powering people's washing machines so that they may wash their cloth nappies.

EDIT, just realised this thread is ancient. Same still applies though
