Our US Trip

Hi All,

Our US trip turned out to be great!  We made lots of new friends/contacts in Louisville, Kentucky where we attended the ABC Kid’s Expo.  The expo lasted four days and by the time it had finished we were all pretty exhausted, including our two kids, Emily who’s 11 and Joe who’s 8.

Everyone we spoke to was really impressed and surprised at the fact we offer a two child guarantee on our diapers, plus at our Birth to Potty Pack which includes all the dipers you’ll need plus heaps of extras too!

After the show the kids and us took a little holiday.  We visited Las Vegas and then onto LA to do the Disneyland thing.  We all had a fantastic time and can’t wait till next year’s show.

Take care!

Real Nappies Wins Gold In OHbaby Awards


Real Nappies has won GOLD in the “Best cloth nappy brand” section of the OHbaby Magazine awards.

OHbaby is the largest and most popular baby magazine in NZ, over 5,000 voters cast over 177,000 votes for their favourite products from botty-balm to baby carriers and even the best family car.

OHbaby! publisher Angela Pedersen says

“With such a vast array of products available, it can be overwhelming for new parents to know what to buy when they’re preparing for the arrival of a baby.  Our intention with the OHbaby! awards is to create a list of proven products and services as recommended by other New Zealand mums and dads, giving new parents confidence that they’re buying well”

Over 5,000 voters cast over 177,00 votes for their favourite products – from botty-balm, to baby-carriers and even the best family car.   Angela says

“such a big voting turnout gives real credibility to these awards.  Our winners should rightly be very proud of their win and shout it from the rooftops. What the results show us is that parents are discerning consumers. These aren’t necessarily the cheapest products on the market, but they represent quality and good value for money.

There were 52 Gold Winners and 52 Silver Winners from each of the eight categories – Out & About, Play, Feed, Sleep, Babycare, Home, Shop and Maternity.    Over the coming weeks expect to see the OHbaby! winners logo appear on their packaging and advertising material as the winners promote their award.

Real Nappies‘ Director, Liz Mole says:

“We are absolutely thrilled with the result, we have been claiming to be New Zealand #1 Cloth Diaper for years so it was fantastic to finally be able to prove it be voted Gold Award winners.   Real Nappies Cloth Diapers are such a simple, easy system to use, they make using cloth diapers accessible to everyone – thank you New Zealand for voting Real Nappies #1 Cloth Diaper.”

Real Nappies cloth diapers are a 2-part diaper system made up of a strong, waterproof diaper cover, and a 100% natural cotton diaper.  An optional flushable diaper liner to flush away the solids makes clean-up a breeze.  Real Nappies cloth diapers are sold individually or in easy to buy packs.  Real Nappies, Liz Mole says:

“Our biggest selling product is the Real Nappies Birth To Potty Pack – this takes the guesswork and confusion out of cloth diapers – people grab a pack and know they have all the cloth diapers they need from birth to potty!  It’s excellent value and Real Nappies are the only cloth diaper company to guarantee their diapers to last through 2 children!  We are sure all this helped towards us claiming GOLD in the awards.”

Competition was fierce with many other well known cloth diaper brands in the running to the GOLD spot – but with so many loyal supporters of Real Nappies Cloth Diapers they made it happen for us!  THANK YOU FRIENDS!

Thank you again for voting for us.

CNET's Natalie Morris Tries Cloth Diapers For A Month, find out what she thinks…

It was great to see a CNET’s, Natali Morris, try only cloth diapers for a month and love them!  Yay!

This was someone who has a busy schedule and is certainly not a mom that is tied to the washing machine washing diapers.  She’s a perfect candidate for disposable diapers, but she gave cloth a go and was pleasantly surprised at just how easy she found them.

What were her findings?

Link through here and watch Natali’s experiences with cloth diapers.


So which diapers are Real Nappies?

Real Nappies cloth diapers are a wrap and prefold system similar to the first diaper shown on CNET. They have a 100% cotton diaper, which is separate to the cover.  This makes life SOOOOO much easier, as come diaper change time you simply take out the wet diaper and pop in a dry one.

You keep the same diaper cover on bubs until it gets wet or smelly!

This means less washing, less drying and less cost!

Help I’m so confused!

Natali mentioned that the cloth diaper choices available to new parents are so overwhelming, that many parents just don’t even go there.  I understand that and can totally relate to it!  I know pretty much every cloth diaper out there and when I go online I still get totally confused, Arrrggghhh!

Our solution?

Well this is where the Real Nappies Birth to Potty Pack really comes into it’s own, no more confusing questions like:

What do I need? How many cloth diapers shall I buy?  Which is the best system for me?

Our Birth to Potty Pack is your one-stop solution in a box – everything you will ever need to diaper your baby from Birth up until Potty Trained, all in one box!

How do you know it’s the best system for you?

Put simply, because you, the customer tell us we are the best!  You love our customer service, the quality of our products, the price, the simplicity and that Real Nappies actually work!

PLUS, We are a New Zealand company and are:

  • NZ’s #1 cloth diaper system,
  • The hospital’s choice of diaper to use in Maternity,
  • Used in Daycare Centres

By the way did I also mention we are the ONLY cloth diaper company that gives a 2-child guarantee on our diapers??  We must truly trust in the quality of our products to do that!

Need I say more?  Check us out and discover why Real Nappies cloth diapers will soon become your favourite cloth diaper too.

2 Child Guarantee? Read about the customer who used Real Nappies Cloth Diapers for 4 babies!!

We love to hear from our customers, and the following testimonial was written by a lovely lady who used our Birth to Potty Pack nappies with 4 of her babies – proof our diapers stand the test of time!  2 Child Guarantee – wow this lady made it to 4!

As a new Mum I was keen to provide my baby with the healthiest most natural start in life but found that often this idealist ‘green’ approach was hard to maintain as our lives are much busier than that of our grandmothers who never had to take baby out in the car etc   so when a friend lent me the ‘snug wrap’ to try I was sceptical that I could keep it up as I had failed with the pins and diaper pants before.  However after two days I was on line and purchased my first set.

4 Reasons Why Real Nappies Customers Are So Loyal

Not wanting to boast but we get ALOT of customer feedback – and most of it is good, we’re pleased to say. Yet there seems to be 4 main reasons that once you are a customer of Real Nappies you don’t leave (don’t worry it’s not because we tie you to our diapers)!   Well Why Then?

Well it’s simple really:

1.     Second to none Customer Service. Our Customer Service Team are AWESOME!  They truly are amazing.  Best of all they believe in the product.  All the people on our team use Real Nappies cloth diapers, whether on their own kids, friend’s kids or their grandchildren.  So yes, we know what we are talking about when you ask us a question, and yes, we do use them ourselves!

2.     2-Child Guarantee. That’s right we guarantee our products through 2 of your children*.  So if your Velcro no longer sticks, or your stitching on your diaper cover is coming undone, we replace it (Terms and Conditions do apply).  Do you know of any other reusable diaper that offers this fantastic guarantee?

3.  Real Nappies Work. Well put simply, Real Nappies do what they say they do!  Real Nappies Cloth Diapers do not leak when used properly, Real Nappies prevent diaper rash, save the environment and save you a whole heap of money to boot: so why wouldn’t you use them and stick with them?

3.     Excellent Quality. Well for starters there is no way we could offer such a fantastic 2-child guarantee if our products weren’t top notch quality.  We have scouered the globe for the best quality products we can buy.  Our cotton cloth diapers have the ‘Okeo-tex certification’ and are made of the best Indian Cotton money can buy, our diaper wraps and cotton cloth diapers are used in Day Care Centers and Hospitals in New Zealand, and our flushable, biodegradable diaper bioliners are sold by the truck load to customers around the globe.  We’ve been in the cloth diaper market for over 7 years now and we pass on these years of experience to you, we’ve saved you the hassle of searching for the best cloth diaper system on the market:

Congratulations: you’ve found them…. Welcome to REAL NAPPIES.
