We Love Cloth Nappies

Cloth nappies come in a bewildering range of styles, brands and prints, but don’t let that put you off. Hiring a kit from us will remove the overwhelm as we have already selected some of the best brands available and offer a mixture of nappy types so you can identify which work best for you without the expense or headache. 

As well as saving you money and reducing the number of single-use disposables you use, cloth nappies are reliable, easy to use, great at containment (no more entire outfit changes needed!) and are super cute. They support healthy hip development and enable your child to be aware of their body cues, which assists with potty training. 

With cloth nappies starting at around £8 each it may seem like a big investment to start with, but they will save you money in the long run (especially if you use them for more than one child). Bear in mind that you’ll only need around 20, rather than buying a pack of disposables each week so you can save around £500 between birth and potty training compared to the cost of disposables. You can also add to your stash gradually, you don’t need all 20 at once. But beware… it can become addictive. You may end up with more than just 20 once you’ve seen all the beautiful prints!

We offer a number of pre-selected nappy kits, in either Newborn or Birth to potty size (suitable from around 3 months). These contain 20 nappies including a range of each of the main types, plus a nappy bucket, mesh bags, wet bags, fleece liners and some disposable liners – everything you need for a full time cloth nappy kit for your child, or children! (yes, it’s possible to use cloth nappies with multiples).

Our kits are hired for 3 months. This gives you the time to get used to how they work, establish your washing routine and identify which ones you get on best with. We provide full washing details and guides on how to fit each nappy type and offer support throughout to answer any questions that arise. Kits are sterilized between hires so you can be confident that you can start using them straight away. For customers we are able to offer discount codes for many brands, if you want to create or add to your own stash. 

We ask you to register on our portal (hire.storkandthebees.com) to book your kit. If needed, we can then deduct the value of a nappy if there is any issues with it on return – but we’ve been running since 2017 and we’ve not needed to so far! Please read our Terms and Conditions for more details. 

You can also hire individual nappies; if there are any types or brands of nappies you are after in particular, please contact us and we will check for you if we have it or if we can get it.

Hertfordshire residents can get discounts with many retailers through their latest Reusable Nappies scheme.


It’s worth trying a few different types of nappies to see which work for your family. Descriptions of the types of nappies coming soon. For now, here are some of the nappies we have in the library.
