Newborn Nappy Swap Kit

We understand that newborns grow FAST! This kit is made for those who would like to hire a newborn cloth nappy kit for 3 months but are afraid that their baby will grow out of the nappies before the hire period is finished.

How it works

It’s simple, if you have booked our newborn nappy hire kit for a 3 month time period, and your baby is not on the smaller side, you will probably find that the Close Parent newborn nappies will start to be quite small after a few weeks. Once you notice that the Close Parent newborn nappies are not fitting well any more, we will swap them with larger nappies to last you the rest of the hire duration.

The swap kit contains a minimum of 20 nappy changes, enough for full time. It consists of a variety of newborn and birth-to-potty nappies that fit well on the smaller end. The kit includes some or all of the following:

Example of a newborn swap kit
  • Baba+Boo newborn pocket nappies
  • Ecopipo all in two one size nappies
  • Close Pop-in birth to potty nappies
  • Tickle Tots all in one nappy
  • Charlie Banana one size nappy

You will be able to hold onto the nappy bucket, laundry net and wipes given with the initial newborn nappy hire kit for the duration of the hire. We will provide more paper liners if needed and can also provide fleece liners.

You may also choose to book this kit on its own without having booked a previous newborn kit. In this case you can choose to hire the full kit for 3 months or half the kit for 4 weeks as a part time trial.

Hire duration

This kit will be delivered once the tiny newborn hire kit no longer fits your baby. You will then be able to keep it until 12 weeks have passed from the delivery of the first newborn kit.

If you have a larger newborn, you may choose to have only this kit delivered to you instead of using it as a swap kit. In this case, the hire will last 12 weeks.

If you would like to hire only half of this kit as a part time trial (10 nappies), the hire will last 4 weeks.

Delivery

Swap kit

The kit will be delivered within a few days of requesting the swap.

Sole booking

You can opt to have your kit delivered 1 week before baby’s due date or once you return from hospital after baby is born. Upon delivery we will explain how each nappy is used and how to care for the nappies. 

If the kit was delivered before baby was born the hire period will start from baby’s birthday, whereas if the kit was delivered after baby’s birth the hire period will start on delivery.

Cancellation

Should you wish to cancel your hire kit before delivery, a full refund will be given. Once your hire kit has been delivered, the hire fee cannot be refunded except in cases of stillbirth/SIDS.

Returns

The nappies must ready for collection on the last day of the hire period. They must be returned clean with lint free Velcro and not damaged. Do not worry if the nappies appear stained. This is common with breastfed poo and stains can easily removed by drying nappies in the sun. It is very important to follow the washing instructions given with the kit to avoid damaging the nappies. We do expect a degree of wear and tear, but excessive or deliberate damage will result in part or all the deposit being kept to cover the cost of a replacement. It is very important to use only non-bio powder detergent and not to use bleach, sanitizers or fabric conditioner.
