In 1946, the first waterproof cover was introduced. A Westport housewife named Marion Donovan, invented the "Boater", a waterproof covering for cloth Nappies. Marion was granted 4 patents for her designs, including the use of plastic snaps that replaced the traditional and dangerous "safety pins".
As disposable nappies were developing from nothing to a billion dollar industry, cloth nappies were becoming more and more functional and convenient.
We now live in a time where you can choose between 500 different colours, prints and styles of cloth nappies. It’s a good time to start using cloth on your baby. No matter what cloth nappy style you go with you are helping the overfull landfills, providing a healthier option for your baby.
