Reusable Cloth Nappies for eco-conscious families. Australian owned, designed and operated from our headquarters in Townsville, QLD.
Our Cloth Nappies have been designed and created with simplicity but effectiveness in mind. Parents have been using cloth nappies for centuries; the wearing and washing process of reusable nappies does not need to be over complicated and our nappies reflect this. Simple to use, simple to wash - because we know that things that are complicated generally don't lead to long lasting change.
All of our reusable products feature high quality fabrics and materials which have been ethically sourced and made. We have been working alongside Australian artists for many years, to bring you beautifully crafted and unique designs.
Our Cloth Nappies are environmentally friendly, cost effective and easy to use, all while providing efficiency for you and comfort for your baby.
We are passionate about creating a range of reusable products for you and your baby which support your busy lifestyle and sustainability values.
My Little Gumnut Cloth Nappies have be specifically designed for comfort, ease of use and effectiveness. Our nappies have 2 components – a soft, breathable and water-resistant outer layer (“the shell”) and a super thirsty insert.
Our Reusable Cloth Nappy shells are made with an ultrasoft water-resistant material on the outside and feature a pocket made with 100% bamboo fleece on the inside. The bamboo layer will sit against your babies skin, keeping them dry and comfortable.
Our Cloth Nappy inserts are made with 2 layers of 100% bamboo on the outside and are filled with 3 layers of ultra thirsty microfiber on the inside.
Putting it all together, the insert will slide into the pocket of the shell, to create the perfect cloth nappy system for your little one.
As the insert is the absorbency part of the nappy, it has been specifically designed to quickly wick away any moisture (wee), leaving your babies skin feeling dry. By sliding the insert into the pocket of the shell, you are creating a barrier (the bamboo fleece layer) between babies skin and the insert. The bamboo fleece does not absorb the wee, rather it allows it to pass through and be absorbed into the insert.
Having this layer of protection between the insert and babies skin, allows for the insert to be changed without having to change the complete nappy (please note, we recommend changing the entire nappy every 2-3 changes however if baby does a poo, the entire nappy will need to be changed).
Our stay dry nappy design leaves your babies skin feeling dry which will decrease the likelihood of your little one developing any sort of nappy rash.
At My Little Gumnut we are eco-conscious and aim to reduce our carbon footprint wherever possible. Which is why our cloth nappies are adjustable to grow with your baby. Our reusable nappies are suitable for weight ranges 3-18kg.
Our Cloth Nappies come complete and ready to use, however you may wish to add a liner to assist with clean up. Our bamboo liners are specifically designed to catch the solids and make the clean-up process easier and quicker for you.
We have created 2 designs of liners to suit your specific needs. Our Bio-Liners are designed as a single-use liner. After use, simply dispose of the solids into the toilet then dispose of the liner into the bin or compost. Our Reusable Bamboo Liners are designed to be used over and over again. After use, simply dispose of the solids into the toilet, rinse the liner under the tap and wash with your reusable nappies.

Great because they dry so fast. I use these alongside some other brands which take much longer to dry. Living in Melbourne it’s hard to line dry in the winter these Usually dry inside with the heating on in 6 hours if near a heater. I change my bubs nappies every 2 hourly during the day (she is prone to nappy rash) I rarely get any leaks, if I do it’s usually because I haven’t fitted it correctly. I haven’t used these overnight yet but I’m sure with a double insert it would last from 10.30pm- 6.30pm.
By far my favourite cloth nappies and I have tried them all! So beautiful, so affordable, comfy (my toddlers faves) and they are quick drying which is so important when you are full time cloth.
For our baby My Little Gumnut nappies with the one insert is not sufficient for our 10 month old baby. We have had to add in a booster which makes it very bulky. I love the nappies though, so easy to use and other friends have said they work perfectly for their babies, we just have a strong wetter I believe.
New to MCN I was a bit daunted but found the website and videos so helpful and user friendly. I decided to purchase a few to give reusable a go and absolutely love the my little gumnut nappies. So easy to use. No leaks. Soft on bubbas skin. I have since purchased more and am slowly fazing out disposals. Thanks Jess for all your help and great customer service.
Fantastic. They fit perfectly, no leakages and they dry quickly! Plus they look so gorgeous on!
Totally in love. My new favourite MCN brand for sure!
Beautiful designs, excellent quality
This was my second order of nappies, just a few more to top up the stash and i couldn’t resist the new patterns! These nappies are excellent so easy to use and they even control explosions, definitely should be on everyones baby list! Great for the environment and the pocket!
I’m really happy with my daughters new nappies, I’m so glad I made the change to go MCN! They are easy to use and easy to clean! So far no leaks and they work well. I will definitely be purchasing more without hesitation. Love them!
