Reusable Cloth Nappies for eco-conscious families. Australian owned, designed and operated from our head quarters 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.

All of our reusable products feature high quality fabrics and materials which have been ethically sourced and made. We have been working alongside Australian and New Zealand 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.

Our Nappies

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 fleece 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 complete nappy every 2-3 changes however if baby does a poo prior to this, the complete 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 (newborn to toilet training).


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.

Amazing prints, reason why I started cloth.

love how well these wash and dry. Nice big pocket. The nappies are quite big and bulky when stuffed with MLG inserts. Easy enough to make slimmer by popping other brands inserts in them instead. can be a big difficult to get a snug fit around chubby legs. Could do with a double gusset to help reduce leaks. The inner bamboo fleece liner is great and soft on bubbys skin and they always feel dry when taking off a dirty nappy even when the insets in the pockets are soaked.

Love them

I initially bought a trial pack but had to buy more because these nappies are the best. They dry fast after washing, no stains when drying in the sun, always leave Bub feeling dry, beautiful soft PUL means that baby can move easily in them(some other brands tend to cut into the tummy when bub is sitting) and they aren’t too expensive. I’ve had a few leaks when using them as a pocket nappy but I just lay the inert inside the cover and have had no issues - and then I can reuse the covers. Lastly my Bub has terrible nappy rash with disposables so these are a godsend.

I always wanted to use cloth for environmental reasons, but thought it would be tricky, but these MCNs are easy to use, are affordable and I love their great prints.
