Pick-up Cloth Nappy Loan Kits
Would you like to try cloth nappies before you buy? Receive a kit with a mix of styles and brands to help you get a feel for cloth nappies. We have a number of loan kits around the country that you can pick up in person from a CNLI Volunteer.
We have a newborn kit (6-10lbs) in Co Wicklow. All other kits are for babies 10lbs and up and cost €20 for three weeks. Below is a list of locations. If you don’t find a location near you, we have postal kits available too. If any loan says ‘currently booked out’, click on the calendar and click through the months to find the next available dates (in green).
Frequently Asked Questions
For a newborn loan kit, we recommend booking the loan kit to arrive a week before your due date. This will give you time to have a look through it and see whats what and ask any questions before your little one arrives.
For a One Size kit for a bigger baby, book it at a time thats convient for you – there may be some trial and error at the start as you try the different brands and styles to find what works best for your baby.
If your baby arrives early and you already have your cloth nappy loan booked – you can email us and we are happy to change your dates to bring it forward or delay it.
We can extend your loan period if you would like a few extra weeks to give them a try. (Provided the loan kit has not been booked by another family for the same dates)
Yes!! We have a fabulous community of cloth nappy parents who will be happy to help you. You can reach out with any questions or share any “fit check” pictures with our Whats App Support Group or our Facebook Chat Group.
We host a monthly virtual online Workshop where one of our Volunteers will demonstrate different types of nappies and answer questions – we highly recommend joining one before or during your cloth nappy loan. See the latest Workshop dates here
Yes – all our cloth nappy loan kits are kept in immaculate condition. They are rewashed by one of our cloth nappy volunteers in-between each loan so you will recieve a loan kit which is clean and ready to use.
If something gets damaged or misplaced please be sure to let us know – we aim to keep our loan kits of a high standard. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can arrange to remedy the damaged item.
If you have a local pick up loan, you can arrange to return it to the local volunteer at a time and location agreed between you that suits.
If you have a postal loan, you will get a return postal label with your cloth kit. When you are finished, add your return label and bring it to your local post office.
If you have misplaced your return label there is a €5 charge for a replacement. Please email email@example.com and we will organise a new label to be posted to you.
Longterm loan kit labels (6 months) will be posted towards the end of your loan period.
