About Australian Cloth Nappy Rental

Changing the world one cloth nappy at a time…

Laura: Our friendship started all the way back in Year 7 (2001) at Loreto College, Ballarat. We both followed a similar path when school ended– I studied Nursing/Midwifery and Katharine did Nursing/Arts. We have given speeches at each other’s 21st’s, been each other’s Bridesmaids, and I was even the unofficial doula when Katharine gave birth to her first daughter Adeline in 2019!

Katharine: We are quite similar in our approach to many things in life, and trying to be more environmentally conscious is definitely a value we share. When I was pregnant, Laura asked me if I was going to use cloth nappies. I was definitely interested, but I also had no idea where to start!

Laura: Katharine did end up using them with Adeline, and then I also used them when my son Billy was born in August 2019. We had actually planned to share nappies as our babies were 7 months apart – but that didn’t really work out as Billy grew very quickly and they were soon the same size!

 Katharine: When COVID started to really impact Australia in March 2020 and toilet paper and baby formula were suddenly selling out, I thought that nappies may go the same way. So one day I messaged Laura and asked “Do you want to start a cloth nappy rental business?” We had already helped several other friends and family members get started too, so we know first-hand that with so many different brands and styles available the whole experience can be pretty overwhelming.

Laura: From that point there was back and forth, research and planning. At one point we decided ‘maybe this is all just too hard’, but the next day I just started posting on our Instagram page with the attitude of ‘Let’s just give it a try!’. That was in September 2020, and since then we have had steady interest from clients who are keen to give hiring reusable cloth nappies a go. We know we’re not going to take over the business world any time soon, but if we can keep a few disposable nappies out of landfill, for us that makes it all worthwhile.

Katharine: People don’t know that on average a child will use approximately 6,000 nappies before they are toilet trained, but families can use just 30 reusable nappies for the same purpose!

About Australian Cloth Nappy Rental

Australian Cloth Nappy Rental entrepeneurs and business owners Katherine Brenna and Laura McConville.

We are passionate about educating and empowering the next generation of Australian parents to get started, or make the switch, to using cloth nappies.

Many people may not know that disposable nappies can take up to 500 years to break down, and make up ~4% of our landfill. We think if our parents and grandparents used cloth nappies for all those years, so can we!

We both started using cloth with our first babies in 2019, sharing both nappies and tips along the way. We also helped several other friends and family members get started too, so we know first-hand that with so many different brands and styles available the whole experience can be pretty overwhelming.

That’s why we are here to support you throughout the hire period 24/7 – answering any questions you may have!
