Monique Barker
Best way to get introduced to cloth nappies

So grateful for the support received from Kam prior, during and after using the newborn hire kit. It's great to receive the various brand sand options so you can trial and see what works best for you. Also all the accessories are super useful, and you have the option of purchasing them once the hire has concluded which is handy.

Hayley McKenzie
Highly recommend the newborn nappy hire kit

I cannot recommend the Nappy Guru/Newborn hire kit enough. The kit comes with everything you need to get started - including a custom wash routine from Kam.

Having everything on hand made the process of getting started less daunting than I originally thought. It is clear that Kam is passionate about cloth nappies and the babies and families who use her high quality and personalised service!
