Have you bought or received nappies that have slack elastics? Do you have nappies that have broken snaps or velcro that's lost it's stick or coming away from the seam?  Do you want to make sure second hand nappies are safe for your baby?

Let us help. Here at The Nappy Guru HQ we've Stripped & Sanitised and fixed over 2000 nappies!


Brands we have fixed elastic successfully include:

  • Hippybottomus
  • Alva Baby
  • Happy Flute
  • Mama Koala
  • Pea Pods
  • My Little Gumnut
  • Baby Beehinds
  • Baby Bare Cubs and Teddies,
  • Bubblebubs Candies
  • Bambino Mio,
  • Tots Bots
  • Bambooty
  • Designer Bums
  • GroVia 
  • Little Aussie Monster
  • Econaps
  • Crackadaks
We also do brands that have "Rolled Elastic" like older Baby Beehinds nappies, Working at Home Maker (WAHM) nappies, night nappies and fitted nappies.  These will be slightly altered as a channel will be sewn on to feed the new elastics through and will now have "encased elastics" - see difference in photos. 
We do not do elastic repairs on brands that have elastic sewn onto the leg seams eg on Covers like Alcmena, Seedling Baby, Close Pop Ins, Baby Bare Honey Pot Covers, Peekaboo, Bare and Boho, Big W Big Softies, Minnie and Mae ie we cannot do 3D double gussets but internal double gussets are fine. 

If your nappy brand is not listed above or if you are not sure if we can do it - that's ok - just contact us before placing order with some photos!
We have a great variety of KAM snap colours to match the snaps that require fixing. We cannot repair snaps found in Grovia Nappies or Kmart Anko brand nappies. 
We fix velcro that are losing grip or just coming away from seams.  We can do complete velcro replacement.
We can Strip and Sanitise any smelly discoloured or second hand nappies as per the method prescribed on (The bible in cloth nappy care)! This will ensure your nappies are safe for your baby by resetting them for a fresh start. 
This will involve a long soak using stain remover + Detergent (Strip)  and bleach or high temperature wash (Sanitisation) to kill microbes.  A S&S will ensure all your nappies are safe for your baby and they will be ready to wear when you receive them.  
What you need to do: 
  • Choose the type of repair required or Strip & Sanitise (S&S) option.
  • Choose the number of nappies that require the type of repair under quantity.  (For S&S the  Qty = 1 for upto 5kgs of nappies and inserts. For 5-10 kgs  - choose 2 in Qty and so on). 
  • Place Order and Pay
  • Wait to be contacted with the address to send the nappies to 
  • Send the nappies to us at the address provided in Mt Nasura WA 6112 with a self addressed satchel or label to return the fixed nappies. 
How long does it take? 
Usual turnaround for nappy fixes and S&S is around  2 weeks from receipt but will depend on the quantity sent and how many people require this service ahead of you. Elastic repairs take 30mins -1 Hour per nappy  to complete and we can do about 5-8 nappies/day and all by hand with love and care.  Nappy repairs are done in a first come first serve basis - so you will be placed in a queue.
What if I am not completely happy?
If you are unhappy with the repairs, you can let us know by email with pictures. We will work together to come up with a solution or you will be offered a refund or store credit. There are no warranties given with nappy repairs however you can be assured that we are experts in the field and only use material bought here in Australia from reputable companies.  If your nappy is under warranty - contact the company you bought from first as nappy repairs can void their warranty. 

Who is doing the repairs and S&S?
Elastics and Velcro Repairs are done by my mother (Sriyani) while I (Kam)  do the snap replacements and S&S service. Our mission is to ensure nappies have a long life and keep them out of landfill  as long as we possibly can. As advocates for circular economy, we want to encourage re-use so we have decided to keep the price as reasonable as possible to enable more people to get into cloth nappies!

Thanks very much for your really great repair of my elastics, and for the rapid return. Highly recommended!

Excellent work

This is the second time I’ve used the nappy guru to fix my nappies and have been very happy with the results both times. My nappies have a new lease on life. Definitely recommend 👏🏼👏🏼

Amazing work

I can’t thank you guys enough for the service you provide! I’ll be sending more nappy repairs your way when I have them. Thanks for replacing the elastic in my nappy shells-professional job and good as new. Fair price and very quick turnaround! Thanks again for helping cloth mamas keep their nappies in circulation as long as possible.

Highly recommend for BBH elastic replacement

I was given Kam’s details by Baby Beehinds as ‘the only lady they know who is amazing’ at replacing elastics.
I sent our nappies to Kam and her mum and was so happy with the end result.
Fast, easy and affordable process.
I highly recommend!
