PLEASE NOTE - According to Google we have a physical store in Kew, VIC.  This is no longer the case and was operated by the previous owners of Cotton Bottom.  We are working to get this error rectified but are happy to field any queries via email or phone should you wish to discuss the ins and outs of cloth nappying with us.


End of Financial Year SALE - Cloth Nappies, Swim Nappies, gifts and more28-Jun-2016

Cotton Bottom is offering 15% off in stock items (excluding GroVia products) with a minimum spend of $20 until midnight Sunday 3rd July as an End of Financial Year Sale and to make way for some new products that we are hoping to stock very soon.  This is a great time to stock up, grab a gift or two (we have some Sinchies and aden+anais products that are already reduced and you can add an extra 15% off if you use the discount code) or try out a few of those brands that you've always wanted to try.  Use the code EOFY15 in the discount box at checkout.  Please note that if a product is already reduced you will see the reduction on the menu page but sometimes the discounts do not show up on specific items under that heading.  This is a glitch we are trying to fix but in the meantime if you add a product to the cart the correct (reduced) price should be visible. Apologies for the confusion.

Product Review - GroVia Hybrid02-Aug-2013

The GroVia Hybrid is a versatile All-In-Two nappy.  It is a one-size nappy system (will fit most babies from 3.6kg - 16kg) and is available with either hook and loop or snap fastening.  It is designed so that the outer shell may be used for multiple nappy changes. You purchase the shell and the soaker pads separately (or can be used with disposable inserts (BioSoakers) or prefolds).  A unique feature of the GroVia is the soaker pad which snaps in so that it won’t move around.  It is made out of thick, soft, cotton jersey and it’s organic.  When wet you can simply replace the soaker pad but if the shell gets wet, allow to air dry and use for the next nappy change.  If your GroVia Shell is soiled or very saturated, start fresh with a new GroVia Shell.  These nappies are also super cute! There are a range of great colours and patterns available.

Pros: well constructed, quality materials (and soaker pads are organic), easy to use, can use with various inserts, quite trim, snaps or Velcro, very cute!

Cons: initial cost, line dry only for the covers.
