I first came into Nest when I was having problems with the original brand of nappies I bought. Nikki spent over an hour with me offering solutions and phoned Elizabeth for some advice too. I’m still overawed that you took so much effort to help solve a problem with a brand of nappies you not only didn’t sell me but you don’t actually stock! I think that’s pretty outstanding customer service. To have somewhere which is not only a beautiful shop, staffed by wonderful people selling fantastic products in an ethical way but also a place for mums to link up is a truly wonderful thing in my opinion. I cannot sing your praises highly enough.

Your whole approach is so different to the usual shopping experience with kids – with the amazing outside play area, I never feel the need to chase or supervise when I’m shopping at Nest. And you’ve held my baby on more than one occasion so I can attend to my toddler or work out how different nappies fit together – it’s such a relief! The shop is beautiful and was not at all what I expected when first came to visit.
I look forward to visiting again soon.

When I first arrived in Brisbane, pregnant with our third child, I went to Nest looking to update my cloth nappy stash. The store had opened only a few weeks before and despite a few empty spaces on the shelves, I could see the potential was there for an amazing range of tried and tested nappies – not just the same mainstream brands you see all the time. It was obvious a great deal of time and been spent selecting products that would appeal to all sectors of the cloth nappy market but most importantly those just starting out on their cloth nappy journey. I was impressed that Elizabeth genuinely sought out my opinions and feedback on what had and hadn’t worked for us in the past, in order to better serve her other customers.

Just wanted to thank you for great nappies, in general! Thought I’d put a disposable on Elodie today to see if it changed her odd crawling style (it didn’t), and within 15 minutes the ridiculous thing had practically fallen off. Back to the old reliable puffy fluffy bum! It just made me appreciate them even more and I wanted to say thanks!

On my first visit to Nest Nappies, I was greeted by a lovely lady who took her time in showing me (a first-time mother who had never used cloth nappies before) over 6 different nappies. I made my purchase and will definitely be going back! I’m just waiting for my online order to come through too! So excited!

I was adamant about using cloth but had no idea how to start. I was so thankful to have spotted Nest at a baby expo. My husband and I attended a free nappy workshop. He was the only bloke there! We were encouraged to try a few option and we’ve been a regular customer since. My favorite are the Grovia range. We feel good about using cloth and even use your washable wipes. No nappy rash! Bub’s bits are all the better for cloth too. And laundry is one of my preferred chores (much better than ironing). I recommend your store to all expecting parents. Thanks Nest.

I had grown a conscience after having my first baby; I wanted to do my part to make sure she had a beautiful world to live in, so I started researching cloth nappies for my second cherub. To say the least I was overwhelmed and even a little bit frightened about all the options and products I was presented with. So I went looking for somewhere I could get hands on advice; MCN are an investment and I wasn’t going to spend a small fortune (single income) only to bail out because I didn’t have what suited me. Lo & behold my search lead me to Nest Nappies, conveniently located in my home town. After meeting Elizabeth and getting all the help I needed (& continuing each time I come instore) I am a very (very) happy cloth nappy convert! Thank you Nest Nappies!

I have NEVER had any inclination to use cloth nappies as; 1) I was a working mother (who wants to come from work and wash nappies?) 2) Disposables were so easy…3) “we couldn’t afford cloth”……LITTLE DID I KNOW!! I have used cloth with my 2nd baby – and LOVE them!. I do obscene amounts of washing anyway, so washing them is no drama, they’ve paid for themselves in 3 months and my husband and I both find them easier to put on than a disposable! The worst part about using them is coordinating Carter’s outfits for the day as I love every nappy I have, but not all tops go with all bottoms….  Well done you two – you’ve got a great business there!!!!

Dear Elizabeth I just wanted to say Thank You. My husband and I attended your Nappy Workshop on Thursday night. I must admit I was a little worried my husband would find it a waste of time. However he showed great interest and surprised me by even getting “hands on” and trying some nappy folds!

The whole night was perfect – we felt relaxed, we didn’t feel like we were been given the “hard sell”, we didn’t feel like we been judged for asking (what we thought were) dumb questions PLUS the pizza was an added bonus!

We left feeling invigorated and immensely satisfied with the information we received.  Yes I was a little overwhelmed by the sheer variety of cloth nappies available, but once we got talking to you, and about what we already had in our stash I felt loads better.  You explained that all we needed to do was find something that could work with what we already had (Cheeky Butts Newborns and Cheeky Butts AI2/Pockets) – you gave us the options in simple terms and let us make the decisions ourselves. I cannot sing your praises enough.  Also Erin who was very helpful when I first came in and was very patient and extremely informative.

We love that you don’t push a particular brand and mostly we love your open and honest attitude about basically anything

Hi Vashti! Thanks a lot again for all your help:)  Today we put the new BubbleBubs nappy on Lara (washed ones) and she spent almost 5 and a half hours in it, no leaks and more importantly she had a day nap for almost 2hours in it!!! Amazing!

Thank you so much to Vashti and your lovely and helpful new assistant.  You really took the stress out of buying cloth nappies for us and couldn’t have been more helpful!  Thanks for spending so much time with us.  I can’t wait to see our little girl in them come November and will be back for a visit and to let you have cuddles for sure!

Just a quick msg to let you know how much I enjoyed the workshop on Sat with Heidi.  Her customer service, advice, passion/knowledge & humour are an asset to your business.

I’m due in mid June & am now set up for 1 1/2 days worth of gear with trusted, highly recommended/excellent reviewed products, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to use. With a little bit more to come to complete/meet my remaining needs.

I also purchased 2 ‘Australiana’ limited edition nappies for down the track as they are too cute to pass up.

Looking forward to popping in when on Mat leave to finish ‘nesting’ my nursery.

I have purchased many cloth nappies from Nest over the past 6 years, before the birth of my first child.

My youngest has just finished toilet training and I’d like to thank you all at Nest Nappies for always being such a wonderful beacon of information and advice over the years.
