This ensures that all the information and support needed to successfully transition to using cloth nappies is provided. You must apply for the rebate through your respective local council.

Types of nappies eligible for the rebate 

You can purchase modern cloth nappies through an Australian supplier (with an ABN). This includes all-in-ones, two-in-ones, swim nappies, terry/pre-fold nappies, and nappy liners, boosters, covers and inserts.

A hire option is also available from The Nappy Guru, which provides an opportunity to trial different brands, newborn options or night nappies before committing.

Only modern cloth nappies will be considered for this rebate. Accessories, for example wipes and wet bags, are not included. Postage costs are also not included.

If ineligible items are on the receipt along with eligible items, the rebate will only be applied to the eligible items rather than the total amount.

Please note that cloth nappies have to be purchased/hired after attending an eligible workshop. Any cloth nappies that have been purchased prior to attending a workshop are not eligible for the rebate.
