Reusable nappies

What is a reusable nappy?

Reusable nappies, also known as real nappies are made out of cotton and other materials which can be washed and reused. They are easy to use and very similar to disposables, plus they come in exciting patterns, fabrics and colours!

Why choose real nappies?

There are lots of benefits to using real nappies:

  • kinder to baby - there are no chemicals or oils involved, just the natural absorbency of the material
  • money saving - by using real nappies you can save up to £500 per child compared to constantly buying disposables
  • good for the environment - a baby will go through approximately 5,000 nappy changes before they are potty trained - if using disposables, that’s 5,000 nappies sent to landfill.
