Why Chose Real Nappies?

Kind to your baby - Like babies, modern washable nappies come in many shapes and styles. Designed to be comfortable and secure, it is easy to find the ideal nappy for your baby. You even get to choose how you wash them, just like baby’s clothes.

Kind to your wallet - Using real nappies over disposables will save you up to £500, considerably more if you use the same nappies on subsequent children.
  • On average a baby will use around 5,000 nappies (based on an average use of 50 nappies per week for a newborn and 35 per week for an older baby – this calculation is based on a 2 ½ year period)
  • For a 2 ½ year period disposable nappies will cost around £800 plus the cost of disposal wipes at £250
  • There are additional costs associated with the disposal (usually landfill) of disposable nappies which is paid for through council taxes.

Kind to you - It has never been simpler to use real nappies. Today’s options have no pins – most use poppers or velcro and come in a wide variety of colours and patterns to coordinate with your baby’s clothes!

Kind to your environment – Using real nappies instead of disposables you will halve your weekly rubbish and your carbon footprint could be up to 40% smaller! This means less rubbish filling up our landfill sites and a kinder option for our planet.
