Why Switch to Reusable Nappies

Over a 2.5 year period, a baby will have gone through at least 4,000 nappy changes. The majority of these nappies will be single-use and thrown away to be incinerated. Parents switch to reusable nappies for three main reasons:

Better for Baby

Breathable soft natural fabrics, which are comfortable and gentle on your baby’s skin.

Reduce Waste

By using just one reusable nappy a day instead of a disposable nappy, you will save 912 disposable nappies from incineration.

Save Money

Using reusable nappies full time over 2.5 years can save you on average £488. Further savings can be made if the same nappies are used on a second child.
