Real nappies

Many people still believe that the only alternative to disposable nappies are the old fashioned terry nappies - nothing could be further from the truth.

Modern reusable or real nappies:

  • are easy to use
  • come in a variety of shapes and forms
  • are made of natural fabrics
  • have flushable liners to catch any solid waste
  • fasten with velcro/aplix, poppers or use simple folds
  • can be washed on a 60 degrees cycle
  • can save parents up to £500 on the first baby alone. This takes into account the costs used for electricity, washing powder and drying
  • ...and of course, they are better for the environment
