Over a 2.5 year period, a baby will have gone through approx 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:

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

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

In the long term, parents can make savings of around £600. More if the nappies are used on a second child. Reusable nappies come in three main types: All-in-One, Shaped and Flat. Modern designs make using, washing and drying easy.
