Modern cloth nappies are easy to use, save you a fortune and are better for your baby and the environment.
A modern washable nappy system consists of an absorbent part (the nappy) and a waterproof part (the nappy wrap or cover).
There are lots of types of nappies and you can find out more about the different styles at www.naturalnursery.co.uk
My Baby’s Health
Disposable nappies contain over 200 chemicals, some of which are believed to cause cancers or hormonal changes.
Cloth nappies are made from soft or natural fabrics to feel lovely on the skin and have the following health benefits:
They have better air circulation than disposables, meaning your baby is kept cooler and fresher and latest research shows lowered sperm counts may be due to raised scrotal temperatures in disposables
Many parents report a reduction in nappy rash and eczema when they make the switch to cloth
Babies in cloth nappies adopt the “frog” position which offers better posture support and can help hips develop properly
A full set of cloth nappies, including home laundry, will cost from £200 to £500, against a total bill of around £1500 to £2000 for disposable nappies.
This could give you a saving of around £12 PER WEEK if you use cloth nappies and reusable wipes.
You may also qualify for a nappy incentive from your local council; you can find out more on our website at
