Nappies


Disposable nappies

Disposable nappies can’t be recycled and should be put into your rubbish bin, as they contaminate recycling.

Cloth nappies

There are many reasons to use cloth nappies (also known as real nappies):

  • Babies that use cloth nappies are often potty-trained earlier than others, and there’s no greater risk of nappy rash.
  • Overall you’re likely to spend less than you would on disposable nappies – and if you have another child, it won’t cost you any more.
  • Using them could halve your household waste.
  • They are simple to use and can be used with liners that are washable or flush away.
