What To Consider When Buying Nappies

Disposable Or Reusable?

Deciding whether to use single-use nappies or reusable nappies is your first decision.

Disposable nappies are known to add to our landfill problem so are not the most eco-friendly option, but there are biodegradable nappies available, which although more expensive can be kinder to baby’s skin and the environment too.

Reusable nappies are pretty stylish these days and are machine-washable, which makes them a good alternative, although they can still have an environmental impact due to the energy used whilst washing.

The Fit

A nappy which fits correctly should prevent any leaks around the legs or waist.

It’s important to use the right size for your baby, so if you find the nappies are leaking you may want to opt for a different size or switch brands.

Some nappies are designed to hold more moisture than others and are good for use overnight or on long journeys. Look for the ones that are labelled as extra or ultra-dry.

Absorbency

Regular disposable nappies depend to have the best moisture locking properties, keeping wetness away from baby’s bottom.

Biodegradable nappies tend not to be as moisture-wicking, so will need more regular changes and reusable nappies will need to be kept on top of to prevent nappy rash.

Nappies FAQs

How Often Should You Change A Newborn Baby?

You’ll know your baby best but try changing them after every feed, and straight after they’ve done a poo.

Once baby can sleep through the night, nappies should last 12 hours.

How Many Times Can You Use Reusable Nappies?

You will need 15-20 nappies if you plan to use reusable nappies all the time.
