The Nappy Lady Is The UK's Leading Reusable Nappy Expert

Reusable nappies are also known as cloth nappies, washable nappies, modern cloth nappies, real nappies, cotton nappies, cloth diapers, cotton terry squares, terry nappies, terry squares but in the end they all mean the same thing - reusable nappies are soft fabric nappies that are washed and reused and not thrown away as disposable nappies are. The world of reusable nappies are completely different to what older generations remember and thankfully no more plastic pants, reusable nappies are onto the next generation now, get started today with convenient reusable nappies.

We have reusable nappies for everyone. Parents often worry that their baby will get nappy rash due to cloth nappies but modern reusable nappies are free from nasties, super absorbent to keep your baby's skin free from nappy rash.

Did you know that a disposable nappy takes more than 500 years to biodegrade. This means if Henry VIII had been wearing disposable nappies we could dig them up and examine them today! Should they really be called disposables.... more like be around forever!

Even if you don't use reusable nappies full time every single eco friendly cloth nappy you use is saving a disposable nappy from landfill, reducing your family's carbon footprint and saving the earth's resources. Leaving a healthier planet for your baby. It doesn't matter if you're on your first child or your fifth child every reusable nappy used saves waste and the environment. Reusing reusable nappies is better than refuse! Not all nappies are rubbish! In landfills, they languish for over 500 years, emitting harmful methane. Embrace modern reusable nappies, which use only 2% of raw materials and generate a mere 1% of waste compared to single-use disposables, and be a part of the eco-solution. Reusable Nappies are the nappies the future generation needs us to use now! Leave a healthier planet for your baby.

Once your child is potty trained (around approx 2 year old to 3 year old) you can store your reusable nappies for a second child or passed on so they can be used in the future for more than one child, you definitely cant do that with disposables.

Reusable nappies come in different styles & nappy type

The most reliable offering excellent containment are fitted nappies (sometimes called shaped nappies, two part nappies or two parters) with a separate waterproof nappy cover. A Night time nappy such as Tots Bots is normally a fitted nappy however they are super absorbent nappies for the longer wear time, no need to use a disposable overnight. Nighttime nappies need room for additional boosters so having a separate wrap over the fitted nappy provides this space. For ease of use, a quick nappy change and ultimate convenience then all in one nappies and pocket nappies are very popular and quick to change as they have a built in reusable liner layer and a variety of inserts. A pocket nappy is popular for childcare and fits birth to potty. We even sell pocket nappies sold without inserts so you can give new life to old inserts.

There are also flat nappies which are folded into a shape or flat nappy inserts that you fold and stuff into pocket nappy or nappy wrap. If you are on a budget or need practical quick drying reusable nappies these are excellent. The most traditional flat nappies are Terry Squares which are made of a material like bathroom towels. well known brands are Briht Bots.  Muslins squares are especially great flat nappies for a newborn. Muslins can be folded incredibly tiny for the smallest of newborn to chunky ones. Flat nappies such as terry squares are excellent economical night time nappies. Cotton terry squares are the original reusable nappies. You may also have heard of prefolds which were first made large scale by Bambino Mio. Prefolds make great pocket nappy inserts.

We mustn't forget all in twos which are a kind of hybrid nappy system between fitted nappies and all in one nappies. All reusable nappies need nappy liners and many styles are suitable as night time nappies even a very heavy wetter. Reusables come in options of poppers sometimes called snaps, Velcro fastening or fasten free where you use a Nappi Nippa.

Range of cloth nappy designs

Reusable nappies are not only super absorbent nappies but come in a range of different designs of eco friendly beautiful prints, patterns and colours. Match your reusables to your outfit just as Rihanna did with her baby on the cover of Vogue. The nappy.lady is the home of the iconic Prism and lovely Pop Pop nappy prints by Motherease. If you prefer the traditional look reusable nappies are available in beautiful clean bright white too.

Modern Cloth Nappy Fabrics

Modern reusable nappies come in a variety of fabrics cotton is the traditional cost effective terry towel nappy materials that is highly absorbent and washes well.

Now washable nappies also come in soft bamboo, hemp or microfibre. Microfibre is a man made material,it's super quick drying and stays super soft even in hard water areas however it is the most bulky materials. The super soft Teddy nappy is our best selling microfibre option. In hard water areas nappy fabric can be kept soft by occassionally fluffing it in a tumble drier on a short cycle. For night time nappies super absorbent hemp or bamboo is incredibly popular and widely regarded as the best fabric for night use nappies. both are used in our excellent Nox night time nappies.

Fleece liners are excellent for keeping baby feel dry in cloth diapers.

What are the parts of a reusable nappy system?

Many parents worry that there are too many parts to a reusable nappy system but once you break it down it's not as confusing.

There is the outer layer which is a waterproof cover or called an outer wrap or nappy wrap. It is there to keep baby's clothes dry and covered from the reusable nappies used underneath. The wrap will be made of breathable PUL a waterproof wrap material or wool wraps. Wraps come in different designs including cute prints, colours or beautiful white. A two part nappy (wrap and separate nappy) is the best system against leaks. For generations customers who sworn by a two part system or double layer nappy system to keep poonami and leaks at bay.

The nappy (or insert) which provides the nappy absorbency to contain the wee and poo. These fastened in either poppers, Velcro or Nappi Nippa fastening. Popper fastening tend to be the most popular. It needs to be covered by a waterproof layer. Without baby wearing a waterproof layer your nappy would leak.

Add boosters for night use. Simply popping a booster in gives you higher absorbency and a longer wear time. Nothing fiddly at all.

Finally the inner layer are nappy liners which is there to make getting rid of poo easier and keep baby's skin dry. This can be either a liner you reuse also called a fleece washable / reusable liner or disposable liner - whatever suits your family best. If you use a pocket nappy a fleece liner layer will automatically be built in, this is one reason a pocket nappy is popular for nursery. Our most popular disposable liners are the Bambinex paper liners, they tear off a roll easily and can dispose of them in a bin, do not flush. Another benefit of using a liner is that they protect the nappy fabric from any moisturisers or barrier creams that you might be using on baby's bum.

An optional item is a nappy booster which add extra nappy absorbency. Add booster into your your night time nappies making a super absorbent combination for your night nappies. Night nappies are often made of hemp or bamboo.

Why don't you consider adding in cloth wipes as well. Reusable wipes are cheaper and quicker at cleaning baby. Using reusable baby wipes will save you so much money they'll almost pay for your cloth nappies.Reusable wipes can be washed with your nappies creating no extra work.

One size or sized reusable nappies?

Reusable nappies come in different sizes or one size, there are pros and cons to both. The most popular are one size nappies which are sometimes called birth to potty nappies or birth to toddler nappies. One size nappies are the most economical as they see you through from smaller babies to potty training.

The other option are sized nappies or newborns. A sized nappy comes in a variety of sizes as baby grows. Sized give the best perfect fit for newborn baby nappies and we stock an extensive range of newborn nappies for your little one. At the other end of the scale we also stock large sized modern reusable nappies and nappy pants for toddlers and older children. We also offer adult terry nappies and plastic pants for older people.

Washing cloth nappies is easy

Washing reusable nappies is very simple you don't have to be reusable nappy experts to wash them. Simply knock solids into the toilet and store dirty nappies in a nappy bucket or wet bag. Wet bags come in many sizes.  For a nappy change while out and about have a small wet bag for storage to keep in your change bag. On wash day take your cloth nappies,cloth wipes and wet bags to the washing machine, you could bulk out with additional items like bibs what need a thorough wash. Put your nappies on a rinse cycle, wash with detergent washing powder on a long cotton was no higher than 60deg, no fabric softener and then for drying nappies ideally hang to dry. If you have limited drying facilities don't worry we have a range of quick drying nappies.

Save money and air dry your reusable nappies rather than tumble drying. Line drying nappies doesn't only save money it is also much better for the long term condition of reusable nappies material, line dry nappies are less prone to excess shrinkage and balding. A night time system does normally take longer to dry than day time reusable nappies as they have higher overall absorbency. In winter expect nappies to take longer to dry but do not dry directly on a radiator as this can damage fabric. Always read the care instructions when you first receive your nappies just in case the nappy had any specific requirements. Using an energy efficient washing machine to wash your reusables will make your washing costs cheaper and be even more environmentally friendly.
