In just one year, a baby will go through approximately 2000 disposable nappies! 2000! Some estimate the number to be much higher too! Each of those ‘disposable’ nappies will then take up to 500 years to decompose! Leaving a legacy for your children’s grandchildren. Not only do the litter the environment, the making of disposable nappier uses 3.5 times more energy, 8.3 times more non-renewable resources, and 90 times more renewable resources than reusable nappies!
Enter- Real, reusable nappies
Choosing to use reusable nappies on your little bundle of joy will be one of the best zero waste decisions you make. Not only far better for the planet helping stop thousands of nappies enter landfill each year, it works our far cheaper too! Plus, I think they look way cuter on that plastic disposable ones. Look at those patterns!
These beautiful reusable nappies from Baba & Boo are called pocket nappies. There’s a pocket at the back of the waterproof nappy, where you put the absorbent inserts. Each nappy comes with two bamboo mix inserts.
Using the Inserts:
When your baby is teeny tiny, you will normally only need to use one insert, which should last up to four hours. Once your baby starts to grow (which is always too quick!) and you find the nappy is not lasting as long, it’s time to add the other insert.
If you want you can use a liner. This sits between the nappy and baby’s bottom to catch any solid poo and keep wetness away from baby’s skin. Liners aren’t essential (especially for exclusively breastfed babies who don’t produce anything…solid…) but many parents find they make changes easier.
These newborn nappies are especially designed to be used from day one, and will last you from about 5lbs to 18lbs (normally about six months).
