Are Reusable nappies more expensive?
It's true there is an initial cost to using modern cloth nappies: whilst each disposable nappy sells for a few pence, reusable nappies cost pounds. However, once you’ve stocked up, you don’t need to buy more and they only add a few more loads of washing to your routine. Some councils offer cloth nappy incentive schemes with vouchers or cash back to help parents buy cloth nappies. This can be a postcode lottery so Bells Bumz has launched the FIRST Nationwide reusable nappy incentive scheme regardless of where you live in the UK.

When deciding which cloth nappies to buy, the most important thing is to choose ones which suit your circumstances. We can help you find the best reusable nappy for your lifestyle with our cloth nappy questionnaire. Want to know how much you could save with cloth nappies? Use our savings calculator below.

How Many Cloth Nappies Do I Need?
You can start with One! For a full day in cloth I would recommend 6 cloth nappies, to allow you to wash less often or use cloth full time 12 cloth nappies is a good starting number, although for the simplest wash routine most recommend 20-25 day time cloth nappies and 3 - 5 night time cloth nappies for full time use. If you’re using a two-part system, such as a fitted, flat nappy or our innovative z soakers in a wrap then we recommend buying one wrap for every three nappies. Usually the wrap stays clean so can be reused after most nappy changes for up to 12 hours, we recommend having two per daytime and alternating during the day. Our handy calculator below helps you calculate how many cloth nappies you need for your baby.

The best reusable nappies of 2023, tried and tested – from cloth nappies to reusable swim nappies Better for the environment, we've found the best reusable nappies for newborns to toddlers, tested by a mum of two Mention cloth nappies to older generations and they’ll describe soaking pails of smelly nappies, boiling them, folding towels, and accidents with safety pins. But the best reusable nappies these days can be as simple to put on as disposables – they’re shaped, elasticated, fastened with velcro or poppers, and come in a dazzling choice of prints. And they’re easier to care for too: there’s no soaking or boiling; all you have to do is chuck them in the washing machine. Truly, we are living in a golden age of reusable nappies.

To save a mountain of rubbish. Most toddlers are out of nappies before they’re three years old. Over that time span, if you were to replace just one disposable nappy a day with a reusable one, you’d save around 900 nappies from going to landfill where they would take hundreds of years to decompose.   Some parents also choose cloth nappies to avoid the chemicals in disposables. One study "detected a number of hazardous chemicals in disposable diapers that could migrate through urine, for example, and enter into prolonged contact with babies' skin."  So why aren’t we all using reusables? I know some people are put off by the idea of handling and processing reusable nappies
Why buy reusable nappies?  To save a mountain of rubbish. Most toddlers are out of nappies before they’re three years old. Over that time span, if you were to replace just one disposable nappy a day with a reusable one, you’d save around 900 nappies from going to landfill where they would take hundreds of years to decompose.   Some parents also choose cloth nappies to avoid the chemicals in disposables. One study "detected a number of hazardous chemicals in disposable diapers that could migrate through urine, for example, and enter into prolonged contact with babies' skin."  So why aren’t we all using reusables? I know some people are put off by the idea of handling and processing reusable nappies – but honestly, I found it’s really not that bad. Common practice is to use a permeable nappy liner, which sits between your baby’s skin and the cloth nappy and catches non-liquid waste. Folding up and throwing away the liner is much like dealing with a disposable nappy.
Are reusable nappies more expensive? It's true there is an initial cost: whilst each disposable nappy sells for a few pence, reusables cost pounds. However, once you’ve stocked up, you don’t need to buy more (though washing is an ongoing cost). Some councils offer vouchers or cash back to help parents buy cloth nappies. It’s a postcode lottery but worth checking to see if help is available in your area.  When deciding which cloth nappies to buy, the most important thing is to choose ones which suit your circumstances. Specialist seller Wendy Richards, founder of The Nappy Lady, sums it up: “There is no best reusable nappy, only the best nappy for your lifestyle”.
How do I choose the best nappies for my baby? There are many variables to consider when searching for the right nappy: the size and shape of your baby, whether they’re prone to leaks, and – crucially – your home washing and drying facilities. Using cloth nappies full-time, I washed a batch of nappies every two or three days. If you live in a cold, small or damp space, you’ll need quick-drying nappies.  Whilst the choices can seem overwhelming, there are two main options.  One-part nappies involve fastening one layer around your child, much like a disposable nappy. They are convenient and quickest to put on but offer less absorbency and containment than a two-part system because they tend to have one set of elastic and a smaller absorbent core.  Two-part nappies involve using a cloth nappy with a separate wrap. They’re unbeatable for absorbency and containment. The whole nappy of the inner layer is made from absorbent material, so they are often used as night-time nappies
Two-part nappies involve using a cloth nappy with a separate wrap. They’re unbeatable for absorbency and containment. The whole nappy of the inner layer is made from absorbent material, so they are often used as night-time nappies or for nap times and long journeys.   They also have two sets of elastic, making them likely to contain even the most explosive expulsions. They tend to be slower drying, because they absorb more, but if you’ve got a heavy wetter and space to dry the nappies, then they’re a reliable regular option. Two-parters can work out cheaper because you only need to buy a few wraps to cover a stash of nappies.
How I tested the best reusable nappies I first tested reusable nappies for the Telegraph back in 2019 with my first child and kept using them for years. For this update, I’ve tested dozens of new nappies on my second child, a ten-month-old baby. I also tried a variety of pull-up pants on my three-year-old overnight. Here’s what I’ve found in my search for the best reusable nappies on the market. (And if you have a new arrival, you may want to read our guide to the best high chairs, the best travel cots, the best prams and pushchairs and the best baby carriers.)
How many nappies will I need? It depends on how many nappy changes you do per day, how regularly you want to wash a batch of nappies, and how quick-drying they are. In general, if you wash a load of nappies every other day, you’ll be looking at buying around 20 nappies - 15 for daytime and 5 for nighttime. If you’re starting with an older child who needs fewer nappy changes, you may not need so many.   If you’re using a two-part system, most sellers recommend buying one wrap for every four nappies. Usually the wrap stays clean so can be reused after most nappy changes.
What else will I need to get started? Assuming that you already have a washing machine and somewhere to hang your nappies for drying, you’ll need:  Nappy bucket Waterproof storage bags for dirty nappies when you’re out and about Changing mat Wipes (more on reusable wipes below) Liners (optional, more info on those below) Boosters (possibly, more info below)
How do I wash nappies? Dirty nappies should be washed at least every two or three days. You can store dirty nappies inside a nappy bucket (no soaking required) and then empty it into your washing machine. I do a pre-rinse to flush out all the nasties before adding detergent for washing.  Different brands give different guidance on what temperature you should wash their nappies, but most recommend either 40 or 60 degrees. Some brands also recommend using washing powder rather than detergent. You need to beware of detergent build-up affecting the absorbency of cloth so don’t use too much. You can rinse the nappies after washing to rid them of excess detergent. Never use fabric softener because it reduces the absorbency of the nappy.  It’s best to let your nappies dry naturally and sunlight is remarkably effective at removing stains.
What are nappy liners? Liners are an optional extra. They are there to help dispose of solids from the nappy more easily. Disposable ones are biodegradable and can be lifted out and binned, or composted, whilst you can shake or scrape any solids off a reusable liner and then add it into the nappy bucket.  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.  Most nappy brands sell their own liners but I used all sorts and found that they all did largely the same job equally well.
Can I use reusable nappies overnight? Yes you definitely can and many do, but if your baby is a very heavy wetter (especially if they’re still feeding through the night) then you may have to work hard to boost your night nappy adequately to avoid leaks.  The more boosters you add, the larger the bum. I found the Baby BeeHinds Night Nappy paired with a wool wrap worked a dream.  Some parents with heavy wetters use reusables by day and a disposable overnight.
What are the pros and cons of different fabrics? Cotton is the traditional reusable nappy fabric and extremely long-lasting. Cotton nappies can serve multiple children and still be sold on after use. It’s highly absorbent and washes well.  Parents wanting to avoid chemicals and artificial fabrics often opt for organic cotton as the purest option available. Cotton takes longer to dry.  Bamboo fabrics are more absorbent than cotton without being any bulkier. They feel softer to the touch. However, bamboo isn’t so long-lasting and you can’t buy ‘organic bamboo’ because the manufacturing process that turns bamboo into fabric is highly industrial.  Microfibre makes for the ultimate quick-drying nappies, which is useful when drying space and time is limited. Microfibre holds fluid between its filaments, rather than absorbing it inside the fibre and that’s why it’s quick-drying, but it also makes it liable to compression leaks if your baby plonks their bottom down when the nappy is full.
What are boosters? Boosters are another name for nappy inserts. They’re absorbent pads which can be used to boost the absorbency of nappies. They can be made from a wide variety of materials: microfibre, cotton, bamboo, hemp etc. You can buy boosters from different brands, mix and match, and even use old pieces of cloth and towel to boost nappies as you see fit. If you have a heavy wetter you might regularly need to add a booster into your nappies.
What size nappies do I need? Some nappies come in different sizes (though not as great a size range as disposable nappies do), whereas others are called ‘one-size’ or ‘birth to potty’ nappies and can be adjusted to fit your growing baby.   Buying one size of reusable nappy is generally most economical. That said, very few birth-to-potty nappies truly fit well from birth without leaking (although the Easy Peasy Bumble was the best option I found), so if you want to use cloth nappies on a newborn you’ll probably want some special small nappies. You can hire newborn kits to keep costs down as you won’t need this size for very long or you can fold terry squares and pin them with a nappi nippa to get the ultimate bespoke fit for your little one.   Some parents choose to start reusables when their babies are a couple of months old so that they can go straight into one-size nappies. Other parents prefer sized nappies for the closer fit and they can also make economic sense if serving multiple
Why am I getting leaks? If you’re experiencing leaks, first check the fit of the nappy. You want to ensure the elastic at the waist and legs is a close fit, without being too tight. The UK Nappy Network have a useful fit guide here.  If there are no gaps where fluid is escaping, you’ll want to check the absorbent capacity of the nappy and might need to add boosters.  For overnight, most people recommend adding extra boosters between the nappy and the wrap because you can’t add too many boosters inside the nappy without compromising the fit. It’s also worth looking on YouTube for videos of people using the nappies that you’re interested in as sellers and bloggers will also demonstrate specific techniques for getting the best fit.  Two-part systems are best for limiting leaks as they’re most absorbent and offer two layers of elastic for ultimate containment.
Is it worth using reusable wipes? Definitely. Once you’re using reusable nappies, reusable wipes are a no-brainer. A pile of reusable wipes will last years and save you a small fortune - plus you’ll never run out. I have a stash at my changing station and throw used wipes into the nappy bucket with the dirty nappies. They take up barely any extra space in the wash. They’re convenient to use because, unlike with wet wipes, they don’t all get stuck together and come out in a long line. You can easily pick up one wipe at a time. They’re natural on baby’s bum. They have good traction. I could go on.  I have a container full of water by the changing station to dip them in, but some people make special washing solutions.
How often do you change a reusable nappy? You should change a reusable nappy every two to three hours during the day. Newborns generally need changing more regularly, like every two hours. Babies and toddlers over six months old need changing approximately every three hours. Of course, if your child does a poo then it’s best to change them straight away. If you have a suitably absorbent nappy for night use then they can be used for twelve hours without a change, just like disposables overnight.  How long do reusable nappies last? They should last for years and can be passed from child to child. Of course, all brands and fabrics are different and it depends how you treat them with washing and drying. If you follow the care instructions, most brands claim they’ll last, with constant use, for at least three years and many for far longer. There will be some wear and tear from hundreds of washes. Sometimes the elastic can start to go after a few years or patterns will fade – but I’ve used a
