Best Reusable Nappy UK

Nappies are an absolute necessity when you are having a baby until you get your little one potty trained. This means your household budget will also significantly change. In fact, according to experts from the Money Advice Service, parents in the UK spend a monthly average of £23.52 on nappies alone (and this statistic was in 2018)!

This relatively high cost is probably the reason why cloth or reusable nappies have sprung back to life. Ask your parents (or grandparents), and they’d probably say you were raised on reusable nappies. They would also tell you that it costs them way lesser amounts than what you are currently (or about to be) spending on disposable nappies.

Of course, other than the apparent savings, reusable nappies are also more environmentally friendly compared to non-biodegradable disposable diapers.

Things to Consider When Buying Reusable Nappies

Since the comeback of reusable nappies, there have been so many types and brands now available in the market. So how do you choose? Below are some of our tips, followed by our list of the ten best reusable nappies available in the UK for 2020.

Your Reason Going Reusable: If savings are your primary incentive, old-fashioned cotton terry nappies are the way to go. However, if convenience is more relevant to you and the other carers of your baby (i.e. grandparents or childcare), you may want to go for the more modern, reusable nappies. 

Sizing and Durability: Are you looking at one that will last your baby until they are older and can even be used with your other kids? Most reusable nappies come in one-size-fits-all sizes for this purpose. However, it can be too big for younger babies, or too small for bigger ones. You also want to check the make of the elastic for the all-in-one nappies as these tend to wear off quickly.

Key features:
  • Unique pull-out tab system.
  • Adjustable poppers.
  • Tuck in pocket.
  • Fold back laundry tabs.
Specifications:
Inner: Polyester & nylon.
Outer: Polyester.
Size: One size.

Best product

Bambino is a British brand specialising in reusable nappies and its accessories. Their award-winning Bambino Miosolo all-in-one cloth nappy is our top pick on our best reusable nappy list. The features below will justify why.

First off, the nappy comes in a one-size design, which ideally means it will grow with your baby from birth until their toddlerhood. It comes with adjustable poppers and secure velcro closures to ensure a suitable fit for your little one. However, Bambino has aptly put a disclaimer that this is not a 100% guarantee, due to the varying range of babies’ shapes and sizes.

The Miosolo comes in a range of vibrant colours and designs, to complement your little one’s outfits. It is made of water-resistant and stretchy fibre to accommodate your little one’s wide range of activities. 

Its unique feature is the pull-out tab system, that allows easy removal of the core from the nappy, making your washing and drying time such a breeze. Putting and securing the core back in place is also convenient thanks to the integrated tuck-in pockets.

Finally, it has a fold-back laundry tab feature that not only protects the velcro closures but also saving you from having to untangle a chain of nappies from the machine or from having to clean any other materials stuck onto it.

Key features:
  • Double row of snap closures.
  • Leg gusset and pleated elastics.
  • Easy insert and removal.
  • Waterproof.
