Real Nappies

Real Nappies Washable nappies are much cheaper than disposables, kinder to your baby and friendlier to the environment. They are also very convenient and attractive, in lovely fabrics, mostly with velcro or poppers, and are easy to wash at home.

Washing

Modern washing machines mean that washable nappies don't need to be soaked and wet nappies can just be thrown in with other baby clothes. Nowadays, soiling is separated with a flushable or washable liner.

Beautiful designs and fabrics
