Nappies are a huge expense for parents on a budget and many have chosen to save money and go down the environmentally friendly route of reusable nappies instead of disposables nappies. However, as reusable nappies are not mainstream and you can’t yet walk into a supermarket and have a wide range of reusable nappy choices, we’ve pulled together this list and advice of where to buy both new and used reusable nappies.

Because of the vast number of available options when it comes to reusable nappies and the inability to evaluate them in your local supermarket, deciding on a brand or even a type of nappy can be very difficult. There isn’t a single optimal nappy; rather, it is a matter of selecting one that is appropriate for your own circumstances and preferences, as well as one that is comfortable for your kid. This is why we really recommend speaking to nappy specialist stores who can really help you find the nappy system that is going to work for you throughout your cloth nappy journey.

Buying New Cloth Nappies

Listed below are cloth nappy suppliers who are either located in the United Kingdom or who ship to the United Kingdom and are well worth checking out. We believe it will save you the time and effort of searching through websites. It’s convenient to have everything in one location.

It is better to buy from a specialist reusable nappy retailer as these have the experience to help you find the best washable nappies for you. They will also probably be able to find the perfect kit complete with nappy bucket or wet bags, and boosters to give extra absorbency for small babies up to when they are potty trained.

Buying Preloved Reusable Nappies

If you are looking to buy preloved reusable nappies, there are a few places that you can look. Check out our guide to buying second-hand nappies here and all the tips and tricks to look for.

Rent before you buy options for Cloth Nappies

If you know what reusable nappies you are looking for, great, go straight ahead and buy them! However, if you are still unsure whether to go for pocket nappies or birth to potty nappies, if you still don’t know the best reusable nappies for you then it’s worth considering renting. We’ve done a detailed guide to renting nappies here and detailed guidance on cloth nappy libraries here.

Is it worth buying reusable nappies?

Yes! Without a doubt, cloth nappies will save you money on one child, and if you are planning to use them on a second child you will save much more money! We look into the cost of nappies here and how much you will save.

You will be using them for two and a half years so they are a big investment and it’s vital that you try a few types and see which suits you best. You need to ensure that you get your washing routine sorted, with the right amount of washing powder for your washing machine and water and once you have all of that fixed, it’s wash and go! But it really is worth going with a reusable nappy specialist retailer who can help you get the best real nappies for you. For a newborn baby, as baby grows and then even for potty training!

Whilst it might seem cheaper to buy from cheap stores like Amazon, remember that they won’t have the knowledge or expertise probably to even know the difference between two-part nappies and all in one nappies, how absorbent each nappy is, or give you tailored expert advice!

Take Away

The best reusable nappy is the one that works for you and your baby. The article has explored a number of options to help you decide which type of cloth or disposable nappies will work for both your budget and lifestyle more effectively, whether choosing flat nappies with an outer wrap or outer layer, nappy inserts or an all in one nappy. We hope this post has helped educate you on how to choose the right types of diapers, as well as where to buy them from so that no matter what your decision is, it’s an informed choice. Don’t forget to check out your local council and see if they offer any incentives, we’ve got a guide here as they encourage parents to switch away from disposable nappies.
