Do you use reusable nappies? Have you always wanted to start?

Did you know you could save hundreds of pounds each year by ditching the disposables AND single-handedly save the planet? (OK, that last part was a bit of an exaggeration, but you’ll definitely be waaaaay more eco-friendly..!)

Alright, enough with all the questions – you need to get yourself to the Bambino Mio headquarters at Brixworth, Northampton this weekend, quick-smart. Because they’re having a super-duper factory sale and you can save up to 50% off selected ranges!!

I always thought reusable nappies were awkward and messy, but I tried them for the first time with Lil Sis the other week, and they were fantastic! There were no leaks, which was my biggest concern, and bubs seemed totally comfortable wearing them. They were really easy to clean as well – I just chucked the actual cloth part of the nappy straight in the washing machine.

To find out what will be available on the day, simply visit their Facebook page and ‘like’ them to access their factory sale price list, and get directions to the factory. 


  1. When I was broaching the subject two years ago I was told that the amount of water and electricity you use running the washing machine for nappies offsets any environmental damage done by using disposeables. I don’t know how true this is.
    Also, I have aquestion – aare the reuseables bulky like the old fashioned terrolene nappies of our childhood? I’m asking because baby clothes are no longer designed for such bulky bottoms.

  2. Hi midlifesinglemum, it does depend how you care for your nappies, a report was published in 2008 by the Environment Agency stating that reusable nappies are up to 40% better for the environment than disposables. If however washing in half loads daily, at a high temperature in an inefficient washing machine and then tumble drying each nappy then this figure will be less. So it does depend on the user. By switching to reusables you will also reduce the number of nappies going to landfill, with approx 5,000 nappies per child, using reusables can have a significant difference.

  3. Midlife Single Mum: There you go! Hope that answers your question 😉 On the subject of the bulkiness, I was worried about that too – but I can personally vouch that the one I tried was really compact. They’re not at all like the nappies I remember from when I was a kid, as the cloth part is more like an insert inside the elasticated nappy cover. x
