Amid all the updates about alcohol flying off the shelves and social distancing, parents and carers still need to purchase the many necessities for their little ones in this chaotic time. One absolute essential is nappies.
Apparently, newborns get through an average of 12 nappies a day, and alongside the toilet roll shortage, nappies seem to be disappearing fast too.
Could now be the perfect time to start sustainably wrapping up the tots then? We are aware of the environmental dilemma that comes with purchasing all those disposable nappies so what better time to give these top brands a go?
Kit & Kin was created back in 2017 by co-founders Emma Bunton (yes, Baby Spice; how apt) and Christopher Money, bringing over 15 years’ experience working in the mother and baby industry for some of the world’s leading brands.
As parents themselves, Emma and Chris struggled to find products which didn’t irritate their children’s skin. They were inspired to create Kit & Kin, offering families a range of safe, eco-friendly and affordable products that are better for babies and better for the environment.
Choose from high performance hypoallergenic nappies, biodegradable nappy sacks and baby wipes. All products are hypoallergenic and approved by dermatologists to ensure they’re mild and kind to use on skin.
The brand also provide skincare and babywear; our favourites are the bear and bunny cardigans. Too cute.
Over 40 years old, Bambo Nature produces skin and eco-friendly nappies and baby products for families all over the world.
Each Bambo Nature product is designed to provide comfort and safety by using quality ingredients and materials. Supplying consumers with a range of nappies, pants, lotions and wipes their products have proven to be as strong and effective as they are safe and sustainable.
The brand’s HQ, located in Denmark, also recycles 95% of all waste from the production of their baby nappies, e.g. foil wrapping from raw materials and surplus textiles. Waste is collected and sold to recycling companies to be processed in a cradle-to-cradle lifecycle that transforms it into new raw materials.
LittleLamb is a family run business where co-founders Nick and Vicky have tried and tested all their washable and reusable nappies on their six kids (saving over 39000 disposables from landfill apparently!).
All their products’ components are tested and certified using Oeko-tex100 certified bamboo yarn and GOTS organic cotton yarn. They are even conscious of dying the nappies with products that can restrict absorption.
Little Lamb products include nappies, wraps and accessories such as bamboo breast pads and organic cotton wipes. They even provide cloth sanity pads that you can wash and reuse for up to three years.
We say join the Little Lamb community today and help save acres of landfill.
Bambino Mio was founded in 1997 by husband and wife Guy and Jo Schanschieff, who set up a reusable nappy laundry service from their home in Northampton and then began to sell reusable nappies.
Since their humble beginnings the company has won over 50 awards including GOLD in the Loved By Parents Awards 2017 for Best Reusable Nappy and PLATINUM in the Junior Design Awards 2016 for Best Reusable Nappy.
As well as nappies, Bambino Mio sells nappy liners, reusable swim nappies, potty training pants, reusable baby wipes, and laundry detergent. Their website also offers potty training and swimming tips for all carers out there in need of a little help.
