The Smart Nappy from Mothercare

Introducing the disposable reusable – or should that be the reusable disposable?

Smart Nappy
If you never know which side of the disposable versus reusable debate you think you should side with, you'll be over-joyed to hear about the Smart Nappy…

The Smart Nappy System
The Smart Nappy system from Mothercare is something of a conundrum, but very definitely a happy one in that it allows a choice between washable reusable pads or disposable ones – all you have to do is decide which you want to put in the nappy outer.

The reusable pad is easy to use as well as environmentally friendly, locking away wetness in the ultra-absorbent inner layers to keep your baby’s skin fresh and dry. The top liner can be removed when soiled, allowing the reusable pad to be washed and used again. Alternatively, the disposable pads are chlorine-free, helping to prevent nappy rash and lightweight, which means you’ll be putting less waste into landfill.

Good design at a high street price
The unique easy-fit cradle system secures either type of pad firmly in place and guards against leakage, while the elasticated comfy-fit leg openings offer extra security.

Trial pack £9.99 (contains one nappy outer, one disposable pad, one reusable pad and five nappy liners), Starter pack £39.99 (consists of four nappy outers and eight reusable pads). Available in newborn (4-11lb/2-5kg), small (6-13lb/3-6kg) and medium (12-20lb/5.5-9kg) sizes.
