Here at ThinkBaby we are always on the look out for good natural alternatives to disposable nappies. The classic Mother Ease One Size is the original re-usable cotton nappy.

The Mother Ease One Size is made from 85% cotton terry towelling with 15% polyester in the outer weave to reduce shrinkage. As the name suggests, this nappy does only come in one size but it can be fastened and adjusted with poppers to fit little ones weighing 3.5-16kg (8-35lbs). The waist and legs are elasticated to give a good fit and ensure against leaks.

Little Green Earthlets are cloth nappy specialists who supply a complete range of Mother-ease nappies and essentials. This includes the award winning, tried and tested Mother-ease One Size cloth nappy that fits from newborn to toddler and is now available in 100% organic cotton. See

Hi everyone,

Anybody out there using eco friendly biodegradable nappies, nappy sacks & wipes etc?

I would like to know if they are they as good as conventional nappies?

I'm ttc at the moment but I've been scanning around for eco friendly baby stuff as my husband & I are quite big into recycling and want to do our part in reducing landfill etc (if we ever get preggars that is!!).

We're going to build a wormery and I understand that the Naturebotts nappies can be "recycled" in the wormery, but I'm concerned that although they are better for the environment and babys skin (no nasty chemicals,)they might not be as "reliable" as conventional nappies (leakage etc).

Anyone got first hand experience?

Hi there, congrats on the baby!

I used Moltex Eco disposables on my son for the first couple of weeks before switching to cloth nappies and had no real complaints. I've never used non-eco nappies though, so have no idea how they compare. If Ginny sees this thread she should be able to help you because she's definitely got expereince of both.

Hi Kia,
i have just bought a reusable nappy. I have always used disposables but just thought i would give it a go. They come with great designs on but cost about £12 each, plus you need either washable or dispoble liners (bio-degradable)They last for about 2 wees and he hasnt had a poo in one yet. The only thing is that he commandos across the floor and the velcro gets stuck on the carpet then the nappy eventually comes off, and i find one naked cheek exposed baby loving the new freedom he has just been given and thinks its highly amusing and keeps doing it.

Hi Julia

Sorry for not responding sooner, I've been on holiday to ireland for a week.

Thanks for the info! Are you going to stick with the re-usable or go back to the disposables then?

Sounds like you've got a cheeky and active handful - but at least he's cute with it!! lol
