  • Green choices for your baby’s bottom

    Once upon a time, opting for an eco-minded baby product could mean paying more or settling for a less than perfect performance. But this just isn’t the case anymore. There are now plenty of competitively priced eco baby products on shelves, and they perform just as well as, or better than, the more traditional options.

    A big boon is that the range is growing, so you can pick and choose what suits your needs. Gone are the days of the token green options for eco-conscious mums, thankfully!

    Another step forward for the green baby market has been the blending of convenience with eco-mindedness. The biggest example of this has to be the nappies that can be used as a reusable or as a partially disposable nappy, for those times when you really do want the convenience a disposable offers.

    So from this new breed of nappies, to eco disposables, fully reusable nappies, green baby wipes and a lush nappy cream, click through to see 10 of the best option for your nappy change bag. And don't miss our step-by-step buyer's guide to reusable nappies and advice for buying secondhand reusables.
