Confused by the huge range of disposable nappies? Our guide will help decode the lingo and help you find the right size and style for your baby, whatever their age.
Disposable nappies are nappies that your baby wears once, and then get thrown away. Made of layers of paper, absorbent wood pulp and plastics, they usually contain a polyacrylate, which absorbs liquid and turns to a gel when wet, expanding and holding many times its own weight and volume in fluid.
Mums concerned about the environmental impact of disposable nappies, but who don't want to head down the reusable nappy route can also now opt for eco disposables, or part-disposable part-reusable nappies.
