The Best Eco Nappy Options on the Market Right Now
If you’ve had kids or are planning to have children, you’ve likely considered trying one of the many eco nappy options on the market. It’s incredibly important to switch to an eco nappy – one baby in their first year of life will go through 2500 nappies. In their second year, that number drops to 1400-1800, which is still an unimaginable amount of unrecyclable waste going to the landfill.
You may have been scared off of the idea of eco nappies by the various horror stories people always offer up when reusable diapers come up. The good news is that the eco nappy options today are much more advanced than those from decades past. Here are the most popular options that you must try!
Eco Nappy Options to Try
Reusable and cloth
The materials used to make reusable diapers today are far advanced than those of decades previous. The super absorbent cores and leakproof exteriors are thoughtfully built into the design.
- Bambino Mio Miosolo – This variation of the eco nappy has rave reviews online and tons of adorable patterns to choose from.
- Petit LuLu – The maker of these eco nappies sets themselves apart from the rest with their ability to be waterproof and breathable at the same time. The fleece hem keeps your baby comfortable at all times.
- Totsbots – Known for how similar they are to regular nappies, these are super easy to throw on quickly! The velcro makes for a seamless transition to eco nappy options.
- Wizard Uno – A one-part nappy that provides the leak-proof coverage of a two-part nappy. These are super convenient.
For those just starting out on their eco nappy journey, biodegradable nappies are a great transitional option. They’re also great to have on hand for when your reusable options don’t make sense, like when travelling. Here are a few brands to try:
- Eco Boom Bamboo Diapers – Anti-leak system and super absorbent core mean your baby will stay dry and comfortable all day.
- Muumi Eco Nappies – Chlorine-free, hypoallergenic, and super gentle for sensitive babies.
- Mum & You Premium Performance – Extra leak protection for those crawling and squirming babies! Plus, they’re hypoallergenic and dermatologically tested.

- Old towels – or newly purchased – for super absorbent material
- Waterproof material like polyester
