CLOTH NAPPY INFORMATION

 

There are many advantages to using cloth reusable nappies over disposables. As well as being kinder to the environment, in the long run cloth nappies can work out much cheaper than disposables, even with the washing costs included. They also provide a more comfortable, chemical-free cushion for babies' bums and, best of all, can be much better at containing poo.
The BCT’s cloth nappy information service has information on selecting and using cloth nappies in Belgium. In addition, samples of different nappy systems are available for loan.
