How to Save ££££ with reusable nappies.

How much money can I save with reusable nappies?

So OK we have to buy reusable nappies to start with BUT once you own them, they are there!  No subscriptions, or late night trips to the supermarket required.

So let's look at the basic maths....

1 Baby = Nappies

So how many nappies? This is a question I hear frequently from new parents and parents to be, looking to get their nappy system sorted before their baby is born. So simply put if the Baby needed 7 nappies a day (probably more in the early days as a newborn is changed every 2 hours or more) but for arguments sake and simplicity we will say 7, imagining your baby is past the early newborn stage.

How many reusable nappies do I need


7 nappies a day = 49 Nappies a week = 2548 nappies a year

So you would need to go to the shop each week and be buying around 2500 nappies a year. There are many disposable brands out there ranging from a premium range cost down to a lower price point usually found in your local budget supermarket.  Costing you on average £1000 for the year, this is the lower end of the price you would probably end up paying.

So it's clear to see how this figure will grow if your child potty trains at 2 or 3 years old.

With reusables you could save over £1000 by buying a set of resables.

Where Can I get Reusable Nappies from?

You can source second hand nappies or save money by buying a starter kit. But on average you should be able to get enough to cloth full time for £300.  Factor in the cost to wash, then line dry you will still make a huge saving!  Make sure you check out your local council to see if they run an incentive or cashback scheme, visit my page on councils to check your local area here.

Also you may have a nappy library in your area, that will help you try before you buy, if you live in Lincolnshire my home county, contact Lincolnshire Cloth Nappy NCT group here.
