In the past, many mothers used Baby cloth nappies, before the advent of disposable cellulose nappies. Today, more and more mums are opting for cloth nappies because they are an environmentally friendly and more economical option in the long run.
Cloth nappies are cost-effective as they can be reused, simply clean them with water and neutral soap, avoiding bleach and detergents, which can damage the cotton that is in direct contact with the baby's delicate skin.
When choosing the type of nappy it is important to consider the following parts of a cloth nappy: Absorbent + Cover (+ Lining).
There is a wide variety of cloth nappies on the market today. Today I bring you some of the types of nappies you will find.
Two-piece: In this case, the absorbent and the cover are separate pieces, so it will always be necessary to put two elements on the baby at each nappy change.
All-in-one refillable: The nappy combines the waterproof cover and the liner. It therefore requires absorbent pads to retain the wee-wee.
All-in-one: As the name suggests, these nappies combine the absorbent, the cover and, optionally, the liner in one piece, making them as practical to use as a disposable.
Today I bring you 5 shops where you can buy these, so let's get started.
My first recommendation is happynaps built on the philosophy of true sustainability. Human well-being and survival inherently depend upon the health of Earth’s natural systems. By changing from disposable diapers to Happy Naps you can reduce your carbon footprint with 40%. Their prints are inspired by nature to enhance the beauty of our planet and to raise awareness on this important matter.
One thing I really like about this site is that it helps you to understand everything about these disposable diapers. Check out their website.
My second recommendation is bambinomio, this company was born out of the idea Guy and Yo, the founders, were traveling in India when they came up with an idea that turned their world upside down. Today, more than 20 years, a marriage, 3 children, an MBE*, more than 100 awards and 50 countries worldwide later, Bambino Mio is the largest cloth diaper brand in the world.

Ecopipo was founded with one mission in mind: to make the world a cleaner place. They have been designing, developing and sharing the most absorbent nappies on the market for almost 10 years.
Mothers and fathers wanted nappies that were easy to use, reliable, affordable, durable and looked great on babies' tummies. And with this in mind they started to work looking for the best quality fabrics, the simplest designs and a combination of liners that were incredibly absorbent.
