    We have lots of extra little bits to make life that little bit easier while using reusable nappies. So if you want to boost the absorbency of your nappies, we have the Bamboozle Pads, which popper into the Bamboozle Stretch Nappy or Bamboozle Wrap. We also have the Bamboo Boosters which fit in all TotsBots nappies and most other brands.

    Add a disposable or washable fleece liner to make poo disposal easier and help prevent staining.

    We also have our Nappy storage bags so whether you are at home, or out and about you can store your clean or dirty nappies in our waterproof bags knowing they are safe and separate from your other bits and bobs.

  • Birth-to-Potty Nappies

    Birth-to-Potty Nappies

    “How can one nappy fit a newborn and a toddler?” we hear you ask. Well, it’s simple! Poppers on the front allow you to make the cloth nappy smaller or bigger.

    TotsBots fit most babies from 8/9 lbs up until potty training at around 35 lbs. This is because the average waist measurement of a newborn is around 40 cm, which only increases to around 55 cm by the time potty training comes around. Plus, we use the best and stretchiest elastic, ensuring a snug and comfortable fit at all stages of your baby’s growth.

    Birth-to-potty reusable nappies can save you big bucks in the long term. There’s no need to buy different sizes each time your baby grows and you can even use them on multiple bums if you have more than one bubba in cloth — just change the popper setting!

    Our birth-to-potty fabric nappies are one size fits most. In most of our ranges, Size 2 is our birth-to-potty size. For babies on the skinnier or chunkier side, we have selected ranges of Size 1 and Size 3 cloth nappies. For really tiny babies, we recommend our TeenyFit all-in-one nappy which fits from 5 lbs.

  • What will I need to get started?

    What will I need to get started?

    You need around 15-25 nappies to use TotsBots cloth nappies full-time. This costs around £200-£300. Disposables can cost around £1,000, meaning reusable cloth nappies can save you approximately £700. Yay!

    Remember, it doesn't have to be all or nothing. Why not use one or two washable nappies a day and gradually build up a full-time stash? We have discounted cloth nappy trial kits available with code TBTK & NNTK1, so you can give them a go for as little as £30. That's a whopping saving!

    Reusable nappy extras: Reusable or disposable nappy liners and a waterproof bag or lidded bucket to store nappies until wash day.
