Why Cloth?

We think we make the best cloth nappies on the planet. Here’s everything you may need to know about wrapping those bums in cloth. 

  • Easy on your wallet
  • Easy on you
  • Easy on baby
  • Easy on the Environment

Easy on your wallet

Babies don’t come cheap, that’s for sure, and parents in the UK are spending upwards of half a billion pounds every year on disposable nappies – quite literally, throwing their money away!

We estimate you can save up to £750 compared to the cost of using throwaway nappies and lots of local councils offer cashback incentives for parents who decide to use cloth! Check out if your local council have an incentive scheme on our list here. 

Easy on you

Hook and loop fastening to go on exactly like a disposable, leak-proof seams for a soft, snug fit and super absorbent cores mean cloth nappies have zoomed into the 21st century with a super soft fluffy landing.

Washing? We’ve got it covered. After storing your used nappies inside a lockable, smell-proof bucket lined with a mesh bag; just simply remove the bag and chuck it into your machine, nappies and all. Wash with non-bio powder at 60 degrees or less and you can even wash in with other washing. It’s as easy as that!

Easy on baby

High performing, breathable and natural fabrics next to your bubba’s beautiful bottom. TotsBots nappies are the only reusable nappy brand to be Oekotex 100 certified – meaning there are absolutely no harmful chemicals used in our entire manufacturing process, yup – from start to finish!

Using cloth can help reduce nappy rash, eczema, psoriasis and other skin conditions and can in many cases encourage early potty-training. 

Easy on the Environment

Did you know by using cloth nappies on your baby you will divert in the region of 4000 indisposable nappies from landfill?! Nappies that will still be around 500 years from now, we should add. Yes, that’s right, it is estimated to take around 500 years for one disposable nappy to decompose. If Henry VIII had been in disposable nappies, they would still be intact in a landfill somewhere near Hampton Court – now that stinks.

We should also mention that by giving cloth a go you can 1/2 your weekly rubbish and your carbon footprint could be up to 40% smaller. Certainly beats a last minute dash to the shops for nappies at 3 in the morning!
