Nü Bamboo Nappies
New parents go through several brands of nappies before they find one that works well for their baby. It’s not an easy task with so many important points to consider.
Nappies that do not fit well tend to have leaks and other messy results that have nothing to do with the nappy’s absorbency. When switching to NU bamboo nappies, we recommend you try a size lower compared to other brands.
If the nappy is too rough it could lead to rash and chaffing. If the nappy is too smooth, it may not be very absorbent. Soft bamboo fibres create a cooling effect on baby skin and helps prevent nappy rash.
Some nappies that are not so absorbent may be great for only one wetting. But that’s not very
practical for sleeping through the night. Our bamboo nappies are perfect for wet and rewetting.
Parents Environmental related questions
Are there hazardous effects to the environment in the manufacturing process? Are there lot’s of chemicals used in their production? What is the environmental impact regarding disposal?
These are only a few of the main concerns for parents. we have good news our product does not harm the eco-system, through production, during use or at end of life. One key point of concern which extends beyond parents is nappy disposal.
Over 92% of disposable nappies end up in UK landfills each year. and can take up to 500 years to degrade, NU Bamboo composts within 2 years, in 2016 an estimate put the number of nappies being thrown away in the UK at three billion a year. Add to that a few years and the several thousandbabies that have been born since then, and these numbers are much higher.
If these numbers seem unbelievably high, consider the number of nappies each child uses a year. An average baby weighing 7.5 lbs. will go through roughly 2,457 nappies in his or her first year according to the DiaperPlanner.com website.
