i generally use cloth/MCNs for environmental reasons (and to save money) but these are a good compromise for going out, travelling and other situations where MCNs could be a hassle.
these are still quite environmentally friendly for those who are motivated by concern for the environment. good for the first few weeks of baby's life when runny poo means cloth nappies might not be such a good idea.
they are kind of expensive and for that reason I would never use them as my 'main' nappy, just as a gap-filler when MCNs can't do the job.
Really happy to use them, and bub is comfortable and nappy rash free. Worth the extra cost, though I wish my local council could take this compostable waste as they still go to landfill. If you live in an apartment or have no garden you have to bin it anyway. But at least they break down fast. Remember to use a biodegradable nappy bag too.
Good green alternative, though my compost/worm farm could not keep up with volume! Though it feels harsher than ecobots the tea leaf extract seems to be kind on bub's skin and keep nappy rash at bay.
I cant believe the difference in my little girls Nappy Rash.... I have tried every cream and Nappy on the market even Cloth Nappies and i couldnt get rid of her nappy rash ( 0 - 4 months old!). I then brought Moltex Eco nappies and after I took off the first nappy the nappy rash had faded and by the time i changed her second nappy the rash was gone and has been ever since! Also has been great over night too no leaks!!! wouldnt go back to anything else now and would recomend to anyone.
Havent leaked yet even over night
Biodegradable so kind on enviroment
When my baby was born, I tried a few different brands of environmentally friendly nappies. I found the Moltex Oko refreshing after having used a mainstream brand (with plenty of perfumes, dyes and chemicals) while at the hospital. It was reassuring to use something that was chemical free on a young baby. This is probably why there was no nappy rash. The absorbency was reasonable, given the lack of polyacrylates, though I am not sure if the nappy could absorb a larger volume (eg overnight) without leaking. These nappies are definitely a goo...d option for the environmentally aware parent. Environmentally friendly; no nasty chemicals; does not leave elastic marks on the legs; no nappy rash while using these. Mini size too big for a newborn but then baby outgrew this size fairly quickly; tabs not velcro so loses stickiness easily (eg if you had lotion on your fingers while doing up the tabs); does not fit a slim baby as well.
I love these nappies! They are a better option for people who are concerned about the effect of disposable nappies on the environment as they have : 100% biodegradable lining, 100% biodegradable packaging, 40% biodegradable inner lining and are made with more than 50% renewable resources from controlled cultivation. My baby also didn't have any issues with nappy rash. While more expensive than the generic brands at the supermarket, it was worth spending a bit more for a good product that did not have as big an impact on the environment. I would recommend these nappies.
Absorbent, no issues with nappy rash, environmentally friendly.
More expensive than other diposable nappies
A great environmentally friendly nappy. I try to help the environment when I can, and because these are so absorbent, I use them for night time. Never had any leaks after 12 hours except once when I folded the back down (my fault). I haven't used these nappies very often during the day because my baby is still a little on the small side (6.5 kg) for these nappies. I would definitely recommend these nappies to anyone looking for an eco-friendly alternative.
Excellent absorbency, good for the environment
A little bit pricey and not as soft/comfy as other non-eco friendly brands
These are fantastic nappies that I highly recommend. They work effectively without any leaks, comfortable for my baby with no skin irritation or rash. Great piece of mind knowing that you are using a product that is made from sustainable components with a reduced impact on the environment during both manufacture and once it has been used. Moltex say that you can even compost components of these nappies (not that I have tried this). Despite the extra expense it is comforting to know that you are not contributing as much to landfill.
These are definitely not the cheap option when it comes to nappies but given the amount of nappies a baby goes through in its lifetime they make me feel better about using disposables. We investigated washable nappies as well, but the amount of water they require for washing put us off (being in the middle of a drought I just couldn't get myself to put the washing machine onto the highest water setting AND do a rinse cycle) so this was the next best option we found for being vaguely environmentally friendly.
- Great fit around the legs, no lea...
