Nappies, Wipes and Changing Mats

N
appy changing is what motherhood is about – or so it seems at times. The trend to using washable nappies is continuing and the good news is that these are sold in nursery shops, bringing in more customers and more ££ into the till.

For many parents it's no longer the case of 'shall I use washable' but 'which washable'. A good choice is becoming more important. Selling a full set of washable nappies should be as important as selling a buggy or a cot!

The use of nappies is one thing that distinguishes humans from other animals. In ancient times they used leaves or animal skins. Swaddling bands were strips of linen or wool that were tightly wrapped around baby. By the 1500s, the nappy was changed around once every three days! By the 19th century, babies were wearing nappies similar to modern ones, but boiling nappies to clean them and reduce nappy rash didn’t become commonplace until the beginning of the 20th century. Goodness know what our ancestors’ bums looked like – undoubtedly red and raw!!! Waterproof covers made their appearance in the late 1940’s with the first disposable being launched onto the market in 1956. Progress was rapid with absorbency and fit being improved, with absorbent polymers being added in 1987. Around this time, the vast majority of babies were in disposable nappies.

Disposable nappies are highly advertised with the large amounts of space given over to them on the supermarket shelves but media interest in global warming, and all things environmental is pushing up the awareness that disposable nappies form a significant percentage of landfill rubbish. There still appears to be a need, however, to convince some parents that overall, using washables IS cheaper than buying disposables. A significant number of mums to be are put off by spending it in one go rather than spreading it out over two years.

Cotton nappies are now mainstream and fast becoming fashion items! It's not only about how well they work but how pretty baby can look. We have bright prints, block colours, even fluffy bums! It's all a very long way from the ugly plastic pants my kids were in!

All change – new products in the Muslinz washable nappy range

Consumer demand sees more products added to the popular Reusable Nappy Range for MuslinZ; perfect for parents looking to make an environmentally friendly choice.

At MuslinZ, we have seen a huge increase in demand across our Reusable Range over the past 12 months. The general public are becoming increasingly eco-aware and this is reaching every area of our lives; from plastic carrier bags to plastic straws, so it is no surprise that baby products are being considered too.

As a result, this year has seen the much-anticipated launch of our MuslinZ Washable Nappy Wrap which can be used with its Muslin Squares, Prefolds and Terry Squares.

The wrap, manufactured from USA PUL, also known as a cover or shell, is the waterproof element of a two-part nappy system and can be worn over the top of either a folded muslin square, a pre-fold or a terry square. It is the perfect accompaniment to the existing MuslinZ washable nappy range. The MuslinZ Washable Nappy Wrap is available in two sizes – for newborns up to the age of six /nine months (Size One) and six months up to potty training (Size Two). Both sizes have double gussets which are ideal for Terry Squares and are available in pure White and the popular MuslinZ Mint-Grey Stars. Prices start from £7.50 so it is an economical choice.

MuslinZ Prefolds are ideal used as an wrap insert and are extra easy as there is no complicated folding, simply lay into the MuslinZ cover. They are also very useful for potty training to give a little extra protection in training pants. Prefolds are available in White or Unbleached Organic Cotton and also come in two sizes.

All MuslinZ 70cms Muslin Squares can also be folded and used in the Nappy Wrap and this is a popular choice for newborns as it is trim, simple and very cost effective. The more traditional Terry Squares are unbleached 50% Cotton and 50% Bamboo Rayon with a choice of sizes for newborns to toddlers. Terry squares are soft and absorbent so work perfectly as an economical reusable.

The soft and silky Bamboo Cotton Terry Wipes are available in white or unbleached bamboo cotton. They have so many uses and make for an easy ‘just change one thing’ choice for people looking to reduce their single use plastics.

The MuslinZ range also includes muslin swaddles, dribble bibs and hooded towels.

Aqua Wipes - kind to newborn skin…AND the environment

Wet wipes are an essential item for parents and parents-to-be. From tackling nappy changing to cleaning messy faces, mopping up spills and wiping sticky fingers.

However, their existence is now under scrutiny due to the damage they are having on the environment and the realisation that, like so many other everyday throwaway items, they contain plastic.

According to Water UK1, the trade body representing the main water and sewerage companies in the country, wet wipes are not only responsible for a staggering 93% of blockages in UK sewers, they are also the primary component of the infamous giant obstacles known as ‘fatbergs’.

However, for parents who can’t be without their trusty packet of baby wipes by their side, there is an alternative! Aqua Wipes are the new fully biodegradable baby wipes created to be kind to the environment AND baby’s skin.

These revolutionary wipes do not use plastic-based materials and contain 99.6% purified water with an organic Aloe Vera extract formulation. Used by special care baby units, neonatal and maternity departments across the NHS and registered with the Vegan Society, Aqua Wipes are created with the environment in mind, while caring for even the most delicate newborn skin.

Dr Mark Little, Founder, Aqua Wipes commented: “When we developed Aqua Wipes we wanted to create a baby wipe that was different. By using a biodegradable fabric, we knew we could minimise the amount of cleansing ingredients used every day on a baby’s skin, which in turn would reduce the chance of irritation and allergies, while also being kind to the environment. In fact, the preservative we use in Aqua Wipes is a Food Grade preservative, approved for use in foods as well as cosmetics.”

Aqua Wipes are available in the following four pack sizes:

  • Single 64-wipe pack
  • 256-wipe Value Bag (4 packs of 64 wipes)
  • 144-wipe Value Travel Pack (12 packs of 12 wipes)
  • 768-wipe Value pack (12 packs of 64 wipes)

Take the plunge with Splash About’s award-winning swim nappy range

For well over a decade, Splash About has been the leading innovator at the forefront of the baby swim nappy market.

Its multi-award winning neoprene Happy Nappy is considered a best practice requirement by British Standards Guidelines for Baby Swimming, due to its effectiveness at preventing unwelcome faecal leaks in the pool. For this reason, it’s also the de facto swim nappy for swimming schools in the UK and internationally.

Innovation unpins the Splash About brand and it’s the unique ergonomic shape of the Happy Nappy which is key. Two contoured neoprene panels cup baby’s bottom whilst specialist-pressured fabric ribbing at the waist and legs provides a secure but comfortable seal to prevent leaks.

Reliable, reusable and fully tested by swim schools, who agree that this design, combined with a unique fitted but flexible gusset ensures that there’s no gaping and so any faecal matter stays securely inside this swim nappy - regardless of how hard baby kicks and twists in the water.

“Over the years we have seen many imitations of our Happy Nappy,” said Splash About’s CEO Bernadette Spofforth. “Our Happy Nappy range is synonymous with the most effective leak-prevention and the cleanest swim possible. The Happy Nappy is integrated into baby wetsuits, swimming costumes and board shorts, and is the no1 choice for stress-free baby swimming for swim teachers, swim-schools and parents alike.”

The new Happy Nappy is available from birth to 36 months in a range of beautiful chlorine resistant designs.
