Disposable Nappies: A Hello Charlie Cheat Sheet

Let's face it - it's hard to know what's even in a disposable nappy, let alone the questions you should be asking to find out whether it's truly low tox and eco friendly.

Your baby wears a nappy almost 24/7 for the first two to three years of their life. You want to do the right thing, so you buy a brand that says they're plant based, biodegradable nappies that have no nasties. But your baby ends up with a nappy rash, and you're left wondering what kind of chemicals you've wrapped around your baby's bottom day and night.

Here's the thing - manufacturers don't have to disclose the ingredients in disposable nappies. It takes hours and hours of research to get to the bottom of what's really in them, and as a busy parent, you just don't have the time.

What other parents have said about this cheat sheet:

"I find these info sheets so helpful! My mum was initially very skeptical about an 'Eco nappy' she's a tough audience but has come full circle and now recommends bambo nature to others. I'm so happy your store had such recommendations and products, that is how I discovered your sample packs, which we 'water tested' pre baby and then chose bambo nature." Belinda S

"Thank you so much for this! It's so great to see the breakdown of each brand and feel like I'm making an informed choice as this info is so hard to find and quite confusing. This is priceless, thanks again :-)" Tahlie J

"Thank you for putting together this exhaustive list! Really good to read. I've tried every nappy discussed in this blog article, so Hello Charlie sample packs have been a good source. This blog and the baby wipes one have been much appreciated." Stacey S
