As a Mum of two children with a close age gap, it is safe to say that we have discarded a huge number of nappies over the last 3 years. Thankfully Ted potty trained not long after turning two, so we are now a household of just one child in nappies. That being said, I have always been concerned about the environmental impact of disposable nappies and I am always interested in solutions to this problem. I love the idea of cloth nappies but could never meet the initial financial outlay in order to do this, and I feel like it is quite a big commitment when you have two young children. So I was really excited when I heard about Kit & Kin, and their range of high performance eco friendly nappies.
Kit & Kin was co-founded by Emma Bunton, and what she really really wanted was to help other parents have access to the best products for their family. Unlike convential disposable nappies, Kit & Kin nappies are made from sustainable and plant-based materials which are kinder on the skin but also kinder on the environment. Every element of the nappy including the packaging will biodegrade in 3 – 6 years – a stark contrast from the 500 years it will take to for most other nappies. Kit & Kin are striving to help end our dependency on non-renuable resources, as well as being a member of PETA to ensure ethical testing of their products.
Arthur has been testing out their size 5 nappies and I have been really impressed with their performance and fit. We have had no leaks thanks to their natural high-tech absorbent core, even over night. They are super soft and comfortable and have not irritated his skin at all. I love the unique animal design on the back, which is printed with vegetable inks only and just add to the cuteness! The nappies feel luxurious and high-quality, not at all bulky and best of all – hardly any chemicals! Kit & Kin also do a range of gorgeous skincare products for mum and baby, biodegradable nappy sacks and will soon be launching their very own baby wipes. I have been using biodegradable nappy bags which I have found at my regular supermarket.
I really do love the concept of the whole Kit & Kin range, but it is fair to say it might not suit every family’s budget – which is to be expected with this quality of product. However, they do over a subscribe and save option, where you can save up to 25% and get free delivery. which makes this option much more affordable.
If you are a parent looking for a more ecofriendly solution when it comes to nappies, I think this is a great option.
