After a long break of cleaning up nappies I thought it only makes sense that I return with a review on the Kit & Kin nappies.
Kit & Kin is a nappy brand co-founded by none other than Baby Spice, Emma Bunton.
What’s wrong with conventional nappies?
When picking a type of nappy it is really important for us to be aware of the harsh chemicals and dangers of conventional nappies on your baby and the environment. You can read this article for more info on the dangers of nappies; I found it really useful.
What other types of nappies are there?
Many people opt for reusable cloth nappies which is great and probably the most sustainable and safest choice.
Unfortunately I personally cannot deal with cleaning up poop of a nappy multiple times a day nor have I got the time for it. Honestly mothers that manage this are like Champion Mums.
I opted for disposable nappies that were made using less chemicals and sustainable materials which makes it safer for my baby and the environment.
What makes Kit & Kin nappies different
A natural disposable nappy?
The first brand I tried was the Kit & Kin nappies. This brand prides itself on being kinder for your babies skin. They have created a natural hypoallergenic nappy which protects your baby from developing skin conditions like eczema and nappy rash. Woohoo!
Their nappies are free of Chlorine processing, latex, lotions, fragrances, most common allergens, phthalates, optical brighteners, or organotins (MBT, DBT, TBT).
They’re better to the environment
Protecting the environment, Kit & Kin use sustainable materials to protect the future resources of the world our children will be growing up in.
Their nappies are made of a chlorine-free fluff pulp harvested from sustainably managed forests and their front panels, tapes, anti-leak barriers and packaging are all made from an oxo-biodegradable material.
What’s more is that for every pack sold, Kit & Kin help fund the purchase of rainforest through the World Land Trust, helping maintain a vital eco system that provides clean air and life-saving medicines.
- 25% of all medications used globally comes from the rainforest and yet only 1% of the rainforest has been analysed for its medicinal benefits.
- At the current rate of deforestation, there will be no rainforest left in 40 years time.
My thoughts on the nappy
My initial thoughts were OMG how frigging cute are these nappies? They come in a a few different animal prints. I got the panda ones. They make your babies cute little nappy butts even cuter.
They are very absorbent. We had very little leakages and when I did have any it was down to rookie new mum mistakes.
They are super soft in comparison to conventional nappies. They don’t feel like plastic.
They are similarly priced to Pampers own version of a more natural and eco friendly nappy (Pampers Pure). They even have a subscription service which saves you money.
And I don’t feel bad about forcing terrible chemicals on my bubba’s delete bum or poisoning the environment when using them.
I would really recommend trying these nappies. I much preferred them to the other competing natural nappy brand in the UK, Naty nappy.
Kit & Kin also have baby wipes which are biodegradable unlike Water Wipes. I only really use wipes when travelling as I opt for using water, flannels and cotton wool at home.
