QUESTION: Can nurseries use them?
Asked by Customer on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Hannah, yes lots of nurseries use reusable nappies and since a lot of nurseries ask you to provide nappies anyway, this is very easy. You will need to provide something for them to be stored and transported home in. A large wet nappy bag is perfect!

QUESTION: What is the average start up cost?
Asked by Leanne on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Leanne, it really depends on which reusable nappy you opt for. To use our miosolo all-in-one nappy full-time, it will cost approximately £250 for a full birth to potty pack. To use part-time, it's approximately £80. Our miosoft two-piece nappy is a more economical nappy so full-time it will be approximately £160 and to use part-time, approximately £50.

QUESTION: what would you use to wash them?
Asked by Charli on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Charli, you can use your normal non-bio washing powder and can wash at up to 60 degrees. Do not use fabric softener as this can affect the absorbency of your nappies. We recommend using a nappy cleanser to clean and freshen your reusable nappies. Our miofresh is a star product which not only keeps your nappies fresh but is great for removing stains from bibs, clothing and bedding too!

QUESTION: Good Morning. Can you boil wash them? I am wondering about the stains
Asked by Charlotte on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Charlotte, there is no need to boil wash nappies. Most of the soiling is lifted off the nappy with the biodegradable liner and this will reduce staining to a minimum. Nappies can be either soaked in a solution of our miofresh nappy cleanser or this can be added straight to your washing powder drawer with your normal detergent. Wash at 40 or 60 degrees. Miofresh will keep your nappies clean and fresh and is great for removing stains from bibs, clothing and bedding too!

QUESTION: I was wondering, are real nappies bulky?
Asked by Martha on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Martha, they can be a little more bulky than a dry disposable, but when the disposable nappy gets wet, the gels swell and the nappy size is similar. Our miosoft two-piece nappy is designed so there is absolutely no extra bulk around the hips and our miosolo all-in-one nappy uses modern lightweight fabrics that are super absorbent but without the weight or bulk.

QUESTION: What are the main benefits of using real nappies?
Asked by Donna on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Donna, there are lots of benefits when using reusable nappies. The first is cost-saving, you can save up to £700 if you use reusable nappies full-time and can save even more if you use the same nappies on a second child. Reusable nappies really are better for baby as reusable nappies rely on highly absorbent fabrics rather than the chemical gels which can be found in disposable nappies so they are beautifully soft next to your baby's delicate skin. Finally, reusable nappies are up to 40% better for the environment. 8 million disposable nappies are being thrown away in the UK every day so opting for reusables can significantly reduce your carbon footprint.

QUESTION: How easy are they to change when you are out and about?
Asked by Sharon on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Sharon, you do have to be organised! But really changing a reusable nappy is very easy and is not much different from changing a disposable. You can use a reusable nappy bag (or nappy sac) and store the dirty nappy in there ready to transfer into your nappy bucket when you get home. The soiled liners, baby wipes etc can just be thrown away in the usual way. Our miosolo all-in-one nappies are really compact and since they are made from one piece they are really simple to store in your change bag ready for changing.

QUESTION: I am really keen to go for reusables for my next baby.

Asked by Nicola on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Nicola,
If you're using reusable nappies full-time then we recommend around 15 nappies. Both of our nappies are onesize so you can use right up until potty training. You will need some additional boosters when the baby gets bigger. With this amount of nappies you will typically need to wash every other day. It may be false economy to buy less and wash more frequently.
Where you keep your nappy bin is really up to you, some parents like to keep it in the bathroom whilst others near their changing table. We recommend using a nappy liner with your reusable nappies as this will eliminate the need to handle soiling. So once it's time for a nappy change, the nappy liner can be flushed or thrown away and the wet nappy stored in our lockable nappy bucket which conceals any odours. A handy tip some parents like to use is dipping a cotton bud in essential oil and placing it in the nappy bucket to keep their nappies smelling fresh!

QUESTION: When do I need to use liners and boosters?
Asked by Nicola on 15/04/15 10:17
ANSWER: Our mioboost (booster pads) are great for maximising absorbency overnight, for long journeys or when your baby gets a little bigger. Mioboost are made from superabsorbent lightweight microfiber material with a stay dry top layer. Use it on top of the nappy next to the babies skin (and then there is no need to use a nappy liner) or tuck inside the nappy. Many parents use a biodegradable nappy liner with every nappy change (however, this is option). The liner eliminates the need to handle any soiling and when it comes to changing simply flush or throw the liner away. We do not recommend using a nappy liner if you are breastfeeding.

QUESTION: Are there different size nappies that I would need? I am worried that the cost will be high if I keep having to buy more nappies.
Asked by Jenny on 15/04/15 10:18
ANSWER: Hi Jenny, we have 2 different nappy systems. The miosolo all-in-one nappy is onesize meaning that it is fully adjustable to fit babies from birth to potty training. Our miosoft two-piece nappy is still a onesize nappy (that can be used from birth to potty) but it has 2 sizes of nappy covers to go over the top for an extra snug fit. The covers come in sizes up to 6 months and 6 months +. For full-time use you will need around 15 miosolos OR 15 miosoft nappies and 3-4 miosoft nappy covers. The cost compared with using disposable nappies can be much less, especially if you have another child.

QUESTION: What would I need to get started?
Asked by Victoria on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Victoria, once you have decided which reusable nappy you like best you have two options; either you can purchase a full birth to potty pack which will include all of the nappies and accessories you need until potty training age or you could buy a smaller amount of nappies, some nappy liners (if you choose to use them, these are optional), a nappy bucket and laundry bags to store your nappies in between washes and some nappy cleanser to use when washing your nappies.

QUESTION: Can using these nappies save me money?
Asked by Laura on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Hi Laura, yes reusable nappies can save you a significant amount of money in comparison to using disposable nappies. On average using reusables can save you up to £700 (this depends on which/how many nappies you buy) and if you use the same nappies again on a second child you could see even more savings!

QUESTION: Hello, I am really interested in using reusable nappies, could you let me know how many nappies would I need for a single child?
Asked by on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: If you will be using reusable nappies full-time we recommend around 15-20 nappies (means typically you would need to wash every other day). However, we know lots of parents who use reusable nappies part-time alongside disposables which means you won't need as many.

QUESTION: Hi, I am currently 6 months pregnant and I was wondering if it is best to buy them before or after I have my baby?
Asked by on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: This is entirely your choice but some parents like to purchase some nappies so they have them to hand once baby arrives. You can start small and add to your nappy collection as your confidence grows in using them and it's always handy to have some nappies at home so you can start using them when the time is right.

QUESTION: Will reusable nappies prevent nappy rash?
Asked by Ann on 01/01/70 01:00
ANSWER: Chemicals against baby's skin is one of the main causes of nappy rash. Since reusable nappies have no chemicals which can be found in disposable nappies there is a reduced risk. Nappy rash can occur naturally when babies are teething but typically when using reusable nappies parents see significantly reduced nappy rash and sometimes none at all.
