My husband is an environmental consultant and did the research on best eco friendly nappies, he said that these were the market leader (closely followed by bambo) so we tried them first and have never had a reason to change. They fit beautifully and are very absorbent. We have had runs of leaking overnight but I think this is par for the course with a boy who still has one night feed and my friends report the same issue with the mainstream brands. Very sad that we have to temporarily switch to another brand because we are visiting America for 2 months!Read moreLess
Although we mostly use cloth nappies, when going away this is our "go-to" nappy. Like the natural components used and have far less chemicals in them than the average nappy. Although, unless you have a VERY big compost heap to put these on, they aren't going to biodegrade in the landfill (nothing does) so cloth nappies are still much more environmentally friendly.Read moreLess

I've been using these nappies since my daughters birth and have been very happy with them. She's never had anything near nappy rash and managed to contain 10 days worth of poo once!
We've recently started using Pampers overnight as we did wonder whether they did feel a bit too damp by the morning.Read moreLess

Fab, fab, fab. My dd has multiple allergies, and we can't use normal disposables as she gets bad nappy rash. I usually use washables, but on days out these are so easy, they don't stick to her skin like pampers used to and they don't have that horrible pampers smell. I cannot rate them highly enough.Read moreLess
"After using disposables with my first son, I fully intended…"
After using disposables with my first son, I fully intended to use washable nappies this time around... Until I found out I was having twins!
To soothe my conscience a little I thought I'd at least try a more ecological disposable nappy, but if I'm honest I fully expected them to be pretty poor in comparison to other disposables. I bought a pack of 52 Moltex Oko nappies in Midi (9lb - 20lb) and I was very, very impressed!
The main difference is the colour - as they are unbleached, they are light brown. Apart from that they look just like regular disposables and are shaped the same and feature the same re-sealable tabs. They seem comfortable for both my twins. I was impressed that the packaging is also fully compostable. I also found these nappies smelt better when dirty - as they don't emit the 'wet chemical' smell I have noticed with other brands.
Performance-wise they 'hold their own' well against the bigger brands like Pampers and Huggies in terms of absorption, however, one advantage Pampers have over them is that Pampers nappies actually draw soft breastfed poo away from the baby's skin whereas these aren't quite that sophisticated.
On reflection this seems a small sacrifice though for what are otherwise very good nappies that can be used with a slightly clearer conscience than other disposables for around 20p per poop!Read moreLess

"I have been using moltex since my daughter was about…"
I have been using moltex since my daughter was about one month - we used pampers before as Moltex seem only to go from size 2, rather than size 1 and the ones we had were too massive.
They have been just as good as the chemical-filled ones, and hold an impressive amount of wee! Highly recommended for those with an uneasy conscience, who don't want to go down the reusable route.Read moreLess
"This is now my second baby and I wouldn't use…"
This is now my second baby and I wouldn't use any other nappies. I used washables for my first and he developed horrendous nappy rash. I don't know whether it was as a result of this, but as soon as I swapped to moltex it cleared. My newborn (now 5 months) has never had any problems since moltex. Also I do find that although they are more expensive I think they are more cost effective as they don't need changing as often as the "commercial" nappies.Read moreLess

I used to use these at night, as I wasn't happy with DD in a washable over night, but now I just use them when away from home but still, wouldn't swap them for anything else. Soft, non-smelly, easy to get a good fit (apart from on a 6lb 11 newborn - had to use nature babycare for the first few weeks) and don't seem to irritate anywhere. Now if they could get DD to lie down and stay still...Read moreLess
"We use these alongside washable nappies, and have found them…"
We use these alongside washable nappies, and have found them to be excellent. They leak far less than the Pampers/Huggies that we occasionally use as the Moltex are not over-filled with the heavy gel that makes them sag and pull away from the baby's skin once they are even slightly wet. I also very much like the fact that they don't smell of chemicals. I recommend these to all new mothers, they're brilliant.Read moreLess
"They've been very good on LO's skin, no rashes so…"
They've been very good on LO's skin, no rashes so far. We get the occasional leak if a dirty nappy isn't changed immediately. They can cost not much more than leading brand disposables depending on where you buy them, internet search different companies for best price.Read moreLess

Just love these. I had never heard of them before I agreed to be a nappy tester for the Mother and Baby Awards and they are just fantastic. So environmentally friendly with no bleach next to your babies skin, stretchy and so comfortable with great results, no leaking. You should try these for yourself and they are worth the extra expense.Read moreLess

A really good alternative to Pampers etc. I'd like to use washable nappies but they simply haven't worked for me. These are slightly more expensive than standard disposables but worth the difference.

People seem to either get on or not with these-I suspect it depends on the shape of the baby!

"These 'eco-disposables' from Germany are unbleached, made from recycled plastic and have less cellulose gel than other brands". "Because they are made from unbleached cotton and contain fewer chemicals they are less likely to cause nappy rash", they're "excellent for baby's skin and the cost is comparable with brand leaders". Most found them "totally secure even from the most persistent twin trying to get her sibling's nappy off". " Another plus was that "they don't smell of chemicals as soon as they are wet" and "they're very soft". "I wouldn't use any thing else now".Read moreLess
"I tried washable nappies on my daughter but she was…"
I tried washable nappies on my daughter but she was really miserable in them and in the end screamed when ever I changed her. I wasn't happy about using disposables due to their chemical content and the fact that they hang around for so many years!
I therefore did some research and came across Moltex Oko, a German "eco friendly" disposable. I sent for a free sample and was so impressed I ordered 400 straight away!
They are light brown in colour as they've not been bleached and they don't contain any water absorbing gel/chemicals but they work just as well as pampers, which I did use whilst waiting for my order to arrive.
They are easy to fit just like a regular disposable, have refastenable (not sure if that's a word!)tabs and my daughter no longer screams when I change her which has to be a good thing!
They seem to be pretty competent at containing explosive breastfed poo, with only one or two leaks around the legs. This could be due to the fact that my daughter is long and thin, chubbier legs may be the solution to this problem. They actually seem more effective than reglaur disposables at stopping it shooting up the back as they have an extra bit of elastication in this area.
I suppose the only downside is the price but I'm willing to pay just for the peace of mind that my daughter isn't going to be sitting in chemicals for the first two years of her life! They come in at about 19p per nappy for the midi size (9-20lb).Read moreLess

These are perfect for your little one if they are allergic to latex, if you are worried about bleaching agents and whatever is in that gooey gel, and you don't have time for re-useables. Feel even better about their biodegradability by using biodegradeable nappy sacks (even the bag that they come in turns to mush). We've had no problems with them leaking and it has really helped with our son's eczema. The only downside is the cost but my little fellow is happy so that's all that matters.Read moreLess

great nappies for kids with eczema/skin irritations & reactions and for parents concerned about the environment, as they decompose in a compost heap rapidly (so long as not in a nappy bag). I have used them for 2 children & find them very reliable upto about 18-24 months when they no longer cope with nightime; Buying in bulk, if you have the space to store them, gives you comparable prices to pampers/huggies from www.earthlets.co.ukRead moreLess

I buy these principally because they are supposedly biodegradableand contain no nasties to harm my little darlings. However, by the time dd was about 1 year old they were simply not absorbant enough so had to switch to something more heavy-duty and chemical-laden. Now that I want dd to ditch nappies I have returned to Moltex so that she understands the sensation of feeling wet. In short, great when they are very little and being changed more frequently, but not absorbant enough from about 1 year.Read moreLess

"I found that after using Moltex for a while, if…"
I found that after using Moltex for a while, if I had to use a huggies or pampers nappy, I felt they were inferior, pampers seemed to be too thin. I didn't like the gel that they used, which Moltex does not use, or appears to be different. Ideal if you care about the environment but washable nappies don't fit in with your lifestyle or families needs, and never once had poo escaping or nappy rash, which my children had with other brands in the past. Could not leave child in nappy for more than about 4 hrs, which al of us may have accidently done at one time in our life. The worst that happens is that clothes get a bit damp (if your child drinks lots and nappy is on too long). I would rather that than their skin covered in chemicals in a warm damp environment. Found not only mailorder places to buy, but also health food shops and boutiques sold them.Read moreLess

Great if you want a totally biodegradable disposable with no bleaches or gels to harm your babies bottom. Some others aren't totally biodegradable and still have gels.

The best ECO disposable nappy I've tried yet! I get them from a mailorder company called Spirit Of Nature who have really competitive prices (check out their great website www.spiritofnature.co.uk)! I used Moltex Oko on both of my children (still using them on my daughter!) and found them brilliant. No leaks, no nappy rash (even though my daughter suffers from Eczema)and the nappy doesn't stink of chemicals when it is wet. They are definitely kinder to the skin and the fact that they can biodegrade in a worm composter means they are much better for the environment too. Although I used cloth nappies too when my daughter was smaller, I just got so stressed out as I was working part-time too. By using Moltex Eco I have all the convenience and comfort of disposables but without the guilt! Perfect! 10/10 for me!Read moreLess
"What a brilliant way to salve your conscience - as…"
What a brilliant way to salve your conscience - as if there wasn't enough pressure on you when you've just had a baby! These nappies are great, and don't come with that awful chemical smell you get with the "big" brands like Huggies and Pampers. They are extremely good as an overnight nappy, as they're super-absorbent. The pale beige colour is a little off-putting in a world that's generally bleached white, but it doesn't take long to get used to it! Our daughter has never had nappy rash when wearing the Moltex nappies - we LOVE them, it's just such a shame that they're still so expensive.Read moreLess

I LOVE these nappies. they are great in every respect. We have used them ever since dd was born and they are marvelous. They survived explosive newborn poo with only one small leak, she goes all night wihtout needing a change or being wet, and they are kinder to the planet than comventional nappies. A little more expensive, but personally think they perform better than Pampers et al, so worth it! Also, you can buy them on the web for next day delivery free of charge!Read moreLess

The only reason I bought these is because they are a bit more biodegradable than mainstream nappies. I found up to about size 3 they worked fine becasue up to that size you are changing fairly frequently anyway. After that I found to be them not so efficient. They are slightly rougher than other disposables, prone to getting a bit lumpy and certainly not suitable as an overnighter - don't hold enough liquid. In short they are fine probably for the first year to 18 months, thereafter you need something more heavy duty.Read moreLess

They cost a bomb, but I've given them high value because they're currently the nearest thing to a green disposable nappy. They're not, of course - the main thing that makes them greener is the compostable wrapping the nappies come in. Also they use less gel and are unbleached.
I've found them more reliable as ds has got older - the size 5 ones are less likely to leak than other major brands.Read moreLess

The new design that is out now seems slightly less easy to fit on to my daughter than the old ones - but that could just be because she has got bigger!Read moreLess
