After just under two years of using re-usable I wanted to try and find a nappy that I can use when travelling or away for a weekend that was less hassle etc.. does anyone use the Nature Babycare nappies that are supposed to be 100% biodegradable now and if so can tou compost them?

i don#t think you can compost any nappies really, or, if you did you'd have to shred them up first. and you'd need a HUGE compost bin/area to cope with them.
plus you'd be composting human faeces (even if you could get most of it off first)

the moltex oko ones can be put in a wormery, but again you'd need a really large wormery to cope with them

I compost my Nature Babycare nappies. I must admit I only use them at night and in emergencies (usually use washables) so there aren't that many.

What's the problem with human poo? Only like having a composting toilet - the waste from those can go on your garden.

I thought Moltex were the only compostable ones.
