Are you interested in buying bulk nappies in Australia? There are online options for you to buy bulk nappies in Australia and save yourself some dollars. If you are interested in Eco nappies and buying them in bulk, read along to learn more about Eco nappies and the 4 eco nappies brands we trialing out.
Lately, I have become more aware of my environment, and I try to make more sustainable choices. Even though they are baby steps, every step is one, and I feel good making them. I enjoy my journey and sharing it with you.
So the next step in my journey is checking out ‘Eco nappies’. we use reusable nappies for my 12-month-old baby on daytime which is the most sustainable choice of using nappies, but at night I still use disposable nappies as we had too many issues with night time leaks.
Why trying Eco nappies?
At this stage, we use Rascal Friends Nappies which I love, they are genuinely great, and I couldn’t say anything bad about Rascal+Friends and they are promoting no nasties in their nappies. However, I like to try out eco nappies where the complete focus is to use as less as possible synthetic materials like plastic and chemicals and find out-the performance.
We like to try out Eco Nappies and moving forwards we potentially make the change to biodegradable nappies for night time. Of course, the requirement is that this nappy has to be super leak-proof and the nappy need to have great wicking properties to move moisture away from the service to ensure babies’ skin stay dry.
We never used eco nappies before and wondered of it would be one of those products what sounds excellent but have low results such as leaks and poor performance (something we definitely don’t want).
We have trialed four different eco nappy brands and we share our experience today with you. We ordered four trial packs, (2 nappies per brands) and tested them on my 12-month-old baby (10kilo).
So let’s find out how eco nappies perform and of it word purchasing in bulk to save your self a dollar. First of all, what are Eco nappies?
What are Eco Nappies?
Eco nappies are nappies who suppose to break down quicker than regular disposable nappies, and therefore Eco nappies would be a more sustainable choice. However, this would only be true if disposed of correctly as the nappy won’t break down quickly when disposed of in an ordinary bin and ending up in the landfill. A biodegradable nappie doesn’t mean it is automatically a compostable nappy.
There is always the option to compost used nappies at your own property if you have the facilities to do so. The other option is using city composting facilities if they are available in your city. You can only use this option when there is a compostable logo on the nappy though.
Eco nappies suppose to be made more natural, and by using Eco nappies, you will potentially expose your baby to fewer chemicals and other toxic substances. However, it is not said that the nappy is 100 % free of chemicals. Check per nappy what they what their standards are.
I think when choosing an Eco nappy, we try to make a greener choice for our baby and our environment. To ensure you reach your personal goals, ensure to check how your nappies details and how to best dispose of them. After all, Eco nappies are not your cheapest option, so I think we like to see the benefits of our efforts after all.
In this review, I like to check 4 Eco nappy brands and will share my experience of the performance of the nappies with you.

We tried out Noopii Eco nappy on our little girl and we were delighted with this luxurious nappy….
No wonder Noopii eco nappies have named the luxe because they most definitely are. They are so soft and comfy to feel, and they are generously sized, which I like. We didn’t have any leaks or marks, and I was very impressed with this nappies. We love Noopii Nappies!

We tried out Muumi nappies, and also these eco nappies have kept my bubs bum dry, no leaks in the morning which is excellent. I do find the size not overly generous again, but I suppose I must be spoiled with my Rascal+Friends nappies who have a very high waste what I love.
Bambo Nature 5-9 Kilo
(Unfortunately, I had size three instead of size 4 to try Bambo nature out, but we will still test Bamboo nature, and I have been reading great things about the brand. We will take in consideration that this size is on the small side of our trial baby) We include the price for both size 3 and 4 to get a good compersion for the cost of nappies from the similar size we would initially use.

We tried out Bambo nature even though we should have the next size up, with did try the nappies out regardless. The size was okay; I also think though I would have had the next size up the nappies would not have been as generous sized as the Noopii.
The nappies have a cute bear on the bum, and they kept my bub dry overnight with no leak and a very heavy nappy in the morning. Bambo Nature is okay for us and a slim design for people who prefer a slimmer nappy. I am quite impressed with the eco nappies, and they have beat my expectations thus far.
Final thoughts on Eco nappies
Eco nappiest have impressed me, I was not sure what to expect, but they all performed and are good quilty nappies. The Moltex works out as the most expensive nappy with $0.99 ct per nappy, and I did find the nappies reasonably tight, especially as this nappy is suitable for the weight rang up till 18 kilos and my test baby was 10 kilo.
The other three nappies in the same weight range work out pretty much the same ranging between $0.70-$0.75. My personal preference are Noopii nappy. They were super soft and luxurious to feel, and they were generous in size, which I love. However, a minus point for Noopi is their bulk discount is not very impressive at less than $5,-.
Bamboo Nature’s, on the other hand, gives you a better deal when you purchase in bulk with a discount just over $20,-(on the time of my review). The other two brands, Muumi and Moltex give you approx 10,- discount if you purchase volume compared to individuals packs. (The price per brand in this review is already including the discounts).
If you buy bulk and spend over $100,-, free shipping applies but only to the following:
- Melbourne and all of Victoria;
- Hobart and all of Tasmania;
- Sydney, Gosford, Wollongong & Newcastle;
- Canberra and the ACT; and
For the other area’s in Australia, a subsidized delivery fee may apply for delivery. The fee is depending on weight.
So is it word while to make the change from regular disposable nappies to eco nappies? Well, it all depends on your personal opinion, circumstances and preference. I am super satisfied with the performance of Rascal + Friends nappies, and they also promise to be nasty free. The main reason why I am interested in trying eco nappies is to find out how the Eco nappies perform, and I potentially replace my current night nappies with a more sustainable choice.
‘If you would choose to use eco nappies for the reason to be more sustainable, just be aware that the eco nappies will still take a longer period of time to break down if sitting in regular landfill’
‘If you can get a hand on compostable nappies in Australia and have a compostable service in your city you could contact them if you can depose the nappies there. But unfortunately, at this stage, there are no certified compostable nappies available in Australia just yet. However, watch this space as we busy researching compostable nappies in Australia so this might change soon.
So there you go, just buying Eco nappy not automatically mean it perhaps as sustainable as you may have hoped, however, less plastic and chemicals are used which is a great bonus for baby and enviroment no matter what. Still, it is word thinking about how your nappy is going to be disposed of as this is a crucial part of the sustainable value. If the nappy end up in regular landfill, it may still take a longer period of time to break down. If you would consider composting your own nappies, be aware that biodegradable doesn’t automatically mean it is compostable.
Some food for the brains before you make the swop to Eco nappies. If Eco nappies might not be for you, but you still want to make a more sustainable choice, you can always consider reusable nappies, the most beneficial option for your wallet and environment and they look super cute on babies bum too. Soon we will be posting more information on compostable nappies in Australia, so stay tuned.
