Are you interested in purchasing nappies in bulk? There are online options for you to buy bulk nappies in Australia and safe yourself some money. If you are interested in Eco nappies and buying them in bulk, then this article is for you.
Lately, I have become more aware of my environment, and I try to make small changes to become more sustainable. 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 this journey is checking out ‘Eco nappies’. I use reusable nappies for my 12-month-old baby on daytime, but at night I still use disposable nappies. At this stage, I use Rascal Friends Nappies which I love, they are genuinely great, and I couldn’t say anything bad about Rascal+Friends except that it is not the most sustainable choice. Therefore I like to try out some Eco Nappies to potentially make the change to biodegradable nappies for night time moving forwards. Of course, the requirement is that this nappy has to be super leak proof.
I never used eco nappies and was wondering if it would be one of those products what sounds excellent but have low results such as leaks (something we don’t want). I decided to try four different brands and share my experience today with you. So I ordered four trial packs, (2 nappies per brands) and tested them on my 12-month-old baby (10kilo). Do Eco nappies deliver and is it word purchasing bulk nappies in Australia to safe 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.

Moltex eco nappies are recommended for children suffering from eczema or have sensitive skin.
My review on Moltex- I did find this nappy not generous in size at all. Especially considering my babies’ weight is not on the top end of the weight scale of this size nappy. Also, the nappy didn’t feel extremely comfy, saying that it did do the job. We didn’t have leaks, and the nappy was heavily in weight in the morning and no marks on babies skin. However, Moltex is okay in my experience; it would not be my top choice.

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.
Conclusion of our trialled nappies, which one is our favourite?
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 option with $0.99 ct per nappy, and I did find the nappies reasonably tight, especially imaging this nappy is suitable for the weight rang up till 18 kilos.
The other three nappies in the same weight range work out pretty much the same ranging between $0.70-$0.75. My personal preference would be Noopii nappy. They were super soft and luxurious to feel, and they were kind and generous in size what I love.
So the other question to answer is, Is buying bulk nappies in Australia word while? A minus point for Noopi is there bulk discount from less than $5,- is not very impressive to me. And Bamboo Nature’s gives your better deal with a discount with just over $20,- when buying bulk(on the time of my review). The other two brands give 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 wile to make the change from $0.39 Rascal+Friends nappies to eco nappies? I am super satisfied with the performance of Rascal + Friends nappies, and the reason why I was interested in Eco nappies was to improve my choice to be more sustainable.
Making the swop to Eco nappies, means I almost double the price I am paying for my current nappy, that is quite significant, is it world while?
We have to look at the big picture to make a judgment of the eco nappies are that much of a greener choice. If non or far fewer chemicals are used, it is more sustainable for our environment and helps to minimize exposure to chemicals for baby.
The thing is that it all comes down how the nappy gets disposed of as well. If the nappy is more sustainable but not compostable and up in the regular bin it still and up on landfill next to your regular nappy not breaking down much quicker.
If you choose a fully compostable nappy and have a compostable service in your city you can use, or you can facilitate a compost system at your property to compost your nappies, you are on a win.
But only buying an expensive Eco nappy and chucking them in the bin after use might not be as beneficial as you think and you might think twice of it word your money. If you want to compost your nappies, remember that
So there you go, something to consider and think about 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 invest in reusable nappies, the most beneficial option for your wallet and environment and they look super cute on babies bum too.
