Did you know that a baby can get through the equivalent of 12 wheelie bins of disposable nappies in just one year?!

If you're having a baby and are interested in how you can keep waste to a minimum, then it's certainly worth considering reusable nappies.

They've come a long way from the bulky terry nappies and big safety pins that some of us may remember from long ago.

There are plenty of brands out there to choose from - and feedback from parents suggests that they can be much more user-friendly than they used to be.

If you live in Leeds, check out the Leeds Cloth Nappy Library. Set up in 2012, they provide support to cloth nappy users and have a lending facility available, a great starting point for advice if you are considering to make the switch from disposable nappies to reusable ones.
