Also check to see if your local council offer a voucher or other incentive towards the cost.

What about the poo?
Babies who are exclusively breastfed - their poo is water soluble, so can go straight in your washing machine. This is also often true for formula fed babies - just check for lumps which should go in the loo.
Once they start eating solids, the poo needs to be removed before you wash the nappies - this is where a liner comes in handy.
Fleece liners are better for the environment, as they are reusable; they also have a 'stay dry' feel.
Disposable liners are NEVER flushable even if they state that they are *, but are particularly useful at nurseries, where staff can dispose of the poo by putting the liner directly in the bin.
