Have you tried this nappy hack?

Unsurprisingly, the life hack got parents commenting with a few sceptics but many being rather impressed. One wrote: "Oooh I need to remember this one," and another adding: "Genius x." A third joked: "This is about 10 years too late. Damn," while another admitted: "Really doesn't work for us. My baby is Houdini."

Many others simply tagged their friends in the post to share the hack with more people.

Changing nappies can be such hard work

On the topic of nappies, according to the Money Advice Service, the average baby will need about 4,000 nappy changes before they are potty trained, setting parents back around £1,875 if they buy own-brand disposable nappies.

Would you consider reusable nappies instead of conventional ones?

Reusable nappies have come a long way in modern times and there are many well known and highly recommended brands out there.
