More about Mum & You
Mum & You are a team of almost 20 mums and dads who design and test the products they create – including nappies, wipes, skincare and accessories – with both babies and parents in mind. The team, who are lovely by the way, are constantly striving for better. Better for baby, better for parents and better for the environment. They use natural and sustainable ingredients and are certified with Leaping Bunny approval. They started in 2017, with the promise of making more eco-friendly products. Seeing the use of plastic on the rise they have developed nappies and wipes without plastic, and every month donate to The Hygiene Bank to help families in need.

Here’s what Mumsnet users have to say
The nappies were an amazing fit – so soft, loved the patterns and no leaks! My little girl seemed very happy in them.
I really like the hair and body wash. It was great to use one product for washing my son’s hair and his body. It smells lovely and made his hair really soft and shiny – his curls looked lovely the day after! He also wasn’t fazed when I was rinsing it off and it was going on his face which is great.
My baby is short and stocky. Most nappies either aren’t wide enough or are too long. These fit perfectly. I also liked the unusual pattern.
The hair and body wash left my little one’s skin so smooth and soft. The fact that we need just one bath product from top to toe makes things easier too.
I liked the wipes but loved the way the ingredients were described on the back so you could see what the ingredient did and where it came from. I also liked that there were only a handful of ingredients which was a massive difference to our usual wipes.
“I would recommend this whole range to anyone”
My son has sensitive skin with patches of eczema so I am quite particular about what we use on his skin. The Mum & You Hair and Body Wash was fine on his skin and he had no reactions or dry skin after use. It was an easy-to-use dispenser and the smell was lovely and fresh. The foam was also fun for him to play with.
I do feel guilty using wipes at times and have tried a cloth for hands and face. These wipes feels like a good compromise for us.
The nappies were great. Best ones I’ve tried in 16 years of being a parent. They’re super absorbent too – not a single leak, including ‘that night’ where my daughter slept for 13 hours!
We’re doing our very best with making more eco-friendly choices – something that isn’t so easy with a newborn. These wipes take away the ‘mum guilt’ of using regular wipes. We’re total converts.
The hair and body wash is great and a little goes a long way.
