Real nappies

Switching to real nappies

We encourage the use of reusable nappies. Babies get through about 5000 disposable nappies in their first two and half years, compared with 25-30 reusable nappies.

We can offer shopping vouchers if you buy reusable nappies. We can provide up to £25 or half of the amount spent, when you send in receipts.

Alternatively, we can send a free real nappy sample kit worth £25, including 2 washable Totsbots Easifit nappies, several liners and instructions.
