Meet Real Nappy Fans Geoff and Ada!


Geoff and Ada (in a Motherease nappy). Thanks to big brother Harper for the photo!

Geoff lives in Homerton and has volunteered with the network providing information at events at his local children’s centre. He has enjoyed using real nappies with Ada since birth: “I like the simplicity of real nappies. They are adaptable and reliable – great when out and about, absorbent for nighttime – and result in much less rubbish”.

Real nappies ‘come into their own’ on holiday!

  
“I’ve just been on holiday in Kefalonia with Rudy and the real nappies came into their own. It was my mum’s idea to just take a few nappies and wash them, as the hot weather would dry them really fast. I bought these with my voucher, they look really nice and are all-in-one, so very convenient!” Jordan, Stamford Hill

 

“Lois showing off her Little Lambs wrap in a supermarket in France (left) where a mum called her nappies “tres jolie” and in a Bummis Swimmi at Botany Bay, Kent (right). Washing nappies on holiday was fine and the sun was amazing at drying nappies. We also did a four day music festival with minimal washing facilities with real nappies so I now figure we can go anywhere with them!” Tess, Clapton
