Meet real nappy fan Jena!

“Me and my daughter Freyja with our real nappy stash! Initially we decided to use real nappies for financial reasons but after attending the demo and reading about real nappies, we realised that we will be doing it for the environment also. We have not spent a penny on disposable nappies since she was born and we have not disposed any nappies that will sit for years in landfill. Using real nappies is fun and addictive and with the fun designs and colors, it can go with anything she wears!”

Jena also writes about real nappies on her blog: http://www.beadsbowsandprettythings.com

Meet real nappy fan Esther!

“I decided to use real nappies when I was pregnant with my first child in 2009. I can’t remember exactly what prompted my decision but once it was made I never looked back! The Hackney Real Nappy Network events made it really easy for me to claim the voucher and to gain all the information and support I needed to try, buy and use real nappies. Three children later I am still using the same set with Dominic that I bought online (second hand but hardly used) in 2009 and the prefolds and even many of the wraps are still going strong! I’ve added to my nappy collection by trying out new styles and brands for free thanks to the brilliant ‘Give and Take’ events in Hackney over the years and I have used my RNFL vouchers (all three of them) to replace worn out wraps and treat my youngest to some cute new designs.”

Meet real nappy fan Edouard


Edouard and Nathan at our Real Nappy Fashion Show

“We’ve been using real nappies with Nathan since the day we brought him home from the hospital. I’d heard all about the financial and environmental merits of using them already and the money-off voucher from the council really helped us to get started. Nathan was born in the winter so drying his nappies in the garden wasn’t an option – instead, we used a dehumidifier and that definitely helped us to keep on top of the laundry. It’s also much more environmentally friendly than using a dryer, so we would highly recommend it!
