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”.
