“I started using real nappies on my first baby when she was nearly a year old. I was surprised how easy they were to use, and how much more soft and comfortable they looked for her than disposables. I was so impressed, I set up North London Cloth Nappy Library, which lends out different types of nappies to help parents try before buying. I’m now re-using all mine for my second baby, which shows they are economical too!”

Gabriel has used real nappies with his two children Valentin and Ava-Lucia: “I use real nappies to minimise waste and look after the world. I like the simplicity of prefolds as one piece of fabric can be used and adapted as the child grows. Also, it washes and dries easily and then can be re-used for other purposes once it is no longer needed as a nappy. My top tip is to use a paper liner. You can wash and then re-use these liners if they aren’t soiled!”
