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!
