Hackney Real Nappy Network

We are a friendly informal network of parents and carers who use and promote real nappies. We run regular events and demos to help people to make a more informed nappy choice and to raise awareness about the free nappy voucher scheme. Would you like a demo at a local parenting class or an information stall at an event? Or if you are already using real nappies then contact us to volunteer and help spread the real nappy love!

 

We are returning to in person events! Please register your interest via the Event Brite links.  All welcome!

Real Nappy Meet and Give & Take @ Round Chapel Old School Rooms
Sep 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are so pleased to be coming back to the lovely Round Chapel for our wonderful Meet, Give & Take event! The chance to meet and hang out with other local parents and babies who use reusable nappies, as well as helping to reduce waste and save money by reusing nappies and clothing rather than buying new – everybody wins!

Like a lovely jumble sale of preloved reusable nappy goodies and baby and maternity clothes, only everything is completely FREE!  Feel free to bring any unwanted CLEAN nappies or baby clothes in GOOD condition, to pass onto other local parents. There is absolutely NO obligation to bring something in order to take.

We will also be joined by Hackney Council officials who can issue you with your FREE reusable nappy voucher via Real Nappies for London.

Mel from Wrap a Hug Sling Library will be on hand for sling demos and hires. Book in advance if you would like a 1-2-1 session.

**Please do not attend if you have any COVID-19 symptoms or have been in close contact with a recent confirmed case THANKYOU**

We have also set up a facebook group to facilitate the buying/selling/sharing of preloved nappies locally HERE.

If you would like to donate nappies for this event but cannot make it on the day please contact us: info@hackneyrealnappy.net

What Hackney Parents Say

Tunde, Seng & Jonatán

“We like using real nappies as we try to be conscious about the environment and we think Jonatán looks great in the different designs too! We have enough prefolds to last a few days and four outer wraps (that we rinse after every use) so we have a very cost efficient system.”

Iva & Oliver

“I can’t resist using reusable nappies because they are fun & colourful. Also, they help with potty training and they don’t sit in landfill for hundreds of years!”

Edouard & Nathan

“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 benefits of using them already and the money-off voucher from the council really helped us to get started.”
