Real Nappy Meet and Give & Take @ Round Chapel Old School Rooms
Jun 26 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

We are back at the Round Chapel for our wonderful Meet, Give & Take event! The chance to meet and hang out with other local parents and babies using reusable nappies, as well as helping to reduce waste and save money by reusing nappies and clothing rather than buying new – everybody wins!  Our meet up coincides with the Round Chapel Old School Rooms Wednesday Playgroup which is a lovely group for under 5s so why not check it out.

Like a lovely jumble sale of preloved reusable nappies, baby clothes and textiles and maternity clothes, but everything is completely FREE!  Feel free to bring any unwanted CLEAN nappies or baby clothes in GOOD condition, to pass onto other local parents. **PLEASE BRING SEASONAL CLOTHING ONLY! (i.e. no Christmas outfits in summer please!)**

There is absolutely NO need to bring something in order to take.  Invite your pregnant friends to come and find free maternity wear and baby clothes, even if they’re not interested in reusable nappies! All very welcome.

If you have nappies or clothing to donate, please try to bring them nearer the beginning of the event so that they have a better chance of finding a new home on the day.  We are always available to receive nappy donations in advance too.

We will also be joined by some of the Hackney Council recycling team who can issue you with your FREE £70 reusable nappy voucher via Real Nappies for London (ID and proof of address & birth/matB1 required).

Mel from Wrap a Hug Sling Library will be on hand for sling fit checks and advice only. Contact Mel in advance directly if there is a specific sling you’d like to hire on the day.

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:

Volunteers are always needed at these events as they can get busy!  If you can come along and give us a hand, we are always so happy to hear from you.  No commitment or experience necessary, just get in touch!

Reusable Nappy Demo and Newborn Sling Demo @ Hackney Central Library

We have joined forces with Mel from Wrapahug Sling Library to offer the ultimate cloth nappy demo and sling information session!
Every month, we meet at Hackney Central library where Esther and Joy from Nappy Ever After will tell you everything you need to know about cloth nappies. Their friendly and informal demo is for anyone who is interested to learn more about reusable nappies, whether you are an expectant parent or you are already using nappies. All welcome!
The talk will start at 10am and last approx. 40 mins.  We will cover:
-the different kinds of reusable nappies
-the newborn stage
-washing guidance
-other local nappy initiatives.
Joy from Nappy Ever After will tell you about their fantastic laundry service and shop.
Thanks to Hackney Council and the Real Nappies for London voucher scheme, Hackney parents (pregnant or with a child under 18 months) can claim their FREE £70 nappy voucher on the day from a Hackney Council officer or online via
Following the nappy demo, Mel will offer a free newborn sling demo where she’ll:
– Show different sling options for newborns/small babies
– Explain safety and positioning
– Demo slings and explain how they work
– Show how to feed in the slings
– Answer your questions.
Where possible and if time-permitting, you may be able to try on a couple of slings after (please note that this is a demo and NOT a full sling library and not for 1-0-1 consultations; you will need to book a consultation at the Bethnal Green sling library if you need more time and want to try slings on. I can take a quick look at your own sling if possible on the day, newborns/small babies only for this session. There is no guarantee I will be able to help everyone).   Please contact Mel directly to make an appointment.
The sessions run monthly during term-time only.
