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.
-troubleshooting.
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 www.realnappiesforlondon.org.uk/apply
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.

11.15am-11.45am approx: Sling demo with Q&As
11.50am-1pm: trying on slings
Timings are VERY approximate!
No need to book, just show up at 10am!
