Real Nappy Loan Kits

Buying real nappies can be a big investment, so knowing which suits your baby best will save you time and money in the long run. However with Recycle for Northamptonshire you can now try before you buy by taking advantage of one of our Real Nappy Loan Kits. 


New Born Babies

We are working with a local Cloth Nappy Library based in Rushden to provide new parents with newborn sized real nappy trial kits. These kits are suitable for babies aged from zero to around 3 months old. There are two kits available for free 2 week loan.

The Cloth Nappy Library is run by Sarah MacDonald on a not-for-profit basis. You can contact Sarah via email or by visiting the Facebook page to ask questions, reserve a newborn kit or get tailored advice based on your needs. Sarah also has a wide range of other nappies suitable for older babies and can arrange ad hoc loans based on your personal circumstances.

Older Babies

There are six kits available on loan from some libraries across the county, suitable for babies 3 months old right up to potty training. The kits are free of charge to borrow. The kits have been designed to provide you with a wide range of nappy choices. The kits feature a selection of all-in-one nappies, both flat and shaped cloth nappies in microfibre, organic cotton and bamboo as well as wraps. 

Brands include: Baba + Boo, Bambino Mio, Blueberry, Bumgenius, Charlie Banana, Close Pop In, Fuzzibunz, gNappies, Grovia, Little Lambs, Smartipants and Tots Bobs.

Please note: that the Real Nappy Loan Kits differ from each other and contain sample nappies from different brands. As we dont recall the kits often, as they are on loan most of the time, some kits may contain nappies which are no longer available to buy. We apologise for this but hope that the kits still act as a guide to using real nappies. Our kits are scheduled to be reviewed next year.

Our Real Nappy Loan Kits can be picked up free of charge from selected Northamptonshire libraries. You can currently borrow a Real Nappy Loan kit from the following locations:

  • Corby Library
  • Daventry Library
  • Towcester Library
  • Wellingborough Library
  • Kettering Library
  • Weston Favell Library
