Real Nappy Week

To celebrate Real Nappy Week 2013 (13th - 20th April), Northamptonshire County Council is touring locations around the county talking to parents about washable nappies.

Real nappies, also known as cotton nappies and washable nappies, are the natural choice for little bottoms. Real nappies come in a range of soft, absorbent fabrics with easy fastenings like Velcro and press studs. They can be just as easy to use as disposables but with the added benefit being reusable. A simple 40 degree wash and your nappy is ready for another day.

By washing and reusing real nappies the average family could save £100s between birth and potty training. It also reduces the strain on the environment as a result of land filling disposable nappies. 

Investing in the right kind of real nappies is a big decision so why not 'try before you buy'. Our Nappy Loan kit is available to hire out free of charge for two weeks. The kit contains several different types and brands of nappies for parents to test out on their baby. 

To borrow the kit contact lfhw@northamptonshire.gov.uk
