The exhibitor turn out was fantastic, including Nappy Central, Just Fairtrade, Natures Purest and the Charnwood Real Nappy Project- we can all be seen again on Sunday 30th March at Brockshill Visitor Centre in Oadby, Leicester-hope to see you there!

The Lo-Down on Cloth Nappies

The Lo-down on Cloth Nappies……

‘What happened to the Terry squares and pins?!’ we hear you cry, ‘What on earth are these All-In-Ones, Pocket, and Birth to Potty fandangles?!’ – Well have no fear, once you’ve got your head around all the wonderful choice that is now available to you, you can have real fun when it comes to choosing what goes on your little’uns bum!

Traditional Terry Nappies

If the traditional Terry square is your bag, it’s hard to go wrong with this trusted favourite. Get yourself 15-25 flat nappies and a couple of Nappy covers to keep things waterproof. You can opt for the traditional pin fastenings, or go for the funkier option of Nappi Nippas.

Fitted Nappies- No Folding Required!

Want a two-part system of a nappy and cover but without the folding? Then Fitted Nappies are the thing for you. The same concept as a flat, but shaped so there is absolutely no need for folding. Fasten the nappy round the bottom, and wrap a Nappy Cover over the top to make it waterproof.

The Perfect Pocket Nappy

Want the latest in Nappy design? Welcome to the world of the Pocket Nappy! A nappy with which you are in total control of the absorbency, as you stuff them with inserts- the more you stuff (within reason!) the longer it’ll last. That makes these great for night-time use.

One-Size Nappies

Want an economical option, but something a bit more exciting than flats? Try the Birth to Potty option. As the name suggests, with a clever design, these nappies will fit your little one right through their ‘nappy stage’. So there’s no need to buy new nappies as your baby grows, saving even more money!

Want an easy-wee-zy Nappy?

A family on the go? Want an easy to use, super convenient option? Then All-in-Ones are the nappy for you! A single piece system that works in the same way as a disposable nappy, but instead of sending it to the land-fill when you are done, you wash and re-use it instead! Fab!

They are simple when you know what you are looking for, and collecting a nappy ‘stash’ is plenty of womens full-time hobby! Mum’s take great pride in their zebra print wraps, or custom embroidered AIO’s, or even their matching themed nappy and vest set! Nappies can be a clothing accessory all of their own, and many a mum is proud to have their babes sporting cloth nappies for all the world to see! So now you know the basics, get involved and see what fun you can have! You might just surprise yourself .
