Upcoming Events

Reusable nappy demo events, sometimes called nappuccino’s or nappy natters are perfect opportunities to learn more about reusable nappies. We recommend attending as a way of seeing all the different types and styles before you buy. You will be able to ask all the questions that you may have about using, washing and drying and receive impartial advice about all reusable nappies available.
