Switch for Six

Thinking of using real nappies, but not sure where to start? Let Real Nappies for London help you make the switch.

What’s it all about?

#SwitchForSix returns this Real Nappy Week 2018 to encourage parents to give reusable nappies a go in their nappy routine for six weeks. Along the way, parents will receive support and guidance from a network of parents, real nappy advisors, retailers and manufacturers.

Feedback from last year told us that parents preffered to know that they were starting or re-starting to use reusable nappies at the same time as other parents. If you would like to get involved, please register now to start your six week #SwitchForSix journey with other parents on Monday 23rd April 2018.

Real Nappies for London will stay in contact with the group by sending out a newsletter with useful tips and information. We would like parents to stay in touch to let us know how they are getting on by e-mail and on social media (Facebook, Instagram and Twitter). If you’re on Facebook please join the Switch for Six Facebook Group for on-going support.

How to get involved

  • Complete the sign up form now to start you six weeks on Monday 23rd April 2018. Switch for Six is open to parents with babies under 18 months living in the UK, who have not yet used real nappies or have stopped but want to give real nappies another go.
  • Buy a set of real nappies to get you started. If you have not already claimed for a real nappy voucher to help with the upfront cost of buying real nappies, and if you are eligible to do so, you can apply for a voucher here (RNfL voucher participating London boroughs only). Or you can find out what incentives are available in your borough by visiting your local authority website. Real Nappies for London recommends starting small by buying a trial pack consisting of a variety of different types of real nappies lasting for 24 hours. You can then build your set of real nappies over the six weeks, when you are ready to do so. Hiring a real nappy kit from your local Cloth Nappy Library can also be an option.
  • Show that you are taking part by posting a photo or comment using the hashtag #switchforsix, on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Don’t forget to share with us! Facebook / Instagram: @RealNappiesforLondon and Twitter: @_RNfL
  • Join the Facebook Switch for Six Group to ask any real nappy questions you may have. Questions will be answered by parents who have used real nappies, as well as by us and real nappy advisors, retailers and manufacturers.
  • We would love to hear your real nappy experiences. Simply write a short blog entry below or keep us updated on social media with how you get on.
