You don’t have to spend lots of money when you start using real nappies.  Whether you are starting with a new born or at 6 weeks, 6 months or later you can find reusable nappies to meet your budget.

Our advice: work out how much money you will/do spend on disposable nappies per week.  If it’s £10 then if you spend £100 on reusable nappies you will be saving money within 12 weeks (to allow for cost of disposable liners, detergent and power for the washing machine).

Plus in some London boroughs you can get a voucher worth up to £54.15 or a real nappy starter pack.  To find out more visit www.realnappiesforlondon.org.uk

Pre-folds are cheap and can often be picked up FREE at NCT sales and on Freecycle.  They really should be the backbone of any nappy stash.  To find out why click here
