Real Nappies

Many people still believe that the only alternative to disposable nappies are the old fashioned terry nappies – nothing could be further from the truth.

Modern reusable or real nappies:

  • Are easy to use
  • Come in a variety of shapes and designs
  • Are made of natural fabrics or quick-drying, man-made fabrics
  • Have liners to catch any solid waste. Washable liners are available
  • Fasten with velcro/applix, poppers or Nappi Nippas
  • Can be washed on a 40°C cycle
  • Can save parents up to £600 on the first baby alone and more for any subsequent babies. (This takes into account the costs used for electricity, washing powder and drying etc) ...and of course , they are better for the environment.

Real Nappy Voucher Scheme

Down District parents are being offered a one off payment up to the value of £30 per application towards the cost of purchasing real nappies.
