The thought might fill parents and would-be parents with horror but the fact is washable nappies have come a long way in the last 30 years.
Today’s real nappies are made of lightweight fluffy materials, are shaped to fit your baby comfortably and often feature colourful, funky designs. And nappy pins are a thing of the past with today’s designs having Velcro, plastic grips or poppers for easy fastening.
What’s more, using washable nappies, even alongside using disposables, can lead to huge cost savings being made as well as reducing the amount of waste going into landfill.
By opting for real nappies, parents can save an average of £500 per baby. Even more saving can be made by using real nappies for subsequent babies or by selling on your nappies after use. But it may be the initial cash outlay for real nappies that puts some parents off.
To encourage parents to overcome the cost hurdle, Bournemouth Borough Council is offering parents the opportunity to claim £30 off the price of real nappies with a minimum spend of £45. Parents can apply for a voucher beforehand to redeem against participating retailers or claim cash back (on production of an itemised receipt) afterwards, for example when purchasing from internet-based real nappy suppliers|.
Please note the following criteria must be met to receive the £30 incentive:
