Real nappies at The Natural Nursery
Cloth nappies are the smart alternative to disposable nappies that can hang around for 500 years or more and become a real headache for generations to come.
Local company The Natural Nursery is one of the longest running real nappy sellers in the UK – when Arabella returned to her home County of Devon in 2008, she was surprised to find that there were no local cloth nappy advocates in in Exeter so she quickly set about informing and helping local parents via drop in sessions at her home, business warehouse and local baby and toddler groups.
Now, after lots of hard work, real nappies are widely considered to be smart move by hundreds of local families who realise the benefits of cloth nappies:
- Money saving
- Less chemicals on your baby
- Super cute and funky
- Easy to use and wash
- Good for the environment
