real nappies

A photo session with Anna Moffat

When Thomas was four months old, I took part in the Real Nappy Project run by a local organisation, Changeworks. Operating within Edinburgh and the Lothians, they provide trial and lending kits so that parents can try out real nappies alongside ‘Nappuccino’ mornings where parents can find out more about using real nappies and receive support from a team of volunteers.

Thomas’ skin had been reacting badly to disposable nappies, and keen to save money I decided to give the trial a go. It took me less than two weeks to be convinced that changing to ‘real nappies’ was the right thing for us as a family. Sadly, the Council has changed it’s funding priorities and the future of the project is very uncertain. Changeworks are hopeful that the subsidies for the lending and starter kits will continue, but nothing is certain at this point. If you’re keen to try out Real Nappies, or attend one of their Nappucino events – now it the time to do it!Read More »A photo session with Anna Moffat

I really enjoy dressing Thomas and have a number of items in his wardrobe that I love but these are hands down my new favourite. Today I give you my top three reasons for dressing your baby – boy or girl – in Blade & Rose leggings:
