Why use cloth nappies

There are many great reasons to use cloth nappies (also known as real nappies):Cloth nappy baby

  • Babies that use cloth nappies are often potty-trained earlier than babies using disposables, and there's no greater risk of nappy rash.
  • Cloth nappies can save you money - by the time your child is potty trained you're likely to have spent less than you would have on disposable nappies - and if you have another child, it won't cost you any more.
  • Using them could halve your household waste.
  • They are simple to use and can be used with liners that are washable or flush away.

Trial kits

Unfortunately due to high demand the trial kit scheme is unavailable to new requests, this is as we are unable to add to the existing waiting list. Please check back in the future to see if the service is available.

Surrey residents can borrow a free trial kit containing a range of nappies from the Surrey Green Network to help you decide which suits you and your baby best. Trials last for at least two weeks and support and advice is on hand throughout your trial. For more information see our Cloth nappy trial kit information pack.

Please note you must live in and pay your council tax to a Surrey district or borough council to receive this service. You can check if your address is in Surrey by using the Surrey Interactive Map.
