Nappy Competition

So, I am very excited, here is the first ever giveaway on this blog!  I have been lucky enough to be able to use washable nappies without the upfront cost as a friend generously donated me her system, this is your opportunity to have the same opportunity but by winning a brand new system, that contains enough nappies that you could make it from birth to potty without ever needing to buy another nappy!  Imagine the saving, and imagine the benefit to the environment!

This amazing prize comes from my friends at Nature Babies who sell very lovely washable nappies of many types along with all the "stuff" you could ever need to go with them.  The sell wraps, nappies, pins and even (and a pack of these are included in the prize) vest extenders, to help those vests last for longer even though there is extra bulk underneath them.

So, what does the prize include, I hear you ask! You get 24 prefold inserts: enough to keep even the most nappy intensive baby going strong and 3 Essential One Size wraps that will suit any baby and should see them right from birth to being toilet trained! Also a pack of 3 vest extenders, which do exactly as they suggest!

To win this amazing prize:

T&C - all entries must be recived by noon on Monday 20th June and the winner will be drawn by an independent person and announced on this blog by noon on Tuesday 21st June.  The prize will only be mailed to a UK address.  The nappy wraps may differ from those shown.


  1. I would love to win this prize, what a great giveaway! I am hoping to use real nappies this time around although I'm not sure how the stay-at-home dad will cope with the extra washing! All of the wraps are so lovely but I think I like the gingham one the best. :)

  2. I would LOVE to win these nappies! My husband and I are moving to Malawi with our 5 months old baby girl so we are switching to washable nappies. We have so many things to buy so winning these would make a HUGE difference. My email is and I love the jungle print wraps :) Many thanks x

  3. I just posted a comment on the wall for Nature Babies and 'liked' it, wasn't sure whether to post a comment there or here so did both :) Helen Lawson

  4. Fantastic giveaway! I like the purple spots wrap best.
    I am @mummykins82 on twitter.

  5. I follow you on twitter already :-)

  6. I've tweeted the competition too @mummykins82

    Wasn't sure if you wanted a comment to show I've done those things but I thought best to be on the safe side!

  7. I would love to win these nappies, they would be super helpful as we only have size 1 washables and it wont be long before we need bigger ones!
    I like the jungle print wraps as they are colourful and fun just like my Hope!

  8. I use re-usable nappies already but I have been thinking of getting some more... Getting them in and out of the wash means I am sometimes short on wraps or towels at the minute so have to resort to disposables which is not my preference at all! I struggled to keep up with breastfeeding so as well as the environmental bonus of using real nappies, the physical financial saving is a great blessing too as we are spending out on her milk which costs a fortune.

    I love the blue gingham pattern, great for boys or girls! Though my daughter was thought to be a girl the other day just because she was in a blue vest!

  9. Friend forwards me your link - I'm due with my first on July 6th (EEEK) and planning to use real nappies though can't seem to decide on a type, everyone seems to have their fave! Of the prints I like the leopard print one - very PHWOAR! And good for a boy or girl, don't know what we're having! Don't have twitter but email is
    Thanks much! Elisha
