Reusable cloth nappies

Reusable cloth nappies offer an environmentally friendly alternative to single-use nappies. These items:

  • are comfortable
  • are easy to use
  • can save you money
  • can reduce the amount of waste you produce

Newport provides a cloth nappy library service that offers advice and tips on using these items. For a small fee you can hire a set of cloth nappies to trial for a month.
