The Natural Nursery came up with the great idea to join in the the cloth nappy record event in Exeter. The idea is to get as many people changing their babies cloth nappies all at the same time accross the world. It was set up in America originally as the Great Cloth Diaper Change. Results are still coming in and we will let you know how the UK did when they are submitted to Guinness World Records.
‘It was a great way to publicise the work of Devon Real Nappy Project, meet some likeminded parents, and join in an International Cloth Nappy record attempt! ‘We wanted to put Exeter on the global cloth nappy map. We were few, but we made a difference’
The Natural Nursery was on hand to give advice about real nappies and we gave goodies away to the to partipants, including slogan bags promoting real nappies, reusable nappy liners and washable wipes. If you were not at the event and you want some advice about cloth nappies the Natural Nursery has a great advice section that can help you choose the best type of nappy for your baby and a fantastic range of real nappies in the Natural Nursery Online Shop.

A GROUP of toddlers and mums had a happy nappy time in Exeter as part of a bid to set a new world record.
Exeter was one of 400 locations across the globe where parents gathered in a bid to change the most cloth nappies at the same time.
Organisers were hoping that thousands of parents across the world would join in.
Exeter’s part in the proceedings was held at Rougemont Gardens, behind Exeter Central Library.
It was supported by the Devon Real Nappy Project. The project is part of the Don’t Let Devon go to Waste campaign.
Campaigners say using real nappies can save £500 on average compared to disposables, including washing costs.
They also argue real nappies are better for the environment and their use helps reduce the 28 million disposable nappies buried in Devon’s landfill sites each year.
