Want to try real nappies, but don’t know where to start? With Grow Up Green you can try before you buy.
If you live in the North East, Grow Up Green offers a cloth nappy trial service, giving you the opportunity to try before you buy. At the end of the trial you will know if cloth nappies are for you, and which brands and styles suit your baby and your lifestyle best.
It works a bit like a library. You can collect a bucket, one of each of the nappies we sell. plus a few others we think you should try, nappy liners, wraps, nippas, wetbag and washable wipes, everything you need to try real nappies for yourself.
At the end of the 4 weeks, the bucket and contents are collected (less any paper liners or sanitizer you have used).
A trial kit costs £20 to hire for a month if you collect or £25 if we deliver to you On collection of your bucket, you will receive a discount code to use in our online shop
Most of the nappies in our trial kits are “birth to potty” and for that reason we recommend waiting until baby is at least 8lbs before booking your trial kit.
We also have a limited number of newborn kits that will fit from 5lbs, these have just 2 nappy types in and are enough to use cloth full time from birth. These are particularly useful for parents who want to use cloth from birth and already have birth to potty nappies
If you have any questions during your trial don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help.
