One of our writers, Ellie, co-founded her local nappy library back in late 2012. Here, she discusses how it came to be and watching the library go from strength to strength.
Emma Stevens and I decided to set up a nappy library in October 2012, after finding very little information and support on cloth nappies in our area. We started with a small selection of nappies that we found at the local Oxfam shop and by contacting a number of cloth nappy companies for leaflets. We were overwhelmed by the generosity of many of the companies, who sent us a large number of nappy samples to get us started. Cheeky Wipes, Little Lamb, Bambooty and Gnappies where amongst the samples we received.
