Parents living in the London Borough of Barnet with children who are less than 18 months old are entitled to a subsidy towards the cost of using real nappies.
Buy your own nappies to use and wash yourself and we will give you a refund of up to £54.15 on the cost of the nappies. You will need to fill out a claim form, and show us receipts, a copy of your child's birth certificate and proof of residency (a recent utility bill, Council Tax payment book or bank statement).
4 good reasons to try real nappies!
There are many reasons why more and more parents are now using real nappies, here's five to start you off!
- Easy-to-use alternative to disposables
Modern real nappies are shaped to fit your baby snugly. They can be washed easily at home or with a nappy laundering service.
- Good for babies’ skin
Made of natural breathable fabrics, they are kinder to baby’s skin and don’t contain chemicals or absorbent gels.
- Help the environment
One baby will use 5,000 disposable nappies, so using real nappies prevents unnecessary waste going to landfill.
- Save money
Get started with real nappies from just £54.15. Unlike disposables, they can be used for future children saving you money. There is no need to soak or pre-wash nappies, just wash at 60°C.
Real nappies don’t have to be an all or nothing commitment, you can still use disposables as well.
