I started using cloth nappies when my son was 10 weeks old and quickly fell in love with them; the fun prints, the cute bum, knowing less disposables will go to landfill are great aspects, even washing them hasn’t deterred my enthusiasm.
Now my boy is a big boy who weighed just shy of 28lb by 9 months old and I could see him rapidly outgrowing these beautiful nappies. When I looked at the next size up I found there was much more limited choice available, they are more expensive and seem to rarely come up for sale second hand. There are a handful of places you can hire bigger nappies but they are few and far between and even less that post. If you want to try new or excellent condition ones you are completely out of luck.
This has inspired me to start up a business hiring out both brand new and excellent condition second hand nappies for those that weigh between 35-70lbs. The used nappies will be sanitised to a high standard so you can hire nappies without any fear of bacteria, ammonia or the resulting stains or smells.
The goal is to have both full time and night nappy kits available for hire in both 35-45lb and 40-70lbs weight ranges to support older children who still require nappies. Kits will be available to hire from September 2019.
