I am writing this from behind a growing stack of boxes, all containing lots of gorgeous new nappies for 135 toolkits bound for the community midwives based in Surrey. Every time the postman calls I disapear further and further from view, but it is very exciting to see all the new designs and patterns and very amusing to hear Tara's squeals of enthusiasm when something catches her eye!
We will also be sending DVDs and nappy guides for the maternity wards and the midwifery students to ensure that the message really gets out there and we are really hopeful that this will increase awareness of Real Nappies generally and Surrey's trial kit scheme.
The Real Nappy Giveaway planned for Real Nappy Week is proving popular with many early birds trying to refer their friends already! Over 1,000 people visited the web page this month and so if that anything to by those nappies are going to quickly!
We are also looking for people to nominate reluctant friends to take part in a Real Nappy challenge. We'll provide the nappies, you provide the friend and the support to turn them into a convert and you both get 10 entries to our Real Nappy Week competition. If you are interested to try Real Nappies but don't know anyone who uses them we can match you up with one of our knoweldgeable and friendly Go Real members.
There is a real buzz this year about Real Nappy Week with loads of people getting involved. We very much hope that you can be part of it!
