Newborn kits are loaned out the month before your EDD for three months – each month our volunteer will get in touch with you to see how you're getting along with the kit and if you were ready to return yet. This means that you should have had time to familiarise yourself with the kit before baby arrives and also means you can use the nappies for as long as needed until baby fits BTP nappies when they weigh approximately 10lb
Please note that if you are a first time parent, with no experience in reusable nappies, we advise that you wait until baby is 10lb+ in weight and borrow a BTP kit rather than a Newborn kit for the following reasons:
- Firstly, having a newborn is tough! There are lots of new things to get used to after birth, and adding reusable nappies to the mix adds extra pressure.
- Secondly, we are having more and more parents returning the Newborn kits after 3/4 months unused for the above reason; this stops other families from using them.
- With this in mind, Newborn kits are designed for families who are already familiar with reusable nappies as a bridge until baby is large enough to fit BTP nappies, , although if you are really keen to still borrow, we will not stop you!
In order to borrow a Newborn kit, we will need to know your estimated due date (EDD) to check whether a Newborn kit will be available at that time.
Please note that Newborn kits are booked up months in advance on a first come first serve basis, and we cannot ‘squeeze you in’ for a last minute loan is the kits are already allocated.
Occasionally Newborn kits do become available at the last minute and are advertised on the Worcestershire Nappy Library Facebook page at that point.
