Welcome to the Real Nappy Week Challenge Blog!

The following blog posts will be written by Vicki and her sister as they begin their Real Nappy Week Challenge and Share the Secret with you!

In the build up to Real Nappy Week Vicki saw our call to Share the Secret and contacted Go Real. She told us that she had been using Real Nappies with her little boy since he was about 3 months old, (he is now 2 and still wearing them) BUT her sister needed some encouragement to Go Real.

Vicki told us: "Her reluctance is mainly down to the fact that she works whilst her partner mostly looks after the children, and he is fairly against the idea. I'm sure if they both had the opportunity to try Real Nappies they would soon see the benefits."

To help Vicki show her sister how fantastic Real Nappies are we’re providing a full trial kit of nappies for them to use during the challenge. Vicki will be supporting her sister, providing advice and support (with a little help from Team Go Real!) and both of them will blogging about their experience right here!

My eldest daughter bethany has been helping with learning the different terry folds. She understood the instructions 'Go Real' sent me perfectly which shows if my 8 year old can do it anyone can! We practiced lots on her dollies then went for it on Aston. Bethany has made her own video demonstrating how to do the cone fold.

I don't think I got the nappy tight enough it was quite loose around the legs. It didn't help that Aston just wanted to lay on the bamboo square, putting it on his face when I was trying to fold it because he loved the feel of it, so I am sure it felt lovely on his bum!

Vicki hasn't used terries so she couldn't really help me but my mum used terries on both me and Vicki and spent 20 mins at work yesterday going through through the folds using a tea towel and how to get them tighter. I will keep trying them on Aston but I think my favorite nappies are the pocket nappies I got (Baba Boo and Smartipants) they are just as easy as disposables but much prettier.
