To celebrate Real Nappy Week (12 to 18 March), the Wiltshire Real Nappy Network is giving away a month's trial of real nappies to one set of lucky parents.
The prize – a free trial of a wide range of reusable nappies with a retail value of around ??70 – will be offered to the first baby born at the Great Western Hospital during Real Nappy Week.
Real Nappy Week is a great opportunity for parents to find out more about the huge range of styles available, and to get the message to as many people as possible.
The Swindon Real Nappy Network (SRNN) will be holding real nappy demonstrations across Swindon during Real Nappy Week to give parents a chance to see for themselves what real nappies are really like.

Local promotions during the week
Smooth As Silk on Cricklade Road are pleased to offer free patterns to make-your-own nappies and nappy wraps for Real Nappy Week
Local Swindon real nappy agents are pleased to offer 5% discount on all nappies purchased during Real Nappy Week.
To encourage parents to try real nappies, SRNN has been urging Swindon Borough Council to offer incentives to parents who currently use disposable nappies.
Real Nappy Week is coordinated by Women's Environmental Network (WEN) working with the Real Nappy Campaign. Funded by WRAP (the Waste Resources Action Programme), the Week aims to engage parents with a schedule of national, regional and local activities and enable them to make an informed choice of nappies.
