I run Real Nappy Life, the online shop and have slowly taken over two rooms of my house near the bottom of Gipsy Hill over the last year or so. This is only the start of what will become my dream.

My dream is to have a real real shop with a community feel, open for all to see reusable nappies up close and help get started with them. 

There will be a self-service café with cake made by Dalhousie and savoury snacks, and a few books and toys for little ones.

With a focus on the environment, there will be no disposable coffee cups or paper serviettes; instead we will have reusable cups and cloth napkins to use.

We will have trial nappies for you to try on your baby whilst you have a cuppa. These will be perfectly clean but preloved.

There is a back garden which will have space for older babies to play whilst you relax.

There will be space for groups to use this will be 20m square with underfloor heating, plus the garden, and available for all groups relating to parenting and mums including NCT classes, sling workshops, baby massage, yoga etc. Groups will be able to use the self-service café.

The shop will provide space to South London Nappies and support for the CIC including washing facilities and hirer demos.

I want it to be a community hub for supporting new and existing parents, a place where all can come to chill out (post covid restricitons).
