More than 20 young mums and dads attended a cloth nappy morning in Hitchin on Friday to spread the word about the benefits of the old-fashioned system in a world where disposables might seem de rigeur.
The event was organised by North Herts Nappy Library, and held at Sun Street children’s play centre Secret Garden, which was celebrating its first birthday in the town.
Mum Izzy Timms, whose 10-month-old daughter Olwyn Peters was sporting a spotty cloth nappy, said: “I think they’re brilliant, but most mums are scared to use them because of the extra washing.
“I also came here today for more advice.
“My daughter is happy using them – she’s got a happy bottom!”

Proud Hitchin dad Rob Stedman, holding his nine-week-old daughter Poppy Stedman-Lloyd, said: “We went straight to cloth nappies for environmental reasons and to save money and we’ve never looked back.
“They’re easy to use and kind on the skin so there’s little or no nappy rash.
