    So i go and contact the council thinking oooo i may get some kind of money towards reuseable nappies but instead they do a birth to potty pack which you pay £17 a month for 12 months. The nappies are Little Lambs...

    I have asked for the free trial and she is coming on Tuesday! :thumbup:

    Id prefer the AIO or pocket nappies rather than ones with wraps but im not sure why lol... worth a go :D

    Im stalking the cloth swap and sell though hehe but dont dare post incase you all pounce and realise nothing for sale and beat me up :rofl:

    That's a bit cheeky, what your council offer!

    I've got a £30 voucher towards them, have to spend min. £45 though, but still, 2/3rds off... There are a few outlets I can use them at. I've chosen somewhere online to get a complete birth to potty kit (bumGenius) so will have to spend £45 on - er - no idea - maybe reusable wipes and a bucket with liner!!! I'm sure I'll find a few cute nappies I can't resist though!

    I use Little Lambs and love them. I never got a council voucher or anything, can you get one at any point to use? I guess it depends on the council what you get like you said.

    I emailed my council to see if they had any incentives.. got quite a blunt reply saying more or less 'no we don't and we aren't going to either'...!!!

    maybe we should get a list of councils that do have an incentive and sticky it so new real nappy users can see it.

    I have no clue if Devon does or not any ideas anyone before I try to email them

    Yeah! I found out that Derbyshire gives you £25 back if you keep the receipts. You have to spend at least £50 to get it.
