Their website is chock full of useful information about nappy libraries, getting started with cloth nappies, washing advice, and all sorts of helpful stuff! Well worth looking at if you are considering switching to reusables.

    We're also celebrating Real Nappy Week here at Little Green Narwhal! We're offering 10% off Bumble Bees cloth nappies, reusable wipes, cloth sanitary pads, nursing pads, and more.
