Washable incontinence wear for adults and older children.

There's loads of really useful information about hip problems and how to avoid them on this site. There are good ways and bad ways to swaddle your baby. Some slings are much better for babies' hips than others - and the most widely available and commonest type is not the best.
Bulky cloth nappies are good for normal hip development - don't let anyone try to tell you the opposite is true!

- Oxford Sling Library
Most babies love being carried in a sling and research shows that being carried in this traditional way is good for them physically and psychologically. However, some slings are better than others for your comfort and your babies health. One of the most popular slings that is sold by a number of big retailers is not very well-designed for your baby's hip development. So seek advice before you buy a sling - talk to other mothers and check mumsnet etc. - and have a chat with the other mums at the sling library.
- Roll Out The Barrel
This charity sends rollable water containers to countries in Africa where people have no running water, so that they don't have to carry heavy water for miles. They can also send second-hand nappies. So this is somewhere to send your old nappies when your children have finished with them - as long as they're still in reasonable condition. Contact Hannah Wallis for more information - h[email protected]
A range of nappies that are available in big sizes for older children - great for very heavy wetters, older bedwetters and children with disabilities.
- Sustainable Wallingford
Sally first started offering Nappy Trials through Sustainable Wallingford with a well-used set of Motherease nappies. These were borrowed by numerous families in Wallingford until they were replaced by a brand new set of real nappies containing lots of different brands. At the time Sustainable Wallingford was one of the only places in Britain which had nappies for people to borrow. In 2004 our Trial scheme won the Real Nappy Awards and came first in our category. With the prize money Sally got together with Tots Bots and designed a teenytiny nappy to be used in St George's Ward at Wallingford Hospital. To this day new babies in Wallingford can wear one of the tiny nappies for their first few days of life. Whilst the nappy trial scheme is only loosely associated with Sustainable Wallingford now, The Nappy Shed and SusWal continue to work together to promote cloth nappies in the Wallingford area.
