Hi all

Have posted here as not sure where else to do it! I'm a regular poster but have NC'd as I'm revealing my home town!

DH and I bought nappies in bulk for our dd (13 weeks). She had a big growth spurt and so we have approx 120-140 (haven't counted exactly!) Pampers New Baby size 2 nappies that we no longer need. Most are in completely sealed multipacks but a few are loose. I have contacted charities, food banks, children's centres etc but no one seems to want them! None of my friends have DCs that would fit them.

Does anyone want them? If so please PM me with your telephone number and I can give you a call to arrange pick up. Thanks! thanks

Nappies, I hope someone can make use of them, and take them off your hands.

Me too! I'd hate them to go to waste but no one seems to want them! confused

I hope you find a good home for them.
Is keeping them for any future dc an option if not?

SweetPeaPods Sat 19-Jul-14 10:23:41

Meant to add where did you buy then? Some supermarkets will exchange them for next size up? Maybe not as many as you have but you could try more than 1 shop?

Gumtree?

Someone will want them surely, very nice of you to offer them OP.

I bought them online so not really an option. As they were part of big boxes full I think that they have the usual 'not to be sold separately' wording on them. Don't think it's an option to exchange/refund them.

After dd's birth I'm not planning on any more for a looooong time unless a stork can deliver it other house

TO the house that should have been!

Will try gumtree if no mumsnetter wants them!

Bumping for you, really lovely thing to do.

Daddypigsgusset Sat 19-Jul-14 10:51:45

Do you have a selling site on ebay? Nappies sell really well on ours. You'd get a few quid for them. If you offer them free, be prepared for ruder than rude people climbing over their own grannies for them.

Daddypigsgusset Sat 19-Jul-14 10:52:32

Selling site on fb I meant!

If you are still giving them away my lovely friend has a 6 week old who could make good use of them smile

Pampers - they're yours! PM me your number x

Pampersplease Sat 19-Jul-14 10:59:24

Thank you smile I'll send you a message now xx

Hurrah!

The poster's friend didn't get back to me so the nappies are still looking for a home. I seriously can't believe no one wants over 100 pampers nappies!?! confused

nappiesinBrighton Tue 22-Jul-14 12:03:26

Or does anyone know what I can do with them? If no one wants them for free I can't imagine someone paying for them via gumtree etc.

If charities, hospitals, children's centres and food banks don't want them, what should I do with them?!

have you tried the royal alex?
if not. what area are you in (pm me if you don't want to put it on here)

owainsmum Tue 22-Jul-14 12:11:37

Just seen your post, if you still have the nappies I've got a 10 week old baby girl who would make good use of them smile
