For the next month we're running a fabulous competition with Random House Children's books in celebration of the imminent royal arrival.

If you were a fan of The Queen's Knickers, then you will love Nicholas Allan's latest The Royal Nappy. Nicholas has kindly drawn up a template of the royal nappy that we want your dcs to adorn. Simply download the Design your own Royal Nappy template and get your child to create a stately nappy design. Then take a photo of the design and upload it to this thread. The comp is open until Friday 16th August and we'll announce the winner of £100 Mothercare voucher the following week.

Find out more about The Royal Nappy, access the template and other royal-arrival-themed activities that your dcs can enjoy over the summer holidays.

Each of my little ones wanted to design a royal nappy: Here is J's design - lots of jewels to protect the Prince's crown jewels.

Hopezibah Tue 30-Jul-13 22:05:58

Here is my middle son's design - colourful rainbows and patterns and shapes ...swirls, stars and flowers.

and finally my baby girl had a go. We've called her design "pom poms and pinkies" as she used pink pom poms and pink finger paint and did finger prints with her fingers (pinkies!). In her defence, she did do this BEFORE the new baby prince was born. But who said pink was just for girls anyway? x

ds aged 7. To the point really!

Nerfmother Wed 31-Jul-13 18:24:30

Ds age 5 designed this. His brother has unwittingly come up with a republican nappy. Might post if feeling brave!

Royal Nappy with boyish stripes, a crown and jewels by Grace aged 5.

This is 'Baby Bunting' by my six year old daughter. He has a little crown instead of a safety pin, to hold his nappy together.

The royal nappy by Mindy, who is (just) 3 years old.

She went for a historically accurate pink (It used to be the colour of choice for boys in Victorian times! wink) and even gave the newborn prince some jaundice for added realism...

Spirael Sun 04-Aug-13 15:10:57

Take 2...

Spirael Sun 04-Aug-13 15:11:33

Ahah, seemed to work that time. smile Apparently it doesn't like you previewing when posting a picture!

From my 7 year old daughter

Well timed competition - has given my DCs a morning of focus whilst I attend to their newborn baby brother. DS (aged 9) did this picture, and took it pretty seriously, looking up royal crests and logos, and having a go at copying some calligraphy as it "looked more royal" smile

DD (7) also loved designing a nappy, and they would both like to design some nappies that can actually be made into real nappies so they can see them on the Royal Prince, and also design them for their 2 week old brother.

Thanks to all those who sent in entries - we're sure Baby George would be proud to don any one of these fabulous nappies. Random House will be looking at all the entries over the next few days and we'll announce the winner on Wednesday 21 August.

florencebabyjo Fri 16-Aug-13 19:09:13

Sorry, but there wasn't a time deadline on this and it just said Friday so I'm adding mine all this evening as we've been away! Hope that's ok.
This is my 6 year old's complete with jewels and grapes if he gets hungry!

florencebabyjo Fri 16-Aug-13 19:55:28

This is Bella's, aged 8. She wanted a peaceful nappy to make baby George happy and send him to sleep for kate and William!

PiddlingWeather Fri 23-Aug-13 21:15:50

Was there a winner announced for this then?

Shaler Sat 24-Aug-13 14:37:11

I was wondering the same thing PiddlingWeather! Checked Winners' corner but can't see it there.

RachelMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 05-Sep-13 11:17:39
