I never got round to trying them with DS, have gone to look them up now and can't find them - did they fold?

Hempresto were made by a lady on the Isle of Wight..she also developed the Nappy mat - a change mat that poppered up over the legs saving you from wee fountains - useful for nappy free time, baby massage classes and so on. This was actually a lot more successful than the nappy system - which was a little like the Itti Bitti D'lish in that it came in sized wraps with popper in pad sets, but made of hemp/cotton and a fair bit mroe expensive as hand made in the IoW. The nappy never really took off but the Nappy mat did. Sadly she was diagnosed with cancer, (now treated successfully and in remission) and so she sold the nappy mat business, more than 2 years ago I would think.
It was bought by Helen who used to run a nappy co about 8 years ago and is now located in Hertfordshire somewhere.

Don't think you'll find any bar the odd second hand one now.
