    Default Is this weird?

    Hi all,
    This might sound stupid but my DS is nearly 10 weeks old!
    He started in the Huggies Newborn nappies 0-5kg but two weeks ago, he moved into Huggies Crawler nappies 6-11kg.
    I wasn't aware that there was a nappy size in between those two called Huggies infant 4-8kg until my Mum bought a box of them around.
    The infants do fit but I don't think he will see through the whole box!
    I currently have about 6 newborn sized nappies left over and can image I will have way more than 6 infant nappies left over!
    I don't have any friends or know of anyone who could use these so I was thinking about taking them to the hospital and giving them to someone in the maternity ward!
    Is this weird?
    What have you done with the left over nappies?

    They likely won't take them if they're not sealed. It's worth calling to ask though A women's shelter is another option.

    If the above places won't take them, I'd offer them on your local buy/swap/sell group. I regularly see people giving away unused nappies on there.

    I'm not sure where you are based but you could maybe try the nappy collective. Google them, they do collection drives twice a year and they get distributed to support organisations for people in need.

    It's very kind of you. A women's shelter would also appreciate spare nappies I think.

    Thank you everyone, I can't believe I didn't think of a shelter or collection group!

    I think anyone would do it wouldn't they? You would either give them to someone you know or someone who would use them rather then throw them out!

    I'll certainly look into all your suggestions!

    Thank you Olive Oil!

    And for anyone else who may read and/or participate in this thread, I have just looked at www.thenappycollective.com and they only do collections for two weeks, twice a year and the next one is very soon.....6-20th May and again in October.

    So, if you have a LO that is growing as fast as my DS then i am sure that in the next 4 weeks, you will have some spare nappies!

    Thank you, I have just found the details of a local women's shelter which is only 10 minutes away! I will call them on Monday to see if they accepted open but unused disposable nappies, otherwise I will use the nappy collective this time round!
