Nappuccino is the ultimate baby group. Friendly and informal, with tea, coffee and home baking every week.
What can I expect?
A warm welcome! Tea and cake, loads of natter and a chance to make some new friends…
Jen has all the nappy know how, she will show you how! feel free to ask as many questions as you need, you can take a free trial home to try out cloth nappies if you like. She also has lots of gorgeous nappies and accessories for sale right here in The Baby Room.
Gill, meanwhile, presides over the sling corner, and can help you to fit and use the right carrier for you and your baby or toddler. These are available to hire so you can take them home and try them, and (depending on the brand) she also has some available to buy.
Both Jen and Gill are experienced breastfeeding peer supporters, but as we are often busy with slings and nappies we try to make sure we have at least one other peer supporter at each group in case anyone needs some feeding support.
Wednesday – 9:30 to 11.00, 11.30-1pm and 1.30 to 3pm
PopInShop Friday 12.30-3.30
A little history!
‘Nappy Jen’ founded Nappuccino in Exeter in 2008 (so we must be due a birthday party soon!!).
Originally it was a monthly group at Heavitree Scout Hut. Exeter Sling Library became a regular guest in 2012. In 2014 we increased to twice a month, then thrice. In 2016 we went weekly.
With the opening of The Baby Room we were able to grow the group even more and provide all the lovely add ons in our fab space.
YES!!! We all have our own parenting journey and Nappuccino is a safe, judgement free space.
YES! We love to meet bumps and parents-to-be and are always happy to chat about slings and nappies and breastfeeding in advance of their arrival. You might also want to find out about The Pudding Club
YES! We love to meet families as a team.
MAYBE. The space is not particularly set up for older children so they may be bored. However, we understand that sometimes this is your only option when you have a new addition and need a sling, nappies or breastfeeding support. PopInShop may be useful if you just want to see us about something and then dash off to the park…
YES. Pre-covid, our sessions were drop-in, but now we are limited to lower numbers, visitors are asked to book via Exeter Babies website https://www.exeterbabies.co.uk/nappies/nappuccino/
