Introducing Nappychat

‘It’s never too early to talk to your baby – they are ready for stories from birth’ - Dr Jessica Horst, The Word Lab, Sussex University

Each Mum & You nappy features Nappychat – making every nappy change an opportunity to talk to your baby.

Feed your imagination with our playful tribe of characters that appear on every Mum & You nappy. Create magical stories for your little ones, to bond with your baby at change time and beyond.

Every bundle of Mum & You nappies comes with a set of Nappychat flash cards to inspire stories and create fun memories with your baby...

Develop your baby’s language skills with Nappychat

Mum & You consulted development experts like Dr Jessica Horst, Director of the Word Lab at Sussex University to help us nail Nappychat.

It is never too early to start talking to your baby, and it doesn’t matter what you talk about either. They love your voice, they love you and they will love to listen to your stories!

The amazing National Literacy Trust https://www.literacytrust.org.uk inspired Mum & You Nappychat from the outset. The experts there (all called Claire!) know just a thing or few about how babies learn language. We’ve fed their insights straight into our Mum lab.
