A real life meeting offers so much support

You don’t need to belong to a group to practise BLPT. However, many parents find it useful to share experience and support with other parents.

BLPT is growing exceptionally fast, so lots of new support groups are springing up around the country and beyond.

Check out our facebook page Nappy Free Baby

And our twitter account https://twitter.com/nappyfreebaby

www.bornready.co.uk was set up in 2010 to provide a comprehensive UK forum. Here you will find a sub – forum specifically devoted to setting up and organising EC meetings across the country.

You can also join a lively support group at EC UK on Facebook

 

In Real Life

Below are the details of real life groups in the UK. Some are already established, and some are the contact details of parents who would like to meet up with other parents in the area. (Email addresses listed below need to have spaces removed from around the @.) For more details visit www.bornready.co.uk
