HIRE KITS GET BOOKED UP APPROX 6 MONTHS IN ADVANCE.If date showing is AFTER your due date we will NOT be able to accept your order. Please check our other kits for availability.

Excluded from all discount codes

We have LOTS of hire kits across our hire kit ranges however demand is incredibly high and keeps increasing. Our hire kits are normally fully booked up 6months in advance. Yes that's correct 6 months in advance!  At the time of writing in July 19 many of our kits are now only available from Jan 2020 and Jan is filling FAST! To hopefully guarantee a kit is available for your hire period you should be aiming to order at the latest 12weeks pregnancy.  The website will show when the next hire kit period is available, a date may show sooner than 6months but it's likely that there is only 1 or 2 kits left for that period and the date can suddenly jump by several months by just one new reservation being placed. We DO NOT accept hire kit orders for delivery AFTER baby has been born as from experience you just won't get enough wear out of them.  We also aim to get them out before baby is born so you have time to learn how to use them.  If the date available is after your due date please check our other hire kits instead or keep an eye on the page incase of cancellation although this is VERY rare.     We understand it can make parents nervous buying anything before your 20 week scan. Please be reassured if for any reason you need to cancel your hire kit BEFORE it is dispatched it will be cancelled and refunded in FULL.   Once hire kits are dispatched the hire fee will not be refunded in part or full in any circumstances other than in cases in stillbirth/SIDS. Hire kits are only available for hire in the UK.

The Sandys hire kits cost:
85* hire fee + £100 deposit

On the return of the nappies the £100 deposit can either be refunded or used against a future order.
*IF you spend over £150 on other items with us you will also received an additional £30 credit from your hire fee.

The Nappy Lady Sandys XS Hire Kit contains:

  • 20 Sandys XS. This should allow you to wash every day and half to two days from birth.
  • 5 XS/Small Wraps

    This is enough for one baby full time.


    If you have Twins you should need to book 2 kits, they don't have to be the same type of kit.  At time of booking add details on your order that you have two kits for twins so we can confirm the most appropriate date to book for you and we'll arrange for a 10% refund on your hire kit.

You'll also need to buy:

  • Paper Liners if you'd like to use them. (Bambinex liners fit the best.)
  • Nappy Bucket/Nappy Mesh to store the used ones in.

    Even with buying these additional items the cost of using the Sandys will work out less than you'd spend on disposables!

The Sandys Hire Kit will probably not be brand new but will be in a good, clean, sanitised and hygenic condition, washed at every return by The Nappy Lady.

We expect that returned Sandys will have been used and washed according to our guidelines but not damaged. We do expect some wear and tear of course. On the return of the nappies please do not worry if they are stained as this is common with newborn/breastfed poo. Stains are easily removed by drying them on the line (or even a window ledge) in the sun for a day or two. If any nappies are returned beyond use, the deposit or part of it may not be refunded to cover the cost of a replacement nappy.

The Sandys XS  newborn nappies are ideal for the early weeks when standard size 1 nappies just seem a bit too big on a tiny newborn.

Sandys XS officially fit from 6-12lbs . At a RRP price of 9.99 per nappy this makes buying Sandys XS a luxury most people can't justify for a nappy that will only last a few months.  However i think everybody should have the option of using newborn nappies which is why we offer a hire service.  They are more absrobent than muslins and require no folding. Motherease is a well know and trusted brand sold by The Nappy lady for over 15 years so you're getting a quality nappy The Sandys secure with poppers at the side.   They are shaped nappies so they offer excellent containment and no folding required.

Once hire kits are dispatched the hire fee will not be refunded in part or full in any circumstances other than in cases in stillbirth/SIDS. The deposit will be refunded in full on safe return of the hire kit.

Extending the hire kit period.
Your hire kit period is for 3 calendar months from babies birth. If you need to extend your kit beyond 3 calendar months we will try to accomodate this depending on the hire date of the family after you but this can't be promised. If the hire kit is able to be extended this is an additional £20per calendar month. If the kit is returned late the extension fee will be automatically applied.


UK Delivery from £2.50 or Free options over £40

We have lots of delivery options for you to choose from. You'll be given the opportunity at checkout to choose your delivery method or option. The site will automatically choose the  tracked option for you initially as this tracks and insures your delivery. Sometimes when we come to pack an order, if it's unusually heavy, bulky or valuable, we reserve the right to upgrade your delivery method free of charge to another that's more secure. For example, we may upgrade your order from first class delivery to courier.

Working well
Saturday, 28 December 2019  | 

The nappies are working really well with our 1week old, we didn't start straight away as unsure with his cord,(but them may just have been us, rather than the nappy!) Highly recommend reusables and especially hiring the first size, we have bigger nappies from previous child, but it feels great the start earlier this time.

Loved it

Kit worked fantastically for us. It arrived early enough so that when our daughter was born unexpectedly at 36 weeks / 6lb2 we could use them straight away. Very easy to put on and straightforward to wash. I loved the simplicity of the design. We used Bambinex fleece liners to increase the absorbency. By the time our daughter was 11lb we were starting to look for her big girl nappies but this was an excellent introduction and a good service. Thanks

Perfect for the job

Does exactly what it says in the description: I never had a leak, nappy rash or any problems at all. I used them once my newbie had stopped pooing meconium and shes just about outgrown them now at 11 weeks. They arrived in good time, a couple of weeks before my due date. Also, they have completely converted me to Sandys as the poppers make fit completely fool proof and the absorbency means you don't have to worry if you end up changing at bit later than normal.

Great kit in perfect condition no stains or smells. They fitted beautifully from day 1 of our 7.2lbs baby. The kit arrived 5 weeks before my due date which was lucky as baby arrived 3 weeks early so we still had time to learn how to use it before baby arrived. Very simple to use and we've gone on to buy more Sandys in the bigger size as they worked so well for us. Great idea Nappy Lady!

Absolutely loved hiring this kit. The nappies were amazing quality and i was lucky enough to be the first hirer for a brand new kit. They were soft, super absorbent and very adjustable. We used them with bambinex paper liners but now i'm using fleece liners on my bigger nappies. We fell in love with the Motherease airflow wraps which came in the kit, so soft and beautiful prints. A great starter kit which has got us hooked on cloth.

I like the idea but in practise it didn't work
Tuesday, 2 January 2018  | 

Trying to be more environmentally friendly with reusable nappies however found these gave my daughter nappy rash within the first week of using them. Tried changing more regularly, tried using disposables inbetween reusable uses but gave up in order to clear the rash up. We even missed that she'd picked up thrush aswell.
Glad we rented before buying any. Not sure why the wraps have to be horrendous colours and patterns.

Sorry you didn't get on with the hire kit, sounds like something wasn't going quite right for you but we're always on hand to try and help sort issues out such as change routine, washing. You had a brand new kit as well. sorry you didn't like the colour and prints we try to send a mixture of unisex colours from the most popular ranges rather than just plain white.
