Introducing Nappy 999 - the world's first on-demand nappy changing service

1st April 2018

We’re always looking for new ways to make parents’ lives easier - so today we’re launching ‘Nappy 999’ an Uber-style peer-to-peer service for nappy changing!

We’ve seen a big rise in the demand for nappy changing help through our platform, and are now offering Nappy 999 responders for all your nappy-related emergencies.

Available Anywhere, Anytime.

Each nappy change will cost £5 and we aim to have a Nappy 999 responder on-site within 10 minutes, anywhere within the UK. This includes the cost of a fresh nappy and the disposal of the soiled nappy.

Join our network today!

We're currently building our network of emergency responders, so if you are a childcare provider with an enhanced DBS check who would like to earn some extra revenue or a parent that just needs an occasional break, then head to our website to register today.

Is this a joke?

We originally came up with the idea as an April Fool in 2018 but after receiving over 400,000 views on social media and being inundated with comments from people who thought it was genuinely a great idea, we've decided to explore the possibility of launching the service for real!


We're the UK's largest online community of parents, childcare providers, schools and private tutors with over 2m members. Founded in 2009, we are a multi-award winning company. In 2012 we launched the world's first childcare search apps on iOS and Android and we were the first company to launch an Amazon Alexa skill.
