See all our diaper service options, including a Try It Out! option hereWe even offer 80 cloth wipes per week for an additional $5/wk!

HOW IT WORKS

We deliver fresh, clean diapers to your home (or daycare, grandparents house, etc.) the same day each week. We pick-up all your dirty diapers, professionally launder them, and then return the same number of clean, fresh diapers to you the following week. The delivery day just depends on your delivery address.

What do you do? It is easy! After you take a diaper off your baby, you will just put it into the plastic bag we provide. No rinsing, washing, dunking necessary! With modern fasteners and diaper covers with velcro, cloth diapers really are just as easy as disposables!

Then, on delivery day, set the dirty diapers outside by 8 AM, and write on the tag how many clean diapers you have left in your home. That's it!

HOW MANY DIAPERS DO I GET?

We aim to provide more than enough cloth diapers to get you through each week!

We provide 100 diapers on your first delivery. We provide another 100 diapers on your second delivery. Each week after that we will return the same number of diapers that we pick-up. So, there will be 200 diapers in rotation for you!

This example is for the X-Small and Infant sizes. For the Regular size, you would have 140 diapers in rotation, and for the Toddler size you would have 100 diapers in rotation.

WE PROVIDE THE DIAPERS, YOU PROVIDE THE COVERS

We provide 100% cotton prefold diapers. The waterproof covers and diaper fasteners are not included. However, we have a fabulous diaper cover selection (both new and gently used)!

In addition, we recommend purchasing a diaper pail, which is typically just a tall kitchen garbage can. We deliver the clean diapers in a plastic bag which can be used as a diaper pail liner in your garbage can.

Since the waterproof diaper covers cannot go through our industrial wash cycle, you will need to wash the covers at home. This is super easy, and most parents just wash the covers with their baby's clothing. There are no special wash routines for diaper covers.

FAQS

I AM EXPECTING... CAN I GET MY DIAPERS EARLY?

Be prepared with a Pre-Birth Delivery! We will deliver your first set of diapers 3 weeks before your due date for no additional charge! Alternately, you can stop by our store 3 weeks before your due date and pick-up your first set of diapers.

DO CLOTH DIAPERS HELPS WITH POTTY TRAINING?

From our experience, yes! Most cloth diaper users find their baby potty trains about 6 months earlier compared to babies using disposables. This adds an additional savings of several hundreds of dollars, along with the ease being diaper free!

ARE THERE ADDITIONAL FEES?

We try to make our diaper service as easy to use and with as little fees as possible. There are five fees that could possibly be charged:

$15 Fee for Loaner Diapers: If your dirty diapers are not left out one week, that is fine! We will put loaner diapers into rotation for the following weeks delivery for free. However, if diapers are not left out for a 2nd week in a row, we charge $15 to put a second set of loaner diapers into rotation.

$1/Non-Loose Diaper: We need all diapers to be loose inside the plastic pick-up bag. If a diaper is bundled inside another plastic bag, we will charge $1.

$3 Fee/Damaged Diaper: If we receive a diaper back that has been drawn on with non-removable ink or has been cut, we charge $3 to replace it with a new diaper.

$3 Fee/Non-Returned Diaper: When your diaper service ends with us, we do an inventory of all returned diapers. We charge $3 for each diaper not returned to us.

HOW DOES THE BILLING CYCLE WORK?

Our service is billed and payable in advance every 4 weeks (or 6 months if you choose the 6-month option). We charge your credit card on the Sunday before the following delivery week, if an amount is due. Billing begins with the first delivery of your diapers. We send an e-mail confirmation every time we charge your credit card. We do not issue refunds for unused weeks.

HOW MANY DIAPERS WILL I GET EACH WEEK?

On your first delivery you will get 100 diapers. On your second delivery you will also receive another 100 diapers. So, there are now 200 diapers in rotation for you. Each week after that, you will get back the same number of diapers that you put out the previous week. (If you are starting with the Regular or Toddler size, then the rotation system is the same, but you would get either 70 or 50 diapers instead of 100 on each of the first two deliveries.)

DO I NEED TO RINSE THE DIAPERS?

Absolutely not! Our diaper service really is as easy as putting a dirty diaper into a hamper instead of the garbage!

Our commercial laundering process will remove and break-down all solid waste. At the end of the cycle, there is nothing but 100% cotton, free from waste and detergent. Our commercial launderer tests their fabrics on a regular basis, and the diapers are specifically also regularly tested to ensure they are free from bacteria and detergent residues, while also pH balanced.

We do recommend shaking any solids into your toilet to help minimize stains and reduce odor throughout the week.

HOW DO I MAKE CHANGES TO MY SERVICE?

It is easy! If you are going on vacation, need a larger size, or need more diapers, just contact us by the end of Friday before the next weeks delivery. After you sign-up for our service, we provide you with a diaper service hotline number that you can text or leave a message! Plus, you can always e-mail, call us, or stop by our store!
