THE DELIVERY SERVICE: On the same day each week our service will pick-up the soiled cloth diapers and deliver fresh prefolded cloth diapers in a re-usable plastic tote. Remove the cloth diapers from the tote and place near your changing table. After changing your baby, shake off any solid waste into your toilet. Please do not rinse the diaper as this promotes mold growth. Place the soiled diaper into the biodegradable bag that lines your 13 gallon trash can with a sturdy lid (not provided). On delivery day, remove your bag of soiled diapers and place it in the tote, then place the tote full of soiled cloth diapers in the pre-designated area. You do not need to be home for the exchange to occur.
DIAPERS: We provide your requested number of prefold cloth diapers each week (generally 5 dozen to begin with). You may add or subtract the number of diapers at any time for no additional cost. You will always receive the same number of diapers you return the following week which is the same number of diapers you used the previous week. Your babies diapers are washed separately so you will never receive diapers that are being used by someone else.
DIAPER COVERS: We provide 5 covers when you start your service, additional covers are available for a weekly rental fee of 2/$1. It is preferred that these be laundered with your regular laundry and line dried according to the manufacturers recommendations. (Do not put diaper covers in your dryer or they will no longer provide a waterproof barrier and will need to be replaced. The replacement fee is $7/cover for any covers returned to the service that are not reusable.) Diaper covers are available in several sizes from newborn through XL and are based on the weight of the child. Diaper covers can be exchanged through our service as your child grows as long as they are returned in reusable condition. We also have different sizes and designs for purchase.
DIAPER LINERS: Diaper liners make diaper cleaning easy, keeps baby drier, and are 100% biodegradable. All of your diapers will have a liner already folded into them unless you request differently. We ask that you dispose of the liner in the trash with each diaper change. (Although they are biodegradable flushing them down your toilet may clog plumbing pipes/septic lines.)
DIAPER PAIL: (NOT INCLUDED) We recommend using a regular 13 gallon kitchen trash can with a good lid. Many have the flip top lid making it hands free. This is not a necessity as you are welcome to use the large plastic tote as your diaper pail. Three washable diaper pail liners will be provided for your use, one per week and an extra for pick up day. Place the pail liner in the tote filled with your diapers for pick up.
An all natural pail freshener is provided to help control any odor.
WASHABLE WIPES: These are made of one ply of flannel with colored stitching around the edge. These can be rented through our service for an additional $4/month. Just toss them in with your soiled diapers and they will be returned fresh and clean the following week. The amount of wipes can be added or subtracted as needed. These are great teamed up with a reusable wipe bag for on the go. Homemade wipe solution adds the perfect touch.**
WASHABLE DIAPER DOUBLER: These are ideal for when you need additional absorbency. Use a doubler for heavy wetters, nap time, overnight, or any time you need extra absorbency. These are available for an additional $4/month rental fee. To use just place them behind your prefolded and lined diaper and the cover. When soiled, put them in with your other soiled diapers and they will be laundered and returned to you the following week. There are several varieties for purchase in our store.
