Using Our Diaper Service
Once your routine service begins, our delivery person will provide weekly delivery and pick-up right to your door. You do not need to be home for deliveries.
Diaper counts work on a rotating 2 week basis. The number of diapers you choose to receive is what you should always have on hand each week. For example, if you order 80 diapers, we will deliver 80 diapers the first week. The second week, we will deliver 80 more diapers. You will fill out your clean diaper tag telling us how many diapers you have on hand. Let’s say the second week you write down that you have 20 clean diapers. We now know you have 20 on hand plus the 80 we just delivered. That means you have 100 on hand. The third week we will delivery 60 diapers (the 20 left over from the last week, plus the 60 equals 80). So if you use more than your weekly amount one week that means you will be that many diapers short the next week.
We charge you for the number of diapers you are ordering, or renting, each week, not the number of diapers you use. If you consistently have many leftovers, please call us to reduce your weekly order, which will result in a price decrease. We will help monitor your situation with you so that you are receiving the optimal number of diapers.
We have two different sizes of our bleached chinese 4x6x4 prefold diapers, newborn and toddler. Usually babies move from newborn to toddler diapers when they are 15-20 lbs or soaking through newborn diapers. Newborn diapers are approximately 12″ x 16″, while the toddler diapers are approximately 14″ x 21″.
What to do with soiled diapers
Your clean diapers are delivered in a plastic pail liner. Use this bag to line your hamper. It is not necessary to rinse or wash the diapers, just throw them in the pail, inside the liner. Once your baby begins to eat solids, please shake off any loose stool in the toilet. Avoid using diapers as burp cloths to avoid mildew growth and stains.
How we work out how many diapers you need next delivery
We use tags to count our diapers, rather than having someone count each dirty diaper individually. With your monthly invoice, we will supply you with 4-5 tags with your name already on them. The night before your delivery day, count all your clean diapers. Then write this number on the tag and tie it to your diapers. If you forget to put the tag on the diapers, simply call or email and let us know your clean diaper count. If we do not hear from you, we will email you. If we still do not hear from you we will deliver 75% of your ordered amount the next week.
The driver begins his route at 6:00 a.m. so we ask that you make sure diapers are out by that time. Some customers choose to put their soiled diapers out the night before to assure a smooth pick up and drop off. Make sure you attach your clean diaper count tag to the top of the bag with the number of clean diapers you have on hand.
