Frequently Asked Questions
How do I sign up?
- Thoroughly read through our
process. You will then be
taken to our exclusive online store
where you can purchase your starter
kit and service package.
- Keep an eye on your email. We'll
send you instructions on how to
schedule your diaper demo.
We recommend setting up
service at least 5 to 6 weeks prior to your
estimated due date so we can
schedule the diaper demonstration 1
to 3 weeks prior to your due date.
If you're making the switch to cloth
diapers for a baby that has already
been born, please allow us a 1 to 2
week setup window. We will do our
best to accommodate urgent cloth
diaper service needs.
How does the service work?
What process do you use to launder
Once a week, you will receive freshly laundered and
folded diapers delivered right to your door.
Diapers are delivered in a water-resistant laundry bag,
along with a diaper pail liner.
There is no need for anyone to be home to receive the
delivery. If you live in a gated community or condo, please make
arraignments with your security gate/guard. We will do our best to work with
you on delivery options.
Once each week, the dirty diapers are picked up by our
delivery person and swapped out for clean ones.
Our diaper service uses 100% unbleached Indian cotton
More than half of our prefold diaper inventory is
100% organic unbleached Indian cotton.
Diapers are sanitized using an
extremely high temperature
laundering process in high-grade
industrial washers and dryers. No
chemicals or dyes are used in the
laundering process and our detergent
is an all natural, fragrance free,
non-fuming, non-toxic, and
biodegradable soap, free of ANY
harmful synthetic ingredients.
Will I receive my own diapers
If you prefer to receive the same
diapers back each week, there are
packages available. These diapers
will not be shared nor washed with
other customers’ diapers. You will
have an identification tag which are
always kept with your diapers.

service in the
Do I receive the same amount
of diapers each week?
No, diapers are in a rotation.
During the pre-birth delivery of
your start kit you will receive 80
diapers for a newborn. At the first
pickup/delivery, we will pick up all
dirty diapers and delivery another
80 diapers. This starts your
rotation of 160 diapers. On the 2nd
week of service you will receive the
same number of diapers we picked up
on week 1; on week 3 we will
delivery the same number of diapers
we picked up on week 2. Your
rotation will continue in this
manner until your baby moves into
the next size diaper, where the

diaper rash creams?
Diaper rash creams can be used with
our diapers without a barrier,
however we ask that you use one of
our approved diaper creams listed
below to prevent staining and build
up from forming on the diaper making
it repel liquid. One of the best
ways to ensure you don't damage our
diapers with creams is to make sure
you rub it into the skin gently
rather than leaving gobs / blotches
of cream sitting on the skin.
Although diaper rash is common,
especially among babies in disposal
diapers, it is not normal and
parents should find the cause
of the rash. Some common causes
include but are not limited to:
- Prolonged contact with
soiled diaper. Be sure to change
your baby regularly. I suggest
checking the diaper once per
hour and changing it at least
once every 2 hours -- especially
for newborns and young infants.
Poopie diapers should be changed
- If Mom is nursing, too much
acidic or allergenic food
consumption may cause rashes.
- Dry skin -- are you washing
baby too frequently, which
strips the skin of natural oils?
Could it be the wipes you're
using? Wipes solution?
- Teething or illness -- if
this is the cause, continue to
be diligent and things will get
