Where Do I Place the Deodorant Disc?
How Many Diapers Will I Get Weekly?
The first 2 weeks you will receive a full order of diapers, Covers (if applicable) and wipes (if applicable). The number will be determined by the babies age and diaper Size. After your first two weeks, you will receive back only the amount of diapers, wipes & covers you sent back to us dirty the week before.
- Newborn diapers (white trim) – 80 diapers/week
- XSmall diapers (yellow trim, blue or orange) – 80 diapers/week
- Small diapers (green or natural trim) – 65 diapers/week
- Medium diapers (white trim) – 50 diapers/week
- Large diapers (blue or red trim) – 40 diapers/week
- Toddler diapers (dark green trim) – 30 diapers/week
You can request to add an additional 10 diapers/week for no extra charge in any size. Also we may automatically decrease you delivery quantity if you consistently have at least 20 clean diapers extra each week.
Our weekly flat rate pricing reflects the service of dropping off and picking up diapers weekly rather than the amount of diapers used and laundered. This helps keep our prices down as we don’t have to handle billing adjustments weekly.
If You are Not Sure What You Need...
I Already Have GDiaper Covers - Will these Work with Your Service?
How and when do I move to the next size up?
If the covers are fitting too tightly around your babies legs or waist then it’s time to size up.
If the prefolds are completely saturated, and possibly leaking (but you know the cover is fitting correctly) then it’s time to size up on the prefold – you need more absorbancy.
What is the Washing Process for Your Service?
We follow strict procedures to ensure the diapers are clean and sanitized. Diapers are triple rinsed/flushed, thoroughly washed in 160 degree F water temperature, double rinsed and then dried. In addition, we do add a disinfectant during the washing cycle. Between the high water temperatures and disinfectants used, you can be ensured that our diapers are 100% sanitized and safe to use on your baby. Lastly, the detergents and disinfectants we use are free of dyes, perfumes, enzymes, phosphates, softners and optical brightners.
According to the CDC Guidelines for Laundry in Healthcare Facilities: “Hot water provides an effective means of destroying microorganisms, and a temperature of at least 71 C (160 F) for a minimum of 25 minutes is commonly recommended for hot-water washing.”
“According to the Wilderness Medical Society, water temperatures above 160 F (70 C) kill all pathogens within 30 minutes and above 185 F (85 C) within a few minutes. So in the time it takes for the water to reach the boiling point (212 F or 100 C) from 160 F (70 C), all pathogens will be killed, even at high altitude.”
Tips to Remember:
- On pickup day, set out soiled diapers and wipes by 7am (or night before)
- If renting covers, fold down the Velcro tabs for laundering . If using cover laundering service, then place soiled covers in cover bag provided. Please do not place in the same bag as the diapers. They must be kept separate.
- If renting covers that we are not laundering, keep these to launder on own as needed (unless you are returning them for a size upgrade – then throw them in the SOILED liner in a separate bag)
- Separate disposable wipes from your diaper pail bag containing the cloth diapers
- Look for your Deodorizing Disk in your bag the first delivery of every month
- Review the ‘How to Fold’ video clip
When changing service, contact us no later than the preceding Friday.
