Opt for a Cloth Diaper Service

Posted by Bridget on 1/7/2013 to Green Living

Cloth diapers are something that many people love the idea of, but are hesitant because the idea of washing the diapers every couple of days sounds like too much of a mess and too much of a hassle. If you are one of these parents, you should consider a cloth diaper service.

Cloth diapers are a great idea for parents that want to be a little less wasteful or have babies with sensitive skin. Disposable diapers are a lot of trash and a lot of wasted money for the parents – not to mention the potential diaper rash. But new parents especially just don’t have time to wash cloth diapers all the time.

Luckily, there is another option. This is called a cloth diaper service. When you sign up for a cloth diaper service, you get all the benefits of cloth diapering without ever having to do the washing yourself. Instead, the service drops off diapers to you that you place in a pail when they are soiled, and then they pick them up and wash them for you, replacing them with more diapers that are clean and ready to use.

Most often, a cloth diaper service will use cotton prefold diapers that are plain white and plastic diaper covers. Of course, if you want some color, you can purchase your own diaper covers. These don’t have to be washed near as often as cloth diapers and come in a variety of colors.

A cloth diaper service is a great idea that saves new mothers a lot of time. Of course, it will run you a little higher than just purchasing the diapers yourself, but when you consider the water bill and the time spent, it is not that much more and well worth the little money to save the trouble and still get all of the advantages of cloth diapering for your baby.

If you want to cloth diaper your baby, but you don’t want to wash them yourself, you don’t have to. You can pay for a cloth diaper service that will drop off clean diapers to you and pick up your soiled diapers to wash them for you.
