Have you ever been curious about cloth diaper delivery? It turns out it is pretty straightforward and cost effective, this day in age, and I’ve asked my local service to write a blog post about it! I know many parents struggle with the idea of using disposables, but can’t commit to washing cloth diapers at home. It turns out, cloth diaper services are a very convenient and affordable alternative!
Who runs this modern diaper service?
We are parents – just like you – who own and operate Calgary’s only LOCAL cloth diaper delivery service, Pumpkin’s Diaper Delivery!! Our names are Cayley and Steve, and we have enjoyed cloth diapering both of our littles, Lexi and Luke.
Special thanks to The Mama Knows for letting me give you all a brief overview of what our diaper delivery service looks like!
How it Works
On a weekly basis we come to your home and exchange your dirty diapers for a supply of clean! You do not necessarily need to be home for your delivery time, as we simply exchange laundry bags on your front step.
All of our packages include unlimited cloth diapers, a large laundry bag and, of course, the diaper pail to contain it all. There is also the option to add on cloth wipes to your delivery service for and additional $3.50 per week.
Our fitted diapers are designed with a fluffy fleece inner that helps baby to feel dry, while wicking moisture to the cotton/rayon center and outer microfibre side. Once the diaper is soiled you simply take it off babe and toss it into your diaper pail – no different than changing a disposable and tossing it
into a diaper genie!
As we use fitted diapers that do not have a water-resistant outer PUL layer, we do require the use of covers with our service. We retail a variety of different brands and covers can be purchased from us or any of your favorite cloth diaper stores!
How much does a diaper service cost?
There is an initial startup cost for our service, which varies from $38.99 or $110.79 based on what is included with each package. The latter price also includes pre-purchasing any 4 one-size diaper covers from our stock, as well as free use of our newborn size covers.
Your weekly fee for diaper service is $23.60 or $25.95 per week, depending on where you live in relation to Calgary (illustrated map on our website). This cost does not fluctuate unless you feel inclined to add additional retail items from our website!
We carry a selection of cloth safe diaper creams, swim diapers, wetbags and various other accessories for all of your cloth diapering needs. All products can be located under the shop tab of our website.
