Renee,

I’m disappointed our cloth diaper service (changing times diaper service) is going out of business in March. I can’t find another service in the Indy area. Do you know of one? The Honest Company has biodegradable diapers which we use on occasion. It’s not very environmental to wash our own and I’m overwhelmed as it is with a full time job and new baby. Do you know of any other local diaper service or someone willing to buy out this business? :)

Thank you,
Lisa

Hi Lisa,

Well, that just stinks! It’s sad to see a local business close its doors. Unfortunately, there is not another cloth diaper service in Indianapolis.

The proud parents of Toasty Baby offer Clothing Diapering 101 classes and they will soon add a Washing 101 class, but you still have to do the dirty work. Congratulations to Toasty Baby’s mom and pop owners on the birth of their second child this past week!

For those of you in Bloomington, Fort Wayne, and North-Central, North-East, and Southern Indiana, cloth diaper services are available in your area. For those of you in Indy who are tired of your boss’ sh…nonsense, maybe it’s time for a change to a business in baby poo.

If you’re skeptical on whether cloth diapers are the greener choice, consider these facts:

  • It is estimated that 27.4 billion disposable diapers are used every year in the U.S.
  • Disposable diapers are the third largest single consumer item in landfills.
  • Cloth diapers reduce waste for families with children in diapers by more than 50%.

The Real Diaper Association is a great resource for those interested in more info.

Piece out,

Renee

    I wanted to encourage Lisa to make & wash her own- really, you can rinse ‘em & store the dirty ones till she can wash them. Once she gets in the swing of things, she’ll probably wondered why she was reluctant to try it. And she will save so much money, plus all the good environmental things. Hang in there, Lisa, it will all work out in the wash! :)

    Forget the diaper service. We raised four children all on cloth diapers which I washed and, if the weather was cooperative, hung outside to dry. Once you get into the routine, it’s not bad at all.

    Make sure you dump out any solid waste and wash on sanitary (very hot). Be very vigilant of washing hands and other surfaces that may come into contact with fecal matter. The fecal-oral route is one of the most common, and deadly ways of transferring disease!! Happy washing :)
