Well whaddya know? Turns out, there IS a diaper service for the Pittsburgh area.
I was convinced there wasn’t. I searched the Yellow Pages. I did an extensive Google search. Nada.
I got in touch with a lady who sells cloth diapers in town, and she told me that A Little Behind delivers diapers to Pittsburgh.
This company is based in Morgantown, West Virginia.
They’ll deliver 80 diapers per week for $20, which works out to being about $0.25 per diaper. For less money, you can get 40 diapers per week for $16 (about $0.40 per diaper). You can get a different amount of dipes at $17, $18, or $19 price points. It includes prefolds, diaper covers (I believe the site said they are Pro Wraps), diaper pail, and deodorizing disk.
I’ll likely try using this service for a few weeks to ease ourselves into cloth diapering. It seems like a great way to try it out without buying a bunch of diapers initially. And by then, I’ll have a sense of how many daily diaper changes we’ll be going through, so I can better gauge how often I’d need to do laundry if I did it myself.
We’ll see how it goes, and then decide if we’d prefer to stick with the service or if it would be better to buy a batch of diapers and wash them ourselves.
Just wanted to let you Pittsburghers know that there is indeed a cloth diapering service for us!
