How does this work?

You apply for cloth diapers and if you are approved, we give you cloth diapers to use for your little one/s. It’s that easy! We will arrange for pick up and give you all of the information you need to care for your cloth diapers. When your little one moves on from cloth diapers, you can pass them along to another parent in need or return them to Babies Need Bottoms.

How fast are applications usually approved?

We will work hard to get your application reviewed within 7-10 business days.

How many cloth diapers will I receive? What brand/colors will I receive?

We include 24 diapers in each set. We cannot accommodate requests for specific brands or colors. We do our best to give full sets of the same type of diapers.

Can you ship the diapers to me or do I have to pick them up?

At this time, we are arranging for pick up only.

What if I receive the diapers, use them for a few months, and then decide I’m not cut out for cloth diapering?

Parenting is HARD! We understand. Even if you don’t plan on cloth diapering for years, we still encourage you to apply. Cloth diapering can be a temporary fix for temporary diaper need.

When you are finished with your diapers (whenever that is) you can return them to BNB and we will pass them along to someone else that needs them!
