One of the many decisions new parents have to make is whether they'll want to use disposable diapers or cloth diapers for their newborn. If they choose cloth diapers do they want to wash and launder them themselves, or do they want to try and find a good laundry service in their neighborhood. Well, it may be difficult to find a cloth diaper service in your city. They're becoming few and far between. But if you do have the opportunity to chose between then there's a few key points that you'll want to look for and questions that you'll want to ask. First, how much is the service going to cost? You'll want to cost compare between services. Next, how much work will you have to do as the parent. Do they expect you to rinse out the diapers and put them in special solution or just dump then in a bag and they'll pick them up? Next, are the diaper covers or rubber pants included in the price of the diaper service? And how are they laundering their diapers? What type of laundry soap are they using? Especially for infants that may have sensitive skin, this may be an issue. You may want to get referrals from your friends and neighbors who've had good luck with the diaper service in the past. That's the best way to find out the inside track. Oh and don't forget, you'll want to order them early so that they're there when you come home from the hospital with the baby.
