DIAPER SERVICES IN METRO VANCOUVER
Happy Baby Cheeks Cloth Diaper Service was started more than a decade ago by a couple of moms with a vision. They wanted to provide a service that allowed families to experience the advantages of cloth diapering, and yet maintain some of the convenience that disposable diapers provided. Their cloth diaper service is simple: once a week they will drop by your home with fresh diapers and pick up all your dirty diapers. You choose between premium fitted or prefold options that are delivered and cleaned every week, while you keep the diaper covers and launder them yourselves.
Service Areas: North & West Vancouver, Port Moody, Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge, Mission, Richmond, Delta, New Westminster, Surrey, White Rock, Langley, Abbotsford, & Chilliwack.
Sauce Bottoms was conceived one day in the midst of a diaper change. With a son whose “saucy bum” constantly needed changing, founder Barbara thought that there must be a better way to make a child’s diaper years the healthiest, safest and most hassle-free experience possible. Thus Saucy Bottoms Cloth Diaper Service was born. It is a convenient, healthy and eco-friendly service that flows easily into your daily routine. Simply put your provided pail liner full of dirty diapers out on delivery day, and they will magically be replaced with your weekly delivery of prefold diapers, covers, wipes and fleece liners.
Service Areas: Port Coquitlam, Coquitlam, Burnaby, New Westminster, Surrey, Delta, Vancouver, & North Vancouver.
