How does GDB calculate my number of diapers and wipes to send?

    Your initial drop off will include a full supply of diapers and wipes (as you ordered), as will your second drop off. From that point on, we will count the number of diapers that we pick up dirty & deliver that number the following week, beginning a rotation system. If your numbers are lopsided, please contact us & we’ll sort it out.

    You will always keep any leftover clean supplies at home.

    How can we potty train with GDB?

      We recommend introducing the potty early, around 15-20 months. Once you are moving toward fewer diaper changes and are seeing more interest from your toddler, you can use our cotton training pants or our Nest paper training pants until you are diaper-free.

      Help, I forgot to leave out my dirty diapers!

        It happens, no sweat! You have two options:

        • Bring your dirty diapers to our warehouse for a drop off: 2021 W. Fulton St.
        • Hold onto your dirty diapers for pick up next week, we will pick up 2 dirty bags.
        We have a rash, what do we do?

          Bummer, sorry to hear this! If you have a rash you have a few options:

          What about the poop?

            We are in the business of dirty work and so poop is no new thing for us.  No need to soak, scrape, scrub, or spray the diapers before placing them in the pail.

            Once solid foods are introduced, we solely ask all possible ‘plopable’ solids go in the toilet before the diaper goes in the pail. You can use thin flushable liners to make this easy!

            To address the smell, we recommend our Pail Powder from Esembly. It works wonders and can be sprinkled directly on the diapers.
