Cloth diapering is ever-increasing in popularity because it is an organic, natural, environmentally friendly, and less expensive alternative to using regular disposable diapers. Kissaluvs size 0 cloth diapers are particularly great for newborns because they have a snap down section that allows the umbilical cord to stay clean and dry and because they fit 5-15 pound babies, perfect for the first three months of a newborn's life.

Many parents want a great cloth diaper for their newborn, but are hesitant to buy because the diapers will be used for such a short time. Because of this, some cloth diaper retailers offer cloth diaper rental programs.

One such rental program includes the following details:

  • $175 initial cost with a return of $75 when the diapers are sent back to the retailer. An $85 dollar refund will be given to those customers who opt for a store credit in lieu of cash. A rental agreement and care instructions will be provided along with your diaper rental.
  • The option of adding six additional diapers for $25.00 cost and $25.00 deposit or adding twelve additional diapers for $50.00 cost and $50.00 deposit.

When comparing the first three months of diapering your baby using disposable diapers versus cloth diapers, savings between $100 and $150 can be expected for those families using a cloth diaper rental program.

The terms of this particular cloth diaper rental program are as follows:

  • You will receive 24 used, unbleached Kissaluvs Size 0 cloth diapers. Additional diapers can be added as needed.
  • Use the diapers for a minimum of 3 months. Diapers can be used for longer, if needed, for just $33 extra per month.
  • Three Thirsties brand diaper covers are supplied. These must be returned with the used diapers.
  • Free shipping is included with the diaper rental. You are responsible for shipping charges for returns.
  • Diapers can only be rented to non-smoking households.
  • The renter must agree to use diapers with cloth diaper safe laundry detergent and diaper cream.
  • For expecting mothers, please place your order one month before your due date. The package will be mailed to you 1-2 weeks before your expected due date.
  • Damaged diapers will be charged from the deposit at the full sales price of a new Kissaluvs diaper. If the rental is not returned within five months without notification, your credit card will be charged an additional $100 to cover the cost of missing supplies.

While the Kissaluvs diaper rental program is very popular, the respected cloth diaper manufacturer, BumGenius, also offers a cloth diaper rental program for $50 per month for three months.
