FAQs

Diaper Support

Anyone in the state of Oklahoma qualifies for diaper assistance. While you are required to provide proof of income, proof of residency, and proof of child, no one will be turned away from our Permanent Diaper Assistance program.

Every recipient of the Emergency Diaper Assistance kit receives 10 diapers and a diaper bag. A recipient of the Permanent Diaper Assistance kit receives 40 reusable diapers and a reusable diaper bag. Depending on availability, a recipient may also receive reusable wipes and a travel diaper bag, but these items are on a first-come, first-serve basis.

You can receive 40 free diapers through our Diaper Assistance Program. Single-use reusable diapers (pocket diapers and all-in-ones, most like disposables) aren’t promised when you apply for diaper support, but you can certainly request them in your application. We’ll do our best to accommodate you based on our current inventory.

Diaper Service

Any resident of Tulsa county is eligible for diaper service. You may qualify for diaper service if you are outside of Tulsa County and agree to pick up your clean diapers on-site at least once a week.

Yes, you can provide your own diapers and receive a basic diaper prep (wash, dry, and sort). You can also rent your diapers from us and have us wash your rented diapers. Please visit our diaper service page to learn more.

Not always, but it could be. Your service fee is dependent on your income and number of service days per week. Service price ranges from $0 to $20 per week. If you know you will need PDR to wash your diapers, please apply for the Upcycled Diaper Service.

Short answer: yes. However, once a week service ($0-10 per week, depending on income and family size) requires 80 single-use reusable diapers, and you only receive 40 through diaper assistance. The only way you will be able to efficiently use our diaper service with single-use diapers is with our twice a week service, which can cost you anywhere from $10-20 per week depending on income and family size.

We have an industrial washer and dryer with automatically dispensed chemicals.

We use an enzymatic detergent, an oxygen bleach, and a pH neutralizer.

No. Please do not attempt to rinse the poop off of your diapers. All you need to do is place your soiled diaper in the provided diaper bag and we will do the rest.

Diapers

 Please refer to the videos below. While these videos are specifically describing the Thirsties Duo Hemp pre-fold and the Thirsties Duo Wrap, the tutorial is a great tool for any type of pre-fold/ cover combination.

 

We are currently only renting diapers from the USA-based brand, Thirsties. You have two choices of diaper type: organic all-in-ones and organic prefolds + covers. Watch a quick video on the two types below:

 

Upcycled diapers are diaper flats made from pre-loved t-shirts. Once a set of upcycled diapers are made, a parent only needs a few diaper covers to complete the diaper kit. These are the diapers we use for our basic, once per week diaper service. We often provide a set of 10 or 20 in our permanent diaper assistance kit as well.
