Bottoms up Diaper Service
We would like to use cloth diapers when our new baby arrives and are contemplating using a diaper service. The only one around seems to be 'Bottoms Up.' Has anyone used this service? What did you think? Could you use any diaper covers with the cloth diapers they provide?We used Fuzzy Buns previously and I really liked them. Would love to hear your experiences...

I use fuzzi bunz with my 8 mo. old and plan on using them with all my children. I wash them at home and not once have they not come clean. I highly recommend fuzzi bunz, just don't use diaper cream or fabric softners with them.

Hey J.. We have been using Bottoms Up since last August when our first child was born. It has been a very good experience. The company is professional, prompt, and the service they provide is excellent. I always look forward to getting the smelly batch out of my house and the fresh batch back! Our family is amazed that a compay will take away the poopy ones and bring them back sparkling white.
We looked into buying cloth ones ourselves like Fuzi Bunz, but we didn't want to wash them ourselves, so this is a great option.
Bottoms Up provides the cloth part itself. You can purchase a plastic wrap from them as well, it is called the "pro wrap" cover. They are great and 99% leak-free. They are pretty inexpensive -- you could buy one and see if you like it better / less than your fuzi bunz wrap.

We are have been using Bottoms up for about a month. Their service is dependable, and the price is comparable to disposable. We use the diaper covers they sell, but they told us that you can really use any type. When I called to set up service, the woman I spoke with was very helpful and knowledgeable. I highly recommend them!

We used Bottoms Up for about 4 months or so. I thought the service was great--reliable, no problems. It was great to put out dirty diapers one night and wake up to a bag full of clean ones. We used a few of their diaper covers and then I bought a few online(I can't remember what kind--but basically a plastic like or vinyl like cover). My husband never really got the hang of the diaper covers so he stopped using cloth diapers and then I decided it was silly if I was the only one using them, so we switched to disposables.
I think their diapers are pretty versatile, so you can use most diaper covers with them.

We have used them for 3 months now. We use bummies diaper covers from Be By Baby but any cover would work. It costs about $17 a week.
