Disposable Diaper Buy Back 2015

earthmonthsposiebuyback

We are doing it again!  Buying back UNUSED disposable diapers.

If you have been thinking of trying cloth diapers, this is a great chance to get some store credit towards your cloth diaper purchase, or if you have that half open pack of disposables that the grocery store cant take back, we will.

2weekssposiesinsta

What are we going to do with these disposable diapers you ask?  We will use them for a window display for a short time, and then we will donate them to Custer Road Church PISD School Age Parent program.  This program helps out teen parents in need.

Terms and Conditions

  • We will pay 20 cents per disposable diaper.
  • We will pay for a maximum of 50 diapers per family.
  • Payment will be in the form of store credit to Nappy Shoppe.  Total amount paid out per family is $10 ONE TIME in store credit.
  • Store credit to be used in the month of April 2015.
  • You are welcome to drop off more than 50 diapers in order to donate to the cause.
  • Offer valid from April 6th 2015 to April 30th 2015.
  • Offer valid in store only.
  • Diapers must be in a usable condition.  Open packets are fine.
  • We reserve the right to refuse unusable, dirty, mangled, etc. diapers.

This promotion is a one time payout per family of $10 maximum.  If you wish to donate more than the 50 diapers to the program, you may do so at your own cost.

Newborn Cloth Diaper Rental Program

newbornrentalbanner

Want to use cloth diapers with your newborn but all of the one-size options are a little too big? Do you want to avoid investing in a whole stash of newborn size diapers that they’ll just grow out of in a few short months? This program by Nappy Shoppe is designed for you! Not only does this it buy you a few months time until your baby is big enough to fit those popular one-size options, but it also gives you an opportunity to give yourself a test run with cloth to see if you’ll like it before investing in a purchase! This rental program is less expensive than both disposable diapers and purchasing a whole stash of newborn diapers.

How it works

Choose from one of our packages (reverse).

At least one month before your due date, sign up and pay for your chosen diaper rental package to ensure availability. Beginning two weeks before your due date, your package will be available to pick up from the Nappy Shoppe. You will be required to attend one of our Cloth 101 classes. Class fee is included in the package.

Use your diapers for up to three months. Return your items, clean, dry and in good condition. Diaper creams, detergents, flushable liners that may be in the package are yours to keep. (varies depending on the package chosen). You will receive $100 store credit (or $75 back to your card) to use on anything you wish in our store.

Diapers and accessories will be a mix of new and used. All new diapers will be washed and prepped for immediate use. Used diapers will have been cleaned and washed in our store washer. Any diaper or accessory that is defective or no longer usable during the rental period may be returned to the Nappy Shoppe for a replacement at Nappy Shoppe staff discretion.

Any diapers that are missing or returned in unsatisfactory condition will be charged to the customer.

FAQ

Can I choose my brands and prints?

Sorry, we choose. We have limited availability of various brands etc. We just ask that you choose boyish, girlish or gender neutral when you sign up.

Can I use my own detergent?

No. We ask that you use our detergent. If we find that another detergent was used and the diapers were damaged as a result, you will be responsible for the replacement of the affected diapers.

How do I wash the diapers?

We will provide you with washing instructions. We ask that you follow our care instructions. The internet is full of different methods, but we have found our methods to work in our water.

What if I want to keep the diapers when I am done?

You can do that. We will give you the opportunity to buy the diapers at market value when done. There may be an amount over the deposit that you may need to pay.

What if I lose or damage the diapers.

Any diapers that are missing or returned in unsatisfactory condition will be charged to you at the full price of the diaper.

Mum’s Group Thank You

Today Melissa H, one of our mums group regulars posted this to our little Facebook group.  Melissa has been coming to group for a year as you will read.  Melissa is the mother of Will who was born in September 2013.  I am sharing this with her permission. 

Melissa writes:

melissahA year ago today…
(Well not exactly, but…)

My husband and I share a car. Last year when he was on spring break and I had full access to the car, I finally got the nerve up to go to breastfeeding cafe at the Nappy Shoppe on that Wednesday. I was so nervous! And so late, as usual. I remember being so scared that all the women there would judge me for still having questions at five months. I was nervous they would think my hair looked dumb, that I was too dorky to join their probably very exclusive hippie club. Boy, was I wrong!

Thank you to all of the women there that day last year! Thank you;

  • Lydia for answering my questions.
  • Cheyenne for laughing when I asked if I was too late to join and making me feel comfortable even before stepping into that room.
  • Sarah C, for inviting me to sit next to you right away. (Even though it took me awhile to learn your name, I affectionately referred to you as Popular Girl in my head for months :)
  • Joy F, for offering to drive out of your way to give me a ride so I could be a part of the tribe on a regular basis.
  • Katie W, Nandita W, Christine S and Jojo S, for striking up conversations with me right away and being so friendly.
  • Michelle J, for complimenting me on the one thing I was incredibly insecure about :)
  • Sharni V, for making this group possible and offering up your space and knowledge so generously.
  • To all of the other women there on that day, and those that I met weeks or months later…

Thank you for being a part of my support team. For helping me figure out how I want to parent, and how to do that successfully.
For listening and reading, sharing and understanding. Thank you for being moms with me. I love you all!

So if you are nervous about stepping out and trying out one of our mums group, please don’t be.  Come join us.  We are all mums, and we love to welcome new mothers to the group. I am forever grateful that Melissa took the plunge and stepped out and joined our mums group.  Our lives are forever enriched by her making this big step. 

Why I do it – A special moment

Sometimes when I am stuck in the office doing the bookwork, trying to balance the books, trying to figure out the budget, working the long hours to make Nappy Shoppe keep going … Sometimes when I stick my neck out and take a leap of faith and sign up for another lease and expand into the space next door … I get rather overwhelmed and wonder why am I doing this?

And then a special moment happens, and I see why I do this.  Why I do this for so little monetary return. The emotional fulfillment from this business is high.  And today I am watching one of those emotional moments unfold.

One of our regulars is being induced today.  She has a one year old.  And she is on her own.

And from our Mama tribe they step up.  The Mama tribe is what we call our regular group of mums who attend our mums groups.  This tribe has formed from the mums groups and is an amazing group of women who support each other.

mamatribe

Today two of the girls have stepped up to become this girl’s birth people.  To help be her advocate to help her try and get the birth she wants.  Then step up more of the tribe to watch the three one year old’s who need care while these three girls are in the labour and delivery room.  One of the tribe even took the day off work to help watch the little ones!

So this morning I raise my latte to the Mama tribe, (and wipe my eyes), because you all are amazing, and I cannot wait to meet the newest baby for the Mama tribe.

Dad’s Groups

It is time we showed the Dad’s of the Nappy Shoppe community some love.  For some time now we have offered support for the mothers in our community, with breastfeeding support groups, post par-tum support groups, and mums groups.  Now that we have a dad on the Nappy Shoppe team, we can finally offer some groups JUST for Dads!

10603673_787755641265500_4074492104472818469_n

First off is our Dad’s group.  This is a FREE group.  Just come and hang out in our classroom with other dads.  You can bring your little ones if you wish.  We have toys for the toddlers.  We will have refreshments as well.  Mat, the Dad on our team will be there to share and commiserate etc.

 

Second is our “Boobs and Beer” event.  This is actually a class.  For this one we will be serving craft beers and snacks.  Mat, our “teacher” will be talking about cloth diapering, babywearing and how to support wives while nursing etc.  This class is aimed at expectant and new dads, but all dads are welcome.  This is a dad’s night out, so please no little ones.  Cost for this one is $5.  Book your spot on our classes page.

Dad’s we hope to see you come and attend.  Help us build as great a Dad community as we have a Mum’s community.

matandbaylorAnd a little about Mat, our Dad on the team.

Mat York is the father of two, Baylor who was born in 2012 and Miles who was born in 2015.  He and his wife Jordan have been coming into the Shoppe since Baylor was a baby.

 

Babywearing with twins

Jennifer DeJong is one of our regular customers at the store.  She is the mother of twins.  About herself she writesI have been a high school teacher since I graduated from Texas A&M in May 2002. I work full time and even cloth diaper. We live on an acre and have 7 amazing outside dogs and an appaloosa horse I enjoy showing. People thought I was crazy when I said I wanted to cloth diaper and then they thought I was nuts when I said I would do it with twins. While my husband and I are done with having kids we are so blessed and thankful for our two little healthy bundles born in February 2014 at 36.5 weeks. I think it is all about the mindset of what you want to do…… and then just do it.

I asked Jennifer to tell us her thoughts about babywearing twins.  And here is what she wrote:

Babywearing is an amazing concept but when you have twins it is just another hurdle to overcome. Whether you are a stay at home mom or a full time working one, you can get things done and carry your babies. Within 3 hours of purchasing my two slings I had them loaded up and we were outside feeding the horse! I did do my homework before choosing which sling was right for me and I had lots of practice with one sling and one baby.
jennifertwins3
When they were 3 months old I wanted something I could quickly get on and off in the house but still get some housework done. I purchased my first Sakura Bloom sling and I was off and running. Soon I found myself taking the sling outside of the house and it was great to throw in the diaper bag and use at the grocery store or even at a restaurant. (Yes, I take them out to eat even at 3 mo. old). On a side note—I never used the infant carry carseat and for good reason- We needed 6 bases and they grow out of it within a year. I had no idea how much fun babywearing would be and I’m glad we didn’t waste our money on the carry seats.
jennifertwins2
After a few months of just carrying one in a sling I felt like I could handle both in two slings. Sometimes I don’t want to mess with the stroller and just want to carry them. They love being snuggled up and I feel they learn so much from me while I’m carrying them. With the assistance of the Nappy Shoppe employees they instructed me on how to properly wear two slings and both kiddos. I think it was harder for me to pick out coordinating colors than it was to carry two!

I would suggest to carry them both individually for awhile and use both sides with both kids. This way they will be prepared to be on either side and the transition to carrying both will be seamless.

I never go anywhere without my slings now. We even went to the ranch and all three of us climbed inside the tractor and plowed the field when they were 7 mo old. My kids love to be in the action and I know they can’t wait for the next adventure in their slings. I work full time and even cloth diaper. We live on an acre and have 7 amazing outside dogs and an appaloosa horse I show. I think it is all about the mindset of what you want to do…… and then just do it.

**I am always keeping their safety in mind. I have help to get them in the slings or I am sitting on the bed/couch. I never get around livestock with them unless there is a solid wall in between us**
