I have used it since DS#1 was born 5 years ago and have never had a problem at all. I use the same one for DS#2, and Baby #3 has a nice stach of fresh diaper service quality prefolds waiting for him or her.
I prefer the service for several reasons:
The cost is low
I don't have issues with prefolds and snappis, and I can go wild and get the covers I really like.
I can spend more time homeschooling my boys, playing with them and snuggling with hubby and less time doing laundry
Start up costs were only as much as the Nikkys that I use, and my diapes were waiting for me when my babies were born
Weekly delivery (our delivery person is really friendly, and his wife is also a homebirther, so he likes to trade stories)
The prefolds (when put on right) were more trim than many of the AIOs or fitteds that I have been given over the years, so I don't have to worry about clothes not fitting properly
The service that we use is a family business, and I really like supporting their local efforts
They don't use bleach and they are very open about their procedures with cleaning and delivering dipes
I get a second child discount
I get free pails, deodisks, and a choice of diaper sizes and weights all the way from preemie to super heavy weight toddler
So, I am pretty simplistic when it comes to diapering...I don't need the ultra-cute AIOs, fitteds, etc. (they are cute, though!!)I would rather spend that money on cool clothes for my little ones, (or for me!), games and activites that we can all enjoy. White or wool Nikky covers are fine with me along with a nice soaker at night, and I love the way those fresh diapers look all folded and waiting for use!
I am a big-time supporter of diaper service, my mother used one, and her mother used one as well.
