Anyone know of any diaper service in the area?<br>
Any good places to buy diapers, used or new?

The last of the diaper services went out of business this past March. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"><br>
In the 11 years I have used CDs, I have never found them in a store, except the rare thrift store find.<br><br>
However, there is a great web based business located in Framingham<br><a href="http://zannadu.com/" target="_blank">Zannadu</a><br>
Joanne is great to work with, and shipping is fast and cheap because she is so close.

Kristina, Thanks so much for your post. I am going to set up an appt with Joanne, so she can give me a diaper 101 and educate me on what will work best for my babies.<br>
A friend/aquaintance of mine either bought a diaper service out of Warren, RI or just set up her own. I haven't spoken to her since last year, but keep calling her, as I want to give her my diaper business, but she never gets back to me, so I am getting kind of tired of waiting, so thanks.<br>
Off to do some more research!<br><br>

The diaper service in Warren was the one I was thinking of. I began to use them back in 1993 when it was owned by the Williams family. When I needed the service again in 2002, it was owned by a very nice lady whos name I can't remember. When I was looking into getting the service for my SIL in 2003 (I had cancelled by that point and was washing my own dipes) she told me she had the business for sale. This past winter, a momma here at MDC said she had spoken to her this past winter, and she was closing the business in March 2005.<br>
I do hope someone ended up buying it. However, with gas prices the way they are I imagine it is a difficult business to have. The diaper lady had told me in order to keep up, she had routes that whent from Boston, to Westerly and over to Uxbridge.<br>
It's too bad there is not enough business to keep something like that open. I eventually switched to washing my own dipes, because it was cheaper.<br><br>
I'm glad Joanne can help you out. She is so nice, I always reccomend her to local folks.<br><br>
Good Luck!
