I will be putting my baby into day care. Do day care providers allow cloth diapers?

The great news is that an increasing number of day cares are accepting cloth diapers. According to Minnesota day care regulations under 9502.0435 SANITATION AND HEALTH, when using cloth diapers, "If cloth diapers are used, parents must provide a change of the outer plastic pants (cover) for each fecal soiled diaper change. Cloth diapers, except those supplied by a commercial diaper service, and plastic pants, if supplied by parents, must be labeled with the child's name" and "must be placed in the plastic bag (wet bag) after removal and sent home with the parent daily." Wisconsin has similar regulations.

 If the day care you're using, or thinking of using, does not accept cloth diapers, I would bring a cloth diaper style or styles with that you are thinking of using and show them how easy and convenient cloth diapers and wet bags are now. Many day cares will at least consider accepting cloth diapers when they see how much they have changed. Hopefully your day care provider will be willing to work with you on using cloth diapers. They might start preferring it!
