Lehigh Valley Diaper Exchange is a family run business located in Nazareth, Pennsylvania.
We serve the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas for all of your baby's cloth diapering needs.
Our goal is to make cloth diapering an easy, enjoyable experience for your family. We will do all we can to ensure your cloth diapering journey is a success.
We will walk you through the beginning basics, and be there to support you (not pressure you), and answer any questions you may have when deciding the best choice for your family.
Every week we will deliver fresh, clean, organic, chemical free diapers to your door, and take away your soiled diapers for laundering. You don't even have to be home for pick-up and deliveries!
We are a source for everything you need to cloth diaper your baby from birth through potty training, without ever having to leave your home.
There are more than 60 chemicals in disposable diapers.
Some are known toxins that have been linked to asthma and male infertility.
In contrast, cloth diapers have been linked to less diaper rash and younger potty training.
On top of that, cloth is more economical AND eco-friendly
We know that financially, laundering your own diapers is the most frugal decision, but many parents don't have the time, or quite honestly, don't relish the thought of soiled diapers in their washing machine ... this is where we come in.
Once you've decided to use our service, simply call or email us to get started. We will bring everything you need to begin cloth diapering.
If you are expecting, contact us before your due date, and we'll make sure you're not only equipped with all your supplies ahead of the big day, but feeling confident about how to use them.
The same diapers will be returned to you each week eliminating concern for cross contamination of any sort, or use of harsh unnecessary chemicals
Choosing to use cloth diapers helps the environment by using 70% less energy per diaper than creating a comparable disposable.
Just one child in disposable diapers will require 20 trees and 420 gallons of petroleum in just 2.5 years
Each year 21 BILLION diapers are added to landfills in the US alone.
Our cloth diapers have a life of approximately 100 -125 washes and after that they get a second life after being repurposed into lint free rags.
All of our diapers are made from organic cotton and cleaned without using harsh chemicals. We pride ourselves on knowing that nothing but natural products will touch your baby's delicate skin.
Our diaper covers, or 'outer layer', are the most up to date design, which means they not only look adorable, but prevent 'blow-outs' too! These are available to rent as part of your service, or to buy with lots of cute options
We have all your sizing needs which means as your baby grows, you don't have to invest in new diapers ~ you simply let us know when you're ready to size up. Its as easy as that!
To get started there is a one time fee of 118.00 and it includes everything listed here ... PLUS your first diaper delivery of 75 diapers!!! (this means a 31.00 savings!)
Your one time start up fee includes the rental of a diaper pail that you will keep for as long as you use our service to keep your dirty diapers in.
(This is also available for purchase if you would like to buy a second one to keep at a child care location, or for your own use)
You will get two liner bags to use while you have our service, and these are what you will put outside each week. When we pick them up, we will leave two clean, sanitized bags full of your clean diapers in it's place.
(Additional ones available for purchase if you desire)
One wet bag to use included with your start up fee. Perfect to take along in your diaper bag for use on the go - just empty the contents into the diaper pail when you get back home again. Additional ones available for purchase (especially useful to have an extra for daycare/babysitter or when going on vacation)
Snappi fasteners are made of an elastic material and work like a belt on your baby’s cloth diapers ... they are a safer replacement than diaper pins of the past. You don't HAVE to use a snappi to cloth diaper as your cover will hold the diaper in place, but they can help make your cloth diaper experience easier, especially when trying new/different folding techniques.
These prices are for full service, we pick up, launder and return. Additional a la carte options also available below
You will start your service with enough diapers for a week - 75 diapers is plenty for most people, but additional ones can be ordered if you find you need more ... you'll just need to decide if you want to purchase your covers (either from us or anywhere that you choose) or rent them as part of your service. Each week we will return the same number of diapers that we picked up ensuring that you always start your week with 75 fresh, clean ones
Double the diapers for your TWO new additions = 150 diapers
Triple the diapers for your THREE new additions = 225 diapers
On your first and second deliveries you will receive the weekly number of diapers that you ordered (typically 75). After that, you will be on a rotation basis. The number of soiled diapers you turn in on a delivery will be counted and returned to you on the next delivery. Example: If your order is for 75 diapers the first week, we will deliver 75 the first week and 75 the second week (no matter how many diapers you used the first week). Let’s say you only turned in 60 soiled diapers at the first week, you should now have 90 diapers at home (15 unused + 75 delivered on week 2). On the following week we will return to you 60 diapers, and pick up, let’s say 70 soiled diapers. Now you have 80 diapers at home. The total diapers returned to us plus the amount in your home should always be double the amount of your order, in this example 75 x 2.
Our service provides the diapers themselves which can be used with any cover which you decide you prefer. We are here anytime to answer cover questions. While we don't sell/provide covers, we do have several different types/brands that you are welcome to see and compare. Choosing a cover can be a trial and error process until you click with what kind you prefer for you and your baby. We do offer cover rentals (when available) so that you can try out different styles before purchasing y
Initial set up is 5. per cover = first 4 weeks. Each additional 4 week period = 2.50 per cover. You can trade up or down sizes at any time. Covers are kept at your home, and washed by you as needed.

Petroleum based creams can attach to the fibers of cloth diapers causing them to repel liquids, verse absorb them. Our FAQ tab has more suggestions about petroleum free products that are better choices for your baby's skin. We ask that you please don't use Regular or Original Formula Desitin. These two formulas are very high in cod-liver oil which causes staining and block absorption.
