Terms and Conditions
To start service, there is a 4-week initial minimum plus a one-time set-up fee required for all new customers This payment is due prior to the first delivery. The first 4-weeks of service and set-up fee are both non-refundable.

We also offer automatic payment in which your credit card on file can be charged monthly for your service. This is not required. However, any unpaid service weeks or damaged, lost or stolen items will be charged to your card if we have not collected the final balance within 2 weeks of termination of service.
Diaper Service Registry
All registries are “open registries” meaning the registry is open until the customer has decided to close the registry. Precious Bottoms will not give full refunds or cash refunds for any unused dollar amounts remaining on a registry. If diaper service is cancelled and there is a dollar amount remaining on the customers registry account, the customer will receive registry credit valued at 50% of the remaining diaper service weeks amount (i.e. if there is $50.00 remaining on the registry, the registry credit will be valued at $25.00). Customers will receive specific items that were purchased through the registry, but can not receive a cash value for those items. The customer must call Precious Bottoms to use their store credit. The customer has 14 days after cancellation of service to claim the registry credit. Any registry credit not used within 14 days after cancellation of service will be forfeited. Registry credit can only be used towards limited items. The customer may gift their registry credit to a friend or family member or use the remaining balance on any combination of the following goods: prefold cloth diapers, Snappi Fasteners, Thirsties covers, PlanetWise Wet/Dry bags, Kawaii pocket diapers or diaper covers or Morgan Botanicals Sweet Cheeks Balm.

Typical number of diapers per week:
Customers will receive one week’s supply of pre-fold service quality diapers, delivered in a waterproof pail liner on the first and second delivery. Fresh, clean cloth diapers will be delivered each week to REPLACE THE NUMBER OF SOILED diapers left for pick-up starting with the 3rd delivery.
As your child grows and is ready for a larger diaper, all current diapers must be returned in order to receive a full supply of the larger size. A $3.00 per diaper charge will be added to your next invoice for any unreturned diapers. It is the customer’s responsibility for all Precious Bottoms inventory that comes with weekly service. Regardless of how a diaper might be damaged or stolen, the fee of $3.00 per diaper and $20 per pail liner is the customer’s responsibility to cover unless the theft/damaged occurred while in the possession of Precious Bottoms. It is the customer’s responsibility to let Precious Bottoms Staff know when they are ready for a larger diaper size. If the customer needs more diapers per week it is also their responsibility to let Precious Bottoms Staff know. The customer must notify Precious Bottoms by Friday at 3pm of any changes needed to their weekly delivery (i.e. change in diaper size or amount). Please contact 657-210-1021657-210-1021 with any weekly changes to your account including but not limited to change in size, change in diaper amount and vacation notices.
If you are leaving on vacation, please contact us, at 657-210-1021657-210-1021 or at firstname.lastname@example.org at least one week in advance to discuss the available options. If you wish to suspend service while you are gone, you must notify Precious Bottoms a minimum of two service weeks prior to your departure in order to receive credit for vacation weeks. At the time of notice, we will make arrangements to pick up all dirty diapers before you leave so they do not sit while you are gone. The week we pick up is not a vacation hold week. Service is only suspended when we do not come out.
We encourage all of our customers to take our diapers with them while they are traveling. Please let us know if you are planning to travel with our diapers and we can make arrangements to get extra diapers or bags to you.
Proper Diaper Use
Precious Bottoms rental diapers are to be used on baby’s bottom only. Customers using diapers for anything other than on a baby’s bottom (i.e. as cleaning rags or spit up rags) will be assessed a fee for any diaper that needs to be removed from service. Price per diaper if found damaged (other than normal wear and tear) is $3.00 each. Please do not put disposable wipes in the wet bag. If disposable wipes are found in the wet bag you will be charged $5.00 per week that disposable wipes are found in your bag.
Certain medications or diaper creams can cause untreatable stains that ruin rented diapers (e.g., Fish oil, Zinc Oxide, Desitin). Please notify us if your child’s doctor has prescribed any medications or diaper rash creams. Visit our website for recommended diaper creams.
Do not store soiled diapers in direct sunlight or in the heat (e.g., outside, in a garage during the summer, in a bathroom or laundry room). This will cause unpleasant things to grow and may damage the diapers. We suggest storing the diapers in the nursery. With your weekly service you will be provided with a waterproof liner. Our pail liners fit perfectly in The Original Diaper Pail that we carry in our boutique. Our pails will also fit in standard tall kitchen pails with swivel lids. Please talk to our staff if you have any questions about pails. There is no need to rinse soiled diapers. In fact, this can cause mold or mildew. Please shake off soiled diapers when possible, although not required, to help mitigate lingering odors and help prevent some staining from occurring on the diaper (again, not required, but appreciated). Please do not store diapers in plastic bags. This can cause mold and mildew. When setting your bag out for pick up, please try to avoid leaving it in direct sunlight. We understand that because of how some houses and apartments are set up this isn’t always an option.
Precious Bottoms makes every effort to conserve resources while also meeting customers’ needs. On your delivery day, please place your pail liner full of soiled diapers in an easily accessible place out of direct sunlight when possible.
Missed Deliveries: We understand that being a parent is busy work and things are sometimes forgotten. However, deliveries only occur in your town one day a week. It is imperative that you have your diapers out for pick-up when we arrive. We offer an email reminder for a fee to customers who wish to be reminded. This service is offered upon request only and there is a fee. Please tell us when you set up service if you would like an email reminder. We forgive the 1st missed delivery as an “Oops!” and you will receive your clean order. If the diapers are not left out a second week, we will not leave clean diapers and each missed delivery then will result in a $5.00 charge. We deliver diapers in San Diego on Mondays currently (this is subject to change) and we ask that you please be patient for any unexpected weather or traffic delays. Notices will be provided regarding changes in delivery schedule so that we get your diapers to you safely and on time.
6am to 8pm Mondays.
Active Military Discount:
For all active duty military we offer a 10% discount on service and products. *This discount cannot be combined with any other discounted package or product.
Lost and Found
Please keep all personal items out of the pail liners. Precious Bottoms Diaper Service is not responsible for any items inadvertently placed in the soiled diaper bag. Please call us to report any missing items. We will gladly return found items on your next scheduled delivery date.
Referring a New Customer

Customer Satisfaction and Limitations
