Wee Care Diaper Service has partnered with several local businesses in the Cleveland and Chattanooga area to open up convenient exchange kiosks where customers can pick up a week’s worth of clean cloth diapers for their babies.

The business works with the perspective that some parents like using cloth diapers for their babies but are often deterred because they dislike having to wash them.

The exchange locations are called SwaddleSwap sites. Some are stationary stand-alone units like the ones located at Cooke’s Food Store on Keith Street in Cleveland, Pruett’s Signal Mountain Market on Taft Highway on Signal Mountain, and Chattanooga’s Julie Darling Donuts on Frazier Avenue on the North Shore.

Customers have their baby’s weekly supply of cloth diapers safely stowed in a locker for them to grab on their designated day. They can then deposit their baby’s dirty cloth diapers for the Wee Care team to remove for cleaning.

“It’s been fun to collaborate with local businesses and entities in Cleveland and Chattanooga,” Wee Care co-owner Lee Gates said. “It’s a win-win. Customers have easy access to cloth diapers at low cost, and the local businesses have return customers at their location every week. We are grateful for the willingness of these host sites to help us make healthy, sustainable diapers easily available to all families.”

Gates said Wee Care looks forward to opening new SwaddleSwap Sites in the future.

“We’re always looking for ways to make cloth diapering even easier for folks,” he said. “And we love supporting local businesses. Wee Care about providing healthy diapering solutions for families, and we believe local businesses make for a healthier community too.”
