Special Programs Offered by The Changing Table
TCT coined the phrase "Cloth Diaper Crash Course" when they began teaching about cloth in 2009. At the classes, parents and caregivers are given diapers to look at while they learn about the pros and cons of each, how to care for them, and how to make the best decisions about what to use for their family; the class is less of a "crash course" and more of a resource for those thinking of cloth diapering their little one. Trunk shows are also available for the more experienced cloth diaper user.
TCT also offers parents unique options to try before they buy. Parents can choose from the Newborn Rental Program for newborns and the Cloth Diaper Trial program for older babies. The Changing Table is the only cloth diaper store in Oklahoma City to offer parents a no-commitment trial of cloth diapers.
The Newborn Rental program was birthed from the frustration encountered by new parents when one-size cloth diapers that claim to fit babies from 8-35 pounds do not fit an average-sized 7-pound newborn. “It seems as though diaper companies are grossly overestimating what fits a newborn. According to various books and surveys, the average weight of a newborn baby is about 7 pounds. Now, that means there are babies much smaller and babies much bigger. I myself had a 6 pound 9 ouncer. I would consider that pretty darn close to average. My little guy just didn’t fit into my beautiful one-size diapers right away,” says Kristina. Elizabeth and Kristina have hand-picked diapers that will fit even the smallest of newborns. These can be rented for the first few months of a newborn’s life for a fraction of the cost of disposables. Interested parents are encouraged to contact TCT early in their pregnancy as there is a waiting list for the newborn rental program.
The Cloth Diaper Trial program is intended for older babies from approximately 3-months-old until potty training. This program is for any parent or caregiver interested in trying cloth or for those currently using cloth but interested in trying other brands. “Not every diaper will fit every baby the same way. This is a great way to try different kinds on your little one to determine what will work best for you and your baby without throwing away money on a kind that you won’t love for years to come. One of the greatest benefits of cloth is the money you will save. Our goal with the Cloth Diaper Trial Program is to help you be completely satisfied with the choices you have made,” says Elizabeth.
For both programs, parents are able to try a variety of cloth diapers in age appropriate sizes for a minimal rental fee. Parents who participate in the programs are offered a discount in the store at the end of the trials to help them get started with their cloth diaper stash at a lesser cost.
The newest program from The Changing Table is the no commitment "Try It Buy It" program. Up to three different kinds of diapers can be purchased from TCT, washed, used, and returned within a 20 day period for store credit if it's not the perfect diaper for your baby. For those that decide cloth is not for them, credit can be used on teething toys and necklaces, Moby wraps, baby care or mama care items.
And to help parents save even more, TCT now offers a points program. Points are earned through coming to classes, referring others to the the store, and for purchases. Points can be redeemed and used on purchases at any time by contacting TCT.
