Minnesota State Laws Regarding Cloth Diapering in Daycares

According to the Minnesota Administrative Rules Chapter 9502, Licensing of Day Care Facilities, Part 9502.0435, Sanitation and Health, Subp. 13, Diapers:

Children in diapers shall be kept clean and dry. The following sanitary procedures must be used to reduce the spread of communicable disease.

  • A.  An adequate supply of clean diapers must be available for each child and stored in a clean place inaccessible to children. If cloth diapers are used, parents must provide a change of the outer plastic pants for each fecally 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.
  • B.  Diapers and clothing must be changed when wet or soiled.
  • C.  For disposable diapers, a covered diaper disposal container must be located in the diaper changing area and lined with a disposable plastic bag. The container must be emptied when full, and at least daily.
  • D.  Diapering must not take place in a food preparation area. The diaper changing area must be covered with a smooth, nonabsorbent surface. If the surface is not disposable and is wet or soiled, it must be washed with soap and water to remove debris and then disinfected with a solution of at least two teaspoons of chlorine bleach to one quart of water. If the surface is not soiled with feces or urine, then it must be disinfected with the solution of chlorine bleach and water after each diapering.
  • E.  Single service disposable wipes or freshly laundered cloths must be used for washing a soiled child. A child who has soiled or wet must be washed with a disposable wipe or a freshly laundered cloth before rediapering.
  • Cloth diapers, except those supplied by a commercial diaper service, plastic pants, and soiled clothing must be placed in the plastic bag after removal and sent home with the parent daily.

In other words:

  • Parents must provide enough diapers for the day, plus a few extras to make sure your day care provider doesn’t run out.
  • Diapers and other supplies must be labled.
  • Dirty diapers will be sent home at the end of each day in a plastic bag. Most day cares are asking for families to provide clean zippered wet bags.

**Please note that each individual daycare may have additional requirements or requests based on their comfort level or abilities.
