JERSEY CITY, N.J., Dec. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Diapers.com, the site known for its free, overnight delivery of baby care essentials ($49 minimum), today announced that it will provide a year of free diapers (a $599 value) to the first 2015 baby born in New York City along with free rides home (up to $50) to all families that welcome newborns at Manhattan hospitals through January 31, 2015 with its "Baby's First Ride Home" program. The company initially launched the program on December 10th and, after a great response, is extending the program to include the much-celebrated New Year's babies.
"A day after my baby girl was born, I heard about Baby's First Ride Home and was so excited because the timing was perfect," said one Diapers.com customer. "It was probably the most special car ride I have ever taken, with both my girls next to me."
More than three quarters of Manhattan households do not own a car, making it difficult to get home from the hospital, especially during the cold winter months. Diapers.com understands this challenge for moms and wants to be there to assist them right from the very start.
"Feedback from parents about our program has been overwhelmingly positive," said Maria Renz, CEO at Quidsi, which operates Diapers.com. "We're now excited to extend this convenience to the moms of New Year's babies as we want them to view Diapers.com as a trusted resource from Day 1. With our year-round free overnight shipping in New York City, mom can even have her baby care necessities from Diapers.com waiting at her doorstep when she returns home from the hospital."
Parents interested in the program can contact the Diapers.com 24/7 customer care team at 1-800-DIAPERS on their day of discharge to receive a $50 Lyft credit to use towards their baby's first ride home from the hospital. Participants are responsible for requesting rides home through the Lyft app. Program details and specific instructions can be found at www.diapers.com/babysfirstridehome.
New moms throughout the U.S. can experience the convenience of shopping with Diapers.com; new customers get $10 off their first case of diapers and all customers get $5 off cases through March 31, 2015 with code GIMMEFIVE at checkout.
