Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby or toddler clean, dry, and healthy.

WHY DIAPERS MATTER

  • 47% of children age 0-3 live in low-income families
  • Government programs like WIC and Bridge Cards do not allow their resources to be used for diapers
  • Daycare providers insist on a supply of diapers for each child in their care
  • Without diapers, parents cannot work or attend school
  • The cycle of poverty continues

A healthy supply of diapers for one child costS roughly $75.00 per month. parents must choose between purchasing food, paying bills, or buying diapers for their child.

Many parents are forced to leave their children in soiled diapers much longer than is healthy. This can lead to painful diaper rash and even urinary tract infections.
