WHY IT’S IMPORTANT:
1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
5.2 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.
Babies require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
Disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to potential health risks.
Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers.
Many parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.
