1 in 3 American families lack a sufficient amount of diapers to keep their child clean, dry & healthy.
The average child under age 3 uses 6-10 diapers per day, costing families nearly $100 each month per child.
Working families often rely on childcare facilities, many of which require parents to provide a day's worth of disposable diapers for their child.
More so, there are no government assistance programs that directly fund diapers — a basic need for all infants and toddlers.
When children don't have access to diapers they may be left in soiled diapers which risks their health and wellbeing.
When enough diapers aren't available for the day, children can't participate in early childhood programs, which can impact a parent or caregiver's ability to go to work.
Diaper Need impacts the physical, mental and emotional well being of everyone.
