Why should you donate?
A typical baby needs 10-12 diapers a day and a toddler needs approximately 8 diapers. At a cost of between $100 and $120 a month, diapers are an expense that many families struggle to meet. 1 in 20 mothers who has had to cut back on other purchases to pay for diapers has reused a disposable diaper. 36% of mothers living in poverty regularly run out of clean diapers for their infants. Diapers are not covered by social welfare systems like WIC or food stamps/EBT Card because diapers are considered “hygiene items”. Families are sometimes forced to use one diaper a day for their babies. These babies can experience diaper rash, infections, and other health problems. Babies with severe diaper rashes often cry more – more crying coupled with the stress of living in need can lead to child abuse. Babies who cry excessively are the most likely to be victims of shaken baby syndrome…
