Why Diapers?

  • Diapers and wipes are about $100 a month
  • Purchasing diapers is not covered by government systems because they are considered “hygiene items.”
  • This cost forces some families to reuse disposable diapers, or leave babies in diapers longer than they should, which can lead to diaper rash, infections and other health problems.
  • Babies who have diaper rash tend to cry more. More crying, coupled with the stress of living in need, raises the chances of child abuse.

Why Not Cloth Diapers?

  • The vast majority of daycares require disposable diapers.
  • Many low-income families don’t have access to washers and dryers and most laundromats prohibit washing of cloth diapers for sanitary reasons.
