WHAT IS DIAPER NEED?

The gap between the number of diapers a baby needs and the number of diapers the family can afford is called diaper need.

 

  • Diapers are a significant expense, calculated in major monthly costs along with food and rent. Babies require 6 to 12 diapers per day, and disposable diapers can cost as much as $70-$80 per month, per baby. Plus, wipes can cost an additional $30 or more, per month. 

  • Food stamps and similar programs like WIC don’t cover diapers, but even if they did, it would not help this situation. As Goldblum notes, families who rely on food stamps “don’t have enough money to make it to the end of the month,” which means dipping into the food stamps for diapers would just mean less food.

  • 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.

  • Diapers are a necessity! Parents will often keep children in wet and soiled disposables for a long time — possibly even rinsing and reusing them. Babies who remain in a soiled diaper too long are exposed to potential health risks, such as yeast and bacterial infections, and severe diaper rash.
