Diaper Need

Diaper need is the struggle to provide babies with an essential need: diapers.

Some mothers face having to clean out and reuse soiled diapers, or have to choose between diapers and other basic needs like food.


Babies Suffer without Clean, Dry Diapers

Diaper need means babies are kept in wet, dirty diapers for an extended length of time. There are even times when babies must wear diapers that have been cleaned out and put back on1. As a result, they are more likely to experience signs of irritation and discomfort, cry more, and suffer from worse diaper rash.

Imagine Not Being Able to Provide Diapers for Your Baby

Moms struggling with diaper need are more likely to miss work or school, stay home when they need to go out, or keep their babies out of daycare — which usually requires a full day's supply of disposable diapers.1 Without enough diapers for routine changes, moms feel distressed1 and find parenting even more difficult.
