Did you know?
That 1/3 of Minnesota children 3 and under don’t have consistent access to clean diapers? That’s more than 75,000 babies and toddlers in our state whose parents aren’t financially able to buy enough diapers.
Everyone suffers when parents can’t purchase enough diapers
Parents who aren’t able to purchase enough clean diapers often suffer from mental-health problems like depression and anxiety related to not being able to comfort their little ones.
The diaper market caters to
Bulk diapers are much less expensive. It’s a fact. The more diapers are in a package, the less each diaper costs. But you have to be able to afford a $25 box of diapers instead of the $10 package with this week’s paycheck.
Public policy doesn’t help
Some members of Congress are working to change this! Our own Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison and Connecticut Representative Rosa DeLauro introduced the Hygiene Assistance For Families of Infants and Toddlers Act of 2015. Please consider asking your elected officials to support this incredibly important legislation!
