Diaper Need Awareness Week

September 23 – 29, 2019

What is Diaper Need?

Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or child clean, dry, and healthy. Babies without clean diapers are exposed to more potential health risks

Did you know…

  • 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
  • Over 98,000 children in Minnesota aged 3 or younger live in poor or low-income families.
  • Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
  • Disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
  • No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
  • Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers
