5.3 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.
1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.
Disposable diapers cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
