Diapers do change lives

Diaper Need (noun): the struggle to provide a sufficient number of clean, dry diapers to ensure that each diaper-wearing person can be changed out of wet or soiled diapers as often as necessary.

The impact of a diaper cannot be overstated. As an essential hygiene item, diapers are required for cleanliness and health of course. Perhaps even more importantly, the mental health of a parent and child are surprisingly dependent on a steady supply of diapers. Diaper need has profound effects, that can last generations.

  • The highest rates of child abuse and neglect coincide with the time children are potty training, often when parents attempt training too soon to save on diapers

  • Many daycare providers require parents to bring a supply of disposable diapers, meaning parents without diapers miss work

  • Families have reported “drying” and re-using disposable diapers or changing diapers less often

  • It is theorized that poor diaper hygiene can damage the infant’s development of parental bonding, attachment, and emotional regulation
