Defining Diaper Need
It’s no surprise that babies need a lot of diapers, but did you know that 1 in 3 families in the U.S. experience diaper need? That means that 33 percent of parents and caregivers struggle to provide enough diapers for their growing infants. On average, babies go through 10-12 diapers a day, which can cost up to $100 each month just for an item that has to be thrown away every couple of hours. It takes approximately 1.5 hours at the federal minimum wage just to purchase one pack of diapers.
There are additional economic considerations. Most daycare facilities require parents to bring a day’s worth of disposable diapers each time they require child care. A lack of access to diapers can inhibit a parent’s ability to work, which can prevent them from meeting other basic needs as well. Additionally, government assistance programs, such as food stamps and WIC, can’t be used to purchase diapers.
How We’re Helping
Our model is dedicated to donating one diaper for every one sold to Good+Foundation. So far, we’ve donated 1 million diapers and helped over 33,500 families to date! But, we’re doubling down for National Diaper Need Awareness Week and doubling our donation. This week, for every Believe Diaper sold, we will donate two to Good+Foundation, with a minimum commitment of 200,000 diapers. We’ll be able to support over 6,500 additional families this week alone.
When you purchase Believe Diapers, you’re not only providing your baby with premium, sustainable, eco-friendly comfort, but you’re also helping families in need.
