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.
Diapers are as essential to a baby's healthy development as a families love. Keeping infants and toddlers clean, dry, and healthy is key to building a solid foundation for all children to reach their full potential.
For parents suffering from diaper need, they may have to leave baby in a soiled diaper for extended periods or even reuse previously soiled diapers. Parents often have to choose between paying for food or buying diapers. The stress of a decision like that takes a toll on the entire family.
Our vision for the CPI Diaper Project? Our tiniest community members have a healthy and consistent supply of diapers.
Why diapers make a difference.
Diapers cost between $70 and $80 per month. Almost $3000 to diaper one child with regular changes until potty training–a huge expense for the over 5 million low-income families with young children living in the U.S. today.
Public assistance programs don’t cover diapers. Diapers give children and families a brighter future.
