DO IT WITH DIAPERS!

 
The Facts

 

 

*  Diapers cost $100/month or more!

 

* Full time work at minimum wage grosses $825/month.

 

* Community/Government programs DO NOT cover diapers - 

   not Food Stamps, not WIC.

 

* Large corporations DO NOT donate diapers unless you 

  have a multiple birth (beyond twins).

 

* Cloth is not always an option. Childcare centers require

   parents to leave disposable diapers with their child.

 

Availability  to  washers and driers are often times limited.

 

* A normal infant uses up to 12 diapers/day: a normal toddler

  8/day. In low income households, a baby may be in a single

  diaper all day or longer, increasing the risk of health

  problems and skin diseases.

 

*  A baby crying non-stop from being in a soiled diaper for a

  prolonged time period is more likely to be abused.

 

* Parents who can't afford $100/month to leave disposable

  diapers at childcare providers often leave the workforce until

  their child/ren are out of diapers. Childcare costs are

  subsidized, but there are NO subsidies for diapers!
