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!
