Every Little Bottom

I read a very sad story about diaper need today. It lead me to this Web site, Every Little Bottom.

A recent study* shows that one in three American moms have to choose between diapers and other basic needs like food. Without an adequate supply of diapers, babies are kept in wet, dirty diapers for extended period. They sometimes must wear diapers that have been cleaned out and put back on.
"Moms struggling against diaper need are more likely to miss work or school, stay home when they need to go out, or keep their babies out of daycare — which usually requires a full day's supply of disposable diapers."
The Web site, set up by Huggies, allows you to donate diapers online or through your Huggies purchases (reward points). They also have a listing of diaper banks. All this so we can help moms and babies in need.

*You can read the full Huggies Every Little Bottom Study (in PDF form) at the Web site.

  1. How sad. We were oh-so broke many a time when the girls were little, but I could not even imagine having to leave the baby in a dirty diaper or, worse, clean it out and put it back on. Very, very sad.
