Diapers are one of the most expensive costs associated with raising a baby. For a single or low-income family, this can be especially stressful. Cloth diapers are an alternative to disposables that will make a substantial difference in a family’s budget.

After I had my first child, I was forced to choose between food and diapers. My husband and I were both laid off from our jobs, my WIC check did not cover everything we needed for our baby, and we were in a situation that many parents face each day – little income with a growing family. Diaper need is a subsequent result of poverty that often goes unnoticed and it is a very serious reality. By enabling low-income families with cloth diapers, we are putting money back into their pocket to buy better meals or pay a bill.
