National Diaper Need Awareness Week is more than just a week on the calendar. It’s an urgent call to address an often-overlooked issue that affects numerous families across our nation: diaper need. What exactly is diaper need? It’s the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to ensure that infants and toddlers are clean, healthy, and dry. And, given that diapers are not covered by assistance programs like WIC or SNAP, many families find themselves caught in a challenging situation.
Why National Diaper Need Awareness Week Matters
The inception of National Diaper Need Awareness Week stems from the imperative to shed light on this significant, yet often silent, issue. A week dedicated to making people aware, involved, and part of the solution is crucial. After all, every child deserves the basics, and every parent should have the support they need to provide for their young ones.
