By focusing on diaper need, the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) works to meet the basic needs of all American children and families.
Our mission is to raise awareness of diaper need, strengthen community-based diaper banks, and generate donations of dollars and diapers, so that all babies remain clean, dry and healthy.
Working in partnership with our friends at Too Small to Fail, we’ve created the first-ever “Diaper Time” playlist featured on Spotify, Kids and Family. The 25-track playlist features Martina McBride delivering a series of tips and activity ideas between songs aimed at inspiring parents to make diaper changing time a moment to meaningfully interact and promote their child’s early language and brain development. Give a listen!
Without diapers, babies cannot participate in early childhood education.
Without childcare, parents cannot go to work.

“Our families are always thankful. Having diapers on a regular basis means they don’t have to make decisions between food, medicine and clean babies.”
