Impact

member-map-cap

Through the collective efforts of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) more than 300 diaper banks and diaper pantries throughout the country continuously work to address diaper need.

NDBN and our members have distributed more than 160 million diapers and counting to babies living in poverty. By providing diapers to families in need, we are able to help keep babies clean, dry, and healthy.

Yale School of Medicine and the National Diaper Bank Network published the seminal article “Diaper Need and Its Impact on Child Health” in Pediatricson the impact of diaper need on maternal and child health.

What Is Diaper Need

The lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or toddler clean, dry and healthy.

Diaper Need Awareness Week is an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) created to mobilize efforts to help make a difference in the lives of the nearly 5.3 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger who live in poor or low-income families.

Acting together — individuals, diaper banks, faith-based institutions, service providers, businesses, organizations and elected officials — we can get diapers to all babies in need.

PROCLAMATIONS MATTER

  • Inform your elected officials
  • Increase awareness within your state & community
  • Promote opportunities for you to talk and help raise diapers & dollars
  • Champion change led by you, diaper bankers, and our supporters

VOICES OF NEED

"I recently had a baby girl. She is 3 months old. I also have two other daughters 5 and 9. I raise them all on my own and have recently been diagnosed with a seizure disorder... I can only work part time light duty. Needless to say things have gotten extremely hard in the past 3 months. I really need some extra help in any way possible especially with diapers, wipes and clothes until I can get back on my feet. "
