About NDBN


We’re dedicated to ending diaper need in America.

We are leading a national movement to safeguard one of the most basic needs of all babies and their families, access to clean, dry diapers. Fair access to clean diapers improves the physical, mental and economic well-being of babies, families, and communities.

Our dynamic network continues to grow.

NDBN connects and supports the country’s more than 300 community-based diaper banks that collect, store and distribute free diapers to struggling families.

In 2016, the network distributed more than 52 million free diapers, including 20 million donated by NDBN founding sponsor Huggies®. The Network serves nearly 280,000 children throughout the country each month.

Our work to address diaper need would not be possible without the support of local community groups, foundations, policy makers, nonprofit organizations, business leaders and committed individuals. Together, we are raising public awareness, conducting and advancing research, providing expert technical assistance, and building a network of new and active diaper banks capable of improving their local communities.

NDBN’s core mission includes:

  • Raising awareness of diaper need
  • Building and supporting a national network
  • Distributing diapers to babies suffering from diaper need
