* You can't buy diapers with food stamps or get them through SNAP ( Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program).
Sadly, diapers are in the same category as cigarettes, alcohol and pet food.
* 22% of all children under five in the U.S live in poverty. 1 out of every 3 families struggle to
afford diapers. Sadly, many low income families have to make the tough choice between buying food, medicine, or diapers.
*If a family can't afford diapers, a baby may spend very long periods of time in a soiled diaper. At times, diapers are even re-used after being soiled. Sadly, this not only can lead to serious health problems and disease outbreaks in communities, the babies suffer.
* Diapers cost an average of $75-$100 per month. That is a lot of money for the 46.2 million people living in poverty in the U.S. Sadly, many low income shoppers only have drug or convenience stores near by, resulting in higher costs than the big box stores.
