need is defined as a lack of clean diapers. While diapers might not seem to be out of reach to you or me, many families struggle to make ends meet. For some, they have no other options but to choose between food or diapers, heat or wipes. Desperate parents have even resorted to reusing soiled diapers – blow-drying wet diapers and putting them back on their baby. No, it’s not sanitary – but what choice do they have? Unfortunately, the United States does not have any federal or state-level aid programs designed to meet diaper need. This means families must rely on private charity to safely diaper their baby.
