How We Work to Solve Diaper Need: Share the Love Cloth Diaper Bank
September 6, 2018 8:27 am | by
Share the Love, our cloth diaper bank, works to solve diaper need.

Diaper Need Diaper need is a huge, silent epidemic in the United States. According to a study*, as many as 1 in 3 families struggle to buy enough diapers. These families are forced to choose between buying diapers and essentials like food, utilities and childcare. No government assistance exists for diapers. WIC and SNAP do not help supply families with diapers. That means that parents in need resort to rationing diaper by leaving the same diaper on a baby longer than it is meant to be worn. Disposable diapers are dried out and put back on a baby. These practices put

Thursday Giveaway: Diaper Need Awareness
October 1, 2015 9:05 pm | by

This week is Diaper Need Awareness Week. To help more people learn more about this silent epidemic, Cotton Babies Share the Love is working to spread the word about diaper need and its devastating effects.   According to a recent study by Huggies, one in three families are forced to choose between everyday essentials and diapers. Many families cannot afford to purchase clean diapers and often resort to reusing disposables, which can lead to a number of heartbreaking issues like a rash, infection or emotional distress. Since there are few federal programs that provide assistance with diapers, we want to ensure that more

 
Share the Love: Helping More Families in Need
December 30, 2014 7:20 pm | by

Editor’s Note: This content was kindly (and voluntarily) shared with us by a Share the Love recipient. When I applied for a cloth diaper loan through Share the Love, I was 43 years old and 30 weeks pregnant with my fourth child, who had just been diagnosed with Down Syndrome. I am a housewife/stay-at-home mother who also cares for my husband’s 86-year-old grandmother that lives with us. My husband had been unemployed for four months, having worked part-time before then, and just received a 4-month trucking job. Needless to say, we have truly been struggling financially since fall 2013, but by scaling

Share the Love has hosts throughout the U.S. that are working hard and volunteering to help families who are struggling to diaper their babies.  For years, many families have wondered how they are going to afford disposables and resorted to reusing dirty diapers when their options ran out.

Currently there are 112 Share the Love host sites in 43 states and Puerto Rico and this program is always expanding to help more families in need. If you have extra

Whether you give away your time, your attention, your toys, your money, or even your cloth diapers, sharing is a way to build relationships and even help someone in need. Our national cloth diaper bank, Share the Love, was created with the “sharing is caring” philosophy in mind.
