We've all said it - there's just something about a sweet smelling baby, fresh out of the bath and into clean diaper, that makes us smile. The thought of parents having to reuse diapers, especially to a mom who's never been in that position, is appalling.
Seeking to donate diapers my son had outgrown, I stumbled into the learning about the Diaper Gap in America. Did you know:
Why not cloth diapers?
Cloth diapering is a great alternative in theory, but in practice it isn’t an viable option for those struggling to supply diapers. There is a large initial investment that can't be born by those struggling to make ends meet. There is a bigger time investment for washing cloth diapers. If there is no washer in the home, parents must make time for the laundry mat, maybe of which don't allow washing diapers.. In addition, daycare centers don’t allow cloth diapers.
