What is Diaper Need? Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or child clean, dry, and healthy. asterix icon Need is more than a footnote. Here are the facts. 1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need. 5 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families. Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8. Disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby. No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers. Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large â€œbig boxâ€ store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers. Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a dayâ€™s supply of disposable diapers.
