Before baby, I didn’t quite grasp how important diapers were. I’m being totally honest here! Yes, I understood how your baby NEEDS diapers, just like an adult needs undergarments. What I mean is, it never occurred to me the thousands, probably even millions of babies who go without diapers because of financial struggles.
I was forever grateful for all those who showed up to my baby shower with a pack of diapers. The cost of diapers alone can put a mother, a father, or even an entire family in a rut. I remember a good friend of mine pulling me to the side and telling me that she would do anything for Noah and I, especially buy him diapers if I ever needed it. I felt so relieved that I had friends, who I could count on for support whether it be in a much needed hug, or a pack of diapers. It may sound small to some, but it’s a big thing for many. Life can put you in some circumstances that are out of your control and you could end up needing help.
To thrive, babies need hugs as much as they also need diapers. Huggies No Baby Unhugged program promotes just that. I have donated several diapers to shelters since finding out about the No Baby Unhugged program because as a mother, I know, that just like hugs, diapers keep a baby clean, healthy and leave them feeling happy.
Nearly 1 in 3 families in the U.S. deal with diaper need. In Los Angeles, there are many families living in poverty and the choice between buying food and diapers, often is a harsh one that has to be made. Diaper Need Awareness Week just ended on October 2nd, but you can still join in on donating diapers to help families and babies in need. Visit one of the Los Angeles based sites, listed below, and take part in NO BABY UNHUGGED. Feel good in helping a family give their baby a hug that they need, the hug of a diaper! If you can’t make it to a donation site, you can also donate Huggies Reward Points to help a baby in need.
