Infants and toddlers account for 16% of the children under age 18 in Maryland. Eight percent of them live in families earning less than 100% of Federal Poverty Level.
1 in 3 families struggle to provide clean diapers for their baby.
The average baby goes through 8 to 12 diapers a day, which can cost approximately $70 to $80 per month, or about $900 a year.
Diapers cannot be purchased with SNAP (formerly called “food stamps”) or WIC assistance.
