Building Healthy Communities by
Ending Diaper Need and Period Poverty

St. Louis Area Diaper Bank

Why Diapers and Period Products?

Need

1 in 3 families experience diaper need and 1 in 4 women struggled to purchase period products

Costs

It costs about $1000 each year to diaper a child and $478 each year to purchase period supplies for one woman or girl.

No Benefits

No public benefit programs allow for the purchase of diapers or period supplies

Health

Keeping infants and toddlers clean, dry and healthy is key to building a solid foundation for all children. Inadequate menstrual hygiene has been associated with infection and poor health-related quality-of-life.

Less Stress

Moms who don’t have enough diapers are 3 times more likely than their peers to suffer from depression and anxiety. Every tampon = 4 hours of a more focused, present, and confident person.

Abuse Risks

Children left in soiled diapers are uncomfortable and irritable. Fussy babies are at an increased risk of child abuse.

St. Louis Area Diaper Bank makes a BIG IMPACT in 2021!
