Free Diapers For Low-Income Families

Diapers are not a luxury item, they are a basic need low-income families are struggling with. This is a silent crisis with many parents and caregivers who often will find themselves trying to decide whether they should pay for rent, food or diapers. If you or someone you know is in need of diapers, please use our directory,”Free Diapers For Low-Income Families” below to find a diaper bank in your area. 

It saddens me that you can purchase candy and soda with food stamps, but diapers are classified  with items not allowed like cigarettes, alcohol, and pet food. With one in three families struggling already, trying to afford diapers, at a cost of $70-$80 a month is unimaginable. Many parents cannot attend school or work without childcare. Many childcare centers require that parents supply 4-8 disposable diapers daily. 

Because of this I have decided to take action for my readers by collecting information to help those in need of diapers. Below I have listed dozens of emergency diaper resources. If you know of any not listed please free to comment with information and I will add it to our list.

Free Diapers For Low-Income Families

  2. There is a big scam going on that Women are pulling right Saying they have a baby when they doing just to get free diapers and they are selling them back to Walmart they come in with big baskets full of them and turn around and get cash money back at the taxpayers expense they need to start putting a black marker through the UPC code

  3. Shanon Bramblette says:

    Just thought I’d add. If there’s an Early Headstart close to you. Sign your kids up! My 2 youngest kids go to the local EHS & my 3 y/o goes to the Head Start (same building). Not only is the daycare free. EHS goes from 8-2 & HS goes from 8:30-2:30. But you can also apply for a voucher & get free or cheap extended day services that run from 7-6. EHS is from 6 wks-3. HS is 3-5. Once they turn 3, they get transitioned to HS. They provide everything! All you have to bring is 2 changes of clothes & a blanket for naptime or crib sht if they’re a baby. They provide formula, bottles, baby food, diapers, wipes, slippers to wear in the class, toothbrush & toothpaste, & breakfast, lunch, & snacks. Extended Day gets an extra snack in the later hrs.. If your baby has sensitive skin, you can get a dr. note that only certain types of diapers or wipes can be used & the school will provide them, also. If your child has an allergy, they get a substitute. My kids’ school has a Summer program, too & they have a table where parents can donate kids’ clothes they no longer need & you can help yourself to some you need! They have a free lending library where you can borrow books for your kids to read @ home. They have h.w. activities w/ ideas of what to do w/ your kids. I absolutely LOVE Early Headstart & Headstart. I recommend any & every1 who qualifies to take their kids there. They do monthly parent meetings & learning parties w/ free food, activities, & raffles. The petting zoo has come to the kids’ school & when the kids are close to kindergarten age, they do trips to visit the school. My kids learn so much there. They do breakfast w/ Mom & breakfast w/ Dad for Mother’s & Father’s Day & keep you connected w/ community events. My 2 y/o gets Early Intervention for a speech delay & his therapist does his therapy sessions right there in the daycare. They have so many resources. They’ll help you apply for a voucher. They make family goals w/ you periodically & help you achieve them. They’ll provide housing & food resources. One time when we were low on diapers, they gave us a bunch! & They’re always posting job opportunities, research studies, & fun activities to do w/ the kids on bulletin boards. They give free books & gifts @ the holidays, as well as give you resources on how to get help w/ Christmas gifts & food. There’s a waiting list to get in but you can join their HomeBased program as early as when you’re prego to get em bumped ^ on the list. Also, the dentist & flu clinic go there so that’s already taken care of!
