Our mission

June 8, 2018 0 By The Stork

Baby items are a major expense!  Our mission is to provide knowledge of the best prices on diapers, wipes, and formula to parents and caregivers in real time when they need it most: at the time of online purchase.  Additionally, we donate a diaper for every $25 purchased through our site to help defray this major expense for families in need.

By the numbers…

Have you ever calculated the yearly cost of diapers?  The cost is mind-blowing!  The average cost of a diaper is about $0.20.  In the first year alone, a baby might go through more than 2,700 diapers.  That’s $540! And to be honest, I think that’s a conservative estimate when you factor in the cost of overnight diapers, size changes (read: partially unused packs), being brand loyal no matter the cost, and 4 year olds who steal clean diapers for baby-dolls.  

Doing our part

Not only do we want to enable parents and caregivers to find the best prices all the time, we also want to make sure we’re doing our part to help families who can’t always afford this expense.  Therefore, every time you purchase diapers through our site, we make a donation to a diaper bank.

More about diaper banks

Diaper banks provide access to diapers and other baby items at the most critical time of need – when families can’t afford them or during natural disasters.  Clean diapers help prevent rashes and infections.  And many federally-funded safety net programs—including Medicaid, WIC, and SNAP—do not subsidize diapers.  In 2017, Hurricane Harvey devastated parts of Texas.  The Texas Diaper Bank‘s Disaster Relief Program distributed over 4 million diapers to people affected by the storm.  Amazing!
