1 in 3 families struggle to maintain a sufficient diaper supply. No mother should have to weigh the importance of having enough diapers against other essentials such as food or housing. But with no government safety net programs to supplement, the practice of "stretching" (the reuse or recycle of diapers) is a reality that can jeopardize the physical health of a child as well as the mental health of the mother. And the impact of doesn’t end there. Because, daycare centers generally will not accept a child unless the family provides sufficient diapers, a child's access to adequate daycare and mother’s capacity to generate income or go to school is compromised.
