This event has a "No Refund Policy"


5.3 million children in the U.S. aged three or younger live in poor or low-income families.
1 in 3 American families reports experiencing diaper need.
Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps.
Disposable diapers cost $70 to $80 per month per baby.
No state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
Babies who remain too long in a soiled diaper are exposed to potential health risks.
Most childcare centers, even free and subsidized facilities require parents to provide a day’s supply of disposable diapers.

Cloth diapers are not accepted at the vast majority of child care centers. Many parents cannot go to work or school if they can’t leave their babies at child care.

You may donate directly to the No Child Wet Behind 501c3, to help with operation costs to ensure that this essential program can continue.

Donation Link:  

No Child Wet Behind will be supporting the National Diaper Bank Network with an annual donation.



On May 13, 2017, Baton Rouge Birth Services and New Orleans Doulas will host the 1st Annual Baton Rouge No Child Wet Behind Diaper Drive and 5k at BREC Highland Road Park. This community event will bring together our many supporters and partners in order to raise awareness about the many babies in need of clean, dry diapers throughout the Greater Baton Rouge area.

One in three mothers in America struggles to provide their babies with clean diapers. Unfortunately there is very little help or public resources to alleviate this problem. Food assistance programs do not extend to diaper purchases, most licensed daycare facilities require disposable diapers, and most laundromats do not allow cloth diapers to be washed there due to sanitary concerns. This can lead to babies being kept in dirty diapers for extended periods of time, causing both physical and emotional suffering for so many little ones.
