I can’t believe that I’ll be holding a baby in my arms in a matter of months. A baby!!!
I’m excited, overjoyed, and only slightly overwhelmed, lol, but we are gearing up to welcome this precious blessing to the family.
As much as I’ve been preparing mentally and emotionally, I’ve finally begun to nest and gather some essentials. It’s crazy to me to think of all the baby things that will be back in our household, such as a crib, swing, play pen, tiny clothes, and all the diapers and wipes we’ll be needing!
While this is a joyous time of planning and prepping, I’m very aware of the increase in costs that are heading our way and am truly thankful for having the things we need.
Sadly this isn’t the case for everyone, including the one-in-three families in the U.S. who struggle to provide diapers for their baby.
It wasn’t until recently that I learned just how many experience diaper need. Whether it’s your first little one or 3rd, there’s so much for parents to potentially stress about and I hate the thought of this being an issue for anyone!
It’s nothing that any of us should take for granted, but the good news is there’s a way to help!!
With your help and mine, Huggies and Walgreens will donate 1.5 million diapers and 250,000 wipes nationwide to the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN)!!
This is such a great and simple way to give back!
As Lily and I were shopping at Walgreens the other day, I couldn’t help but think that she was just in diapers and now she’s helping me pick them out for her baby brother or sister.
It’s surreal, but also felt wonderful to know that I was able to tell her that these diapers would help more than our new addition. They would also help other families near and far.
The next time you’re heading to the store to grab diapers for yourself or that mama friend, I encourage you to look for Huggies® diapers at Walgreens and maybe one day, diaper need will be a thing of the past.
