For My Baby NYC

For My Baby NYC  a volunteer-led program aiming to support Teen moms living in the Tri- State Area & Long Island who are struggling to meet the financial and practical burden of looking after a new baby .

The program  focuses on providing  baby care supplies including clothing, strollers etc. to alleviate some of the burden the Moms face on a daily basis.

 

 

This is done through our 2 core services:

  • The Emergency Pantry
  • Baby Helper Hampers

 

FAST FACTS

  • 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 or WIC.
  • No State or Federal child safety 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.

 

NEGATIVE CONSEQUENCES

  • Babes 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.
  • A study published in the medical journal Pediatrics found a link between maternal depressive symptoms and diaper need.
