Research Shows A Third of All Mothers Can't Afford Diapers
Study finds a link between lack of funds and mental illness afflictions
The study's authors examined the responses of a survey about the basic needs, health care, and mental health care use from 877 mothers and pregnant women in New Haven, Connecticut.
The study's authors found that women who experienced trouble paying for diapers were more likely to suffer from mental health afflictions than those who were readily able to pay for such necessities.
The study thus suggests that helping mothers provide basic needs such as diapers provided stronger “tangible ways to reduce parenting stress” according to the researchers.
Adequate supplies of diapers cost nearly $1,000 per year, per child, according to the study. For mothers working full-time on federal hourly wage jobs, diapers could be nearly 6% of all costs, says the researchers.
Women are unable to use government assistance programs such as food stamps to pay for diapers, said one researcher. Tips for how to curtail this unfortunate truth was the video from WPIX in New York. Signing up for newsletters from Pampers or Huggies often provides coupons, while becoming a member of Amazon Mom can also help.
Across the board, if one is willing to put up with being pitched to on a regular basis, one can also receive coupons and price reductions on things such as diapers. BabyCheapskate.com is a baby-oriented deals blog, while the national Diaper Bank Network, which donates diapers to diaper banks are both quality options as well.
The link between mental health and a lack of ability to pay for diapers is an unnecessary problem to be experiencing as a first-world culture. Unfortunately, so many are without quality paying jobs and worthwhile career futures, that it is a reality. Thus, many mothers are subject to stress that goes beyond the average everyday levels that one ought deal with.
