Giving Back This Holiday Season

With so many families in need, support other parents by purchasing Huggies diapers at Kroger stores and they'll donate to the National Diaper Bank Network



.

There is absolutely no doubt about it: Babies are expensive. From all the baby gear to the daycare, then all the way through sports fees, outgrown-too-quickly-clothes and even on to college tuition, kids are no small expense! It's completely overwhelming at times. Especially during the holidays when you want to create something special for your children, but the reality is you're struggling to make ends meet every week. But there's a super easy way for you to help families in need: From November 8 through December 5, when you buy one big pack or two jumbo packs of Huggies diapers at Kroger, you'll get a FREE pack of wipes. Better yet, they'll donate a whole day's worth of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network, a valuable resource for parents struggling to meet their baby's diaper needs. Give backthis holiday season!


After Henry was born, I didn't notice the cost of diapers because I was too busy gawking at the expense of formula. I think my poor new mom brain was so maxed out, it could only focus on one shocking expense at a time! I'm sure my husband would answer differently, as the finance manager of the house. After Otto was born, and I had two kids under two and two in diapers, I remember being FLOORED whenever I went on a diaper run. Diapers and wipes for two babiesis no joke! There was more than a few times I wondered how single parents do it.



Huge selection of Huggies at Kroger!

And it's not just me. Here's the reality: In a recent study completed by Huggies and the National Diaper Bank Network, more than one in three - 36 PERCENT - of US families struggle with diaper need, which is the ability to provide enough diapers to keep their babies and toddlers clean and healthy. Thirty-Six. Percent. To meet this drastic need, Huggies has partnered with Kroger to donate up to a million diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network, a national nonprofit dedicated to meeting the basic needs of babies and their families.

By purchasing Huggies diapers at Kroger stores, you can help families in need. Just pick up a big pack or two jumbo packs of Huggies® diapers, score your free wipes, and know that you've gifted a family an entire day of diapers for theirbaby or toddler.

Now that I only have one kid in full time diapers, the struggle has become easier. Otto even helps me carry them in from the car while Henry gets my Kroger shopping bags (I'm not kidding. These kids LOVE to help!) They also love to play... After a diaper change, Otto doesn't sit still enough to put his pants back on! Then Henry gets jealous and wants to go pantsless. Ahhhhhhh, toddlers.



Join me in giving back this holiday season. If you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't struggle to meet your baby's diaper needs, head over to Kroger and pick up some Huggies®. You'll be helping ONE THIRD of US families who can't meet their child's needs. The world is a better place when we can all pitch in and help each other.

  1. Otto has gotten SO LONG. I mean, I've always known your kids are tall, but that photo of him on the fireplace?? His legs are as long as mine! I wish I was kidding.

  3. Otto is about as tall as Henry! We have a Kroger across the street from us so we will definitely be helping out this season.
