Study examines health risks from lack of diapers

Monday, July 29, 2013

A new study shows that not having adequate diapers is a real health problem for babies and moms.

Yale researchers found nearly one in three low-income moms don't have enough diapers. Leaving a soiled diaper on too long can lead to urinary tract infections and serious diaper rashes. The lack of diapers also causes depression in moms.

A Bay Area-based non-profit called "Help a mother out" raises diaper donations for social service agencies.
