5 Great Places to Donate Extra Diapers

By Katie |

A friend of mine text messaged me yesterday to let me know that her 3 month old had sized up in diapers to a size 2 and to see if we wanted the rest of her size 1s. Now, we’re still phasing out the newborn diapers, but soon Eli will need the 1s, so I happily took her up on the offer.

Then I got to thinking- what are we going to do with all our extras? We bought a HUGE box of newborn diapers, only to discover a few days in that Eli has crazy sensitive skin and would be needing the hypoallergenic version of that brand. We can’t use this big pack of diapers and I don’t have any friends with new, tiny babies.

So I did a little research and found 5 great places we can donate extra diapers.

Locations for Donating Extra Diapers

The local women/children's shelter

When I called they were thrilled to tell me that yes, they happily took diapers, and while they preferred them in the original package (open or not) they would take them regardless.
