This Mother's Day, President Obama renewed his pledge to address the "diaper gap" in the U.S.
Back in March, the Obama administration launched an effort to make diapers more affordable to families in need. According to a White House blog post, nearly a third of American families struggle to afford diapers.
Diapers are expensive — the administration noted that low-income families spend more than $900 a year per child on diapers. The cost forces many to choose between "buying diapers and paying for food, rent or utilities like heat."
