Hey Y’all, it’s Erin. I’m not sure how familiar you are with the phrase “diaper crisis.” I want to talk to you about what diaper crisis means, how families are dealing with it and how cloth diapers can help.
For me, the hardest part was the guilt.
There are so many feelings of guilt around Postpartum Depression.
Bringing a new baby into this world is supposed to be a blessed time full of happiness. So, when you feel anything but blessed and happy, guilt is often inevitable.
I didn’t deal with postpartum depression with my first, at all. With my second I only had a mild case of baby blues the first couple of weeks. So, when I was struggling with severe depression after the birth of my third baby, the guilt over feeling less joy for him ate at me.
Lil Helper Cloth Diapers in Malawi
We are always deeply humbled to be able to ease the burden on a family dealing with diaper need. But, every now and then we come across a great opportunity to make a huge difference. Making a difference means so much to us at Lil Helper. It reminds us that this is why we do what we do! The Baby Do Good program was recently able to work with an amazing project. We were given the opportunity to partner with Venue Church in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. Venue Church members Jenny and Dan Strilzuk took 30 lbs of Lil Helper diapers to Monkey Bay in Malawi, Africa!
