  Each year Americans alone throw away 18 billion disposable diapers. In perspective, this is enough to extend from the earth to the moon and back 7 times. ABC News states that disposable diapers may make potty training harder than if a young child wears cloth diapers, because disposable diapers are very absorbent, and children do not feel the wetness as easily as when they wear cloth diapers. That dry feeling makes it harder for them to know it's time to go to the potty or if they've already urinated. Infants require approximately 12 diapers per day and toddlers need 8. In the first two years, the average baby will require between 5000 to 7000 diaper changes. It can cost over $100 per month for an adequate supply of diapers. Government aid programs (WIC, Food Stamps, Medicare) do not allow low-income families to purchase diapers. Before disposable diapers were introduced, all babies in North America were diapered in cloth. Within 10 years of the arrival of disposable diapers on the market, the number of cloth diaper users quickly dwindled to 10 per cent. Prince William was the first heir to the throne to wear disposable diapers. Diaper lover (or DL for short) is the popular term for a person who feels a strong desire to wear or use. Did you know adult diapers outsell baby diapers in America? Red diaper baby describes a child of parents who were members of the Communist Party (CPUSA) or were close to the party or sympathetic to its aims. Barack Obama is a Red diaper baby who has spent his formative years -- literally from the moment of his birth -interacting with members and sympathizers of the Communist Party.
