We did it! We Stuffed the Bus!
We collected over 400,000 diapers this summer! We are so grateful for those of you who hosted diaper drives, collected basics for babies, donated hygiene items, and used our Amazon Wishlist to get these most needed items delivered to WestSide Baby.
Keep the donations coming! We still have work to do. Based on our recent survey from our Provider Partners, the demand for these basics is still high with their clients. We will meet the needs of our community by continuing to collect only unopened diapers, wipes, & hygiene items. Bring these items to WestSide Baby locations to keep little ones safe, warm and dry!

WestSide Baby believes all babies should have the diapers they need. You believe that all babies should have the diapers they need. Yet the fact is, 23% of King County families struggle to afford diapers. Our social safety net does not ensure equal access for Black, Indigenous, and POC families who experience diaper need at rates over twice the average. COVID-19 has made diaper need even more complex—but your actions during this time can still be simple.
Stuff the Bus is Seattle’s largest diaper drive and is your opportunity to collect diapers to ensure all babies have diapers to be healthy and happy. Host a virtual diaper drive, donate dollars for diapers, subscribe to a monthly diaper subscription, or simply send a box of diapers to WestSide Baby today! #Diapersforallbabies

Why Stuff the Bus?
A newborn needs up to 14 diapers a day which can average $100/month. In fact, 23% of families in King County struggle to afford diapers and suffer from diaper need, a lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep a baby clean, dry and healthy.
