COVID-19 continues to be a pain in the rear. This time, for babies.

One in three American families is experiencing a diaper shortage, according to a 2020 report from the National Diaper Bank Network.

However, experts say that number likely increased during the pandemic, which continues to disrupt the global supply chain.

That caused manufacturers to increase their prices, putting a strain on families struggling to get by, and causing a diaper depletion at stores nationwide.
