Changing Diapers, Changing Lives

Thank You Holland Junior Welfare League

HJWL Train PantsThank You Holland Junior Welfare League!

For the Grant Gift that allowed Nestlings to purchase 5,796 Training Pants in the most needed size of 4T-5T for the children of low income families.

Training Pants play an important role in potty training.  They help teach the ability to pull pants up and down. Learning to use the toilet and potty training is a milestone in a child’s development and consistency is a very important part of the learning and training process.  Switching from training pants to diapers confuses children and they have trouble staying on track.

Potty training shouldn’t be stressful for children and thanks to the Holland Junior Welfare League’s grant gift over 400 children will have Training Pants available that will allow for a healthy transition during an important step in their growth and development.

Nestlings  appreciates all the work and support of the Holland Junior Welfare League.  Thank You so much for all you continually do to benefit the children of our community

Thank You Meijer and Huggies for the Diaper Donation

A big Thank You goes out to Meijer and Huggies for the donation of 50,000 diapers to Nestlings and a $10,000 check to the National Diaper Bank Network. These companies are working to help bridge the gap of diaper need.  Thousands of babies will be dry, happy and healthy thanks to them. Without community minded organizations like these, Nestlings could not help the littlest members of our community.  These little community members are the futures of our societies and anything to help them get a head start in life can have a positive impact.  Thank you to all supporters of Nestlings and the babies.

Thank You Holland Junior Welfare League

20150602_161828A little package of baby wipes is something that may seem common and simple to many, but can provide so much to those in need.

Baby wipes are specially made to cleanse the sensitive skin of babies and infants. Utilizing other papers or towelettes, such as tissue or alcohol based cleaners, can cause rashes and sores on their delicate little skin. Even the way the wipes are packaged becomes important to a baby’s health, since it allows the wipes to stay moist and not be exposed to environmental hazards such as bacteria or dirt. And, most caregivers would agree – you can’t beat the convenience of a portable package of wipes!

In the US today, diaper wipes have become an essential part of diaper changing, particularly because disposable diapers don’t work well to wipe off solids and disposable diapers tend to smear the residue around. Wipes were well researched and invented to make this a more gentle and sanitary process. Baby Wipes make happy babies and happy caregivers.

Thanks to Holland Junior Welfare League, Nestlings has 1,530 new packages of wipes to distribute in our community. The Holland Junior Welfare League is a wonderful supporter of our community’s children, their futures and Nestlings Diaper Bank.
