  • what documentation do I need to sign up?

    You will need the following to sign up to receive diaper assistance from HappyBottoms: ID for your child that contains their name and date of birth (for example Medicaid card, shot record, passport, birth certificate)

  • I applied for my child to receive diapers and haven't heard anything back yet, what now?

    Applications are approved Mondays and Wednesdays. After that, if approved, you should receive an email with instructions about next steps.

  • how many and how often can I get diapers?

    HappyBottoms gives each child 75 diapers (Size Newborn through Size 6) or 50 training pants (2/3T, 3/4T, 4/5T) per month.

  • how long can my baby get diapers?

    Your child can get diapers until they turn 4 years old.

  • can I get diapers from more than one agency?

    Unfortunately, no. Each child can get a maximum of 75 diapers or 50 training pants per month from a single agency each month.

  • my current agency is not convenient for me, can I get my diapers from a different agency?

    Yes, if you have a legitimate reason, you can transfer agencies.  Please let your current agency know and they will help you with the transfer.

  • i’m a foster parent. can I get diapers?

    Children in foster care may qualify for the HappyBottoms program according to the same guidelines used for all families (see above).

  • do you provide diapers for special needs children?

    At this time, HappyBottoms only provides diapers to children under the age of four. The diapers we provide are standard baby diapers or pull-ups in the normally offered sizes. So if you have a special kiddo under the age of four who needs help getting diapers or pull ups, we would love to help. If your child is older than four and needs diapers, we would suggest talking with your doctor about getting diapers covered through Medicaid.

  • do you provide adult diapers?

    HappyBottoms only provides baby diapers and pull-ups to children under the age of four. If you or a loved one is struggling to obtain adult diapers, we would suggest speaking with your doctor about getting diapers covered through Medicare or Medicaid.

  • do you provide anything besides diapers?

    The HappyBottoms mission is to provide diapers to families in need in Kansas City and raise awareness about diaper need; therefore, we only distribute diapers.
