  • I wouldn't think anything... I'd just ask what kind of help she needs.

  • I would probably just think that she's a mother of three with another one on the way going through a tough time.

    I'm not quick to judge someone, especially if I don't know that person well.

  • It happens. There were times that I found it hard to buy diapers too. I have 3 kids. Sometimes life is a struggle.

  • Probably would depend if she couldn't afford them at the moment, or if that was an ongoing thing with her. If it was ongoing, I would talk to her and see if there was anything I could do to help her situation. If it was just one of those things, like their car broke and when they had it fixed it didn't leave enough for diapers, I would just offer to buy some diapers until they got back on their feet!

  • I wouldn't think anything. For all I know is she had or her s/o had a great job and had to take a pay cut or got laid off. Just depends on the situation. But, I don't pass judgement. My husband had a great job when I got pregnant with our 3rd and after she was born he got laid off.
    I have a friend who is a single mom and when she had her son she really struggled. I helped her with diapers and even bought her son a couple of outfits because he was so tiny and she had nothing that fit him. I also bought her wipes. She was so grateful because a snow storm was coming and it was bitter cold out and she didn't want to take her days old son out in the weather to go buy diapers and wipes.
