Babies Hula Through Summer With New Huggies Hawaiian Diapers
Tropical-Inspired Diaper Allows Babies Everywhere to Dress "Cute for a Cause"
DALLAS, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- Huggies is helping babies everywhere dress "Cute for a Cause" this summer with the new limited-edition Huggies Little Movers Hawaiian Diapers. These fun and fashionable diapers – available May through July – allow your little one to show off his or her tropical side by strutting around in the coolest and cutest diaper of the season. Whether you're at the beach or taking a trip – dressing your little ones in Huggies latest design diaper also helps a good cause. For every pack of Huggies Hawaiian Diapers and Wipes purchased, the Huggies Every Little Bottom program will diaper a baby in need for one day*.
"Diapers are a basic need for all babies. Many families are often forced to cut back on basic necessities such as food or utilities in order to provide diapers for their children," said Erik Seidel, Vice President, Huggies Brand. "This summer, parents can dress their little ones in Huggies Hawaiian Diapers to be 'Cute for a Cause' no matter where they are – on summer break at home or a vacation – and contribute to the fight against diaper need."
Like all Huggies Little Movers Diapers, Huggies Hawaiian Diapers are shaped to fit to provide proven leakage protection – with an added tropical twist. Limited-Edition Huggies Hawaiian Wipes will offer a fun, tropical-inspired design, allowing mom to stylishly accessorize. They will be available nationwide from May through July at select retail outlets where diapers are sold and are available in sizes two to five.
"These tropical designs allow moms to accessorize baby with ease for hot summer day trips and especially for family vacations," said Shelly Rivoli, author of "Travels with Baby." "After diapering babies on four different continents, I know how important it is to plan simply and only bring necessities for trips. With the right products on hand like Huggies Hawaiian Diapers, you might only need a hat and sunscreen for your little one!"

About Huggies Every Little Bottom
Huggies Every Little Bottom has a single mission - to help get diapers to babies in need in the U.S. and Canada. The program was developed in response to a ground breaking new study that revealed the critical issue of diaper need. Diaper need is the struggle to provide babies with diapers. Today, 1 in 3 American and 1 in 5 Canadian mothers struggle with diaper need, and have had to cut back on basics - food, utilities such as heat or electricity, or even childcare - in order to provide enough diapers for their babies. With the support of partner organizations, grassroots efforts and moms across the country, the program will build awareness of the issue and work to create a long-term solution.
