CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Reports indicate that one in three American families is experiencing a diaper shortage.

That's according to a 2020 report from the National Diaper Bank Network.

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

The scarcity has also caused manufacturers to increase their prices.
