Moms Supporting Moms: A Mum & You Partnership
Moms of Mum & You
Being a mom is one of the most euphoric and, at times, challenging adventures this life will give us. No one understands this thrilling ride better than other moms!
Born in Britain by a team of moms, Mum & You’s mission is grounded in creating high performing, convenient and sustainable products designed to make mom’s life easier.
At the heart of Mum & You are the moms, babies and environment we lovingly nurture through the creation of safe, gentle, and eco-friendly products delivered directly to your doorstep.
To further pay our mission forward we pledge to support moms in need with every purchase.
Through our partnership with Moms Helping Moms, Mum & You proudly donates one package of our eco-friendly diapers for every subscription purchased.
Read about our partnership with this amazing foundation that truly reflects Mum & You’s mission and just how far our brand extends its impact.
A Partnership Grounded in Helping Moms:
Introducing the Moms Helping Moms Foundation:
Creating high-performing, eco-friendly products that are safe for babies and moms, delivered right when you need them, is one of the many ways Mum & You continually lives out its mission.
But behind our exceptionally convenient eco-friendly products, stands our most important focus: the moms and babies who use them.
That is why we decided to partner with a charity that, like Mum & You, makes life easier for moms. Moms Helping Moms is a foundation that was created to ensure that no baby should ever have to go without life’s basic necessities.
A New Jersey based charity, Moms Helping Moms provides essential baby items to low income families; ensuring that their children have a safe, happy and healthy start.

Founder, Bridget Cutler describes how their small foundation has expanded: “we’ve grown into a large network of passionate, caring individuals who continuously work together to help moms, babies and young children year after year”. And their work continues to prove to be so beneficial to the families they touch each day.
‘Every subscription ensures that another family can enjoy safe, gentle, eco-friendly baby products' ~Mum & You~
In response to the COVID global pandemic, Moms Helping Moms more than doubled it’s diaper distribution number and more than tripled the number of individuals they served in 2019.
This was all made possible through the collaboration of brands and companies such as Mum & You.
In 2020, Moms Helping Moms has served 101,127 people in need including the distribution of 633, 915 diapers. By expanding their partnerships, Moms Helping Moms continues to expand their reach.
Measuring the Impact
Currently there are 5.3 million children in the United States ages three or younger that live in poor or low income families*.
Having to choose between food and diapers should never need to be a decision any mom has to face.
Yet, at least 1 in 3 American families report a lack of sufficient supply of diapers to keep their infants and young children clean, dry and healthy.
As a brand who creates eco-friendly diapers and products for babies and moms everywhere, Mum & You’s partnership with Moms Helping Moms was simply meant to be.
Here’s more on why diapers for little ones are a big deal:
- Infants require up to 12 diapers per day, toddlers about 8.
- Disposable diapers cost $70.00 to $80.00 per month per baby
- Without transportation, buying diapers at a convenience store rather than a large “big box” store can significantly increase the monthly cost of diapers.
- Currently there are no state or federal child safety-net programs that allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers.
Diapers cannot be obtained with food stamps
“Together with our supporters, we are working to end diaper need and fight childhood poverty in New Jersey. We will not rest until our services are no longer needed. We are so thankful to all of you who help us make this happen every day.”~ Bridget Cutler, Founder Moms Helping Moms Foundation
The Importance of Impact: Partnering for Moms and Babies
The synergy between Mum & You and Moms Helping Moms has created a greater impact, one that as a brand Mum & You could only imagine.
As Moms Helping Moms shares, “by providing safe and environmentally friendly products to mothers all over the world, you’re not only taking care of them today, but you’re also taking care of them in the future...it is very clear your products are made with care and compassion”.
By establishing a connection with Moms Helping Moms, Mum & You extends beyond the creation of our carefully crafted eco-friendly diapers and products by ensuring their accessibility for moms in need.
For every purchase of one of Mum & You’s convenient subscriptions, you not only impact your own family, but another family in need.
Mum & You’s Partnership with Moms Helping Moms is vital to their organization. As the foundation indicates, partnerships grant them the ability to serve more people and pave the way for advocacy and spreading awareness of diaper need as an issue in our communities.
‘It’s great to be able to fulfill extra wishlist necessities that are essential to infant care and Mum & You is making that happen’ ~Moms Helping Moms Foundation~
The consistent source of diapers and other essential product donations provides the foundation with the reassurance that we can continue to meet the increasing need in our community.
Purchasing a subscription at Mum & You ensures that another family can enjoy our gently made, eco friendly diapers and therefore, providing children with a happy, healthy start to life.
Wrapping it Up- One Family at a Time:
Creating safe, gentle, biodegradable, eco-friendly products for moms is just one of the ways that Mum & You brings its mission to life. Stepping out and giving access to those products demonstrates the dedication of a completely mom created, mom directed brand grounded in making life easier for moms.
“We hope to be able to provide as much assistance as we can, but we can’t do it alone,states Bridget Cutler, MHM Founder and Executive Director. “We are so grateful for companies like Mum & You who are assisting us in our mission to provide children in NJ with a healthy, happy start to life by getting them the basics they deserve.”
