Baby Care and Family Care net sales increased 9% to $3.8 billion for the quarter on 10% volume growth. Organic sales grew 7% behind volume growth, partially offset by negative product mix impacts and pricing. Volume growth was broad based with all major geographic regions contributing mid-single digits or higher to volume growth. Volume in Baby Care grew in the double-digit range primarily due to share growth, market size expansion and trade inventory increases to support the launch of Dry Max in North America.
