  • Oh wow, lol.  I've done the pad thing.  I've used tshirts, bandannas, etc.  Just about everything I could find I had to use.

  • Anything that can wrap snugly around a little booty has been used as a diaper in an emergency lol

  • I have never had to use something other than diapers but I did run out of newborn diapers during a photo shoot one day so I had to put a size 4 on my 1 week old so that was interesting. I have read that using pads on a diaper that is placed on a child backwards is a solution for those that keep taking their diaper off. The pad helps absorb stuff since the diaper is on backwards :) Also using pads for bedtime for a heavy wetter :)
