Thank you to everyone who offered to help me. Thank you for the suggestions also. I didn't come here to beg, just needed to vent a bit. You women are AMAZING!!!!

We dont get paid until Wednesday so I am trying to sell anything I can to get the diapers. I'm listing anything I think will sell on CL but nobody is responding!! How embarrassing....anyone else ever go through this?? I have enough for tonight and some swim diapers but I dont think those will work well :/

I have and honestly. When it was really bad. if there was a poopy diaper ya know one that was like solid, i would get the poop out and put it back on my baby. Sometimes there are no choices. Also.....air time is good Im not sure how old your baby is, because its easier when they are not as mobil to put a towel down and let them go naked. You cando that when they are walking around too, you just have to be right there incase they start peeing unexpectedly.

Good luck with CL I have never gotten responses when trying to sell stuff on there.

Maybe if you have family/friend/neighboor you can tlak to to see if they can buy you diapers that you can repay them when you get the money

Also, even if they do not work well, the swim diapers are better then nothing.

put them in underwear, put them on her onsies... they dont hold much but its enough, since you have swim diapers put them in there as well

Contact Churches, they usually have diapers, and check to see if there is a birthright in your area.

You are an awesome Mom to be willing to sell your things for diapers. Many parents wouldn't. Can you borrow money from someone? If worst comes to worst put a towel on the baby.

Do you have a place that gives food to people? Ours is called a food pantry. They will give you diapers or a voucher for diapers if you call them. If you often run out I'd recommend buying at least one package of cloth diapers for the next time this happens.

You've got to do what you've got to do.  Why are you short on money though?
