Ok ladies I need help being creative here! I will soon be out of diapers and the nearest store that carries them is an hour drive and since it's snowing and not letting up, that drive isn't gonna happen. I know being this far out I should have cloth just incase but I don't yet and after this I plan on getting them soon. I thought about ordering them online but were not on a  normal mail route, Yeah were that out there that if the mailman dosen't feel safe coming to town I'm not getting my mail, packages included. He's generally pretty good about making it but I can't rely on it.

Anyway ladies if you have creative diaper substitutes PLEASE PLEASE let me know!

Feb. 2, 2008 at 4:00 PM I agree with that towels would be good and absorbant. Any neibors have little ones who may have extra training underware? Ummm yeah thats about all I can think of that and try to leave the diapers on a bit longer as long as they aren't too wet.

Feb. 2, 2008 at 4:00 PM My friend showed up in a snow storm one year.  I lived in Pennsylvania and she lived in Georgia.  Her son david wore a towel covered with a plastic trash bag tied on the sides.  He never had so much fun in the snow. Wish I had the picture to send.  I take it the "babies" aren't ready for the potty?  Good Luck!

Well kennyis 2 and has been trying to potty train just hasnt really got the hang of it so were trying to use his underware. But sammy is only! Unfortunately they are 2 of 3 babys that I know of in town and the other baby is younger then the bolth of them so borrowing isnt an option.

I think i need to get a load of towels and unders washed before the power goes out again!
