.... to avoid sposies... see, Ezra has been CD'd from birth and has NEVER ever had a sposie on. It is, obviously, a point of pride for Mike and I.<br><br>
Okay... we like to change ds right after he wets (we have a lot of laundry but no rashes so it works for us). Some days, he morphs into Super PeePee Man and wets through more dipes then we anticipated. I always pack the diaper bag as if we may never come home, so on my watch this is not a problem. However, Mike tends to take only what he 'thinks he will need' (silly, silly man... have I taught him *nothing*?) and ds will often be in the last dipe as we head home for the day.<br><br>
Well, last week, we are at the chiropractor's office and Mike informs me that ds is in The Last Diaper. This, of course, is the verbal cue ds was waiting for and he promptly soaked said Last Diaper. We are just about to have our adjustments... what to do?<br><br>
Mind you, Rite Aid is across the street, and I could easily just go score some sposies. This, however, would send Mike into a seizure as he is more CD militant then I am. He was getting ready to give up his tee shirt to wrap ds's bum in till we got home, but I had another idea. So I dug through the diaper bag and decided that my Happy Tushies changing pad, with the quilted underpart on the inside and the pattern on the outside, would make a stylish improv diaper. I folded a SMJAE wipe in half as a soaker and wrapped tape around Ezra's waist to secure the whole elaborate contraption. Voila! Ghetto Diaper.<br><br>
So... how far will you go to keep your babe out of sposies? Or am I just nuts? :LOL<br><br>

That is great! :LOL I only ran out once, during dd's 4 days of potty training- it was actually day one- I took the dipes away and gave her underwear and went out to MOMs club(I was insane but it seemed logical at the time) and she peed through her clothes and spare outfit. I ended up putting the spare Bumkin I had in the car on her which she promptly had a BM in and I had no wipes or diapers... my friend Kim gave me a disposable and I took it. I looked at it for a moment - thinking this is a diaper?<br><br>
(Dd was potty-trained 3 days later... still remember that disposable...)

:LOL Cute, XM!<br><br>
I once wrapped dear godson's bum in several tea towels when we *really* got stranded with no alternative.<br><br>
And on a 10-day vacation abroad I had brought a few "emergency" sposies but was trying not to use them... on the night before we travelled home I washed a day's worth of fuzzi buns & prefolds in the hotel's sink for the flight home the next day. I still laugh at how I carried those 10 sposies across the ocean and back. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>

oh gosh - I've done hand towels, rags from the rag pile at mom's, and 2 t-shirts stacked together. The neck goes at the back, and the sleeves are the wings you pin!

Flannel blanket with a walmart bag underneath to protect the car seat once when we were out and about.<br><br>
Meredith's sweatshirt - no pins - layed Kenny down on it with the arms at right and left for wings, pulled up the bottom (came way up close to his neck), wrapped the arms and tied the in a knot - folded down the band (that usually is at the bottom of the sweatshirt) over the 'wings' that were tied in a knot. VERY THICK, but worked in a pinch and we WENT HOME to get diapers!

I'm an overpacker and keep extras that I don't like in the car (along with sposies that I don't use in case of natural disaster away from home).

I'm an overpacker too, but I just keep the one diaper that Huggies sent me in my glove compartment, in case of earthquake. Although, I think if there is an earthquake I'll take the baby and the diapers! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">
