School of Cloth is an annual, month-long event with cloth diaper classes hosted by Real Diaper Circles, Real Diaper Association businesses, and cloth diapering veterans. If you attend a class, you can receive certificates and enter to win a cloth diapering package. If you win, you can select a cloth diaper charity, like Giving Diapers Giving Hope, to receive a matching prize! Every week, I’ll cover a different topic, and invite you to link your blog posts as well. This week’s topic is emergency cloth diapering.
Every diaper, cloth or disposable, is virtually the same. A water resistant layer, an absorbent material, and sometimes an inner layer. If you’re in a pinch, almost anything can be a diaper.
If you have a cloth diaper cover, you’re golden. Use a flour sack towel, kitchen towel or even a t-shirt as your absorbency and you’re on your way.
The Eco Friendly Family has an amazing no-sew t-shirt diaper tutorial and Dirty Diaper Laundry shows you how to turn a t-shirt into two flats. If you don’t have a cover, pin closed and change often or make a no-sew fleece cover from a blanket.
Have you ever DIY’d a diaper?
