I'm Desperate Advice Please!!!

Posting this makes me feel lower than low but I need suggestions!!!

I sold all of my cding supplies when my MDD potty trained, not expecting to have another baby soon. The new baby is getting really bad rashes from sposies and I have a bunch of them from gifts (we had planned on using them and buying cloth when we ran out). But I don't have the money to buy cloth right now, things are just extremely tight. What can I do????? Are there things I can use from around the house, blankets ect? I knew you all would have good suggestions for me. Thank you in advance!!

ETA- I did buy a cover from FSOT this week with what I had in PP, so that will help!

Do you have a snappi or pins still? You could use the receiving blankets and even some kitchen towels as flats. Search for some threads on flat folds.

The other night, my diapers were still damp from the laundry and I ended up using one of my burp cloths as a diaper insert. It worked great! It was just a terry cloth burp cloth that I folded in half and put inside a cover.

Yep, recieving blankets and the cheap diaper pins from walmart are actually pretty good. Grab a couple of cheap covers off of FSOT and that should get you through till you can afford to build a better stash.

Oh, and the no-sew t-shirt daiper is awesome. I've actually gotten a couple just because I loved the pics on the front of it so much I had to turn it into a diaper. http://www.cloth-diapers-made-easy.c...rt-diaper.html

Well, Im not sure if you are interested, and they will be a little big still, but I have a dozen pf's I am not using I would give you if you paid the $10 for the flat rate box to ship them in. They are 13x14, so a bit big for baby, but would fit with some folding down. pm me if you want them : )

This is what I was going to suggest! It works so well too.
