Every now and again, a diaper disaster occurs. A mother will find herself with a deplorably stinky diaper, but no fresh ones to replace it. It happened to me once on an airplane. I took the diaper bag to the tiny bathroom with the malodorous tot and after cleaning her bum, realized the diapers were packed in my other bag which was in the overhead 20 rows away. Sweating, I took a small tree's worth of paper towels and heavily padded my daughter's lower region hoping to make it last for a little while. How I wished for my other bag or some duct tape then.
What have you used in a diaperless emergency?
