Starting with this week's Diapering in an an emergency situations! Here's a sneak peak, go to the RDC website for the whole thing... click the RDC SDG tag on the main menu...

School of Cloth
Week 1: Emergency Diapering

We've all been there. You're in the middle of the drying cycle on your cloth diapers, just crossing your fingers that last diaper holds up until you're done... and your baby decides, as usual, now is the perfect time to have a nice big bowel movement. You smell it a mile away and you know they can't sit in it long enough for the load to be dry. Or, maybe you're out longer then you anticipated, you didn't bring enough diapers with you, now you're an hour from home, and your baby is leaking out of the diaper. OR maybe it's a worse scenario, you're in a shelter because there is a massive storm with high winds that may be a hurricane... you've got limited supplied at your disposal and you've forgotten or misjudged the amount of diapers needed. What now?

This calls for emergency measures! Some of these measures even can be used by disposable users!

Receiving Blankets. They're great for quick bundle ups, swaddling, spit cloths... and prefolds! Flannel and cotton prefolds make great cloth diapers. Some people even use them regularly. Back when I started diapering, when I only had enough for a day or two with my now almost 6 year old, I used these during wash time! You can use a fleece pant, a regular cover, wool, or even let them roam free in just a prefold. Here are some examples of receiving blanket diapers, from some youtube videos I randomly pulled... these are just some examples!
