In a pinch, wrap soiled clothes in a clean diaper
Tami left this tip on the Parent Hacks Facebook page:
I was out and about with my one-year-old and he had a diaper blow-out. I had a change of clothes, but I didn't have a bag for the soiled clothes. What did I do? I wrapped up the soiled clothes in an extra (unused) diaper so I could safely stash it in my bag for the remainder of my outing.
We've all been there -- diaper blow-out, or spontaneous regurgitation, or whatever other bodily mishap comes with parenting -- and we have no bag.
This is the perfect opportunity to put used Ziploc bags to work. The ones that aren't clean enough to reuse with food, but are perfect for containing wet, stinky clothes or diapers. (This, by the way, is why plastic grocery bags are terrible for the job -- they usually have little holes in the bottom.)
But how do you remember to restock your diaper bag when you get home? We've got a hack for that, too.
