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 […]
via www.skiptomylou.org Cindy couldn't just stop at one great towel hack (linked in my post about how well the Turbie Twist towel wrap works for kids).
