It was time for my 15 month old’s follow up visit to the doctor’s office. I took off her clothes for her weight as always and she had already wet her Flip insert. No problem. I told my honey to please bring me the diaper bag where I had a BabyKicks in orange. I always try to bring the prettiest brightest diapers to the doctor’s office. She came back without the bag and said, “Uh, did you bring it?” In horror I realized that I pushed the stroller there and there was no diaper bag dangling off the handle as usual. Thinking quickly I said, “Bring me the receiving blanket!” I could do a pad fold and voila! A fresh diaper. I just reused the liner that was on top of the Flip, after all it’s a stay-dry. I had no wipes and no wet bag. I had to put the Flip in a plastic bag that my sweetheart had in her backpack. I figured the girl who works there didn’t have any disposables or she knew I didn’t use them so she didn’t offer me one. Nevertheless my baby girl was dry and happyâ¦ then she did something she never did before.
She pooped at the doctor’s office! Oh. My Gosh. Okay, it’s on a liner and she hadn’t wet the flat. No problem. My sweetheart disposed of the liner for me with the waste in it in the office’s bathroom while I wiped the baby with wet paper towels. I turned the receiving blanket turned into a flat inside out and she had a clean dry diaper. Thank goodness I used her brother’s old diaper cover that trip! And I mean old. He’s 17. She’s usually in a pocket diaper. This cover is holding up remarkably well after 18 years! Thank goodness I know about flats from BumGenius and the Flats Challenge through Diapershops. Whew! Crisis averted.
