Thanks to Maryanna for this Frugal Baby Tip!

This may sound a little drastic to some people, but when my daughter got to that stage [where she wouldn't lay still for diaper changes], I started changing her on the floor, and would lay her down between my legs, then put my ankles over her arms so she couldn't roll away. This is the only way I could change a poopy diaper without having her wiggle and get it all over the place.



About Catherine: I have been writing my Frugal Baby Tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three grown up sons, and a grandma - and happily married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a rescue cat, Bella.

Taking care of baby and mom needs naturally, does not have to cost a whole lot of money! Money-saving tips on diapering, diaper washing, safety, sling and baby carriers, toys, clothing, nursing, menstrual needs, traveling with kids, and more!
