Thanks to Kathy for this Frugal Baby Tip!

When baby won't lay still to get a diaper changed: I've cut out magazine pictures and tacked them on the wall beside the changer. I use a gluestick so they're easy to remove. I try to put up a new one every day or so, but it's something I can point to and distract him while I change him.



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!

If you have Frugal Baby Tips to share, we want to hear them! It might even get published!
