Angi said: I've always used wool blankets on my daughter's futon, they've been fine with soaking up small leaks from both ends. Don't know how they'd be with a total pee puddle (like for a child's accident) though, but for nappy leaks and dribble/vomit they work great, our futon has no stains.

Sue Ellen said: You could try a thrift store for a nice sized wool blanket ... I'm sure it would be cheaper than $110! Another idea I got from a gal the other day was to use fleece. Sometimes you can get a nice fleece blanket on sale new at Walmart or the like for relatively inexpensive.



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!
