All out of diapers, the diapers are all in the wash - or you left the diaper bag at home or in the car??
And your baby needs to be changed, RIGHT NOW!?
Why not use your cotton T-shirt!
Any size T-shirt will do, but the bigger the T-shirt, the bigger the baby it will fit - and the better the absorbency.

Place your T-shirt on a flat surface.
I used a child's size large organic t-shirt for my pictures.
Fold over one side to the middle.
Repeat with the other side, to form a tapered end (cross over each side in the middle) at the T-shirt hem.
If the sleeve end is not wide enough to go around your baby's waist, simply widen your fold more.
Fold up the t-shirt hem to about half-way, to fit your baby.
Place baby's bottom on the center of the T-shirt.
Bring folded end up between baby's legs.
Wrap the sides around baby's tummy.
Use cloth diaper pins or a Snappi® to fasten diaper securely.
Or simply place inside a Velcro® or snap diaper wrap.
