I am a mom to 5 children, aged 5-19 and have used cloth diapers with all of them.

I also breastfed them all, and as a result, needed good nursing pads.

With my last 2 babies, I found I had several cloth diapers that had seen much better days but I didn't want to use them for rags yet, plus I needed breast-pads.

I cut out several nursing pads using a large glass to trace them in the middle of the prefold part of the diaper.

They ended up being about 5" circles. I didn't need to put several layers together since they were thick enough.

I simply zig-zagged around the edges, and voila! Great free nursing pads!

I still have them, and my little girls can use them for dolly pillows.

Thanks to Bev Qualheim for this Frugal Baby Tip!
