DIY Baby Doll Diaper
My little girl has dolls, lots of dolls. I have a few micro-preemie cloth diapers that I use, but even on dolls, they get dirty. When its time for a change, I use an unused period pad, some duct tape and voila! A new, fresh DIY Baby Doll Diaper!
The first step is to fold the period pad to be the right size for the diaper. Each baby doll is different, so you will need to fold it and check that the sizing is correct. You will also want to make sure there is no adhesive exposed.
Secondly, fold tape over the pad and around the sides. It is easiest to do the first fold over off the baby, and then place it on the baby to be sure you get the correct sizing.
My little girl walked in while I was making this. She has just turned two and immediately shouted out ‘Baby goes peepee’ when she saw it. Perhaps I should have used a Poise pad instead!
We recently shared a post with you called FIVE Changes to Your Body After Baby (That No One Ever Told You About). A number of people had some questions about #LBL. Here are some answers!
WHAT IS LBL?
-One in three women experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) – little leaks that can be triggered by everyday occurrences like coughing, sneezing, laughing and exercise.
-Weak pelvic floor muscles, pregnancy, childbirth and weight gain are just a few LBL contributors.
WHAT CAUSES LBL?
Just as no two women are alike, there’s no single reason that LBL happens. Some of the most common things that lead to uninvited leaks include:
•Physical changes from childbirth, pregnancy, hysterectomy or menopause
•Complications from surgery, stroke, or chronic diseases like diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS) or Parkinson’s disease
•Bladder or urinary tract infections
•Bladder irritants (certain foods and beverages)
For women who experience LBL, the right products are needed. Poise Thin-Shaped Pads are made with Super Absorbant Material (SAM) and Thin-flex design. Be free, stay dry.
We had some ideas to #RecycleYourPeriodPad. LBL is NOT your period, and you shouldn’t use a period pad. Unused period pads can be used for many other things, such as a doll diaper!
