If you ever find yourself say, I dunno, babysitting your 6 month old nephew for the afternoon and you VERY unexpectedly get your period only to realize that you left your purse at home and your sister doesn't seem to have any "supplies" on hand (how long does it take to get your period back after childbirth anyways?!)... a size 2 child's diaper may just do the trick. Thankfully they were sitting right there on the bathroom counter 'cause I don't think balled up toilet paper would have held for the entire afternoon (I had no carseat and baby was sleeping so I was really stuck). I opened up the diaper and laid it in my underwear like a pad. Thank goodness I was wearing full cut, fairly tight undies as the diaper was way too small to actually fasten. But it actually stayed in place and worked. And dare I say, it didn't really feel at all much different than a regular pad. Go figure. I found the whole experience very funny, but there is no way I would ever tell anyone in real life (including my sister). So thanks for the diaper, sis! And please stock your bathroom like a regular human being!
