Re: What do you do with disposable diapers from baby showers??

I kept one pack in size 1 and one pack in size 2 and I returned the rest to Walmart and used the $$ to pay for hubby's insulin He's diabetic and the extra money helped with how expensive his insulin is for us.

I do this too, and have been glad a few times when our washer or dryer broke that I had a back up and didn't have to drag 3 kids to the laundromat to wash diapers.

More often than not I haven't had to use them, but it's always nice to have a free back up when I needed it.

Save them to give as baby shower gifts to friends who won't use cloth. Or return them. I ended up using gifted sposies just because I used them when I traveled (and I travel a lot). Or when I was overwhelmed at work and needed a laundry break.

You can also sell them on Craigslist if you can't return them.

I'd return them and use the money to buy something else you need.

I keep one package in each size I got, and then once outgrown (we never used even close to all of them), gave them away.

My ds is a super heavy wetter at night. He had defeated my cloth diapers so we just use sposies at night. When we have a sitter we give them the option of either cloth or sposie.

Re: What do you do with disposable diapers from baby showers??

I kept the smallest pack of each size, and returned the rest. I asked where they had come from, and did tell the people who gave them to me I was going to use CD's. Everyone was totally cool with me returning them - some even fished the receipt out of their purses! Then in the thank you cards I included a picture of the ridiculously cute Alva Owl diapers with a note of "Thanks for the diapers!"

Side note: I'm pretty sure I converted a friend to CDing from doing this!!!

Re: What do you do with disposable diapers from baby showers??

My DD out pees all sposies, so I have to use night time cloth! (My night time cloth is no joke about 12 layers of bamboo and 5 layers of Zorb)

I donated most of my sposies because I had openned them for travel etc. But if they weren't openned I would have returned them, because any little bit helps right now as we are strapped for cash!
