Recycled Diapers

In my son’s one year of existence, I have never recycled one of his soiled diapers. That is until tonight! Let me first make it very clear that I am not in a financial bind or anything like that. Just because I lost my job, doesn’t mean I cannot afford necessities for my kid. 

The only reason this diaper was recycled is because it was his last Huggies Overnite diaper (and thankfully he deposited a hard nugget that left no skid marks). I just gave him a bath and literally, he only had it on for 5 minutes then I heard that all too familiar grunting sound. I started to panic because I did not want to drive to the store to buy more overnight diapers. I knew that if I used his Pampers Cruisers, then he would be a pee pee mess in the morning.

I guess I won’t win the “mom of the year award” because of my choice. Have you ever recycled a diaper? Please tell me I’m not alone.

Thanks for stopping by The Unemployed Mom!

One Thought to “Recycled Diapers”

    You’re not alone. My husband is always recycling diapers. Usually they are pee pee diapers that he thinks are dry. I keep telling him that they have pee in them, but I guess they do such a good job of absorbing the pee that he thinks they are clean.
