Preemie Cloth Diapers

Today I was trying to decide what to do with a stack of old washcloths and realized that if cut in half and then folded in half lengthwise, they would make good centers for preemie diapers. After receiving those adorable preemie diaper covers, I figured out that my smallest prefolds were too long for them. Well, we can't have that! (I only used four washcloths for this. The rest turned into dust and cleaning rags.)

I got out a bag of flannel odds and ends and made a total of eight hourglass-shaped diapers using the washcloths in the center. It didn't take too long and now I have diapers that fit the covers. :) And I didn't spend a cent!

I made eight - this picture just shows six.

They're LITTLE! Nine inches long by eight inches at the back.

How it looks inside the cover.

I just love those monkeys...

Again, little!!!

  1. Your diapers are so cute! I wish I would have known about them last year! My daughter Joy was born at 23 weeks last year. Due to modern medicine and prayers she is doing great today. I hemorrhaged at 17 weeks for the first of 4 times because of 100% placenta previa, which turned into placenta accreta (which I believe was caused by 3 prior c-sections). After she came home from 121 days in the NICU, I wrote a memoir called "From Hope To Joy" about my life-threatening
 pregnancy and my daughter's 4 months in the NICU (with my 3 young sons at 
home), which is now available on both the Amazon and Barns&Noble websites . It was quite a roller 
coaster that I am certain some of you have been on or are currently riding on. My mission is to provide hope to women struggling with
 high-risk pregnancies, encourage expectant mothers to educate themselves before 
electing cesarean deliveries, provide families of premature babies a realistic 
look at what lies ahead in their NICU journey, and show that miracles can 
happen, and hope can turn into joy.
