If you had to bug out with the tiny tots in your family, what would you do when the disposable diapers ran out? Full disclosure: I’ve had lots of children, and I’m a big fan of disposable diapers. They’re convenient. But there may come a day when they’re not available, or when you simply can’t afford them.
The technology that goes into the design and manufacture of disposable diapers is amazing. I did a quick Internet search and found a gazillion articles and even some videos that show the manufacturing process. And the last time I walked down the diaper aisle there were about forty varieties, colors, and sizes; evidently, a lot of people buy these things. I’ve certainly bought my share during the last five kids. But being used to a convenience is not to say it’s a necessity, and if our finances took a big hit in the EOTWAWKI, disposable diapers would be one of the first things to go, so I’ve given some thought to the alternatives.
