  1. 3 a.m. and out of diapers..... I would use a hand towel or such and pin it as a diaper with a maxi pad in the middle of it to absorb any wetness.

    However, I have had this happen before but it wasn't a massive poop diaper and we just made a quick run since we live so close to a store to get more.

  2. This has happened to my grandmother........just not at 3 a.m. She used a dishtowel as a cloth diaper until I was able to get home with the real thing. It worked.

  3. I would clean the poop, obviously, and send daddy to the store for diapers. I would wrap the baby in a towel and hold them tight until daddy got back home with the diapers. Most likely since the baby just had a poop the worst thing is he/she would pee and the towel would absorb it.

  4. For my husband it would be to rinse her off in the shower and probably wrap her back up in a shirt, probably mine. BUT I would clean her up and I am pretty crafty at sewing so I would sew a new diaper, I‘m a night owl anyways!

  5. We're cloth diapering, so none washed... First clean my baby off, take an old bath towel, cut it up for a few diapers, put a wash cloth in it, and pin it. Then put a onesie or shorts on to make sure it stays together. Next morning I'd start laundry...
