A Simple Gift

We’ve been having a problem lately with Bella peeing through her diapers overnight. We tried going up a size (the common suggestion), but no luck. So we decided to try some other brands.

When Bella was a newborn, she used Pampers all the time. But when she get a little bigger and had to switch to the sizes that contained “Dry Max”, she started getting horrible rashes. She was apparently allergic to something in the diapers. This is not completely uncommon, we just gave the diapers to my in-laws who were watching their grandson at the time.

So we’re trying different diapers again and I decide to give Pampers another try because the label now said it used “Baby Dry” for absorption. Well, it must be nearly the same thing or the exact same thing that was in the diapers with Dry Max because it gave Bella a horrible rash that we’re actually having a hard time getting rid of. (After Desitin Maximum Strength and Boudreaux’s, I think our next attempt will be Aquaphor). After that, we may have to accept that the Huggies we bought are irritating her as well. Grr.

Anyway, so I now have two almost completely full packages of Pampers sitting around. I decided that rather than letting them go to waste, I would look for a Homeless Shelter in the area so that I could donate the diapers there. It’s a small gesture, but I’m sure it will mean something to someone who has fallen on hard times. To find shelters in your area, here is the resource that I used:

The Homeless Shelter Directory provides Homeless Shelters and Homeless Service Organizations. This includes all resources necessary to help the needy.

The directory was created for people who want to find and donate food and/or supplies to their local shelter.

Volunteer Opportunities are also needed at most shelters. I have listed contact information for volunteering at these shelters.
