Help teach these young mothers how to care for their babies. For mothers who cannot afford to buy disposable diapers, buy or make your own cloth diapers. Go to a fabric store and buy enough white cotton fabric to make several dozen diapers. Buy a pail and use it to place your diapers in and soak them before washing. I never had a baby with diaper rash, either. The dirty diaper came off, and I immediately put a fresh diaper on my baby. I washed my diapers every day.
