    pee pee tepee

    I am looking for a pattern for a pee pee tepee. All I know is that it is a triangle thing that you put on a little boy when changing his diaper diaper to prevent a shower. LOL Got a new greatgrandbaby....boy this time. Thanks in advance.

    LOL! Boy, does that bring back memories! Didn't happen too often but my DS was my second baby and I had never been told of the dangers!

    Why not just embroider a small washcloth or towel instead. It won't come off if he wriggles around like the teepee will. It could be washed too. I have two boys and I just learned t change diapers quickly. You coul even attach a cute note with it explaining its use.

    I had 2 boys and used to throw a washcloth on top. Funny memory though with my first. My dad stopped by our house on his coffee break as I was about to give my son a bath on top of kitchen table and I was not quick enough with the washcloth. The boy had good aim. My dad was sitting at the table and you guessed it, right into my dad's coffee cup. We had quite a laugh. Dad got a different cup of coffee needless to say.

    Way back when doctors made house calls!!! Doc Arthur came by the house to check my 1st son and you guessed it. Glenn got him. All Doc could say at this point was..."Well, that part works." Was quite funny.

    In all honesty, I cut up one of the many simple blankets we got and zig zag stitched around the edges. A simple flannel blanket produced 8-10 pieces of material that we could use to cover parts or as simple burp cloths!
    Go forth and sew!

I did get one girl.. and yup you guessed it.. she has 2 girls.. lol... anyways.. this is such a cute idea.. when I had my boys I just did a hurry up and change. I used cloth diapers with my kids.. I was really poor and couldn't afford the luxury of disaposal.. but it was so nice to hear people ask how my diapers were always so nice and white hanging on the lines drying.. lol... ohhh the memories..

    I had this happen one time. I was 4 yrs old and my parents had just come home with my baby brother. I was standing next to the changing area and got a nice shower. I was so mad! I had on a new dress. I do have a son but by then I had changed many baby boys, I was a pediatric RN. Just be sure you have a spare wash cloth, diaper or small towel to put over him when you take the dirty ditty off. Be sure to have the clean diaper right there ready to use.

    I made those for my first grandson, cute doggie and fire hydrant fabric. Daughter never used them, a gag gift, I guess. I just learned with my baby boy that it was going to happen when the cold air hit him, and I trained him to spray on command when the diaper came off. Helped a lot during hospitalizations when he had to have a UA done, and I didn't want the bag glued on his tender skin.

    The link given earlier is to the way our sewing group makes these pee pee tepees. They are easy to make. We have a sale at our hospital twice a year and these are big sellers. Most people laugh when we explain what they are used for, because their use is not immediately recognized. Have fun making them.

    Made some for my grandson when he was a newborn. The pattern I found called them "Wee Wee Wigwams." http://www.makeit-loveit.com/2009/08...ee-wigwam.html
    When my sons were little I used cloth diapers, and had an extra handy for this purpose, but these are so charming. I'm glad you reminded me because my niece is expecting her baby boy any day now.

    I just placed a dry wash cloth over my grandsons little front while I quickly changed his diaper. Worked quite well and you don't have to do it for very long because I guess they stop sending a shower up after they get a bit older.

    Two friends and I, student nurses, first day in our rotation in the newborn nursery--oohing and ahhhing over a precious baby boy. He of course needed a diaper change. Think of the mouth formation saying ahhhh. Yup, our little guy's aim was right on into my friend's mouth! A memory from >44yrs ago.

    When my cousin had a boy, that was the first boy born in the family since my father. We were all huddled around the bassinet when it was time to change him...all except by grandmother she backed up at least one giant step. at the moment of unveiling about five of us were immediately christened!!!!Brian is grown now, but we all still laugh about his presentation!

    I never saw one of those before. LOL. I always kept my son covered while changing him and never had an accident.

    This was a great find with great grandsons #6 and #7 on the way soon. What a unique gift. Was looking for a circle pattern when I remembered the wrong size coffee filters I purchased by mistake. They were the 2-4 instead of 8-12 cup and a 7 inch circle. They make perfect disposable tepees. I bought some cute little stickers to decorate a few of them. Still playing by stitching some and gluing some. Of course will make some cloth ones too but these are really fun... Bet you could use those pointy little cups they have at water fountains too. Years ago when I worked in the nursery of a hospital the doctors that did the circumcisions always laughed and said they were going to get windshield wipers for their glasses. Thanks for the idea.

    Ha, ha, ha. Mine got the Doctor's white coat at the armpit area. I am sure he was used to it. I hadn't gone prepared since it was the Doctor's office!
