Diaper Baby Instructions


~ This diaper baby idea was submitted to our website by Cindy from Canada. ~

To make this cute baby, you will need:

  • a small package of small diapers “Pampers Swaddler”
    (40-50 diapers)
  • a pacifier
  • elastics
  • and an outfit

Roll a secure with an elastic 4 diapers (2 arms, 2 legs). If filling a baby
sleeper, you may want to use 8 diapers (2 each for arms and legs).

To Make the Body:

Open 1 diaper (loosen the elastic from the folded part). Roll this diaper
loosely, or around a toilet paper roll.

Next, loosen another diaper and start rolling this diaper around the first
one. Start this diaper with its fold over the seam part of the first rolled
diaper. Loosen all the diapers and keep rolling in a ball (like making a
snowman).

I always say to myself that I am going to take note of how many
diapers I use…but never do. Just make 2 balls of diapers …1 larger (body)
than the other (head smaller ball). Use elastics to hold each ball together. I
guess you could also wrap an elastic around sections.

If it’s too hard to manage…. you have 10 diapers rolled and its getting hard
to manage, use an elastic, then keep rolling until you have the desired size
ball. Put the small ball on top of the large one. I use a large, narrow elastic
around both of them.

Between the 2 elastics on the sides of the balls…place a rolled arm, on
each side. (the elastic around the individual ball, and the elastic around both
balls) Do the same on the bottom for the legs.

Dress your diaper baby. If you have short sleeves, use 1 diaper each for the
arms, for long sleeves use 2 diapers each. Just take 1 of the 2 rolled diapers
and place it down the sleeve Then take the sleeve and put it over the other arm
or leg that is attached. Put a pacifier in between the diapers on the front of
the face of small diaper ball where the mouth would be.

Put a hat on the head. Decorate anyway you want. Add
wiggly eyes if you would like. Enjoy!

pink girl diaper baby

I made this diaper baby for a friend who had been trying for years to have a baby. I thought this gift would be a perfect way to celebrate when she finally got her little one! I found an adorable pink outfit and matched it with a cute pink hat and pacifier. I placed it in a gift basket and surrounded it with sock roses. It was beautiful!

diaper baby in cute purple and white summer dress

I made this baby for my sister in law. I started out with a cute summer outfit. Then I added a lacy white bonnet and a matching purple pacifier. I finished it off by attaching a baby rattle to the arm with white curling ribbon. It was easy and fun to make!

blue diaper baby in basket

This is a diaper baby that I made for my cousin’s shower. To make baby, I bought a package of 72 Pampers
diapers size 2. For the baby I used 50 diapers. I began by loosening the diapers and rolling them to form the body. Continue doing this until you’ve
reached the desired size. I used elastics to hold the diapers together. The
same was done to make the head of the baby only smaller. One large elastic was
used to hold the head and body together. I rolled diapers together to form the
arms and legs and tucked them into the elastic that was used to hold the head
and body together. Blue tissue paper was used to wrap the head, arms and legs.

The baby is dressed with an onesie undershirt, shirt, pants, hat and a bib. All
the clothing used was 3 to 6 months. A rattle was attached to the one arm with
curling ribbon. I cut a slit in the tissue paper where the mouth would be and
inserted the pacifier. I bought a wicker basket and lined it with a receiving
blanket. The remainder of the diapers were rolled and tied with curling ribbon.
These are beneath the baby’s head.

I had a couple more articles of clothing
which are also inside the basket and tied with ribbon. Tissue paper was used as
a filler around the outside of the basket. I used another receiving blanket to
put over the baby. To finish it off I attached curling ribbon to the handles on
the basket.

diaper baby in harley outfit

My daughter bought her husband a Harley Davidson Motorcycle for his wedding
present, so I had to include something to do with Harley’s for her shower. I
made several pretty things for her, a diaper cake, personalized diaper cupcake,
baby carriage, candy wrappers and Hershey kiss roses, but something to do with
Harley’s had to be added. When I saw a picture of a diaper baby on your web
page I thought that would be perfect.
Ingredients: 1 Harley outfit, Harley head wrap, 1 gown (with fold overs for
hands), 1 pair pants, Harley socks, 1 pacifier ,glue on eyes, a box size 2
diapers & extra-large rubber bands.

For the Head – I rolled 3, size 2 diapers, and then continued by opening a
diaper and wrapping the first 3. With the next diaper opened, wrap the other
way, to form a ball. Continue wrapping, securing with rubber bands as needed,
until you get the size you want. You will put the last diaper on later, to
cover the rubber band.

For the Body – Make a small ball, like the head, but then continue wrapping
around in one direction to desired size. Use rubber bands as needed to secure.
Then push together, so it will be taller, and not look like a ball.

Arms & Legs: Roll 1 diaper, but insert part of rubber band length ways before
closing all the way. Then close and use another rubber band to secure opposite
end. Add another rolled diaper to end and secure with rubber band to make it
longer. With the part of the rubber band that’s showing, attach arms and legs
by wrapping around the body at an angle.

Attaching Head and Body: Place 2 – 3 flat diapers on top of body, to serve a
neck. Attach head and body with rubber band. Use another diaper to wrap head,
so that it covers rubber bands in front and put under the rubber bands in back
to hold.

Dress you baby & put on hat. Glue on eyes and make a very small slit for the
pacifier. This will be the only diaper she will not be able to use.
I placed it on a chest in the corner of the room. When people walked by, they
had to take a second look. It turned out really cute.

diaper baby in blue monkey pajamas and baby photo face

This was for my daughters baby shower. It was made with diapers, sleeper, baby cap, toy, and a picture of my granddaughter that I fit to the size of the baby.

I rolled the diapers and put them in the sleeper and blew the face up on the computer to fit the size of the baby.

I just think putting the face of a baby makes it look so much cuter and this was my daughters other baby that I used the picture of.

diaper baby sleeping on blanket

I saw a diaper baby one day and wanted to make it.It was hard at first, but I did it. Have been making them ever since. I used about 30 diapers for baby.It was 30 diapers, bodysuit, hat, mittens, socks, blanket, pacifier and holder. To make it, I just filled the bodysuit up. I used 2 diapers for each of the arms and legs, and the rest goes for the body. I did put more for the butt than the back.
