Default Will it work?

Ok i have a question. My ds drinks formula and every time he gets done with a can i dont want to throw it away (even though i do) because i know there is something i can use them for. Then it hit me yesterday just as i was about to throw one out. Flip the can on its side and stick two of them together and wrap with fabric and i could use it to display headbands! . I goning to have to wait untill he is done with the new can to try it out but it wont be long. He is a pig and drinks 7 to 8 bottles a day plus 6 jars a baby food. We use the big cans not the little cans so i think there wide enough.

Do you think it will work? I Also included a pic of my ds so you could see how chunky he is

I don't see why that would not work. I'd use duct tape or something strong like that to put the cans together. You may also need something to weigh it down.

Your son is sooo cute. Are those cloth diapers? You are a saint if they are. I'm just polluting the environment with my child's diapers!

Thank you. There a cross between cloth and disposable there called gdiapers. I LOVE them . We started using them because my son has sensitive skin and there chemical free. The outside part is cloth and the inside part is (The part they get dirty ) is a dispoable liner that biodegrates (sp?) in two months insted of 500 years like a regular disposable diaper. They run us about $10 less a month than regular disposable diapers
The website is gDiapers - Earth friendly diapers. The new diaper hybrid. you can also get them a Diapers.com - Everything for Baby - Free Shipping, Great Service We got a starter pack just to see if we liked them and we Love them. Pluse they send you fee stuff for every 10 upc codes you send back.

When I was teaching I used them in my classroom to store crayons, blocks, etc.

Love the gdiapers. Good for you!!
