Alright, basically I'm at the airport right now with my daughter Bailey and I checked her diaper bag last time I changed her (she's still potty training but has frequent accidents when traveling because she usually gets very excited and forgets to use the potty) and noticed she only had four diapers left and that was about an hour ago. She wet the one she has on right now, but not enough for a change. Our flight got delayed so we have to stay at the airport for another six-eight hours. There are no stores in the airport that sell diapers and, the nearest store to the airport is miles away; I'm not carrying a card or nearly enough money to get a taxi and come back because I put my purse in my check in bag which had my phone changer and my phone is dead took some money with me so I could travel as light as possible, but I still have a lot with me (only have thirty dollars, and yes, I know it wasn't the brightest thing to do, we were in a hurry, didn't realize what could happen). We're traveling to Sweden from America so it'll be a a long flight. I'm assuming she'll need a change in the next hour or two or she might start to complain. We're a bit too far away from any bathrooms (it's a fairly large airport and I don't think I could possibly be any farther away from a bathroom where my gate's at) so I can't take her to one constantly. I can only take her every time it's time to change her because I'm carrying two roller bags and a diaper bag. What should I do? I'm afraid she's going to run out of diapers towards the begging of our flight if I keep her in them, but, if I take them off until she gets on the plane she'll probably pee herself and more then likely mess the only pair of clothes she has that's with us and I'll have to carry her (I usually bring a extra pair of clothes for her but, like I said, we were in a hurry)! Should I change her diapers as frequently as I did before, or should I try to get as much out of each diaper and let her use them a bit more before changing them due to the circumstances? I've never been in a trickier position, does anyone have any ideas; I need help and, ideas fast!
