I simply do not come from that mindset. If anything I am vigilant in understanding that others may need it while I just may want it.
Well, our pantry has always been fairly well stocked. The only thing I "panicked" about (but 'panicked' is a HUGE exaggeration) was the total lack of eggs last week. This week, we did buy three dozen, however.

And our supermarket still has no hams for Easter. That is my biggest "very minor" concern re: groceries.

I think a mother would use ingenuity, but we all know what it’s like to be at the end of our rope sometimes. I can’t blame her for cracking.

You can use condensed milk for formula. If the baby can eat “solids” boil some cauliflower broccoli carrots peas etc whatever veggies mash and strain them. You can get some fruits like apples peaches etc mash the hell out of the, strain and feed to babies too. Make enough to last a while and refrigerate it.

When I was a baby we didn’t have disposable diapers. It was cloth diapers. We didn’t have a washing machine. It was a big cauldron hot water and scrub.

Seriously......people have lived without modern amenities for 1900 years. We get electricity and the industrial revolution we become dumb as cows.

Condensed milk has no nutrition and is not easily digestible.

Only 1900 years? What about all the years in BC?

Not condensed milk, evaporated milk, sugar and water. I was given it as a baby.

I had my son almost trained at 18 months until we movedA new daycare insisted 18 months was too young and reversed him back to diapers

Most of the world doesn't use disposable diapers and many, including China, don't use diapers at all. It's not the end of the world.
Try paper towels.

A lot of people have only EVER used cloth diapers. Why can't she do the same? I have a supply of cloth diapers that I kept when the disposables ran out. I thought everyone kept cloth diapers around for emergencies.

The reason many people are "hoarding" is because they are told to quarantine themselves for a while. So that means they have to stock up on things, so they won't be risking their health making multiple trips to the grocery store. I think we need to stop judging people who are stocking up on things they need.

Almost every day there is a news story with someone upset because the store ran out of something.
