Since we have been talking about commercial

monkeys. This is a separate diet from the marmoset diet which has a high vitamin D
content which would be harmful for large monkeys. The nice things is, Jeffers will

Do it Yourself Tiny Diaper
By: Alicia Hammond
Here is the tiny diaper instructions:
Things you will need:
Material: I found blue Jean the most
hook and eyes
needle and thread
NOTE: This pattern is general and will have
to made bigger or smaller to fit your monkey. If possible, measure with a string
from the back of waist belt, between leg and tail to the front of the waist belt at the
After getting the size diaper you need to
sew the straight edge of the cloth cut out to the front center of the waist belt being
careful not to sew the adjustable band together. Sew an eye on each side of the back
of the waist belt measuring the distance needed for the width of the tail of your monkey.
Sew one hook on each strap of the cloth cut out. Fold full sheet of paper
towel the width of the diaper holder and cut or tare to the length of the diaper.
Put waist belt with diaper sewn to it around the stomach area, insert paper towel and pull
straps up and hook to eyes on the back of the belt. Your monkey will have two waist
bands, but this should not be a bother to your monkey. The nice thing is it can be
thrown in the washing machine to clean.
