Resources for mothers in emergency situations

I'm going to gradually add some links in here for resources that might be helpful to mothers in emergency situations. Feel free to add your own!

Cup feeding
In an emergency situation water and electricity supplies may be limited. This can make it difficult or impossible to adequately clean baby bottles. Under these circumstances, cup feeding may be a good alternative to bottle feeding because cups are much easier to clean.
