How I Stash My Fluff-Part 1

It took me a few months (well, maybe six months) to figure out the "perfect" way to keep my cloth diapers organized.  I now have a great system that works for our family.

I keep all of the fluff in Sam's dresser.  When he was younger, and couldn't roll like a baby alligator, this is where his changing pad rested.  When we picked out his furniture I was set on getting a changing table but a salesperson talked me into getting a dresser and placing a changing pad on top instead-I sure am glad I met that man!  This dresser has so much space for his fluff and is useful still once changing baby on a changing table isn't feasible anymore, which was around six months of age for us.

In the long, top drawer I keep (in photo order) FuzziBunz Hemp Inserts, extra micro inserts, micro doublers, Hemp Babies doublers, and Birdseye Cotton Flat Diapers (in natural).
In the next two drawers I keep all of my pre stuffed pocket diapers (an assortment of FuzziBunz Perfect SizeBum Genius 4.0Kawaii, and Rumparooz).

The bottom drawer houses my covers which include Flip and Bummis Super Lite.  (I use my flat diapers tri folded in these).

On top of the dresser I have a Prince Lionheart wipe warmer and I keep their "Warmies" in it.  I keep my FuzziBunz wipes underneath that I spray with a bottle of water-these are amazingly soft and are great at drying his little bum after wiping it.

Next to the wipe warmer I keep three jars filled with Q-tips, cotton balls, and baking soda (to sprinkle in the diaper pail).

I also keep a basket on top filled with my old infant prefolds that are great for cleaning up messes, a spray bottle of water, and a baby jar filled with coconut oil.  I use the coconut oil on Sam's bum for his eczema, diaper rash, and as a barrier cream.  It works great and smells amazing!  Oh, and you can't forget the Jayhawk.  Rock Chalk!

In the side cabinet doors I keep random accessories and yes, I have a "sposie" stash for very rare occasions.

And let's be honest, this is usually what his room looks like with the fluff piled on the floor until I have a chance to stuff the pockets and get everything put away.

Happy Cloth Diapering!

I keep most of my diapers (pockets and prefolds) in a wicker basket next to the dresser. One dresser drawer contains my doublers, diaper covers, and cloth wipes. I would, however, love to have a stash that took up a whole dresser!

Where did you find the acrylic dealy to set the warmer on? We could really use something like that.

The stand that the warmer is on is made by Prince Lionheart as well and I got it a Babies R Us. I was worried about the warmer warping the wood. It works great!

Awesome! I want a wipe warmer I decided. Love your setup and I'm glad that the changing table and dresser worked out for you, that's exactly what I want.

We keep all our fluff in a dresser too! (except ours is in the living room.. some day we'll move it out!)
Great system, and glad to see a fellow Jayhawker! ;)

Baking soda! I haven't heard that one before. Do you sprinkle it directly on each diaper? Do you find it is more effective than Bumgenius Odor Remover?

I'm starting to cloth diaper soon and this really helped to give me some ideas on organization. Oh, and we're a KU family too! Rock Chalk Jayhawk!! :)
