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 Size, Bum Genius 4.0, Kawaii, and Rumparooz).
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.
Happy Cloth Diapering!
