Here are some of our favorite changing table organizers, perfect for storing diapers, wipes and creams that might otherwise clutter your space.
6. ASSIGN DRAWER ORGANIZERS TO DIAPERING ESSENTIALS
Instead of putting things wherever there’s space, assign drawer organizers to keep the items contained and displayed so you know exactly where the diapering essentials are.
7. LABEL DRAWER organizers
Turns out, that just assigning drawer organizers is not enough. If anyone else is on diaper duty, they might not figure out your system. Label the drawer organizers so everyone's on the same page.
8. ADD BASKETS TO THE CHANGING TABLE
There's nothing we love more than baskets, when it comes to nursery storage and organization. A few well placed baskets can make all the difference. Set the baskets on the changing table to hold diapers, clothes, blankets and more.
9. STORE DIAPERING ESSENTIALS WITHIN EASY REACH
The secret to a well organized changing table is to keep the basic diapering essentials where you can reach them ASAP-without having to rummage through drawers. Use organizers or a caddy to keep essentials conveniently on-hand.
10. KEEP BABY'S CLOTHES CLOSE BY
Use the shelves or drawers to store and organize baby's clothes, because you'll be changing baby's outfits-more often that you thought. Even if you've got a nursery closet with ample storage, keep a few everyday outfits stored here.
11. PLACE a clothes HAMPER NEAR THE CHANGING TABLE
Add a pretty clothes hamper to the area near your changing table —to corral baby's laundry.
12. USE A DIAPER PAIL
Say goodbye to the smell of dirty diapers by keeping a diaper pail near the changing table.
