Diaper Organization

I love those diaper caddy's that are sold at the various "baby" stores - they look cute and can really help you to organize your diapering supplies in one place so you have it when you need it.  But let's be realistic - when you have a young, curious, mobile child like I do, I would have to put this caddy out of my son's reach (a.k.a. hide it away which loses it's function of having all of your diapering supplies at arm's reach) or my 16 month old son will pull everything out of it and hide it in places I will never be able to find!!  Well to make things easy for myself, thus having all of my diapering/changing supplies in one location without allowing my son to open the container and get into it, I use a storage container with a secure lid on it to hold all of my diapering supplies.  I purchased mine from my local Target but you can get one from any place that sells storage bins/containers.  I love that the container is large enough to hold not only diapers (and a lot of them), but also a large tub of diaper rash cream, my favorite shea butter moisturizers for my kids' dry skin, odor containing baggies for those yucky #2 diapers, as well as my wipes container!  I just refill the container as I need to but everything I need is right in this bin and I know that my little one can't open the container up and pull everything out of it.  I hope that you find this information helpful...
