    Default How do you store nappies?

    For 4 plus years I have stored our nappies in a clothes hamper/laundry basket type thing. I'm over it, its messy and unorganised.

    How do you store your nappies??

    We use one of those wire drawer systems, it's in the 19 month olds wardrobe. I like it because it keeps them tidy and we can see them easily.

    I have a chest of drawers next to the change table. I have cloth and disposable wipes, nappy sacks, extra liners, nappy cream etc in the top drawer, all my boring greenkids workhorses in the next drawer and then the next three drawers have my pretties in them. I might store them colour coded. Maybe . . .

    Edit my response! Just ignore me! I wasn't looking at where I was. I have no business in cloth nappy land! I admire from afar!

    On a good laundry day (so never lol) mine are in the bottom drawer of her change table.
    Usually, either in a pile on the floor next to it or in a laundry basket all waiting to be sorted.
    I have been doing sloth since DD1 was a little baby (she's 7 and a bit). I have tried all manner of storage and organisation. I have finally figured out that this works best for me.

    I have a small, cheap bookshelf from the reject shop which I have laying sideways on top of the table, against the wall. So instead of it being 4 short shelves up, it's 4 columns.

    I have MCNs in the first one, plain cloth terry squares in the second, coloured cloth squares in the third, and then bathers and their daycare bags in the forth.

    On top, I have powder, sudocrem, hand sanitizer, daktozin, and all those other bits and pieces.

    Works well for us.

    My change table has two shelves. Top shelf is wipes, liners, wipes wash, creams, snappis, boosters wet bags and covers. Second shelf is 5 rows of nappies - terry flats, fitteds, side snaps, front snaps, night nappies. Under that are two baskets - dirty washing and extra nappy bits - and a pile of boo boo cloths.

    Our chAnge table is atop a chest of drawers so the nappies in use (we use sized as well as OSFM) go in the top drawer. There isn't enough room for all nappies though so the ones DD has grown out of are stored in one of those shoe type hanging compartment thingies in the wardrobe.

    oohhhh i am liking the idea of the wire pull out drawers. you can see what is in there and easily just chuck them in after washing....oohhh! only taken me 6 years to find something that sounds useful for us lol! i hate how messy my nappies look. i have some in the cane basket and some in a plastic tub.

    I still use the nappy stacker and any left over ones that don't fit stay in the packing on the floor in between the end of the cot and the change table.
