Fresh Start for Spring – Cloth Diaper Organization

Lately, I’ve seen a lot of moms asking, “What’s the best way to organize my cloth diapers?” Obviously, the answer is different for everyone, but here’s what works for us…and you get to see pictures of my (rarely) organized stash!

My setup consists of two dressers. Back when {Hunter} was teeny tiny, the top of the large dresser was our changing station. Now, we just use the floor.

The small dresser is where the diapers are stored. The intention was that I would keep my stash minimalized enough that if I had more diapers than fit in these three drawers, I had too many. But let’s be honest…that’s not happening here. The overflow usually ends up in a laundry basket. 😛

The top drawer holds diaper covers, Flip inserts, wet bags, and pocket diapers. I keep these in the top drawer because they have the most pieces that can be scattered all over the room, and little man can’t quite reach them yet. So, they are safe…for now.

The middle drawer is my Swaddlebees AIOs and some hybrid fitteds, and the bottom drawer is more hybrids and overnight diapers. (Which provides easy access should we need to do a change in middle of the night.)

  • Tip #1: Organize your stash by type, so you’re not digging around trying to find something to put inside that cover while your baby is wandering around bottomless (unless you feel like cleaning up a mess).
  • Tip #2: Make sure your diapers are ready to “grab and go”. Put baby down. Dirty diaper off, clean diaper on, done. Diaper changes are hard enough with an older baby/toddler. Don’t complicate things by having to hold him down while you try to snap in an insert, stuff a pocket, etc.

So…now, that you’re all organized, do you have empty spaces in your dresser/cart/laundry basket that need to be filled? Join the fun in the Kelly’s Closet Easter Egg Hunt for your chance to win more diapers!
