When I was pregnant with my son, I knew I wanted to create the portable changing station again. However, I learned a few things the first time around and decided to use this as more than just a place to hold diapers and wipes. I wanted one place in our living room that would have the things I needed most often. I bought a bigger basket this time and thought through what I needed.
What to include in your portable changing station will be different for everyone, depending on what you use most for your baby. Diapers and wipes are the obvious contents. I use a thin flannel baby blanket as a changing pad. Thankfully, neither of my children have had issues with diaper rash, but I have a tube in there for those few instances when they do need it. We use this basket as home base for pacifiers; whenever we find one laying around, it goes here so that whenever we need one, we know right where they are. We also keep a burp rag, swaddler and thin swaddling blankets in this basket.
This has to be one of the most original items that I have ever received to review for our blog! This product is called the OskerBee Baby Changing Station and it literally is a diaper bag with a portable changing station. The changing station set includes the bag and an actual fold-out cot for baby to be changed upon.
So, what does our family do instead? We store cloth diapers in simple plastic storage drawers in a central location. We then create convenient mini diaper changing stations throughout the house. This is generally a simple basket or cute storage bin with a few diaper changing essentials. These portable diaper changing stations fit neatly in a corner or on a shelf and are ready when when – and where – we need them.
