I just don't have enough drawer space....DD's main dresser is all baby clothes and the changing table dresser has diaper items in the top two drawers and blankets in the bottom drawer. So it's just easier to have space for and get to the diapers when they are folded in half in baskets (I don't snap them closed or anything though). I got my baskets at Hobby Lobby.....each holds 10 diapers nicely. Diapers she's outgrown and that are too big are stored in a tote in her closet.

I store them folded because when a sitter, big sister, or Daddy gets them out they can see exactly how they go together.

I can't post pics just yet but we have our three drawer changer sandwiched between the girls' two dressers. I use the one on the left for diapering stuff and the one on the right for decor. All three drawers in the changer are packed full of fluff along with the four drawer dresser on the left. I have a pretty massive stash. I will post some pics when DS will let me.

Re: Can I see your changing table set up??

I love this thread!!! I'm hoping to get our nursery set up soon (finally!) and am nervous about getting the changing "center" set up in a way that's organized and functional. I'm definitely stealing some of these ideas!! heh

You've got great taste!! I used the same fabric that your wetbag is made from to make part of the curtains and crib dust ruffle in my sons room. We are also using the same blue/green baskets to store diapers under our change table.

Re: Can I see your changing table set up??

My goodness, you all have such beautiful setups! We just have ours in our front living room, not his bedroom, and its just basic utilitarian.

We have Osocozy pfs on the left, then some pocket dipes and some workhorses and thirsties covers. The bottom shelf has extra clothes, hemp and bamboo liners, extra MF liners, and some flushible liners.
