HELP! Where do U put all your dipes??

I'm running out of diaper room!

I use the changing table for all my diapers and some other things as well (like shoes..) Well i'm running out of room! I like everything to be organized and within sight LOL! If i have dipes tucked inside a plastic container and out of view most likely i won't use them

How do you mamas organize your dipes? I have a stack of FBs, HHs, FFs, BSWWs, Wool and wipes all on the top shelf of the table. On the shelf below i have 1 tall stack of prem ipfs and a smaller stack of infant ipfs. Next to that i have a few fitteds stacked (with more on the way ) and a container with all my pocket inserts in them. Then i also have a container with doublers, fleece liners, disposable liners, snappis, lotions, rash stuff....

The bottom shelf is full of a few toys, shoes, a pack of sposies...who knows what else may be under there but i dont' want to put any cloth dipes under there cause occasionally our cats like to lounge on that shelf

Soooo anyways where do ya'll put everything??? I should add that i dont' have much space at all for annikas things. She is currently sharing a room with us so her crib is next to our bed and her changing table and dresser is also in there. Her dresser is overflowing with clothes so there is no room there either Eventually around her 2nd bday (oct) we plan to move her into her sisters room but that room is SMALL so we are gonna trade rooms between our son and the girls. His room is much bigger so although he is NOT gonna like it, the girls are gonna get his room since they are sharing and he will get the smaller. Once she is in that room i may have more space but what to do till then?

Do i just have too many dipes ? or is there a way to keep it all organized?

TIA for any ideas! Although i'm betting i'm just outta luck and will just have to learn to live with the jumbled mess of dipes or get rid of some

My mom made me a diaper stacker like she used to use for my CDs (which she also made)
it hangs outside dd's closet on a door hook so all the fancy fluff can be seen

I could make them too.
email me if you would like a pic even just to see what it looks like

We just got a dresser/armoire (spent last weekend refinishing it!) and the dipes go in the top "cabinet" part. Some day I'll get pics.. but it works really well.. some are in a basket inside, and the rest are stacked. There's a "lingerie" drawer in that part too, and I've got all of our wool covers in there.

Re: HELP! Where do U put all your dipes??

I bought these wire cube stackers from target for $20 I use it for other stuff on the bottom and put all the dipes organized in the top 2 layers. The best part of it is that you can arrange the cubes any way you want. They come in the square wires and the joints and you just put it together!

kthoelen I can't get that link to work?

I do all my changing on the changing table of my pack and play. We don't use it for her to play or sleep in, so I stack all of her diapers and wipes and such in there. They lay nicely ontop of each other and I can see and get what I need for a change easily.

I had to fix it a bunch of times but it should work now.

I have a narrow ELFA (kind of like california closet style) stand that you can get different depth baskets for. I have just a tray on top with wipes and wipes warmer. Then the 3x depth basket holds our FBs and GADs all stuffed, I have a 2x drawer for extra inserts and random stuff in the very bottom. It works great!

to go along the lines of the hanging diaper stacker you could get a hanging shoe organizer as well!! i currently have all ours in the changing table/dresser that we have. i hate that i can't just see all the fluff all the time lol. GL mama!! how many dipes do you have exactly? then may be we could answer if you have too many lol.

I use my changing table too. I have a total of 5 baskets, four on the top shelf and one on bottom.

On the top shelf (from l to r) I have: a basket (lengthwise) of fitteds for Torrin (12), a basket (also lengthwise) of fitteds for Eliana (13), a basked in front (sideways) with half Eliana's covers and half Torrin's covers, and a basket in back with infant pfs (for pockets and stuff). On the bottom shelf I have a big square basket with Eliana's pockets, then on the shelf in one big stack is all my premium size pfs (3 dozen).
