5 Faves - Changing Table Essentials

There are some days where I feel like all I accomplish is changing diapers and making meals.
Diaper. Bottle. Snack. Bottle. Lunch. Prep dinner. Etc. 
Maybe half of the phone calls I answer from Bill while he's at work consist of me saying something like, Oh I'm just in the middle of changing a diaper.  Or I've changed 3 nasty dipes at it's only 11:00.

Changing diapers is definitely a big part of my day, whether I like it or not, and I've grown to love some things about our "changing station" that I thought I'd share for old and new moms' alike! 

Here are some "essentials" that make my day job go as smooth as can be:

I'm a color person and color always makes me happy.
Since my favorite color is orange, it makes diaper changing a little more bearable to have an orange pad, you know? 

When trying to figure out how to set up the nursery when we first moved into our house (almost two yard ago this spring!), mom convinced me to put the table under the window, and it has really saved us!

Distractions from outside are always welcome!

This diaper pail:
It used to hold all of Addie's diapers but since June was born, it now just holds the "dirties" and all the wets go into the regular trash.
*I don't ever have to empty it but Bill says it's pretty smelly, so I'm not sure how well the baking soda part works...

The "Every-Change-Items."
The things we use every diaper change always stay on top of the table or in the side plastic basket, within easy reach.
It's always powder for both girls, this hand sanitizer (which is amazingly baby friendly), and some kind of Aveeno lotion for Addie, who has super dry skin.

Frequently used products.
The middle basket of the changing table houses these necessities that we use ALL THE TIME (just maybe not every change.)
Gas Drops.
Hydrocortisone or Addie's prescription strength exima cream.

Doesn't this just make you want to change diapers? 

If so, come on over and get your hands dirty! 

Happy Midweek and Feast of St. Joseph (a day late).

  1. You got it covered, girlfriend!
    And in such a stylish way, too!
    You just took me back in time, my friend!
    Enjoy those babes!
    And your mom was right...I always put my changing table by the window.
    Until I had my fourth one. And then it was like, " Changing table? What's that? This carpet looks just fine. Throw me a diaper, will ya?" : )


Gracias for saying Hola!
