Thanks for the compliments guys, we agonized over the color and I am so glad it turned out just the way we wanted it. The chair is actually from Ikea and the shelving unit was from a garage sale. I LOVE a good deal lol. I am still waiting for my husband to finish refinishing the dresser so I can put away all of the piles of clothes we got at our baby shower. I was thinking i would do a drawer per size (btw the tags lie! so I ended up making piles by clothes that are the same size and just disregarded the tags).
Since I am new I have a question about the changing area, what needs to be handy? Diapers and wipes, check, what else?
Ditto on the lying tags. Hence why I have two different sizes in two different drawers. And when I go through them I also sort by physical size somewhat (you can usually tell when something is significantly bigger or smaller than it's friends in the same size group).
Some might say baby powder and/or diaper rash cream in the changing area. Me? Not so much. I barely ever used any last time and won't even be buying either this time... DS didn't get rashes until 3 mos and I switched to cloth and that solved it. I never used the diaper rash cream again beyond that couple of weeks. So I figure this time I'll get it if I need it. But that's just me.
I'm CDing so I've got the various diapers, liners, wipes, I'll need wipe solution, I need a wet bag (well...it would be ideal, but a trash can with a laundry bag will work fine if I can't get a wet bag)... really, I can't think of anything else. Oh! Changing pads! I have the reusable changing pads. They were awesome because I used them pretty much anywhere I changed him. I found that I rarely needed them with DS, though, so the probably 8ish I had really weren't necessary...but this one might not be so nice so I'm keeping the extras just in case. Haha. Yeah, that's about all I can think of.
