I know some of you have posted pics before, but I'd love to see how everyone keeps their diapers (shelves, drawers, etc).<br><br>
And changing areas too if they're separate areas.<br><br>
TIA

Anybody?<br>
I'm trying to figure out what to do with our room, and what furniture we'll need.

There are some in this album. I <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> my changing table. We got it at JcPenny. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Dh only likes to use AIO's, so they go in the top drawer so he can find them. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll"> Fitteds go on the top shelf of the cabinet, prefolds and covers on the middle shelf. And wipes, pail liners, wetbags, etc. go in the bottom drawer.<br><br>
Ds' pj's & socks, go in the middle, and then we hang up all his clothes in the closet.<br><br>

ds is sleeping so I can't take a pic, I can try later on. We have a closet organizer in his closet. We put and extra 3 shelves (two on one side and one on the other side). I keep his cloths hung on the two racks on the left side of his closet and his diapers on the bottom shelf on the right side. It's hard to explain so I will get a pic up later. I love this system. It's neat and out of the way, yet quick and easy. I change ds in his crib, with the wipe warmer on a small table beside and the diaper pail inbetween.

Well I don't have a pic - will try to take one later if I can, but basically we have a changing table - one side is open with 3 shelfs each with a basket and the other side has a door and is closed but also has 3 shelfs - no baskets. In the baskets I keep fitteds in one basket, AIOs in another (for DH's use) and wipes and doublers in another. On the other side I keep the overflow :LOL as well as other stuff like rash cream, wool wash, baby soap - that kind of thing. Next to the changing table is a closet and on the closet is a rack type thing with hooks - I hang wool covers on that (overflow goes in the cabinet!).<br><br>
It works out pretty well. If I had it to plan over again though I think I would have gotten a regular all open changing table and bigger baskets because I'm always running out of room. The changing table we have is cool because it will convert to a regular cabinet later on, but still - would be nice to have more diaper stash room.

<a href="http://community.webshots.com/photo/133626252/173105832JplBsT" target="_blank">Diaper Setup/Changing Area</a>.<br>
The wood shelves are $5/each at Ikea.<br>
Coated wire baskets were a 3 pack for $10 at KMart (the other one is somewhere else).<br>
Dresser was the one my grandmother bought for my parents when my mom was pregnant with me. It's been beat up by me, my sister, and my ex, and is still in great shape. We'll either let ds beat it up as he grows up or pass it on to my sister if we ever have enough money to get new dressers.<br>
Diaper pail was $3 at Walmart.<br>
Sometime this week (probably Friday) dh is going to snag a dowel from Home Depot to cut up and attach to the wood that's up against the wall so I have somewhere to hang the wool we just started using (instead of me just throwing it on the unused bed). I'm guessing that'll be less than $10 total.<br><br>
HTH!<br><br>

Well, I don't know what your budget it. This table isn't cheap but it's hands down the best table I've seen and/ or used. I know it's not the case with you, but if you have two in dipes it's a godsend.<br><br><a href="http://store.babycenter.com/product/nursery/furniture/changing_tables/6998" target="_blank">http://store.babycenter.com/product/...ng_tables/6998</a><br><br>
Later it converts to a desk. I will say though, don't order it from Babycenter unless you absolutely have to. It has big trays on either side, a bar to hang covers up underneath that on both sides (if you put it up that way) and two big shelves under the generous table. We use pegs to hang up the covers. It's very safe with rails at both sides. You stand at the end of the baby, which is where the business is all done really.<br><br>
We spend so much time there and consider it a good investment as it's so functional and still looks good.

I just use a hand-me-down dresser with the changing pad on top, and use the old cabinets for extra storage. We own a converted colonial duplex and the laundry used to be the upstairs kitchen.

I can't do a picture tonight (I shouldn't even be up this late--but I have to have a daily dose of this board--I think I'm addicted!) Anyway, I am responding just cause we do it differently. I have always changed my twins on the floor--we have a wool changing pad and also a couple of fleece ones (for poopy dipe changes). I find that the floor is easier--no concern of squirming away or rolling off, etc. Anyway, for storage I have this:<br><a href="http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html/sr=1-10/qid=/ref=sr_1_10/601-5318650-3945747?_encoding=UTF8&asin=B00007LVB4" target="_blank">http://www.target.com/gp/detail.html...sin=B00007LVB4</a> I put the three types of dipes we have in the three bins on the top (I also put their night and nap dipes in another bin and wipes in another). Anyway, in the bottom I do the three types of covers (night/nap wool in one, day wool in another, and then my other covers in the third).

I can't do a pic, either. But here's our system...<br>
We have a basic open style changing table (we never use the top changing area, I find it easier to do it on the floor -bedroom carpet- or the bed) in our bedroom.<br>
All of our diapers (mostly fitteds) are stacked in 2 rows about 6 high on the first shelf, with night-time dipes in the back, favorites in the front.<br>
On the shelf below that I have 2 Ikea buckets (can't remember name) one with covers (all wool) & the other with doublers, liners, inserts.<br>
On a shelf above the changing table mounted to the wall I keep bum cream & a pretty tin bucket (sand pail, really) with some wash cloths in it.<br>
This changing table is right beside our ensuite, so I keep the diaper pail, full of water & a few drops of tea tree & lavender essential oils, there. I also keep the wool wash, bac-out & a recycled baby wipe container full of purified water, lavender & tea tree oils & wash cloths on the bathroom counter.<br>
This system works really well for us- the open system allows DH, DS, DDs and even CD'd DD herself to select the correct items. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

First of all, I'm super lazy so I change on the bed or floor. The kids can usually get there themselves so no heavy lifting <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1"> . I keep a small plastic container on the bed itself or a diaper stacker hanging from the headboard (hey, I'm single so I can do that). The wipes container is on the nightstand.<br><br>
The greatest discovery (my sil gave it to me) for storing the other dipes ( I have dipes in all sizes since I foster children ages 0-4) is a hanging shoe rack like this one:<span style="text-decoration:underline;"><span style="text-decoration:underline;"><a href="http://i3.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/de/b7/c6_2.JPG" target="_blank">http://i3.ebayimg.com/01/i/02/de/b7/c6_2.JPG</a></span></span> This way you can see the pretty dipes! It doesn't take up much space at all. I hang mine in the closet in my room. It's pretty much the only organized area in my house. When they outgrow their diapers you can re-use this for their toys or clothing. It's very sturdy, the pockets are (9.5"W X7"H X10"D). I believe they come in different colors too.

THese are all great ideas! DH is going to build some wall shelves, and I wasn't sure if that would work, but it seems shelves are good.
