We are expecting #2 this week (I hope!!!) and I am setting up a diaper station downstairs so I don't have to go galavanting up 2 flights of stairs umpteen times a day. We have a basic little changing table with 2 open shelves and a pail.<br><br>
How should I store the supplies I need so my 23 month DS doesn't pull it all out all the time? I was thinking baskets, Tupperware boxes, DH suggested a storage unit next to the table... ideas?<br><br>
For reference, we use PFs with covers, mostly BSWW. I want to switch to washing my own (service now) but am waiting until DC is a month or 2 old.<br><br>
TIA!

Baskets sound like a good idea, as long as it's out of DC #1's reach. I dont' know your set up (obviously!), but is there someway to mount some shelves on the wall? Or would that look ridiculous?

The out of reach part is the problem, really. the shelves are on the bottom, perfectly placed for tampering <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br>
Wall shelves might look strange, but DH would jump at the chance to build them!<br>
Maybe I'll go to the Container Store and see what they have, it could inspire me somehow.

It would depend on how determined your kid is, too. I mean, tupperware containers COULD work...unless he's determined to get the lid off <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I use one of those rolling Rubbermaid three drawer things. BUT, I don't have another little one running around. That would work, if you think you're #1 won't be tempted to pull the drawers open.

I store them just like the rest of our clothes: in laundry baskets!<br><br>
If, however, I was ever caught up on the laundry, they would go in the little chest that I have designated for them next to the changing table.<br><br>
Actually, in real life, the pack-n-play that we got as a shower gift is used exclusively as a landing pad for clean clothes out of the dryer/off the line, and if it's not too full we can get to the changing table (which is attached). If I were smart about it, I'd just use the "bassinette" part of the playpen to store clean diapers, and they'd be in much easier reach than in the chest. (It's not, however, the most aesthetically pleasing solution.)

I got a hanging diaper bummis bag for our second station, and wanted to get some baskets, but haven't found big enough ones.
