We've got a very small space and baby needs to share a dresser with me. It's a big one (baby has 2 full sized drawers and two small drawers that would be used by an adult for socks or underwear), but I don't know how I'm going to stuff 28 one size fitted dipes in there (they are a lot bulkier than the NB pf's I have) and still have room for clothes and blankets. How do people do this? Any solutions? I'd love to see pics!

I have a changing table in the boys' room. I store most of my pockets in a basket on top of the table, but I keep all my fitteds and covers (as well as the boys' socks) in one of <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/70115578" target="_blank">these</a> that I bought from Ikea.<br><br>
Will try to find you a pic soon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I have one of those 3 drawer plastic things in our downstairs bathroom that holds all our daytime diapers (12ish OS pockets, 24 premium prefolds, covers and doublers) then we have another one upstairs where the bedrooms are that holds extra diapers and nighttime stuff.

i have one of the three drawer rubbermaid things that holds our fitteds, covers, and extra random diapers. the diapers we use most are in the living room in three pop up kids bins from ikea, lined up against the wall. not fancy, but it works lol. theres one for aplix pockets (that dh uses), one for prefolds and covers, and one for snap pockets.

I have a combo dresser changing table but needed more room so I added a shelf above the changing table. ($11 from Walmart) I LOVE it. I keep my flats prefolds and fitted (in the basket) on top the top drawer has covers acessories snappi pins and AIOs and the side cabinet has 2 more baskets<br>
1 has sposies<br>
2nd has extra pail liners wet bags etc..<br>
the small wire basket attached above I use to air out covers keeps the from piling up on the changing table..<br><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v101/Ceciliasmom/100_2125.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...m/100_2125.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v101/Ceciliasmom/100_1934.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...m/100_1934.jpg</a><br><a href="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v101/Ceciliasmom/100_1935.jpg" target="_blank">http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v1...m/100_1935.jpg</a>

Octobermom, thanks so much for the pics!! Installing a shelf above the dresser is a great idea. Right now I have a gigantic mirror above my dresser which belongs to my landlady. I think I'm going to have it removed and put up one of these instead: <a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00116680" target="_blank">http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/00116680</a><br>
I use wool covers that need to air dry so I'm thinking I could put a couple of these rails on the under side of the shelf to hang them from:<a href="http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50072645" target="_blank">http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/50072645</a> The only bummer is it means I have to make another 90 minute drive up to IKEA for three things. Maybe I can find something similar online.<br><br>
I also found this diaper sling, but it doesn't solve my problem of what to do with wet covers that need to be hung up:<a href="http://www.motherhoodnaturally.com/diaperstorage.htm" target="_blank">http://www.motherhoodnaturally.com/diaperstorage.htm</a><br><br>
Thanks again for all the great ideas. Keep 'em coming!

Now they are just stacked in my china hutch in the bedroom with covers and snappi's in a basket. We do only pfs now.<br><br>
But when I did pocket diapers and has 2 in dipes (only have 1 in dipes now lol) I had then in on of these <a href="http://www.walmart.com/ip/Seed-Sprout-7-Shelf-Closet-Organizer-in-Pink/4888330" target="_blank">http://www.walmart.com/ip/Seed-Sprou...n-Pink/4888330</a><br>
Mine was off white in color and then I rig it up to hang from the door closest to the changing table. It worked great! (Until I quit using the changing table. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">)

Same here. I have one of those hanging diaper stackers, but it's usually empty. And the laundry basket is full. Especially with two kids in pocket diapers, the diapers don't get stuffed until they are about to go on the child.
