Diapering is arguably the least glamorous part of parenting. However, it is a necessary evil. The good news is we have cultivated a comprehensive list that will make you the Director of Diapering in no time.

Types of Diaper

The first decision you will have to make is what type of diapers to use – disposable or cloth. I mostly use disposable diapers. I have used cloth diapers occasionally in the past, but I find disposable much easier and more convenient. However, using disposable diapers means you will be buying lots of diapers and often. According to Parents magazine, your baby will use 8 to 12 diapers each day bringing your yearly total well into the thousands. While cloth diapers can help cut costs and are more eco-friendly, they do come with the extra work of washing them. Whether you use disposable or cloth is a personal choice so make sure you choose the option that works best with your lifestyle and buy in bulk!


Diaper & Wipes list

Once you have decided on what type of diaper you are going to use, it’s time to stock your changing station. Some necessities for your tool kit include:


1. Diapers

Have a hefty supply of diapers within reach so you don’t have to worry about constantly restocking. Also, have some diapers in the next size up ready to go. Your baby will be growing quickly and you’ll be prepared to size them up in an instant.


We support organic baby products and so one of our recommendation is the DYPER bamboo diapers which are organic plant based diapers that are environmentally friendly and creates minimal waste.

Responsible • Eco • Soft Absorbent • Convenient


But we understand that some people feel comfortable the famous brands like Pampers and Huggies. For such brands amazon’s subscribe and save program works great. You stay worry free with their monthly / weekly subscription plan and get assured delivery of diapers and wipes for (lets just say) for few years!

2. Wipes: Wipes are essential for getting your baby clean.

Many parents and doctors suggest using fragrance-free wipes to avoid irritation, but it is a personal choice you can make for your baby.

3. Wipe warmer

While a wipe warmer does not have to be at the top of your registry, you will find it very useful especially in the first months, when the baby need warm touch. You and your baby will do not want the shockingly cold wipes especially during the cold winter months.

4. Diaper rash cream

Wet diapers can leave your baby with rough, cracked, or irritated skin. We recommend using a diaper rash cream like A+D cream. Another option is to keep your baby diaper free for few times a day to allow for the skin to air dry.

5. Cotton swabs/Q - tips

Cotton swabs are a great hack for applying diaper rash cream without getting your hands messy or accidently scratching your little one’s sensitive hard to reach areas under skin folds.

6. Changing station

A changing station is best when it comes to changing diapers. You can also make your chest or an old table in to DIY changing station if you like. However a chaining station is uniquely designed for the purpose and it does serve well.

7. Diaper Changing Pad

Changing pads can turn a dresser or a table into a changing station. These pads are portable and can be used anywhere with a changing mat or without one.

8. Waterproof changing pad liners/ mats

Apart from being the easy liners for changing pads, these liners will make changing diapers easy even on the bed or on baby's play mat by themselves. Simply place the mat under your baby and you are good to go; no special changing table required. These can be helpful during travels and if visiting grandparents house. They are easy to wipe clean.

9. A diaper caddy

This handy caddy allows for a quick diaper change anytime, anywhere in the house. Having a caddy or two stashed around your house can save you multiple trips up the stairs with your baby since it brings the changing station to you. There is a lot you can store in the caddy, but a few diapers, travel-sized versions of supplies on this list, a change of clothes, and some toys or teethers to entertain your baby during changing will get you off to a great start.

10. Diaper pail

While there are some very cute and stylish options out there, I am a huge advocate for a diaper pail with a lid. Once you experience your first dirty diaper, you will want to permanently lock out the smell.

11. Pail bags

Most diaper pails require special pail bags which can get expensive. We recommend using diaper pail only for soiled diapers and tossed “pee” diapers in the regular trash can. This will drastically reduce the amount of expensive pail bags I used. If you are worried about your trash can smelling, then place a box of baking soda inside the trash can to absorb the odor. Regularly taking out the trash and swapping out the baking soda once a month has left my home odor-free and my budget much happier!

12. A laundry basket

If you are using cloth diapers, having a laundry basket close by makes for an easy clean-up and keeps dirty diapers separate from the rest of your laundry.

Avoiding Diaper Rash

Due to their delicate skin, newborns are highly susceptible to diaper rashes. Diaper rash appears as bright red, irritated skin. You may also notice your baby is more irritable or uncomfortable than usual. To avoid diaper rash, the Mayo Clinic suggests changing your baby’s diaper frequently, thoroughly cleaning your baby, not making the diaper too tight, and letting your baby go diaper-less as often as possible. A clean baby is a happy baby and a happy baby means a happy mom!
