    This may sound silly, but I'm trying to be as organized as I can. With that in mind and since I'm on bed rest, to keep the time going I try to find new ideas.

    I have prefolds and will be getting nappy covers next week. My question is where do you stack them, how do you stack them so they are looking neat and ready to use?

    What do you do with your bins that you stash dirty nappies in?

    Please share pics if you can. This new momma would like some organization. :winkwink::thumbup:



    Thank you!:flower:

    Well our most frequently used ones are sitting in boxes on top of a chest of drawers and the rest are in boxes in the bottom of LO's wardrobe, but that's only because we're trying to sell our flat and OH said they made the bedroom look too cluttered how I really like them. As soon as we move, I'm getting them all out again - I can't wait cos we'll have two babies in nappies then!

    This is how I would choose to have them - on Billy bookcases from Ikea, pretties shown off and anything messy like random boosters or prefolds in children's boxes with mesh sides, also from Ikea:

    Wow that's actually a very old pic, I don't have half of that now, it's all been replaced!

    We have one nappy bucket next the loo in the bathroom (for dirty nappies) and one in the hallway between the living room and the bedroom. If we were in a house over two floors, I would have one upstairs and one downstairs.

    We don't have pretty nappies as such - Imogen's are stacked on a billy bookcase with wraps and boosters in these boxes from Ikea

    Teddy's are stacked in a little lloyd loom ottoman I recovered to match his nursery and his wraps are in a wicker basket on his windowsill.

    I keep mine on a shelf up high in my bathroom because she can't reach them and make a mess. We change her in the bathroom on a mat on the floor. No bins as I use extra large Monkeyfoot wetbags instead.

    When she was younger and not mobile, I kept them in boxes on her changing unit in her room.

    When we had a downstairs loo, we had a nappy bucket in there. Now we just have one in each bedroom for the kids.

    I feel so sad.. As mine are all in the bottom drawer of a unit! I should invest in shelving to show them off!

    This is quite an old pic (from christmas, hence the snowman!) and these days they're in a different shelving unit (just cos i'm moving house in a few weeks) but here's how we had it for aaaaaaaaaages... I use a big purple bucket that I got from ebay for the nappy bin.
