I'll go ahead and admit that the diaper changing station took a lot of precedence over other things as far as organizing went. I just couldn't stand the idea of being knee deep in a dirty diaper and not having what I needed. That's just one of the things that goes with being a first time mommy. The one thing I knew for sure that was going into my changing station were Huggies diapers.
So the months coming up the delivery I pinned a ton of ways to organize the baby changing station. I finally settled on my own way of doing things, and a year later it as stayed the same tried and true way.
The one product I've come to trust the most has been Huggies.
We are just a Huggies family.
My mother used them on my sister and I. My sister used them for my nephew, and now I'm using them for Harrison.
If I'm being frank, I tried about 4 brands when Harrison first came home from the hospital and this is the only one I wanted to stick with. Issues I had with other popular brands included the infamous blowout, but the hands down worst was that the lining in one brand literally stuck to his little boy parts and I had to peel it off at every change. In my diapering comparisons, Huggies Sung & Dry definitely stops leaks better than the Luvs Super Absorbent.
It was so bad that before I had used up all the other diapers we had that I literally spent every diaper change that my husband was home lamenting the fact that once these were gone we were only every using Huggies diapers again.
Once that was all settled I could sleep well knowing that the baby was fast asleep in his Huggies with up to 12 hours of triple layer protection to stop leaks and Mama wasn't going to be getting up to change a diaper in the middle of the night.
Except for that time we had the virus.
Luckily our beloved Huggies Snug & Dry kept the blowouts to a minimum.
Aside from our Huggies diaper must-have, our changing station has grown to include a few things that I've deemed must haves, especially with a little boy:
- Petroleum Jelly
- a few types of light lotion
- a thick cream for dry skin spots
- good diaper rash ointment
- teething oil
- a vapor rub for runny noses
- Huggies Natural Wipes
I like to keep all my necessities in a rectangular wicker basket on the top of the dresser, and then in the drawer right below I keep a box of wipes.
A little note on something else I do - I save all my Huggies Rewards points in that drawer until I've got a good handful and then I enter them all in on their website. It's helped me keep better track of where they all are.
You probably also noticed the wipes warmer, I can't decide how much of a necessity I deem that to be. When we are home over a long break I put wipes in it, and use my drawer of baby wipes to refill it. Otherwise during a regular work week the wipes dry out in the warmer since we don't use as many at home.
Regardless, it's there and apart of the line-up.
I shopped at Kroger to get our Huggies diapers and if you'd like to get some to add to your diaper changing station as well you can find them there. If you stock up your changing station I'm sure you'll qualify for their "Baby Me" Event.
Shop at Kroger during the "Baby Me" Event going on between 3/20/16 - 4/2/16 and spend $40 on participating baby items so you can receive a $10 off coupon good towards anything at Kroger. (while supplies last)
