Giveaway : This is How I Store My Cloth Diapers (I WANT TO WIN JOLI DIAPERS!)

Cloth Diaper Malaysia is having a giveaway again. This time round it's the JOLI Diapers which is sponsored by Lovely Goody.

Let me share here on how I store or organize TY's diaper stash here. Hmm.. Let's see. I think I do store or keep the cloth diapers almost anywhere or everywhere that I could think of. To be more specific, it's places where there is possibility that I might need to do diaper change. Well, I got to admit am a lazy mama to begin with.

1. Laundry area
I have a laundry basket where I keep those cloth diapers that is washed and cleaned but yet to go through the "stuffing" process (for pocket diaper) or the soaker snapping process for other diapers. This laundry basket is usually placed at downstair at home near the laundry area which is not too far away from the dining room as well. In any chance when I need to do diaper change but is lazy to go to my room upstair to get the diaper, then I'll just simply "searched" for the needed diaper here.

2. My Parent's House
Up next, I do store some of TY diapers at my parent's home too. My mum look after TY when am at work. So obviously I'll need to bring some diapers over to my parent place as well so that they can do the diaper change. For that, I'll store the diapers in a waterproof bag which is used to be my swim bag. I have 2 of such bag which I use alternatively. Each time I'll send 1 of the bag over to my parent place and leave it there.

The bag will be at my parent's house for the next 2- 3 days.  After that I'll bring over the 2nd bag to interchange with the first bag. This is sort of to "replenish" the cloth diapers "stock" at my parent's place.

3. My Car
Since TY is a "frequent traveller" in my car, I do store some cloth diapers in my car as well. As I mentioned earlier, am a lazy mama. It'll be quite hassle for me to remind myself to bring some cloth diapers in every outing. Sometime it is an ad-hoc decision that I decided to go for an outing with TY. That is why I always keep some cloth diapers in wet bag in my car.

For this, am loving the wet bag that comes with 2 compartment where I can store the clean cloth diaper in the dry section and the soiled diapers in the wet section. Save me the need of having 2 wet bag. Plus the wet/dry bag comes with a handle that I can easily hang it to the chair.

4. Living Room
I usually watch movie in the living room (like everyone do). There is a few occasion when it come to the most exciting heart throbing part of the movie, TY suddenly want me to change her diaper. This is so "turn off" that I got to run and rush to my room upstairs to get the diaper to do the diaper change before I can continue to enjoy the movie. Since then I decided to store some diaper in the living room as well!!!

I usually store about 2 to 3 pcs of diaper in one of the side table drawer to keep the diapers out of sight so that the living room will look less messy especially if there is guest who came to visit unexpectedly.

5. Storage Room
I do have a different storage for those brand new unused cloth diapers which I will store in the storage room. These include those brand new cloth diaper that I want to sell off since TY's diaper stash is too large. Some of it is those that I bought intended for next baby though am not sure myself when the next baby will be here. :P

I store these in a semi transparent storage box with cover so that I can tell what is the content of the box even without opening the box since I have a few storage box in the storage room. As am not going to use these diapers on TY, I keep the box covered at all time to keep it out from dust and dirts.

6. In My Room

TY is sleeping with me in our room. I do store some of the diapers next to her convertible cot using a diaper stacker which is tied to her cot. These diaper is store convenient next to her cot so that it is within my hand grasp. This is important to me especially when TY being cranky or when my laziness got hold of me. Hahaha... When my laziness hit me at peak, even 2 steps walk to get the diaper might feel like it's a 2 miles walk. :P

Finally, the wardrobe is where I store the majority of TY diapers collection. I make use of the existing built-in wardrobe that I have in my room to store TY's diaper stash. Initially I use only one compartment shelves. But as TY's diaper stash grow, it is occupying more and more shelves now.

The top shelve is the diapers that I'll hardly reached out for. Those is usually the diapers that TY have already outgrown but yet I still want to hoard over it. Probably will be keeping it for next baby.

The second shelve from top is where all the other diapering accessories like the additional insert and soaker, booster, prefold, liners and even flats (aka traditional lampin) is located. This is also where usually I put the EMAB bottom balm.

The third shelve is the diapers that I reached out most as this shelve is just at the right level where I can have a full view of the diapers without bending my knee, etc.  

The diapers on the left on this shelves is usually the diapers I use mostly for daytime only. The middle column is diapers that have narrower crotch and is trim enough to be wear under the clothes. Basically these is the diaper that I like to use for outing. Those on the right comprise mostly of fitted for night use. As TY is a heavywetter, am swear by fitted diaper for night diapering.

Lastly, the diapers on the 4th shelve is those diapers in preparation to replenish those in 3rd shelves after those in the 3rd shelve is used. This is also where I keep all the diapers cover like those PUL cover, fleece cover and soaker, as well as the woolies like wool longies and shorties.

And do you know that it is also for my eye candies to keep the diapers in the wardrobe in such a way. I can get a full view of the colorful diaper stash simply by slide open the wardrobe and sometime it does help to de-stress myself too when am looking at those.. :P
And well, that's how I store/ organize TY's cloth diapers stash. Am just praying hard that I can win for the grand prize of this giveaway as the prize looks really promising for use on heavy wetter which exactly what I need for TY.

O-M-G. I am speechless. I wanna have a stash like yours but hubby is very apprehensive about CDs. Am so gonna write a long email to you to seek support and tips! Good luck on the contest! (I put mine too but I have only 2 teeny weeny CD hehee)

MH Yap said...

Lols... the stash doesn't grow overnight. Hubby is apprehensive about it initially too. But he finally gave in after that.

Anyway, slowly but surely you can built up the CD stash as well. Good luck to you in the giveaway too!! :)

Zatil said...

wow..seriously impressive!

Cloth Diaper Malaysia said...

OMG, I wanna pengsan look at your stash! Funniest of all is you keep diapers in the drawer in the living room. LOL!!

May i ask what brand is the wetbag with 2 compartments, I think I need one too :)

Thanks for your entry!

MH Yap said...

@ Zatil : It seems like I have invited unwanted attention here. Don't feel impressive on the stash. It hurt my pocket to get that stash actually... :P

@ Farhana : I didn't intend to keep it in the living initially though. But experience told me it's better to keep in living room as well especially for a lazy mama like me... Hahaha..

That wet/dry bag that am using is Planet Wise. It's selling locally in MY as well but quite costly. I think it would be better cheaper if you can get someone to sew it instead of buying the Planet Wise wet/dry bag.
