I’ve partnered with Huggies® to share with you my Twin Diaper Changing Stations for my twins! I say twin stations for my twins because I set up two diaper changing stations, one upstairs and one downstairs, and while they’re similar, they aren’t identical!
I had a few of these three-tiered carts, so I re-appropriated them from their previous locations in the house and turned them in diaper supply carts for my diaper changing stations. I call them stations instead of tables because they are truly set up as full stations: I have two changing pads atop the dressers, plus two diaper supply carts, two laundry baskets, and two diaper pails both upstairs and downstairs. I was not messing around when it came to setting up the house for the twins! In the beginning, we practically lived downstairs with them and I was not about to carry them upstairs to their nursery every hour or two just to change diapers! And since they’re now sleeping in their cribs, we use the upstairs nursery more, but that downstairs changing table still comes in handy.
When I originally set up the diaper supply carts, I stocked them full of diapers, but I also stocked two small baskets with baby lotion, diaper rash cream, gauze bandages and petroleum jelly for Hank’s circumcision care, along with antibacterial hand gel for the adult’s hands. Plus, I keep a roll of trash bags handy so we can quickly change out the dirty diaper pail bags.
And, I keep the carts stocked with Huggies® diapers!
While the carts were set up identically in the beginning, now the changing cart upstairs differs a bit from the one downstairs at this 4-month point. We primarily only use the downstairs diaper changing station during the day, so I only keep it stocked with daytime diapers, whereas upstairs, I keep a row stocked with Huggies® Overnites.
What we love about Huggies® Diapers is that they are super absorbent and have great elastic bands which save us from blow-outs if we put the diapers on correctly. My husband hates diapers that don’t have the yellow-to-blue wetness indicator strip, so he’s a big fan of Huggies®. And, I like that Huggies® don’t have garish designs printed on them which sometimes show through the babies’ clothes. I guess it’s the photographer in me doesn’t like that! How cute are the Winnie the Pooh and friends characters?
It’s truly amazing how many diapers we go through with these babies! Usually my record is changing eight diapers before noon, but just a few weeks ago, I changed six diapers in an hour – two when the babies woke up, two because they both pooped, and two more because we were leaving for a doctor’s appointment and they both had wet diapers! Whew! In just a few months, I went from never having changed a baby’s diaper before to being able to change a diaper in the dark in just a few minutes without getting any poop on my hands!
