Diaper and Wipe Bundles

A few weeks ago I found myself making two separate trips to the ladies room during church to change two separate diapers. Each time, I lugged the whole diaper bag so that I had easy access to the diapers, wipes and blanket. (I don't know about you, but I don't like to lay my babies down on the bare plastic changing tables!) I thought that it would be really convenient to have something to carry two or three diapers, a travel case of wipes and a changing pad. I came home, dug through my scraps and came up with this:

It's about the size of a clutch purse; the pocket holds two or three diapers and a travel case of wipes and then folds out to be used as a changing pad.

It is made of two quilted layers of fabric with a thin fleece batting in between so your little ones have a soft clean surface to lay on. The bundle closes with Velcro.

I have several of these made up and most of them are made from "mommy" fabrics rather than "baby" fabrics. I figured that it's usually all about the baby, let's have something be about the mommy! These are also great when dropping off a toddler to the babysitter when they don't need bottles, formula, etc. You just send them with their little bundle.

These are selling for $12. Get one for your favorite toddler mom!

Tee Pees

These little cuties are for little boys' diaper changes. If you've ever changed the diaper of an infant boy, you know that you have to be quick if you're going to keep everything dry! That's where these little tee pees come in.

You just place the tee pee over the baby's winky while you change his diaper. If you're not fast enough, the tee pee keeps everything (including you!) dry. Then you just throw it in with your next load of laundry and it's ready to go again.

These come with a little card explaining their purpose. Just think how cute a few of these would be tied with ribbon on the top of a baby shower gift!
