This is the downstairs changing station. A basket of dry wipes with a squirt bottle of water, plus a changing pad. The cloth diapers and extra diaper covers are in the vintage diaper stacker, and the basket can fit in there on top of the diapers, too. The pail is for carrying the dirties out to the laundry room.
The first time I needed to pack a diaper bag for Phoebe, I realized I didn't have a system for homemade cloth wipes on the go. I know my mom would simply make a washcloth wet and put it in a plastic bag, but I didn't want to have to mess with that every time I wanted to leave the house with a diaper bag.
So I sewed together two upholstery samples from the creative reuse store to keep the dry wipes in and then I keep a water bottle in the diaper bag. The water bottle is also to refresh the thirsty mama, a handy dual function. The stiffness of the upholstery envelope is great for finding in the diaper bag, as I'm usually one-handedly feeling for stuff.
And yes, some photos of Phoebe herself. Genevieve took the two of me with Phoebe - I was quite impressed.
