When it comes to being a mom, there are a lot of things that I’ve stocked up on that haven’t really been essential. But then there are items like baby wipes which have been a must-have as my babies have grown into toddlers. From diaper changes through potty training, having baby wipes on-hand has been the difference between life being easy and the day feeling a bit more challenging!
5 PLACES YOU SHOULD ALWAYS KEEP BABY WIPES
Being a mom to little ones is a busy time of life. It feels like there are so many things to get done each day. Diaper changes are a huge part of life and caring for our babies as they grow. That’s why baby wipes are one of the most essential baby items out there!
As a mom, I needed wipes that I could depend on to help me handle the messes, but I also wanted baby wipes that I felt good about using. Nice ’n CLEAN Baby Wipes check both boxes for me. (They’re also available at H-E-B which makes them so convenient to pick up when I’m out doing our weekly grocery shopping!)
To make life a little bit easier around our house during the diaper and potty training years, I figured out a few essential places to make sure I always had baby wipes. Then I wasn’t running around in the middle a diaper change trying to find wipes!
EVERY ROOM OF THE HOUSE
Personally, keeping a package of baby wipes in every room of the house meant that I was prepared for anything. If you don’t go with every room, I’d at least make sure you have a package or two on each floor of your house for easy access.
It’s easy to start out thinking you’ll always be in the nursery when you’re doing a diaper change. But then the baby needs to be changed right away and you’re in the middle of something else or you don’t feel like walking upstairs, so the diaper change happens in the living room. Having baby wipes in every room is a guarantee that you’ll always have them when you need them!
IN THE NURSERY AND BEDROOM
If you’re not going to have baby wipes in every single room of your house, then at least make sure you have plenty in the room where you have all of your changing supplies. That seems obvious, of course. But I’ve got another little detail from my experience.
Make sure your baby wipes are within reach of the changing table!
Yes, there were quite a few times when I was in the middle of changing a diaper and realized I’d left the wipes on the other side of the room! It’s not the best predicament to be in when you’re mid-change!
IN THE BATHROOM
When you’re potty training, things can get a little crazy and you really never know what room you’re going to be in when you find yourself need baby wipes! So keeping a few packages in every bathroom of the house is the safest way to approach potty training.
Nice ’n CLEAN Baby Wipes are available in individual packs (56-64 ct), Triple Packs (168-192 ct), and Large boxes (336-384 ct) which makes it easy to get enough baby wipes for all of our needs! Getting a large box and stashing individual packages in all of the bathrooms has been a lifesaver around our house!
IN THE CAR
One lesson I learned over and over again when my kids were young was that it’s essential to have an emergency diaper changing and/or potty training kit in your car!
It doesn’t have to be anything too complicated. If your child is still in diapers, I recommend putting together just a few things so you’re prepared:
- Package of baby wipes
- Extra diaper
- Plastic bag
- Extra set of clothes
If you’re pottying training, the items I recommend for the car are a bit different but still very basic.
- Package of baby wipes
- 2-3 plastic bags
- 2 extra pairs of underwear
- Extra set of clothes (2 pairs of pants or shorts)
- a pair of disposable training pants (if you’re using them)
Every time you need to use something from your emergency car kit, be sure to replace it immediately! That’s the thing that got me in trouble a few times. As soon as you get home from your outing, refill your emergency kit!
IN THE DIAPER BAG
I know the diaper bag probably seems like one of the most obvious places to keep baby wipes. It is but that doesn’t mean that we don’t need a reminder. I can think of a few times when I ran out of baby wipes while we were out and about.
So, my tip for the diaper bag is to carry two packs of baby wipes in it! That way you’ll be prepared for any diaper change when you’re on the go. If you’re like our family, you’re on the go a lot!
When I would use the last wipe in one package, I always added a second new pack of wipes to the bag so I’d have two with me at all times!
